I was first introduced to Lahore by friends, one of which is British/ Indian. The venue doesnt not look like anything either inside or out so had it not been for the former odds are I would never have stopped. Since the first time we have revisited for take out many, many times. Not our choice for sit-in as simply... More

This is a curry and kebab house in the East End of London. It was never going to be a "fine dining" experience. It's unlicensed, so you take your own booze. They don't seem to charge corkage. I was one of 5 guys out for the evening. Two of our party had been here before, so knew exactly what to... More

The good: Grilled starters (especially paneer tikka) and desserts are decent. Bring your own beer policy with a off licence opposite the restaurant. Lots of seating. Not cramped like Tayyabs. Wide range of dishes. Cheap. The bad: -The service is rubbish. The staff appear unenthusiastic. Had to wait 25 minutes for a bill after asking 3 times. It was hard... More

Have come back here after switching to Tayyabs for a spell. That restaurant can still delight but sometimes it's nice to get straight to a table and be able to relax a bit with your kebabs. We came early on a Saturday, got a table for 5 no problem and had food on the table within about 10 minutes! The... More

Wow this place must be kept secret. The food and service is first class and as cheap as chips!!!!! Huge restaurant and they don't take bookings. Not licenced but you can bring your own booze (there is an off licence next door). Busy thriving place lots of families.

Don't go to this place for ambience - just go for the food and order the authentic items like lamb chops, kebabs karahi lamb and methi chicken which is to die for. You do not get a caning for the naans and as it is BYOB, drinks are cheap We are of Kenyan Asian stock and are very fussy about... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
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.
