Tayyabs

A while ago, the boy and I were craving grill so we headed over to Tayyabs in London, a Punjabi restaurant that we heard serves great grills as well as classic dishes. There`s a good variety of vegetarian options as well so plenty to choose from. Overall the food was good with certain dishes better than others, while some were a bit disappointing. The grills were definitely the highlight of the meal so we were happy we got to satisfy our Sunday lunch cravings.

Lamb chops & chicken thighs grills came to the table sizzling and were quite good. Definitely worth ordering if you dine here.

Chicken tikka was ok but far from best. I`ve had quite a few amazing tikkas while travelling in Asia and in London and this one seemed a bit lacking in flavour.

Karahi tarka dahl was lovely and really enjoyed it with the naan.

Okra was unfortunately overcooked which was a bit of a disappointment for my partner as he previously had some really great okra here when he came before a few years ago and was really looking forward to it.

    1. yeah it`s a pity as this place often has a huge queue outside so my expectations were really high which might be the reason I didn`t enjoy it so much :) xx

  3. Nice review :)
    Went to Tayyabs a couple of years ago expecting big things but was slightly disappointed, maybe because it had been hyped up SO much.
    I would probably go back, but I definitely wouldn't queue to get in!

    Really enjoying the blog :)

  8. Tayyabs is one of our East London favourites - though is has been a touch patchy at times. We love going with a big group the best!
