If you’re in Whitechapel craving lamb chops, and the queue at Tayyabs is longer than your group chat after an evening of questionable decisions, then Lahore is where you want to go. This big Pakistani grill serves up kebabs and curries in a straightforward, no frills, canteen-like setting. It’s an institution for excellent value group meals, but that isn’t to say you can’t enjoy their onion bhajis and a portion of softly spiced chicken karahi alone.
