The big takeaway review

When offered a free takeaway, one never says no. Especially during the exam period, when going to the supermarket feels like too decisive a form of procrastination. (Procrastination can never be overtly productive; it must appear useless and unfulfilling). So I accepted the offer of reviewing a few meals for hungryhouse – an internet portal for ordering takeaways – and celebrated the prospect of countless MSG-stuffed foil packages arriving at my door.  The menus are online; just choose dishes to place in your basket, decide upon a method of payment and await your food. All very easy, no human interaction and no frustrated repetitions shrieked down the phone.

Sayuri at The Friendship Inn

Amongst other things, we ordered prawn toasts, crispy shredded beef, special fried rice and a vegetarian version of duck with hoisin pancakes. It was enjoyable, but nothing was all that special.

Indian Spice

A respectable peshwari naan, chicken korma and rice were delivered but only after an hour and half had passed – not good enough for hungry people!

This Indian was amazing! I had a delicious and massive keema madras, others had a lamb bhuna, pasanda and a chicken rogan josh that went down equally as well. I would order again, but be wary of the profound quantities of oil that exude from every dish.

Bite All

From this American takeaway we ordered a 14” meat pizza for £10.50, which I would recommend as a much cheaper alternative to Domino’s. It was the thickness of a doorstep and covered in meat; can’t go far wrong there.

Ming Chef

This oddly-titled Chinese is definite winner of the takeaways. This baby got me through a very late night of panicked coursework and fed us the next day too. Not only was all the food delicious, but we got free spring rolls, free fortune cookies and a free dragon calendar! They also do a few Japanese dishes, such as prawn dumplings, which were delicious although peculiar-looking. I’ll be ordering from Ming Chef again.
