After a few nights away from home, what’s better than getting the bags through the front door, ordering your favourite dish online and promising yourself that there will be no more late nights (well, at least until next weekend)?
Upon his return from the German capital, this week’s Review of the Week winner, Ben, recommends a great way to get over those post-party blues.
Sounds like good advice to us! -
“Having just returned from a friend’s stag do in Berlin last night, cooking myself an evening meal was far from being an option. My regular craving for a spicy curry had grown as fast as my hangover and on logging into hungryhouse I was thrilled to see Mowgli on the list of available takeaways.
I have ordered from Mowgli several times and have never been disappointed. This time was no exception. The food and service were, as usual, second to none.
After receiving confirmation of the order it was on my table within half an hour (with a free extra poppadom!). One of the gripes I often have with takeaways in Lincoln is the amount of time you can wait for them to deliver your food (why does it always seem like the hungrier you are the longer it takes them?!), which also generally means colder food. Mowgli have always been exceptionally quick and the food satisfyingly hot.
Not feeling very adventurous I’d opted for my usual chicken Madras, which was as close to perfection as curry gets. The quality of the meat was fantastic, something which I always find is a bit hit and miss with Indian restaurants, and the sauce was just the right consistency and level of spice for a Madras (trust me, I’ve had a few!).
There were no complaints to be had with the rest of the meal, either. The Pilau rice was as you would expect (how much can you really say about rice?), as were the 3 poppadoms. The onion salad was delicious, and the cucumber Raita tasted just as it should, with more than just the afterthought of cucumber you get from some curry houses. The bottle of Oasis also hit the spot (sorry Mowgli, can’t give you the credit for this!).
Mowgli’s prices are pretty standard for an Indian takeaway, my order coming to £11.35 in total. I would say Mowgli are definitely good value for money. Another thing I’ve also found is that the staff have always been very friendly and seem like genuinely nice people.
I am usually quite a fussy eater and probably a bit too quick to criticise if anything’s not up to scratch with my food, but in my opinion Mowgli really is faultless. Overall I would give them ten out of ten, and couldn’t recommend them highly enough to anybody considering what to eat. Enjoy!”
