Hands down, best Indian takeaway ever!
Most Indian takeaway food can be quite oily and greasy but not from this place. The food could honestly rival most restaurants let alone takeaways! It's rich and full of flavour without being over powering. Crucially, (for me anyway) your dish isn't drowned in Corriander. The ingredients used are all of the highest quality and certainly help to set this takeaway restaurant apart from others.
Delivery times are very quick and the price is more than reasonable.
I recommend the Paneer Masala. Hot tip, ask for extra chilli but be warned!!
There's a small blessing in having one's cooker condemned, but only a small one. The blessing is that you're officially allowed to order in take away without any guilt, since you've no other option. The bad side is that I eat plenty of take away as it is. (I'm a piglet, what can I say?)
In any case. I scoured Yelp for another offering of Indian delights, and sadly the main few contenders that I've not tried are pure restaurants it seems, so I decided to revisit a past favourite. As of last night, Moortown Tandoori had a 20% off deal on ordering over a certain amount, which meant I could order two mains (I know, don't judge me) and effectively get one for half price - win!
I went for my usual; butter chicken, chips and mushroom pilau, supplementing that feast with an order of makhani chicken too. The arrival time was great, just as they said, and the delivery chap was plenty friendly. As I set up a dish, and began to divvy out some portions, I noticed that they'd obviously labelled the dishes incorrectly - the names of the two mains were switched up. It's not a huge problem, little did they know I was to eat both, but it's a slight concern should someone have an allergy to an ingredient. In any case, accidents happen, so I'm not too worried.
I tried the butter chicken first, and it just wasn't quite up to the Naeems standard sadly. There weren't many pieces of chicken in, and the sauce was quite watery - you could see it running from the dish on the plate. However, the chicken itself was spiced beautifully and I loved the addition of sultanas.
The makhani was perfect -really creamy and thick, you could taste the cheese without it overpowering the dish, and it was full of flavour. Also, it was packed with meat. The chips and rice, as standard, were also excellent so no complaints there. Basically, I'm glad I got one at less cost, as I'd have been disappointed to pay full whack when it wasn't up to their usual standard. However, on the other end of the scale, one dish was utterly lovely and I did get all that food for around £12 or so, which is a major bargain! Essentially, as ratings go, it's more 3.5 stars just for the name mix up and the watery butter chicken, but this won't stop me from ordering a makhani again with them sometime soon. And hopefully when I do, I can update back to their former glory!
Roundhay really is spoilt with many fantastic curry houses, Moortown Tandoor is no exception. Delivery times have always been quick for me and I have never been disappointed with the food. The meat is really well cooked and succulent, the sauce full of flavour and spice and the garlic naan would scare away a vampire. I am a bit partial to a chicken tikka masala and the one from here was lovely, fresh and creamy.
