Just fancied an Indian takeaway on a Friday night, so we remembered that we used to have them from Curry Paradise. Read on because we want you to include it in your choices too – especially as Covid-19 is spreading and we need to keep supporting our local restaurants. We now can’t remember who delivered this, but I think most of the delivery companies have Curry Paradise in their lists.

Leave a little time to peruse the menu, as it is worth having a detailed look given the appetizing descriptions. So we didn’t order a Mathi – Hyderbadi style cooked with spring onion, fresh fenugreek leaves and crushed spices, but now wished we had. Most of the dishes come with different types of meat or vegetables. Unusually for the three of us we chose two meat (unusual  as we generally veer towards the veggie options) and tarka dahl and an aubergine dish. We had rice, two naans – one garlic and one peshwari – and of course poppadoms. Extras weren’t necessary, but we had some onion bhajis anyway – three in a portion.

We had chicken korma, in recognition of Friday night in front of the TV with the children and a chicken tikka masala, because we didn’t collaborate at all on the order. Both were exactly what was expected. The korma was smooth and sweet and the tikka massala was also smooth but also had a great spice and a little chili.

The aubergine was a dish of small slippery aubergines and, of course, with lots of tomatoes and onion. The dahl was really good not at all mushy or watery. Both dishes went well with the Naans. And the bhajis were as crisp and tasty as required.

We drank our own Brixton IPA – a great combo with the poppadoms. We want to recommend this takeaway and will definitely be returning.  The food was really good and the portions were so large we had another two lunches out of it. So, in effect, it provided seven ample helpings and, at a cost of £57, including delivery fee, offered great value.

Here’s a photograph of some of the leftovers.
