Tayyabs is best Brick Lane curry not on Brick lane. Start with the lamp chops and then order as much as possible because it's BYO and a bargain. You can book if it's not on the same day. Expect to wait up to 45 minutes.

Looking for awesome Pakistani food when you are in London? Go to Tayyabs! Wow, went here and ate for 2 hours straight. Started with an awesome, giant Mango Lassi and then ordered everything on the menu. It will be busy, we had to snake through the restaurant in a long line to dine. This lamb dish was terrific. Paul and I could eat here everyday. www.tayyabs.co.uk/

Cyril Power ~ The Tube Station, 1932. Linocut ~ Bank Road Tube Station. The London Underground was one of the most dynamic technological advances of the 19th C. When this print was made there were at least 6km of track & the Underground was one of the most potent symbols of the new industrial age. Power was fascinated by the Underground & depicted various aspects; from stairs & cascading escalators to the technologically advanced curves of the tunnels & electrical signage announcing arrivals.
