Summary

“Embrace the chaos and suck down those chops!” – this “noisy and rambunctious neighbourhood joint with 500 seats” has become “an East End institution” to rival the older Lahore. “The queues are tough” but “it’s worth the wait and the hassle for fabulous Pakistani food at ridiculously cheap prices”. “For Cobra, shop up the street at the Tesco Metro, as they are BYO”.

Summary

“Brilliant as ever, despite the chaos” – this 500-seat, “noisy and rambunctious” Whitechapel “scrum” (“full of smoke and smells”) is “the king of the East End” for fans of its “incredibly good value” meat platters and curries, and “is worth the trip just for the lamb chops alone”. Even if you’ve booked however, getting a table can be an “ordeal”. “It’s BYO, shop for beer up the street at the Tesco Metro.”

Summary

“If you can deal with the chaos and the mayhem” (and the “enormous queue”), this “cavernous” East End Pakistani is “worth it” for its “to-die-for” tandoori lamb chops, kebabs and curries – “they’re a world apart from the sorry food culture of nearby Brick Lane”.

Summary

“How do they keep it so good, while serving a gazillion people?!” – this “frantic” but “phenomenal” East End Pakistani enjoys “classic” status thanks to its “always fabulous and exceptional value” nosh (not least lamb chops that are “beyond superb”); “massive queues, even if you’ve booked!”
