FoodHUB App Aroma Chinese Takeaway (Cambuslang, Glasgow) : Review


The guys over at FoodHub asked if I would like another nice wee takeaway and to do a review.

If you dont know this is the second time I have worked with Foodhub and you can read my first review HERE

This time I was in Cambuslang rather than the West End of Glasgow, so I got to try one from this area.

Looking Around The App

The App and takeaway

I got a discount code from FoodHub, and now it was time to decide where and what to order….this was a hard decision.

I ended ordering from a Chinese restaurant called Aroma Hut Chinese Takeaway, I have never ordered from here but the menu looked good.

Just like the last time using the app was mega simple, it was really easy to use and navigate.

The food

Chicken Maryland

This was ordered as my parents love this, I tried a little of each item and everything was very nice and very fresh.

My parents said it was one of the best they had tasted, and it was very fresh.

Crispy Shredded Chicken with Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce⠀

This one was for me, this is a big fav of mine so I thought lets see how here does it and compare.

Firstly the egg fried rice was cooked perfect and had a great taste.

The Crispy Shredded chicken was REALLY GOOD!!!! and now in my top 2 for takeaways! the flavour was amazing, and it was so good I have ordered this again since this first order.

This is one of my dads favs, so I got to try a little.

Again the egg fried rice was really good, so now on to the black bean part

Wow this had a really good flavour, and combined with the prawn and rice it was really nice…This is a dish I would order when I felt like a change.

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 app, and the food.

Just like the previous time I used FoodHub the whole process was easy, simple and no learning curve needed. The other part was I liked is that 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!

The food was really good, and now is one of two of my top local takeaways….well when I come to Cambuslang.

Dumpling Monkey (West End, Glasgow) : Review

I have walked past this place a few times and thought the food looked very nice, so today I took a visit.

On entering we were instantly greeted and asked if it was for take away or sit in, and then shown to a table.


The Food…

Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs £4.80


On arrival this looked very nice, I could see they cut up the ribs rather than bring then whole (maybe to speed up the cooking time).

These were very nice, and had a nice flavour.

If you do order these just be careful as there are bones, just because they are smaller pieces doesn’t mean they are boneless bits.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Hong Kong Style £6.50


This is one of my favourite dishes so I had to try it here and see how it was.

On arrival it looked nice, but this is where it stopped.

The sauce was very runny and had a slight vinegar taste to it, normally when its been like this its the cheaper way to make it so maybe thats whats happened tonight…or vinegar is used to thin down sauce to make it go further….

This place is a take away trying to be a sit in cafe/restaurant at the same time.

You order at the desk, get the cutlery yourself and all the food just comes at once even though its split in to starters and mains. Since it all came at once and I was at a table for two, the table was too busy and made it difficult to actually enjoy and eat.

By the time I finished my starter my Sweet and Sour chicken was a little cold, plus it wasn’t that good (i’ve had much better).

Personally I don’t know if I would go back, the starter was nice the main not so much….I will need to think on this one.
