Summary

“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”.

Summary

“Kebabs and chops to die for” mean this big and famously grungy East End canteen is “still a standard bearer” for down-to-earth “full-flavoured, spicy, meaty Pakistani scoff that’s always satisfying” and “at the same ultra-reasonable price-level it’s maintained for the last 20 years”. A Streatham offshoot never achieved traction, and has now closed.

"The food was pretty basic but the prices were not rock bottom. Service was quick but otherwise dire. No napkins provided and the waiters barely speak. All hard surfaces so you have to shout to be heard. Otherwise the less said about the ambience the better. "

"A regular haunt for over 20 years and still a benchmark for punjabi cuisine in a crowded east end Much bigger now than the original cafe but essentially the same offerings.Lamb chops kebebs ant tikkas always a delight and the quality of the meat in the lamb and chicken curry dishes alway good.Great value especially with BYO drinks."
