Foursquare Tips

  • "Tayyabs' long-marinated grilled lamb chops remain one of life's great savoury pleasures - a complex hit of sweet 'n' smoky, hot 'n' spicy flavour, edged with a crisp, blackened strip of fat..."
  • Order the mixed grill, and extra lamb chops if you can handle the meat feast!
  • Don't wear your best outfit here. You'll never get the smell out.
  • bring your own beer or wine.
  • You must order the lamp chops starter - IT'S THE LAW!
  • If you have room left for desserts, give the Raas Malai a try. Delicious! Haven't tasted any this good in all of London
  • The foursquare rating system has gone a bit crazy here, the food is very average, the staff are highly uninterested, plates and glasses are dirty, they don't serve tap water, and its cavernously large
  • Lamb chops are as good as everyone says they are. Food is good & cheap! Definitely a great place!
  • Try to get a seat downstairs. It is less smoky and cooler.
  • Watered down mango chutney, poor mango lassi and tasteless rice. Don't get me started on the price of "not large" main course. As for the rude service, a lesson in how not to run a restaurant. Avoid.
  • ! !
  • go earlier in the week to avoid the line
  • Book online and you'll be seated immediately if you arrive on time. But shh, don't tell the queueing hoards!
  • Byo and order the lamb chops!!!
  • the delicately flavoured lentil and baby aubergine curry (dhal baingun) is a must, with fresh mango lassis.
  • Go to Tayyabs and ignore the curries- they are good but not amazing. However the lamb chops are the best in London. Oh and book a table too.
  • BYO at Tayyabs which keeps things cheap, but at the weekend show up earlier than you want to eat because the (not really justifiable) queue - even if you book - will leave you ravenous.
  • After sitting down they brought over a bottle of water. They charged us 2.50 for it. I asked they to take it off the bill as we hadn't asked for it. They refused, speaking to me like I was a criminal
  • Dirrrty! Therrle are better places in London!
  • Worst service and way overated. Do not bother coming here there are better curry houses than this.
