SquareMeal Review of Lahore Kebab House

Bronze Award

“Gigantic restaurant, huge grills, fantastic curries, great value, always busy” – one reader’s snapshot of this legendary East End kebab house. Don’t expect much in the way of decor (Spartan is the word that comes to mind), but you can always amuse yourself by watching IPL cricket matches and Bollywood movies on the giant screens or marvelling at the chefs beavering away in the open-to-view kitchen. “Amazing” Punjabi-style tandooris are the headline act (don’t miss the emphatically spiced lamb chops), but the long menu also features everything from samosas and masala fish to velvety dhals and ghee-rich curries served in plain karahi bowls (methi ghost, chicken korma, lamb jalfrezi etc). Also check out the daily specials: murgh channa, meat pilau, chicken haleem with cracked wheat. Low prices, fast service and a BYOB policy seal the deal. Expect queues out the door (especially at weekends), but it’s worth the wait.

Incredible Indian food served simply and cooked beautifully. Cafe style and no extraneous flipperies. Bring-a-bottle helps keep the prices very reasonable. It has changed dramatically since I first started going in early 1990's but it is still an amazing meal. First class.
