Indian/Pakistani....Better than Tayyabs in Whtechapel ???
I love tayyabs in whitechapel ,,,the best chops ever, great food, nice atmos...reasonable...BUT...a line up like for a concert on a friday or saturday,,,so......i confess i even tried on a dodgy recommendation another joint nearby Mirch Masala...chops were definitely superb...but atmospher of a bus station and the mains were crap....so .....desperately seeking an alternative to Tayyabs in whitechapel or nearby that a) has great food b)has a modicum ot atmophere and c) has either a licence or BYOB policy.....is this too much to ask ?
so curry lovers ....suggestions please...
I prefer Needoo to Tayyabs. It's run by an ex-Tayyabs manager and is BYOB. Very similar menu and in my opinion some parts of it are better executed. (Though naans are a bit variable.) I'm a particular fan of the dry meat. Also Needoo has much less queue than Tayyabs!
I'm not sure about the branch in Whitechapel as I've always been to the Tooting branch of Mirch Masala, but their karahi gohst is wonderful. And they do reliably good naan.
I personally prefer the Delhi Grill and Lahore Kebab House to Tayyabs.
Lahore is better food although not by very much and the atmosphere at Tayyabs is much better. Delhi Grill much better on all fronts I think apart from lamb chops.
