Visited the restaurant late yesterday night, overall great experience, food was nice, enjoyed the bar b q chicken tikka and biryani, lamb chops could be done better. Will visit again.

We've heard people raving about this place, but honestly I don't know what the fuss is all about. We had to beg waiters for attention, our food came suspiciously quickly after we ordered and it was coldish, my naan was burnt. Nothing special at all.

Have been visiting this place for years as their food is just amazing. Very good value for money. Does get very busy at times and may need to wait for a table. But definitely worth waiting

Booked in advance as this place is ridiculously busy. Arrived and were asked to wait until our full party was there to be seated. Tables are packed in and the restaurant is extremely noisey. We had to flag someone down to order. Starters and mains...More

Not a fan of Tayabbs. I think their food and prices are inflated due the hype around the restaurant. Due the big queues you tend to feel harassed to eat and vacate the table. I live in tooting and am surrounded by decent curry houses...More

Nice place to try Indian food, if it is your first time. Helpful and friendly staff. Good quality for its price. Normal waiting time, even on busy hours. And yes, it can be noisy then, but at the same time it is lively and family...More

Love Tayyabs so much! Their food always was super tasty and cheap, which were the main reasons I'd go. Recently their prices have gone up, which is why I've marked them 4/5. Still, Tayyabs is a great restaurant that I highly recommend.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
