The service was really poor and it took them almost 30 min just to serve the starters which came separately. The mains were good but you can tell they steam the meat and then mix in with the sauce. Good flavor but the overall dish was average. I don't think I'll go back to that place. However... read more

Nevertheless we enjoyed the food good variety of Indian cuisine available on menu . But definitely not the best I have had in UK.... More

Restaurant recommended and I have been wanting to try it for a long time, unfortunately it didn't live up to expectation, I now know what a battery hen feels like as the tables are far to close together, a lady tried leaving her table to visit the bathroom and knocked some food off ours, her partner completed a bottle of...

Went on a busy Saturday night. Seated immediately. Great atmosphere. The service was good. The food blows away all the bog standard creamy over dyed sauces you get in a lot of restaurants.. Tanyyabs use aromatic spices which taste delicious. Can highly recommend the mango lassi if the spices seem a bit hot.

Fantastic food, highly recommend a jug of Lassi to complement your meal. Had a fantastic evening, eating beautifully spiced dishes. Busy but good service. Only fault we found was that they were unwilling to let us have a glass of tap water. We didn't let that dampen our evening though.

However this time my friends weren't in the mood for a big-ticket meal so they offered me a couple cheapo alternatives, between which I picked this place at... More

Whitechapel
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 cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.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.
