Located in the “curry district” between Aldgate East and Whitechapel, just behind London’s Mosq, Tayyabs definitely fits in the cheap eats category: the last time I went there, we were a party of 13 and the bill amounted to 121 pounds (not including the service…)!
The portions weren’t as huge as is usually the case in Indian restaurants, and we managed to finish our plates, still we weren’t hungry when we left the place. Oh, and they don’t serve alcohol at Tayyabs, but you can bring your own. It was really tasty, though a little too spicy and overseasoned for me… but I was seated next to an Indian girl who told me it tasted “like home”. I guess this should have you convinced!!
