Tayyabs is a well known place. It is always busy for a reason. Their food is freshly prepared and compared to other curry houses you can taste the difference in the freshness and meat quality. Love their Seekh Kebabs. And for lunch if you are short on time be sure to try their famous Kebab rolls. Freshly prepared succulent and... More

Been coming here for years and it's gone so down hill. The sauces are thin and seem watered down. The dry meat wasn't even dry meat, meant to be the signature dish but something was definitely wrong with it, we had it taken back. I won't come back to this place even though it had been a firm favourite for... More

Never to return. The food is below average: as an individual who comes from an Indian background and having grown up eating out at curry houses, I can say that there is nothing special about the food here. It is 100% tailored to a customer that wants to feel like he's eating Indian, but that customer's only foolish if he's... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by few of my London based friends and since then I am a hard core fan of this place. The food is great and the service is fab. Staff is very friendly. We ordered a variety of food and loved all of it. It's very pocket friendly restaurant. Definitely a go back place :)

I regret not reading some of the reviews on here before visiting the restaurant The hygiene rating is 1/5 I've been told for months by friends that I should go to tayyabs and finally decided to last night. 1st as soon as we were rushed to our seats I noticed the glasses and plates were greasy. We were just given... More

The food is great in Tayyabs. The meat is fresh and tender, the fish is flaky and light, the curries are flavorsome and the naans are fluffy and filling. That being said, there certainly seems to be a discrepancy between menu prices and bill prices; thus lies my gripe. I was in Tayyabs yesterday evening with a group of 10... More

My first visit with 2 Indian friends who recommended it. Very busy, especially for a Tuesday evening. The food was okay but but not spectacular. We were served really quickly though despite it being rammo and I thought it was really cheap. I would definitely go again.

I do not live far so I go quite regularly. It always has a long queue unless you go at 10 or 10.30pm or during the week (Tuesday or Wednesday). It is usually noisy and crowded. Do not bother booking a table as (at least from my experience) they do not care and you still need to queue. Besides some... More

A very unpleasant experience today at Tayyabs. We were a group of 20 people saying goodbye to a dear colleague. We were only served with one waiter whose English was very limited. We were refused tap water and we also asked staff to turn up the heating. Again they refused to do this. One of the managers came and started... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
