DEPENDS

I much prefer Indian food but the takeaways around here are about £2-3 too high per main and everything else (rice/bread/starters, etc) about £1-2 too high.

The best Chinese takeaway is more reasonably priced, can get much more for your money which is annoying as I’d much prefer a full on stuffing of Indian food without feeling that I’d overpaid.

Best takeaway locations?

Indian:

Spices in nunhead

Chinese:

The mandarín in Guildford near the old Odeon.

Chinese take-aways in this country are almost always shite in my humble experience. Indian if you’ve got the mates around, pizza if you know a decent/cheap place, kebab otherwise.

Chinese are more hit and miss than Indian, but good Chinese places are :ok_hand:

Chinese; silver vase
Indian: aagrah
Pizza; harpos

Do you have a local Chinese chippy?

  • Yes
  • No

Fish and chips:

Masters superfish in Waterloo
OR
Andy’s fish bar in Haslemere

Used to (the wai lok in Lindford)

Chips were amazing, everything else was shite

  • Delivered (Tory)
  • Pop round and pick it up (labour)
  • Order and wait at the restaurant (full communism)

If you’re saying pound for pound as in a bargain it has to be chippy or Jamaican surely

I actually think Indian is more hit and miss than Chinese. Chinese is more or less the same wherever you get it from, don’t lots use the same supplier?

Hate getting a curry and it’s just generic sauce with little variation between them e.g. the jalfrezi is just generic sauce with some green chillis in.

Do you prefer ‘traditional’ takeaway place names (jasmine garden, village tandoori) or ‘modern’ names (hot wok express, spices)

  • Traditional (Brexit)
  • New (E.U)
