Would it be worth moving to a suitably titled thread, only because some members who would love to see the pics might not be reading about the Whitechapel dining scene?

in the meantime perhaps we can discuss baby goat or lamb dishes that may be served at tayyabs?

"UK Children" is now a separate thread within the UK Restaurants, easily found but not so easily explained. Unfortunately, there is no way to just create a 2nd section within UK that is non-restaurantish & we didnt want to move this away from the UK section to "General" or merge it with other kids so that you English folk would never find it. :P

 

Congratulations everyone. Back to Tayyab's (which we loved last year)....

It's many years since we ate there with Gavin and Anny (back in the polonium-on-British-Airways days). They booked a table for us all, which was great since we bypassed the line that way. So while you don't absolutely have to, it's nice to be able to. (That was one of the best -- and least expensive, esp. for London! -- meals I've ever had.)

However on two (?) occasions I have booked. In one instance there was hardly a queue and we walked right in. On another occasion, if I am not mistaken, we had a booking, and the queue was extremely long, but we still had quite a wait. Both instances were at least two to three years ago so matters may have improved.

I booked and skipped the line. The funny thing was, they couldn't find my reservation in the book and just took my word for it.

 

So don't book, just show up and tell them you did. :ph43r:

Yes, the reservations work!

 

There was a long line, but I just walked past it and told some guy I had a reservation. He found me in the book (unlike Wilfrid) and seated me right away.

I have to say I found Tayyabs somewhat disappointing. I was expecting Indian (OK, Pakistani) cuisine beyond what I'm used to in New York. But that's not what it is. What it is, is a very good cheap place. An astonishing value (although not for a solo diner). But not great food. Just really good cheap food.

 

(Note, the following are NYC comparisons, cuz that's where I'm from.) Sure, if Tayyabs were in Curry Hill it would blast away the competition. But it's not nearly as good as Tulsi, much less being something way beyond it, as I'd misguidedly hoped.
