new tayyab, fieldgate street, london
a bunch of visiting punjabis and i went for lunch the other day.
unanimous verdict: awful.
we ordered everything in sight: the daily special (kofta) to the tarka dal, the karahi stuff, the dry gosht and the kebabs. within an hour we were feeling the dryness induced by the vast amounts of oil we'd ingested. even the kebabs were boring - the mutton chops were dry and tasteless, ditto the chicken tikkas.
the only salvation were the superbly made seekh kebabs and the crisp tandoori roti, still the best in london.
