We all have our own habits and patterns for ordering a takeaway. For some of us it's a welcome substitute to cooking after a hard day. For others it's a treat to look forward to. For our Review of the Week winner Samantha, a takeaway is a must-have accompaniment for good TV shows on a Saturday night. I think we're with Samantha on this one.
We give a big thanks to Samantha for a great review and for reminding us why we love takeaway!
We get a lot of reviews to consider for our Review of the Week competition. Some of them are passionate love notes to the Chef, some are functional and fact based, and some are just downright strange. This week's winner Sakina managed to write us a review that includes a little of everything – organised, fact based and passionate... We love it!
What's the best way to celebrate completing a long, hard piece of work? Champagne? Check. Great food? Check. Good company? Check. The entire Back To The Future trilogy box set? Check.
We thank Review of The Week winner Zoe (and her boyfirend) for showing us how to celebrate in style, and congratulations for finishing your dissertation!
Do you ever have that OMG moment when you tuck into a proper takeaway? With Chinese restaurant New May Flower near by, our Review of the Week winner Nicola has had a few. Despite that, even she wasn't prepared for her most recent order. Read on to hear how the crunchy springs rolls, and divine chicken balls managed to raise the bar even higher.
At hungryhouse, ordering a takeaway is all about choice. Not just the choice of different foods on a menu, but also the choice of different restaurants and cuisines. Unfortunately though, it's not always easy to discover what else is out there.
If only someone had some sort of solution... maybe someone like our Review of The Week winner Adam?
At hungyhouse we are passionate about what we do, because we know that online takeaway can mean many things to many people. One person's monthly treat can be another person's weekly ritual. It's not often though that we hear the world of online takeaway described as 'a lifeline' for those in need.
However, it seems that 'a lifeline' is exactly what it proved to be for our Review of the Week winner Elizabeth.
Elizabeth wins £25 hungryhouse credit to use in case of emergencies (or whenever she next fancies a treat!).
Everyone knows that the most important element of a takeaway is, of course, the food. But what about the service? As many of our reviewers know, the difference between a good takeaway experience and a great one is often the the person delivering it.
These unsung heroes who are dedicated to appeasing your hunger with delicious treats, often go unnoticed... unless of course, they go that extra mile (excuse the pun). But, as our Review of the Week winner John found out, these guys really do make all the difference.
John wins £25 of hungryhouse vouchers to put towards another 'excellent' meal!
Ahh, those guilty pleasures... Whether it's that Spice Girls song that no-one knows you like, or the jumbo size pack of chocolate hobnobs hiding in the back of your cupboard. We all have them!
The dilemma is excruciating. You know you want to polish off the whole pack of hob nobs, but equally, you know that you will pay for it later. Our Review of the Week winner Anna seems to have found the answer though; order Thai from the Blue Moon, and keep all the pleasure whilst removing the guilt!
Now if only she can show me how to get 'When 2 become 1' out of my head....
There are takeaway experiences that are good, then there are takeaway experiences that are so good, you just have to shout about them (or rush to your computer to write a review).
This week's Review of the Week winner Sue had just such an experience when she ordered an Easter Sunday meal from The Cinnamon Tree in Raines park. Sue wins a £25 hungryhouse voucher to enjoy another 'faultless' selection from The Cinnamon Tree.
Sometimes the future can be uncertain, and sometimes it can be a downright mystery. It's no surprise then that the fortune cookies from China Garden were particularly wide of the mark for this weeks Review of the Week winner.
Luckily though the food was spot on, and our reviewer Samantha has had one piece of good luck – a £25 hungryhouse voucher!
