‘The hordes aren’t (yet) queuing around the block’ at Whitechapel’s Needoo Grill, but the inference is they soon will be. This ‘dirt cheap’ Pakistani canteen was opened by a former manager of local legend Tayyabs. After three years of trading, the place still can’t escape the comparisons with its ‘more famous cousin around the block’. Luckily, Needoo doesn’t come off too badly. The lamb chops may not be ‘quite up there’ but the poppadoms, kebabs, wide selection of vegetable curries & daily specials such as meat pilau & lamb korma are of a consistently high standard. The venue itself, all hard, shiny surfaces in red & black with ‘Bollywood blaring from the big-screen TV’, isn’t pretty, but it is relatively ‘low key’. Friendly service is a selling point. Needoo Grill is BYO & corkage-free, so bills are low even ‘after eating like royalty for an hour’.
