Tayyabs is a very popular hidden gem in London. It is extraordinarily busy for a restaurant tucked away behind the East London mosque and there is good reason for that – it is the best Pakistani restaurant in London and the food should be much more expensive.
However, as mentioned it is incredible busy and so you will wait and you will be rushed out. This is very much a place which enjoys cult status and is perhaps best enjoyed for its take out service.
Having said all of this, I am a regular and I enjoy it for its simplicity, buzz and knowledge that I am eating in a true local gem moments away from the distinctly average offerings of Brick Lane. So it's authentic and incredible but:
If you can order take out then do that instead in order to avoid waiting if you want.
If you do not make a booking, good luck and prepare to wait up to 3 hours sometimes.
