I went to Tayyabs, as my office is around the corner. We started up a ‘curry club’ where we would sample a different Indian restaurant once a month.
Tayyabs was up first and it was awful, I couldn't stand it. I heard it was outstanding and the food was amazing… When I arrived we were left waiting in the gangways until we could be seated, people constantly pushing passed us. We all nearly left… Finally when we sat down, we had to wait an age for menu's, which were manky looking.
Excuse me for being ignorant and English but the dishes offered on the menu – I had no clue what they were, as I am used to the usually offerings of Korma, Vindaloo etc.
When I asked a waiter to explain what some of the dishes were I was told ‘comes in tomato sauce’ Oh yum! not. The mixed grill was ok… It was just grilled meats… I tasted a few of the different dishes we all ordered and they all looked the same… Kind of tasted the same too.
I have no idea why people rave about this place, it looked dirty and over crowded, the food is nothing to write home about it, the waiters have no time for you and as others have stated you are most definitely rushed out of your seats.
