Did not have a good time at this restaurant. We were waiting upstairs for some time for the last person in our party to arrive, and we weren't notified that the credit machines were out of order. They waited until we were seated for them...More

Food was super quick and tasted amazing. Although, they rushed you along after an hour or so. But you can bring your own drinks which is great!!!

Speedy service with a fast turnaround time for mass customers, so good if you're in a hurry. However, very small portions and a very overrated, small lamb chop.

My Indian week continuous with this place. Tayyabs is what you would get if you crossed an East End curry house with a street riot. By this, we mean that you’ll have to physically elbow and shove your way into the restaurant, and then up...More

Felt so rushed even though it wasn't that busy. We had got halfway through starters when they came out with mains and crammed them on the table. Food was ok but didn't live up to the hype. Bland rice and paneer. Lamb chops were nice...More

Firstly, the sheer size of this is amazing and great to see a successful restaurant working on expanding. Decent spread out multiple seating areas to accomodate the never ending queue. We were first seated near the grill where the smoke was too much for us...More

Probably the worst Indian curry I've tasted in London. Everything was overly salty, the naan bread was dry and the aubergine cooked badly. Gave them the benefit of the doubt the first visit, but was just as bad the second. The service is also rushed...More

Working nearby we started coming here on occasion and the food was a highlight of our day. Really good cooking and flavours that make you think you're going a bit over the top for lunch. We kept it simple though and had nothing that disappointed....More

I visited with family (teenagers). We had a short wait before we were seated, and considering they were full up with people dining and waiting, our food was ordered and delivered to our table very quickly. If you want alcohol you have to bring your...More

No doubt this is the best quality/price ratio in town when it comes to Indian (Pakistani to be precise). Their cuisine is amazing, the lamb chops delicious, and the curry very good. But service is not the best, you might find your table a bit...More

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
