FoodHub App & Order : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Foodhub.co.uk sent me £20 to have a wee treat and check out their app.

I have posted my journey from opening the app to the food arriving on my Instagram, if you missed follow me for any future stories etc I might do.

About Them

What I learned was that when you place an order on the other food delivery apps, they actually take a % of commission. This means the restaurant looses out on its profit, which I never knew this till I looked into FoodHub.

Foodhub is an online food website and app launched in 2017. There are more than 12,000 takeaways currently featured online at foodhub.co.uk and through the apps available for iOS and Android.

Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers, as Foodhub is on average 15% cheaper than the rest!

This is a really good way to work!

The App

I have an iPhone so I downloaded the app via the appstore, but you can get the app from the Android store to or just visit their website.

As you can see from the above images, its layout and looks is similar to the other delivery apps so its mega easy to navigate and find what your looking for since you have probably been used to the other apps.

The Restaurant Choice

Just like the other apps you may have used, this is exactly the same it depends on your area and the times they open for delivery. It also depends if your local restaurants have joined the FoodHub experience.

FoodHub currently have more than 12,000 takeaways on its app so I am sure you will find something to tickle your tastebuds.

For me I wanted to try a restaurant thats been on my hit list for a while, and I choose Steak & Cherry.

As you can see the layout is very similar to the other apps, and I just hit “ADD” whenever I spotted something that tickled my tastebuds.

As you can see from the above screen, I paid and this is what I was shown. The top right corner was a 30min countdown, I took that as 30mins till its cooked but I was very wrong. 30mins later my door went and the food was handed to me, WOW very fast and great service.

The Food :

I ordered from a local Glasgow based restaurant Steak and Cherry, which is a restaurant that was on my ever growing “to visit” list.

I ordered one chicken burger and one beef burger.

The service, and food was really good and we enjoyed it very much.

We got a side of Sweet Potato Fries, and Curly Fries….but something I failed to spot was the burgers actually came with normal fries so we had LOADS of fries 🙂

I will be doing a full review of Steak and Cherry soon, so keep a look out for that.

Service 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 service from FoodHub, and the food from the restaurant.

From downloading the app to placing the order, it was a very smooth process. There was zero learning curve, as it had a similar layout to the other food apps so in a few seconds I knew what to do.

As I said at the start of this post, Foodhub doesn’t take commission, which means it’s a better deal for the takeaway and for us the consumers which I think is a great platform…as its a win win situation.

I have zero hesitation to recommending this app, its easy to use and a win win situation for restaurants and you.

Please check them out either via the website or your app store.

Charcoals Indian Restaurant – Take Away (Glasgow) : Review

Take Away: 28th May 2020


I have tried during lockdown to do more cooking at home rather than take away, but more recently I have had that urge for a few restaurants food that I have visited.

Charcoals

As you may know I have been to Charcoals many times, and during my college and University years it was probably every weekend with my best friend Chris.

Since I started blogging I had to visit different restaurants, so you the reader and my tastebuds get a little variety.

A while ago a few friends visited Charcoals and thought it was at that point just so so, then a few other friends said the same……..so I visited to see what they were talking about as they loved here as much as me.

At that point the food was still good, but was missing the old Charcoals flavour I knew……BUT that has all changed due to this takeaway.

Starter

Aloo Chana Poori £4.95

Aloo Chana Poori

This was actually my fiancee’s starter but due to the amount we ordered we decided to share everything, so we could try everything.

This was very nice, there was a nice subtle kick from the spices and the flavours were booming.

This was a good choice, and a good dish to start with.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Vegetable Pakora £3.25

Vegetable Pakora

I am getting addicted to vegetable pakora, and the dips so I had to get some tonight.

The batter was crispy and the flavours were spot on, and with the little dip you get with it mmmmm so so so so good.

Just typing this review and I can taste this again…..

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Chicken Pakora £3.95

Chicken Pakora

This smelled good and we were very happy with our presentation….now time to taste.

mmmm this is what I am talking about, the batter just crispy, the chicken tender and the flavour mmmm every bite was so good.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Popadoms £0.75

Popadoms

We couldnt order an Indian take away without getting these.

mmm perfect! crispy and a nice flavour.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Main Course :

Yup we were still hungry for more, and if the mains were as good as our starters we were in for a really good treat.

Peshwari Nan £3.50

Peshwari Nan

For those that dont know me I have a sweet tooth, and the Peshwari Nan is my fan nan. I have had many of these from different restaurants and its always either a hit or mis….. and this one today was a perfect hit!

The nan was nice and soft, and the flavour was not overpowering or too much in the background it was perfect!

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Butter Chicken £9.95 (excluding rice)

butter chicken

I used to be a Korma guy, don’t get me wrong I still am but more recently Butter chicken has been getting ordered more and more. (I have even tried making it a home)

The chicken was mega tender, the sauce had a really nice flavour and a very very subtle kick which made a really good mouthful.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Chicken Biryani £11.95

My fiancee ordered this for her main, but as I said at the start we were trying everything.

I never order these types of dishes, as I like my Kormas etc but I was really pleasantly surprised at how nice this was.

The sauce had a kick, and worked well with the rice and the chicken.

I am glad I tried it and enjoyed it, but I will stick with my normal choices.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Overall :

CHARCOALS IS BACK!!!!

This was the old Charcoals I remembered, everything packed with flavour and so so good!

We had so much left over from the dinner, we had the remainder for lunch the next day and again it tasted so good.

The food was fresh, tasty, nice spices, nice kicks etc and I am looking forward to ordering or visiting Charcoals again.

I am happy to say Charcoals is now back on my Top Spot page!

Tuck Shakk – Taste of India Lunch (Glasgow, West End) : Review


As you previously have seen I was gifted my lunch last time from Tuck Shakk, but this time round we ordered and the theme of this one was Indian.

Todays menu

The food

As you can see from the above photos this was a big lunch, but a very very nice and tasty one.

The flavours were all very nice, and not super spicy it had a nice kick to it.

I really liked today lunch, the veggie biryani for me was my fav which I was shocked as if you know me am not Mr Veggie.

Just like the last time, again after eating all this I felt full but not bloated so I was very happy.

Desert :

Again the guys at Tuck Shakk included this for us….

How nice was that 🙂

This was a very nice ending to our meal, and was very nice.

Overall :

Another nice lunch from the guys at Tuck Shakk, and I really enjoyed it from start to finish.
