New Tayyabs vs Lahore Kebab House

Theresa | Jun 26, 200705:02 AM     6

I went to New Tayabs last year for the first time and I went to the Lahore Kebab House for the first time for a takeaway last night. I know that they are both widely raved about on many websites, and that there have been mixed reviews on this one - so I thought I'd add my ha'peth.

I really enjoyed the food at New Tayyabs - especially the dry lamb dish, which I thought was gorgeous - rich and a real depth of flavour. The chicken Karahi was a bit too hot for me, but good nonetheless. I didn't have the chops, but will do so next time. I know many people - who are better qualified than me to comment - have said on this website that it isn't very good, but I really liked it.

As for the Lahore Kebab House - I don't get why people rave about it so much. I was very disappointed, because at best it was average. I liked the tandoori chicken wings - juicy, spicy and freshly cooked, but the lamb karahi was nothing to write home about and the tandoori paneer was just bland. The seekh kebab was also average and the salad had obviously been sitting around since the day before - I have never seem such dried out slices of cucumber - it was actually parchment dry and wrinkled - with cucumber, that takes some doing.

Mirch Masala gets good reviews, but I've not been there, as does Mai'da.
