Everything about Tayyab's - which serves up the city's best Punjabi cuisine - is an assault on the senses, from the dizzying aromas of their dishes to the sheer noise of the place. But those sensations pale in comparison next to their sizzling plates of perfectly spiced grilled lamb chops. You can choose to eat them with a knife and fork, sure, but it's the equivalent of using chopsticks to eat a Snickers. Get your hands dirty and lose yourself in the fiery flavours: something about the exotic spices and numbing heat will warm you from within, no matter how cold, drizzly and miserable it is outside.
Best for: When you want to feel far away from chilly London. Lahore, for instance.
