Bo’ness Spice Restaurant (Bo’ness, Scotland) 2021 : Review

V: 4th July 2021

About Bo’ness Spice

We are dedicated to serving the local community, that is why our menu features popular classics. The new dishes are sure to tantalise the taste buds with focus on the authentic flavours which vary with the different regions of India’s vast territory.

The Visit

The guys at Bo’ness Spice kindly invited me to come and check them out, and try some of their food. So we arranged a day and time, and I set my satnav and off I went.

At the time of visiting they have only been opened for 5 weeks, but the whole time I was in eating the phone was going like crazy, and the delivery and collections were booming…so I couldn’t wait to try the food if this is how popular it was already.

Starter

SABZI PAKORA (normally £3.95)
(5 pieces) Deep fried balls of gram flour, onions, mixed vegetables &
a variety of spices, served with special sauce.

I wanted to try a big dish as my main, so I thought I would play safe and go for nice pakora to start with.

Ohhh the presentation was very nice, and it smelled really good…I couldn’t wait to dig in.

I took a bite of one without the sauce, to see how it was and wow!!!! these are really good.

These are nice and light, perfect texture and packed with flavour.

So so so good!!!!

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

SHAHI CHASNI (normally £8.75) + Pilau Rice (normally £2.95)
Chicken kebabs cooked in a delicate sweet & sour sauce with a touch
of fresh herbs & spices.

I broke my little rule, where I always try a restaurants Korma and use to see how good they do their dishes….I decided tonight to select something at random.

I opted for this dish with pilau rice.

On arrival this looked very bright, but had a really great smell and I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

The chicken was nice and tender and the sauce was soo nice, every bite packed a great amount of flavour and I loved it.

The dish was very filling, but I enjoyed it and would order it again on my next visit.

PESHWARI NAAN (normally £3.15)

I love a good Peshwari naan, as I have a sweet tooth so its perfect for me the nice naan flavour with a sweetness going through it.

They looked really good, and now was the taste test.

I was happy to see that they didn’t have a redish colouring inside, as for me that looks artificial….still not sure why or what it is but anyway back to this one…

This was very nice, and my friend also agreed…maybe if I was being fussy and it could be down to my sweet tooth…maybe a little more coconut flavour was needed but as I said that’s a personal thing and my friend thought they were perfect for him.

My Rating :

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to Bo’ness Spice for the invite and the food tonight.

I can honestly say that everything tonight, from service to the food was perfect. The food was packed with flavour and cooked perfectly.

Again I was phappy to see how busy they were tonight, as the phone and collections/deliveries was crazy which is great for such a new restaurant.

I highly recommend you check here out, and it will be going on my Top Spots page.

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 🙂

Kebabish Grill Indian Restaurant (Glasgow) : Review

V: 11th March 2020


** This review was typed up before lock down! Please check with the restaurant if it is open or doing home delivery, and if they are check them out! **

I have been to Kebabish a few times, and also at the re-launch event and I promised them I would come back again to try some other dishes…..and tonight I kept my promise.

The Food

I normally order the same dishes when I go to an Indian restaurant, so I wanted to select something different and see if I liked it or not.

Starter

(NEW) Chicken Dynamite Bites £5.95

What better way to try a different dish than trying a new dish from the menu.

These were very nice, and had a small kick to them and very tender….the portion size was VERY big for a starter I was a little worried I may not have enough room for my main after this dish.

  • Presentation : 3
  • Flavour : 4
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 4

Main Course :

(NEW) Butter Chicken £10.95

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

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

Visit Overall :

Well if you know me by reading my blogs you were probably shocked I didn’t have anything else, yup I was even shocked but the main course was very filling but VERY very good.

I highly recommend visiting Kebabish Grill when you can, and try many different dishes I promise you that you wont be disapointed.

Ohh also check out the VLOG for tonights visit
