Taste of Lahore (Pakistani) – West Ealing
With two branches both located in the west of London, the Taste Of Lahore we’ve decided to review this one in West Ealing (the other being in Harrow). [More have been added since this article was written]
Now, while we’ve trawled the culinary corners of Ealing, we’ll happily admit that we’ve tended to conveniently look the other way when passing this place.
The reason is quite simple: with its dated decor, and typically bogstandard Indo/Pak menu, we’ve been hesitant in wanting to review any restaurant that falls into the uninspiring category of “curry house”.
Having said that, however, this place does do some mean curries that certainly do live up to its name.
Take the above, for instance; this chicken korma is rich, creamy, and spicy (and ask them to make it spicy coz a non-spicy korma might as be a burger without buns).
And yes, that really is all that you’re going to get for your £7.50.
Similarly, this mixed daal chicken is propa kickin’ innit blad… ahem, we mean, it’s rich and luxurious, with the perfect blend of masala and spices.
Unfortunately for them (and so many other curry houses for that matter), this is where this place sadly lets itself, and the rest of Lahore, down.
If you order any rice dish, don’t expect it to be fresh as in made an hour or two ago and properly reheated. And to add salt to the wound, these dishes will either be over spiced and/ or salted, or under. In this case, it was the former. Pretty naff!
They do this well.
The chicken doner has certainly improved over time. We recall their grilled meat being overly salty.
This, however, was subtly spiced and perfectly char grilled.

The place could also do with a lick of paint to make it more... how can we put this, attractive! This was eventually done in 2017.
