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 🙂

Ranjit’s Kitchen (West End, Glasgow): Review

607 Pollokshaws Road
Glasgow G41 2AD

V: 23rd December 2018.    T:  0141 423 8222.    W: www.ranjitskitchen.com


This is an area I have not really explored yet, so I decided to take a look at some restaurant names and find something I would like to try.

Ranjit’s Kitchen was the first to jump out at me, so I had a quick look at the menu the night before to give me a head start on arrival.

Looking Around

On entry Ranjit’s Kitchen, it was very bright, warm and had a nice cosy feel.

We were welcomed and shown to a table, inside doesn’t have many seats and you can’t book in advance so you may need to wait for a table.

The Food…

Looking around everyone was enjoying the food, and it smelled very good….so I couldn’t wait for my dinner to arrive.

Starter

Daal of the Day £3.95
Panjabi lentils or Panjabi curry in a large bowl, served with 2 rotis

img_5897

I am not a soup person of any kind really, but it was cold today and I thought why not let’s try it and see what it’s like.

So as you can see from the photo above, that was today’s Daal.

For me this was just ok, I knew to start/ordering this I might not like it but I thought I would give it a try….as I said it was ok for me.

Would I order this again? not really but that’s a personal preference.

Main Course

Ranjit’s special pakora £3.95
Made with a mix of cauliflower, spinach, onions, potatoes and spices in gramflour batter served with chutney

img_5898

This is one of my favourites anytime I get an Indian, so I was looking forward to this dish.

This was really nice and mega fresh!

The flavours were really nice and light, and the batter was perfect so thin but had a nice crisp to it.

Tonight I could have easily had another batch of this!!

Mango Lassi £1.95
a cooling yoghurt based drink

This is my MUST HAVE Indian drink, every time I go to an Indian restaurant I always have to order this.

For me this was just so so, it wasn’t sweet like I have had it in many other places but it was nice.

Sweets

Now, this is the part I always like as I have a sweet tooth, so now it was time to try some Indian sweets.

Ladoo £2
a handmade ball-shaped traditional sweet made with gramflour and sugary syrup.

I have never had these so I didn’t know what to expect…

These were very nice!! I liked the texture, the flavour and everything about them!

Can’t wait to have these again!

This was recommended by a member of staff tonight, so I ordered them to see if it was a good recommendation or not.

Again mmmm so good I don’t know what I liked better Ladoo or this.

Snowflake Gulab Jamun £2.50
dough balls fried and soaked in sweet syrup and then rolled in delicate coconut flakes.

img_5900

I am a big fan of Gulub Jamen and don’t have it as much as I would like so I had to order it tonight along with the rest of the sweets.

So this was an interesting take on Gulub Jamen with the coconut flakes….presentation looked nice and the taste was ok.

Personally, I prefer the original way where they are warm and soaked in syrup….but that’s just me and my sweet tooth talking.

Overall

Tonight I had a really nice time, I enjoyed the food and more so the sweets!!!

I can’t wait to go back to try more dishes and have the sweets again.

See you soon guys.
