Paratha Box Order (Aikenhead Road, Glasgow) : Review

While sitting at work the optician said to me have I heard of Paratha Box? I had never heard of them so I brought up the menu and took a look.

Everything sounded so good, and they also did Lassi.

After talking about them and looking at the menu we decided lets get something from them for lunch.

The Order

This was what I got.

Chicken Tikka Paratha Roll £6.00
They say it was invented in Glasgow. The chicken tikka paratha was born here at paratha box, the perfect breakfast, lunch and evening meal! Served in a roll.

This was huge and had a good weight to it, this was going to be a good lunch.

I unwrapped it and took a big big bite…

This was completely packed with flavour!!! this was so so good!!! Everything worked really well and the chicken was really nice and tender.

I am so glad I was introduced to Paratha Box as I cant wait to try more from them.

Extremely filling and really good its getting a SOLID 5/5

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Mango Lassi £2.50
330ML of a heavenly taste, Sweet Lassi – freshly made from mango pulp mixed with a blend of yoghurt. Makes a perfect drink for a hot summers day or with any paratha …

Mango Lassi is always a must they are just so good and super addictive.

If you have never had one think of a sweet mango smoothie.

I have found Mango Lassi’s to be hit or miss depending where you go, they are either perfect and nice flavours and sweet or not sweet and just ok.

This one was perfect and sweet enough for me, as I have a very sweet tooth so I enjoyed every sip.

I could have easily had another.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

I was so full after my lunch, but it was worth it.

I loved everything! flavours of both the Lassi and the Paratha was perfect. I cant wait to try more from their menu.

If you have never heard of them, or tried them please do give them a wee order and let me know what you think…but I am sure you will enjoy it 🙂

Chilli Flames (Halal) (Livingston) : Review

INVITE


I got invited to their preview weekend to come and try some of their dishes, and I couldn’t wait as I had a wee peek at the menu and what I saw all sounded and looked really good.⠀

First Impressions

On entering the place has a great look and colour scheme, for me, it felt very warm funky and modern and I was very relaxed the whole time I was there.

I was told they would get a few things ready so I could sample a few dishes, which was great as that meant I get to show you the dishes and tell you my thoughts plus you get to see what they do 🙂

Hummous & Funky Naan Sticks

At first I wondered what these sticks were, but they are like a squashed naan which was 100% perfect to eat the hummous.

The hummous was really nice, and also had a wee sauce on top which added to the flavour.

Very addictive!!!

Ruby Murrays Takeaway (Tollcross, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Ruby Murrys contacted me and offered me a free dinner, so recently I accepted.

This is what I ordered and thought 🙂

The Food

8pc Mixed Pakora

Normally I dont say this about Pakora boxes but this was nicely presented, I like the Ruby Murry paper it was on as normally its just the pakora and nothing else.

It was mixed pakora so that included Mushroom, Chicken and Vegetable and all were 100% really tasty and had a nice flavour….this was very moreish.

Main

Chicken Korma with Rice

I have ordered from Ruby Murry’s before but never went for the Korma, which is strange as Korma is one of my fav currys so tonight I did got it.

I started with the rice which was cooked perfectly, and had a really nice flavour…now to the Korma.

The Korma had a lovely sweet coconut flavour, which is exactly how I like my Korma’s and together with the rice were very very nice.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Ruby Murry’s for my Friday night dinner.

Tonights food was really good, very tasty and I will continue to order from here like I have done in the past a few times.

If your in the area do check them out and let me know what you order 🙂
