Tayyabs: "terrible food and service" Tayyab's Tip by tombugs

Tayyab's, London: 7 reviews and 4 photos

This place is seemingly famous for being famous. Its certainly not famous for it's food or service. It's now so busy you have to queue for a long time to be seated. They want you in and out and no care is given to much else. My pregnant friend asked for a jug of tap water and was told she couldn't have it because we were seated downstairs and tap water was only available upstairs. She is 8 months pregnant! I am pretty certain the law states that tap water can't be refused, especially to a pregnant woman. After A LOT of arguing with the waiters/manager she was given glass and told that only she could have it refilled - by going upstairs to receive it! The food was average at best - I tried their 'signature' dry lamb chops which were overcooked and grisly and not nice at all. The music would burst loudly and at times was more like a disco. Main dishes were served 15 minutes before the rice and breads. I am really disappointed in this place. I've had far better asian food up Brick Lane and FAR better service.
