Summary

“The best Pakistani food in London!” This “Whitechapel scrum” is “a true no-nonsense star” – its lamb chops and other grills are “so delicious” but the “curries are very good too” and it’s all “so cheap, you almost don’t notice paying!” (especially as you can BYO). “Consistently great for over 20 years”, old timers “remember when it was just a hole in the wall – nowadays it’s a multi-level factory of sorts!” (Fewer reports on the “huge” Streatham outpost, but they say it too is “brilliant” and “a nicer place to eat”).

Summary

“A place of pilgrimage” for decades, this “noisy and frantic” Pakistani “bedlam” in Whitechapel is renowned for its “incredible food at incredible prices” (in particular its “stupendous lamb chops”); it provoked a couple of ‘off’ reports this year though – hopefully just a blip. It also has a well-rated, but much less well-known Streatham sibling. BYO.

Summary

“Still the gold standard, despite its expansion”, this “noisy” and “vibrant” Pakistani canteen in Whitechapel (with spin-offs) has a massive fan club for its “divine” lamb chops, and “great curries” too – who cares if the “Formica-tabled” ambience is “not the nicest”?; BYO.

Summary

“The best kebabs west of Lahore!”; with its “fantastic flavours at great prices”, this “plain” Pakistani canteen in Whitechapel is nothing short of a “phenomenon” – even those who find the setting “depressing” concede the food is “spectacular”; SW16 is good too; BYO.

"despite some inevitable price increases this long established Punjabi continues to provide top quality food at still bargain prices.Lamb chops ,Tikka and Korai dishes suberb still served with free salads and BYO facility ensures a final bill that is remarkable value for money eg a full meal for 6 adults at about £15 a head."
