They have no idea of food and taste. They have no culinary history and when they pass remarks on the quality of food, it seems to be ridiculous. The authentic Pakistani food is hard working job and should be paid accordingly.

Being a Pakistani by origin but living in London for many years, I have to say that Tayyabs, Needo, Lahore Kebab House and the like are all second rate Pakistani restaurants, that have customized their food to better suit the British palate.

Like ALE says the only authentic Pakistani food is at Khyber Pass. Shame it is so far out and has poor transport links, but if only for an occasion, you should make the trek. Khyber Pass’s karahi is outstanding and the only karahi that reminds me of home.

Why not, the word curry itself is fake, there is nothing like curry in Pakistani food. Ask any of the restaurants for a Karahi Gosht and that will tell the story. Putting a lot of stuff with some spices, tomatoes and onions in the pan and coooking it hot red doesn’t make it Pakistani food – the delicacy of Pakistani food is completely missing in UK restaurants. Tayyabs and Needos are good on Tikka, Kebabs etc.

The best Pakistani food in UK can be found at Khyber Pass on Romford Road – a small restaurant but real Pashtun cuisine. Similarly, Lahori Nihari off Green Street serves the best Nihari, Chikkar Cholay, Halwa Puri and Mix Grill in the UK – this is again a small establishment.

We weren’t able to try the authentic pakistani street food at elephant, http://www.elephantcafe.co.uk/ cos it was already completely full! But I will be heading back there in the coming weeks, because it looked absolutely amazing.
