When it comes to takeaway in London, the great city is probably more associated with Indian takeaway than anything other type of takeaway. Whatever you desire, from kormas to biryanis and baltis to tasty Persian food, you’ll be able to find it; and it’ll be authentic and bursting with flavour. Londoners have grown bored with the high street fried chicken joint and are opting for curry to mesmerise the tastebuds and expand their culinary knowledge.
Millennium Tandoori in Sydenham was voted Britain’s best takeaway restaurant in 2013 so it’s guaranteed to satisfy any curry craving you might have. There’s plenty of options for a home delivery, from Persian curries, balti and biryani dishes, seafood specialities and plenty for the vegetarians amongst us. Customers love the tasty kolmino lamb, served in a creamy sauce with fruit, nutmeg, nigella and coconut cream, while others keep coming back for the chicken tikka masala due to the delicious marinated charcoal grilled chicken cooked to perfection and served with extra thick sauce.

This Bangladeshi and Indian takeaway is known for its hefty portions which means peckish customers can enjoy the mouth-watering nosh the day after if they don’t manage to eat every tasty morsel in one go. The piping-hot peshwari naan is a hit as is the ‘perfectly-spiced chicken dhansak’. The chef’s specialities include unique dishes such as honey lamb and murgh amli – a hot and sour dish in tamarind sauce.

Do you get extra good karma if you eat here? Well at least you’ll be left feeling satisfied, full and happy. There’s plenty to choose from so whether you’re in the mood for balti and biryani dishes, Tandoori dishes or a delicious vegetarian option you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s often the misconception that Indian food is extra spicy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Kormas and passandas are perfect if you want all the great taste, but less of the heat!

If you’re in North West London check out Masala Zone which claims to be the ‘real taste of India’. Their incredible menu is enough to get the stomach rumbling. If you like to work for your food then a cool street starter is right up your…street. These starters require ‘assembling’ so order gol guppa which are lentil and tamarind wholewheat biscuits that you fill yourself with dressing. There are also warm street starters which require no assembling so you can tuck right in!

Another great Indian restaurant in North West London! With so many delicious-sounding dishes the decision could be hard to make, but luckily many of the starters are just mini versions of the main meals we know and love such as chicken tikka, king prawn butterfly and Tandoori chicken. This way you get to enjoy a bit of everything!
