    Have had this a couple of times now, and each time been remarkably impressed. We tried the shahi lamb shank and murg palak and these were to die for.

    Really good quality fresh and flavourful dishes. Highly recommend.

    This is a strange one: The food at Dinner box is very good, especially the peshwari naan. I thought I had found my new favourite curry house in my endless quest. But (there's always a but) the first time I had takeaway from here, there were two bits of sharp plastic in my curry. I thought this must be a one off and forgot about it. Some time later we tried them again with no problems. The third time, more plastic, but this time pieces of film like stuff, which I ended up chewing on for a while cos I thought it was onion.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, make me chew on plastic.

    So good food, but very questionable kitchen practices. I would suggest Tiffin Tin instead.

    Dinnerbox is a different sort of curryhouse - more exotic than Exotic of India (which I would also recommend), less...English if that makes sense. We last had the mixed grill and veggie curry. Both were ace. certainly worth a look at for an upmarket sort of curry. Delivered.

    This is without doubt the best takeaway curry available in the surrounding area. I have ordered from there countless times and it is always delicious!! I shall be treating myself to it tonight! :-)

    My favourite Indian take away in North London. The food is always good, their vegetarian selection is lovely (particularly the Tandoori Paneer, fantastic).
    My meat-eating other half says the quality of the meat is excellent. The breads are made by themselves and the sides are very good too.
    The only complaint I've ever had was a slightly plastic taste (on a meal that arrived in a plastic box) maybe it had been prepared, then frozen inside that container and microwaved to reheat?
    Still my number one go-to take away!

    Their fancy takeaway menu caught my eye and the food was very nicely prepared - a cut above the usual Indian to be sure, and with great chunks of meat. However the main drawback was that it all tasted a bit bland, so if you like your curries with a bit of pep I would steer clear. I ordered a spicy dish but it had no real fire to it at all. That aside, a great place.
