About Moo Cantina Brick Lane
Carnivores the world over know that Argentina is home to some of the best beef around, and the meat-eaters of London are increasingly drawn to Whitechapel and the Moo Cantina, where the gaucho lifestyle is alive and well. Situated on the bustling thoroughfare of Brick Lane, their specialities are lesser spotted on the streets of London – lomitos, gourmet toasted sandwiches filled with meats and cheeses, and empanadas, the Argentinian-style pasties packed with flavour.

The stature of South American food is on the up-and-up across England, and of course, London is where one can find some of the best purveyors in the country. Down on Brick Lane – usually more Bangladesh than Buenos Aires – one can find Moo Cantina, an Argentinian restaurant that offers street food and steaks to the hungry public of London. Lunchtime means lomitos, posh sandwiches, and empanadas, pasties which can be filled with beef, chicken, ham & cheese, and then either fried or baked.
There is, of course, far more to Argentinian cuisine, and at a restaurant called Moo Cantina, it would be remiss not to mention the beef options. The steaks available at their outlet on Brick Lane in Whitechapel are impressive, from the standard fillet, ribeye and sirloin options to the more traditionally South American vacio cut, taken from the flank of the cow. Order one up and settle down to some of the best beef in London – just remember to book a table first.
Food was absolutely amazing. I had sirloin and sweet potatoes fries and the meat was tender and juicy. The cocktails were delicious, my favourite was Porn Star. The service was also excellent and friendly. I will absolutely recommend it and I will have to repeat again.
Table was ready on time. Great food and service. It was fast and tasty. The look and feel is nice, very Argentinean. Will definitely come back soon!
Great steak. Cool atmosphere. Attentive staff. Approx £40 PP for food and drinks. Great place for dinner with friends or a date. We really enjoyed our evening.
Pros: Excellent location, cosy atmosphere, great design, delicious menu, friendly staff Cons: the music should be more relative to the character of the restaurant, maybe more jazzy, more ethnic and definetely less pop/dance!
Very good steak place - they waited for my mate to turn up and then knew it was him when he walked in - some sort of wizardry. Only draw back was it was a bit pricey - but that was mainly all the beers we had ... (lads). Nice decor as well ... really authentic Argentinian wallpaper and fluffy cushions.
Fantastic. Quirky little restaurant. Really nice atmosphere and vibe. Authentic Argentine cuisine. Steak ordered by what weight was something different that was a pretty decent touch. Wife is veggie lots for her to choose from. Fried Beef empanadas 😎
The food and service were excellent, a fantastic afternoon in the sunshine. Would thoroughly recommend this little gem in Brick Lane. One of our party was from Brasil and she loved it ... high praise indeed!
It was my second visit and was excellent as the first one.Friendly atmosphere and excellent meat makes you think of definitely come back again.It was perfect end of our day.Thanks for not spoiling it :-) 👍
Was a good lunch and the steak was lovely and the service was good just found it a little bit strange to get charged full price for the Parsley & garlic chips instead of an extra pound when the steak came with fries?
food is incredibly sub-par and way too expensive for what you get. meat is not cooked well. you could do so much better with the ingredients yourself. cocktails are mediocre at best. service is good and the place has a really great atamosphere, just a shame the main attraction is simply not good enough. unless they change they will not survive in london for very long at all.
Enjoyable, I think it's much better suited to slightly smaller groups, there was 10 of us and I think it's better when everyone eats each course at the same time. Good was great and good value as usual.
Lovely steak restaurant in a quirky location with a beautiful interior, friendly staff and incredible food. I would 100% go back there - 2 people, 7pm on a Tuesday, age 21.
Great atmosphere.... Music was bit loud but fun. Food was really good... My friends' steaks were overcooked but the manager exchanged and brought new medium rare steaks for them... Love the sweet potato fries and fillet steak.
The service was so friendly and they didn't even mind when we stayed till close! The waitress also gave us a dessert wine on the house. Would 100% go again
Fab food! Great service! Excellent atmosphere! Would definitely return and recommend to all my friends. Even though it was New Year's Eve we weren't rushed and had a great experience
Good food and good service. We went as a couple and enjoyed but seems like it would be a good group venue as the atmosphere was lively. I would dine again and recommend to others.
