Summary

“Grilled meats to die for” – not least “top lamb chops, no question” – inspire rave reviews for this East End Pakistani, which fans find “preferable to the over-hyped Tayyab’s” (its much better-known near-neighbour); the ambience? – it’s “dire”.

Summary

“You could walk past it and not look twice”, but this East End Pakistani (somewhat eclipsed by its near neighbour Tayyabs) offers “cheap ’n’ cheerful meals in abundance”“great, simple curries” and magnificent lamb chops.
