Famous for its queues and its legendary lamb chops, Tayyabs brings together hungry locals, bellowing suits and slavering foodies. Extended upwards and outwards over the years, this massive Punjabi-Pakistani canteen is a fast and furious blur of waiters and keyed-up diners but fans still insist it’s ‘worth the wait for the table’. The above-mentioned chops are a must-have (likewise the kebabs, tikkas and mixed grills), while the unappetisingly named but tender ‘dry meat’ has as many advocates again. Veggie dishes are also well worth a punt (try the excellent pumpkin curry or dhal), and accompanying breads are impeccable. The service, alas, doesn’t seem to be getting any better; ‘nagging’ and ‘rushed’ on occasion, it remains Tayyabs’ Achilles heel. Bargain prices are its saving grace, and the corkage-free BYO policy cuts costs even further.
