Best time to go to Tayyab's? [London]
After reading so much about Tayyab's, we're set on going there while we're in London. Is there a time when the place is less busy? It sounds like people are waiting quite a while for a table even with a reservation. I don't mind going at an off time, but I'd rather not spend precious sightseeing time waiting for a table.
Thanks in advance!
I was passing there yesterday (Sunday) at about 2.30pm after going to the market on Brick Lane and there was no queue. From the outside it seemed busy - as in plenty of people eating - but there were several free tables. So Sunday lunch time or late lunch looks like a good time. I also imagine that lunch times on week days would be quieter than evenings, but I'm not sure - and you would probably be best going early (12.00 ish) or late (2pm ish).
If you prefer busier times, then try Needoos round the corner - it's run by the previous manager of Tayyabs and has an almost identical menu and standard of food. It gets less busy than Tayyabs in the evenings (and there were loads of free tables yesterday afternoon).
