Tayyabs curry house has reopened after immigration raid


East End Punjabi curry house Tayyabs officially reopened at lunchtime yesterday (Thursday August 31) after a temporary closure by the authorities. News of its shutting prompted something of a Twitter meltdown.

Tayyabs had been out of action since Tuesday, following a raid by the Home Office’s Immigration Enforcement agency. Of nine staff members alleged to be working illegally, it has been reported that five are being deported.

Service at the restaurant – which opened in 1972 – has now resumed. One manager commented: ‘We were given a closure notice, which meant a 48-hour closure. That’s now expired.’
