Founded in 1972 Tayyab’s is a family owned and run business in Whitechapel serving the finest in Punjabi cuisine. From exquisitely spiced curries to our world renowned mixed grill and sizzling lamb chops, each dish has forged its place in history.
Beginning the story in a small Café, Tayyab’s grew into the space you see today, formed of three premises to create the vibrant atmosphere, and yet intimate experience so closely associated with our beginnings. Watch as our waiters weave their way through both the past and present, hurriedly delivering our mouth-watering and passionately crafted dishes.
Today Tayyab’s is run by our three sons, Saleem, Aleem and Wasim each of whom are passionate about each and every dish that leaves the kitchen. Quality dishes served at the highest level, becoming one of the most celebrated restaurants, not just in Whitechapel but in London.
When it comes to our food our mixed grill is a huge favourite, and this will become not just your first tantalising step into our food, by the second, third, and fourth. Fulfil your missing experience; don’t leave without having tasted our mixed grill.
Come and share in our family story, and experience our tale first hand, our other recommendation; have the lamb chops…
Good quality of food with good value.
Excellent - visit all the time!
Tayyabs is amazing - a real find! We've taken a few colleagues along and they've all loved it and are planning on going back with friends and family. It's our new favourite place for team lunches. Amazing food and great value for money
Probably the worst food and service I've ever experienced. The waiters were arrogant and rude and the lamb chops I ordered were bland, dry and the meat was very chewy. Would definitely not recommend this restaurant to any one.
Although the food was great the whole dining experience was ruined as it felt like we were being rushed, the food appeared way too quickly and didn't give us a chance to take in the atmosphere and enjoy ourselves.
Even though the restaurant was very busy we were seated fairly quickly (we did have a resevation - which is essential on Saturdays). The atmosphere was buzzing and everyone in our party had a fantastic time
The food is nice. But the waiters' attitude is appalling. You have to ask for everything at least TWICE. They are unfriendly and not concerned with delivering good costumer service.
we had a great night, thanks!
Masala fish was excellent. Even on Saturday we obtained a table at the appointed time.
It was so loud I had a splitting headache - I couldn't talk to any of my family it was so loud - is there no way of providing sone quiet cubicles ? The food was also very average and not as good as it used to be
Excellent food - fantastic bustling atmosphere :)
Great food, best curry house around brick lane area. Good atmosphere. Strongly recommend
Amazing lamb chops!
Please let people finish their starters before serving their main courses . Our meal was ruined by our main courses being left on our table while we still was eating our starters . Nice food but service ruined it . Wasn't even that busy
Brilliant as always!
Good food and certainly did not disappoint however was let down by being put on a table near the door. The service was a little hurried and wasn't enough room on our table for the dishes, this did not seem to concern the waiter. However I have to end on a positive the starters were awesome the nan was so fresh and the chicken tasted succulent.. I hope I get a call so I can get a better seat next time and write another review with no negatives.. Try Tayabs and marvel in its authentic cooking which deserves its reputation that precedes it your taste buds will not be disappointed..
Always great food and swift service, only thing that would make it better is slightly more legroom!
Had to wait more than 30 min for the table in a crowded area despite having booked. Service was surly, but not down right rude, which had been a previous experience. The food is so good and cheap that I would consider braving it again.
Amazing - please open a restaurant in Brighton - it would be a different class!
I'm sad to say that I was rather dissapointed with my expereince of Tayyabs. The food was ok, but nothing special. The service was the worst. The waiter was not polite or friendly and made our group feel rushed. The starters and main all came out at the same time and some of us were eating our main before our starter. It felt really rushed and as soon as we finished deserts, they slapped the table with our bill and rushed us to leave. I had the masala fish for starter which was dry and the lamb chops for main. Although this was tasty, the meat was not as soft as I was hoping it would be. I dont think I would visit Tayyabs again. Jay Supaya from London
Perfect as usual
Tayyabs for me and my friends is heaven keep it up boys
Waiters ability to remember 8 courses without writing it down was impressive
