The crunch bunch: More Pakistani for less


Pitts Cottage, High Street, Westerham, Kent, tel: 01959 562 125

The ex-country retreat of William Pitt is an unlikely setting for an award-winning Pakistani restaurant. Try the mid-week special deal of £12.95 for two courses


219 Field End Road, Eastcote, Middlesex, tel: 020 8868 0900

A friendly, family-run local that does what it does – masala, kebabs, and a great steamed chicken – very well and very reasonably. Dinner for two is £25

The Lahore Kebab House

2 Umberston Street, London E1, tel: 020 7488 2551

Recommended by my Pakistani neighbour: this basic but vast kebab house is great for a no-frills spicy feast for about £15 a head
