Been to this restaurant on 28 dec. I do appreciate the food, it was better than average but the reason I gave 2 stars just because of their very very poor service. When we entered it was full of customers so requested a table for 4 to the guy he said give me a moment... i did see there was... More

After hearing such rave reviews I was expecting something special. The atmosphere and energy of the restaurant was very enjoyable and interesting, however the food was nothing special (except the lamb chops which were very good).

I don't normally eat here if in Aldgate, I generally go to Lahore Kebab House. However my wife wanted to go here. Food is fantastic as you would expect, we had sheikh kebabs (not as good as LKH), chicken tikkah (really moist and nice spices) and lamb karahi (meat was slightly undercooked) all with roti. To finish we had a... More

Had a fantastic day out with family and friends for lunch in Tayyabs. Mouth watering starters and main course were amazing. The cost is also reasonable and well worth the visit again. Will definitely recommend. Try seekh kabab and chicken tikka. Simply fabulous.

For 10 years I have raved about Tayyabs. I visited last Sunday evening and instead of having the fabulous mixed grill that I always have (my companion had it and it is still excellent), I decided on a change and had the dry meat curry, pulaw rice and naan. The service which is always neither here nor there was unchanged... More

I've been to Tayyabs several times and there is no doubt that if you like this type of cuisine then you'll love the food at this restaurant. This place is not about fine dining or indeed a wonderful dining experience, it is much more about authentic wonderful food, served quickly and without fuss. One word of caution, this place is...

The food here is really nice and is worth visiting for this alone. I've been a few times and had a pretty big range of dishes and the quality is quite a lot higher than the Brick Lane rivals offer. The service can be a bit hit and miss, the seating a bit cramped, and you'll often have to queue... More

Have been to Tayabs many times and the food is usually good, especially the mixed grill starter, as wax the case on this occasion. However the main dishes were full of oil, small portions even though we ordered a large at nealy 16 a dish. The paratha we ordered was no differant from a tandoori roti - not good! However,... More