I come here every time I visit London. Staff are always smiley and helpful. Food is orgasmic and prices are reasonable. Will visit again soon for another milanesa :)
Really good food and great service! i eould go back again many times. The place is cozy and its one of th best meats I have tried in London
Very good food ( as an Argentinian I have to said that was really really good ) price, good wines , and people was friendly and very nice.
Moo was as good as ever - great steaks, beer and even the music. My steak was cooked medium-rare when I asked for medium, but it was delicious so I didn't complain :)
Me gusto mucho, el ambiente muy agradable,la comida muy buena pero los cocteles mejor.. Si vas antes de las 7:00pm esta la happy hours que stan genial!!
GREAT ATMOSPHERE, lovely staff and delicious food. Couldn't rate this place higher - the best place for a group booking - - and such good value too!
good enviroment, amazing service from our venezuelan waitress and very tasty food. this was a lunch for 5 team of developers very hungry for some argentina stake.
Great staff, service and ambience - the chicken escalope burger (with fried egg was good - on their street food menu). A very welcome addtion to Brick Lane We'll be going back
Excellent as always. Great food, good ambiance, amazing cocktails. Love this restaurant. It never disappoints. Definitely recommend getting the steak here. Best steak you'll ever have.
Super tasty meat and amazing dessert (panqueque). Friendly staff and nice experience. Only negative thing they should close the door when it is cold outside :)
My steak was too fatty and the service was poor. The staff (3 of them) had their backs to the restaurant which meant I had to got to the bar to ask for the bill. I would not got back to that Moo instead I would return to Moo in Middlesex Street.
We didn't wait too long to have a sit. Nice menu options, tasty food, cozy place, friendly people and quick service. Definitely coming back with friends!
Fabulous time was had, friendly and attentive staff who really made the experience! Food was seriously spot on! Heartily recommend and can't wait to go back!
Went here with the family - eleven in all and a baby! Such a great welcome. Nice food too - highly recommended for an informal gathering.
Great costumer service, amazing steaks and nice premise. We spent a lovely night in a really good atmosphere. Totally recommended if you are in the area and you enjoy good meat.
We booked a table on 212 for 8 people. The staff were great and the food was great. Made for a most memorable Xmas do!
Friendly staff and great service. Cozy place with dim lights and candles (terrific location for dates). Very good food and selection of wines. Decent prize.
I was happy with everything. It was good service and nice food. Also, staff were friendly and polite. Cozy atmosphere and interesting cocktails. Thank you!
The Service first class the waitresses were very attentive. Great steaks and buzzy atmosphere contributed to a great evening - will be back very soon
Excellent! the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming! The food was absolutely lovely and I'd definitely recommend to other people! We will be coming back!
Beautiful Steak and wine. Will be back. Probably next week :-) gonna bring a group here next time, good value for money too. Well recommended
Really attentive staff. AND the best steak and chimichurri I've had a long time. Will be back and probably every Tuesday for the 30% off!
We very much enjoyed our Christmas lunch, the menu price was reasonable and the food was great. The service was a little slow at times regarding drinks, but not unbearable. Please go to this great independent restaurant.
The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious although my stake was perfectly cold but a bit cold. My friends were very happy with their stakes.
Delicious food and very friendly staff. The Lomiti Porteno was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! The chimichurri was also fab! Going to try and recreate myself!!!
Hospitality and service are on the level which is not corresponding with neighberhood, in one word, excellent. Food and wine above expectations, atmosfere as well, except the music, which is bit a noisy for my taste
Good food, good service if your in Brick lane area and looking for an alternative to a curry you won't be disappointed with Moo. Steaks are particularly good.
Good steak, great wine served by friendly and attentive staff. Cost was a little more than I exabytes we had a lovely evening. I would recommend this restaurant
Great place as always .. Try the Chimichurri mayo with fries, Revuelto gramajo and Sirloin Steak (Medium Well) .. Wait for desserts .. Recommend this place ..
Great atmosphere. Excellent food. I had the chicken that was cooked to perfection. Very tasty. Music is not too loud, great for conversation. Overall a great experience.
Good for a party, great steak. Mixed starter superb. Mixed main not such good value , stick to one steak each. Good wine and lovely service
The food was very good and plentiful, the atmosphere was fun and relaxed, whilst the service was really attentive and friendly. Will most definitely return!
Great place with good food and friendly staff. Bit pricey for what it is, also don't like the tv! Minor personal preferences though. Would recommend
Lovely food- it was slightly expensive especially as there was no veg or salad With the steak. Good overall and I would eat there again
