Indian on the Lane
London's east side is a booming metropolis for international cuisine. A staple on the Brick Lane circuit is of course Indian. With over 15 Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants on this street alone, the experience can be somewhat daunting when trying to find one that won't give you Delhi belly. Priced oh-so-cheap and providing you with premium service and quality food is Muhib's Indian restaurant.

Take a stroll down Brick Lane on Sunday from about 6pm onwards and you will have a representative from every one of the 15 restaurants (plus more) offering you culinary deals to entice you into their dining hall. At Muhib's you can manage to squeeze out a deal worth dining for which includes entrees, mains, naan and rice plus two glasses of wine for each of your entourage for an average of 10. Not bad for a Sunday night feed.

Once you are seated, the menu does have you salivating with its extensive choices from all over India. If you are a carnivore go for the Chicken pakoras as a starter, they are juicy and crispy and come with a spicy dipping sauce to enhance the flavour. A staple in our group, and a favourite amongst the vegetarians, is the Onion bhajis, which get ordered every time (usually by me). These balls of fried, onion goodness, spiced to perfection, are winners.

Other options for mains are the lamb choices of Sheesh kebab and Meat samosas.

Once you have finished every crumb on your plate, it is time to continue your Eastern-influenced journey and head on to your main course. The traditional Indian lamb curry wins hands down. Just the right amount of spices and mild enough for the masses. Team it with Jasmine or Palau rice and you cannot go wrong.

If you are feeling extra indulgent then the side of Garlic and cheese naan will have you giddy.

Just when you thought you couldn't eat another bite, out comes the after-dinner mint chocolates. The perfect ending to a substantial meal
