“The original Pakistani joint” – this “perfect” East End pitstop of over half a century’s standing is as “cheap and consistent as ever” (and as grotty…). For “legendary” lamb chops, “the best ever dry lamb curry” and “amazing chicken tikka”, it can’t be beat.

The legendary lamb chops are “great – but all the food is delicious” – at this teeming Whitechapel landmark, which notches up its half-century this year. “The atmosphere is an experience – cricket on big screens, and the weirdest mix of Indian and Pakistani families, East End geezers, hipsters and City boys”. “You don’t come for the indifferent service”.

“OMG!! Do not judge a book by its cover!” “The grand-daddy of cheap ’n’ cheerful Pakistani kebab joints” in Whitechapel has been “an East End staple” since it opened in 1972. A “huge, echoey, tiled room, with big screens showing cricket”, it’s “such amazing value” and “so damn consistent, it just keeps getting bigger, busier and better”. Top Tip – “step in at the off-licence next door for your booze”. Top Menu Tips – “the chops are special”, and it serves “the best chicken tikka ever”.

"We had some curries which arrived surprisingly quickly. All perfectly nice. Highlight was the mango lassi - made with Alphonso mangoes so a much better taste and a much less sweet drink than you find elsewhere."
