First time I have used either Hungryhouse or Essence of Asia. Delighted with the ease of ordering, speed of delivery and high quality of food. Highly recommended.

Took over two hours to reach us and was cold when it got there. I don't think that using Hungry House works for this type of place and we were using a HH discount code - perhaps we just weren't considered a priority customer. Food probably would have been decent if it had been hot.

One of curries was not the one I ordered, it wasn't one we would ever eat, so we had to share one curry. I rang them they apologised and said they were very busy, but would give me a free curry when I ordered again.
Food is good but this order took well over an hour to arrive.

The curries were great, though we did only get one mint sauce when we ordered two!! The kids meal, on the other hand, was not so great. The chips were soggy as were the nuggets, and never got the fruit shoot drink which was listed as part of the meal. We may return for a curry possibly, but would not recommend anyone to order other food from here.

Unfortunately our food was rather bland. My chicken Korma didn't taste very coconutty and the sag paneer wasn't particularly cheesey. Normally very happy with the food. Delivery was on time and belly buster meal deal is a good price though.
