Tayyab's Review

We went down here on a Monday afternoon. Thankfully there were no queues and we were taken straight to be seated. Poppadoms, salad and 3 house chutneys – mango, sweet  chilli and mint were placed within seconds.

We decided to go for the chicken tikka for starters. This was cooked and seasoned really well and came on a bed of delicious roasted onions. When the waiter came to collect any empty dish there were still onions in it and we did not wish to see them go to waste, the waiter gladly held on while we placed the delicious onions on our plates before taking away.

For mains there was chana masala and ghosht with tandoori roti and 1 keema nan. Both curries were delicious! The masala and flavours all went well and the gravy was lovely and thick. Perfect with the roti. The keema naan did not deliver… it was your average keema naan, meat placed in between the bread and then cooked instead of cooking the meat beforehand so that it is tender rather than a thin patty.

We ordered a jugof mango lassi too which Tayyab’s is famous for. It lived up to the hype!! It was cool, refreshing, not too thick, sweet and full of flavour. We shared a jug between two which was far too much for 2 people but, of course, being delicious was finished!

Overall, I would recommend Tayyabs and would visit again if the opportunity arises.
Rating = 8/10.
