Had heard great ravings about this place, but was disappointed the food is mediocre and produced in mass. I was allowed to go into the kitchen and they turn out food like production lines. Nothing special and average, having said that it seems popular as it was packed. Disappointing to see none of the starters come out on sizzling platters.... More

I used to really enjoy coming here, and was a seasoned regular with friends and family. They used to have great food at good prices. But my last experience will remain the last experience! Went with a group of friends (whom I recommended this restaurant to) and I felt embarrassed by the experience we had. 1) filthy plates and tables... More

Been going to lahore kebabs for years, we love the food and staff and management are lovely people. Great place for family and social gatherings and a healthy cheap night out if you ask me. With the plight of these newly disturbing reviews I would say that coming from east london myself and aware of the way a lot of... More

We have been coming to the Lahore for years purely on the basis if good wholesome food at very reasonable prices. But sadly greed has taken over the place. They charge £1.00 per papadom - by the way if you go yo any Asian shop you can sometimes buy 2 whole packets for £1.00 The tarka dal is very expensive... More

I was meeting with a friend for dinner in London one evening and decided on Lahore’s despite the long trek from Central, following glowing recommendations from a couple of work colleagues. The restaurant once inside is not the most glamorous, but apparently this is not the reason why you visit. For starters we went for poppadoms and a selection of... More

I visited here with friends after being in town for a conference. One of our party had eaten here before an recommended it. You take you own alcohol so we went to the shop next door to buy some wine and beer first. The food is absolutely delicious and plentiful. We especially loved the mixed tikka meat and the lamp...

If you are expecting a traditional "Indian restaurant" you may be disappointed, it is much more of cafe that serves curries, however they are full of taste. Take your own booze as they don't have a license to serve alcohol, there is a shop on the corner opposite. The food was different to that I usually get in standard curry... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
