There’s something about a tender lamb curry that just melts in your mouth…
Tayyab’s has grown in size and popularity since being founded in 1972.
On the recommendation of a friend, we excitedly ventured over to have a little curry night at the family owned and run business in Whitechapel.
Luckily for us we were prepared and had made a reservation, otherwise expect a wait if you head over there on a busy weekend.
We realised it was deceptively large as we were led upstairs; though it was no longer the original small cafe, the upstairs seating still allowed a relaxed atmosphere, intimate enough to catch up with friends whilst still offering the vibrant hustle and bustle of any popular Indian restaurant.
I was appointed: Chief Food Selector. Thanks KP. For the role & photo.
Though most Indian restaurants host most UK favourites. At Tayyabs,
I would definitely try the Paneer Tikka, Chicken Tikka
or the signature Lamb chops.
For main, maybe try a Biryani?
or something with more masala.
The Gosht was just how I love a lamb curry.
Tender and rich in flavour.
“Our karahi dish with lamb, garlic, masala, and green chillies adding a distinctive kick.” – Tayyabs
Accompany your dishes with rice or buttery naan
And you’ll have a great Indian feast waiting for you!
The restaurant has a Bring Your Own (Alcohol) policy so if you are that way inclined, feel free. This also helps the bill remain very affordable.
