Grand re-openening after massive refurbishment last night and a new neon sign proclaiming just: "Tayyabs". So out with the New and in with the new which is now not New.

 

Packed celeb crowd last night (well one minor Scottish TV actor anyway) and great food including Payahs (sheep's trotters in broth), Haleem ( a long cooked dish of meat and dahl whereby the meat dissolves fully into the lentils so what looks like a regular dahl dish is packed with the aroma and flavour of meat) Nihari (lamb shanks in a thick sauce) and all the usual chops, tikkas, kebabs and curries.

 

A nice touch was the profuse thanks Fahro and I received from the Tayyab brothers for helping put the place on the map, internet wise that is. Free meals for life would have been nice, but they weren't going that far. Still the place is so cheap it barely makes much difference.

Does that mean there's no longer a separate room for rowdy food board dinners? Have the old and new parts been combined?

Yes and yes. There's a sort of semi partitioned off separate area where the "garden area" used to be, but its not fully separate. You have to see it really. The sweet shop is now incorporated into the restaurant and is now a sweet bar towards the back. It all looks very swish compared to before and is a tribute to their great success really.

I sincerely hope they do. Paying the bill at Tayyab was always something of an embarrassment, but those guys have got to recoup the cost of their refurbishment and they absolutely deserve to create some real profit for themselves ... and their staff.

Despite the low prices I think that car outside with the number plate tells you that they've been doing pretty nicely thank you.

As some of you are aware I am in London for the weekend. It would be good to sup with you at Tayyabs, either on the friday or saturday night,

 

Could people please express their interest and what night they would prefer, so this can be organised ASAP.

OK, it is looking more like friday night then saturday, as the former is the only night kiku can make it.

 

So far we have

 

Adam and Rebecca

John and David (eh, I assume)

clb and partner

Macrosan

Vanessa

Kiku?

 

As my train gets in at 5 and Macrosan has to leave by 9, how is 7?

 

Also, would it be possible for somebody in London to arrange the booking? I promise that if any of you come to Edinburgh, I will not make you cook for me.

Bloody people! I suppose this means I'm going to have to get up from my desk and walk across the bloody road and book a table for friday now (nothing like the personal touch!)
