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.
