Cinnamon (Cambuslang, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Delivery

This was my second birthday dinner, as my first one was a Chinese with my grandparents.

I have been to Cinnamon before, and had a lovely meal inside but at the time of typing this post restaurants are still closed so it was a takeaway.

The Food

Vegetable Pakora £3.45

I love a good vegetable pakora, they are super addictive.

For me these tasted really good, and had a subtle kick to them. They had a good crispiness to them and a nice texture.

They were finished very fast, plus the dip with these just really adds to the flavour.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Chicken Pakora £4.95

I don’t tend to order chicken pakora a lot, but tonight I felt like it as its been a while.

For me these were just ok, the coating wasn’t as crispy as I would have liked it, and the chicken wasn’t as tender as I have normally had it.

Flavour wise it was nice.

Peshwari Naan £2.95

Peshwari Naan is a massive fav of mine, as its got the great naan taste with that extra sweetness to it.

I have noticed the inside of a Peshwari can vary, sometimes its a pinkie colour and sometimes no colour. I don’t know why this is, unless its colouring?

Anyway, this was perfect it had a good amount of sweetness to it and the lovely naan taste.

Perfect!

Chicken Ceylonese Korma £7.95
Prepared with creamed coconut milk, mild spices & pureed tomatoes

I love a good Korma, as you have probably guessed its due to the smooth creamy sweet taste.

Tonight I opted to try this one, and see what the Ceylonese way was like.

This had a really nice creamy taste, but it had a kick to it I wasn’t expecting.

For me it was nice, but that kick wasn’t for me as it killed the nice flavours but I am glad I tried it as its good to try new things.

My Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

Overall another really nice meal from Cinnamon, every thing was cooked really well, full of flavours and the delivery time was spot on.

I am glad I tried a different Korma as I said, but next time I will try something new for me and see how that is.

Great Peshwari Naan 🙂

Tandoori Knights via FoodHub (Cambuslang, Glasgow): Review

The Delivery

I fancied something different this week so I opened up the FoodHub app and placed an order from Tandoori Knights, and this is what I ordered.

Regular Veg Pakora £3.50

I like all pakora’s but more recently veg pakora has been the one I have always opted for.

I have found veg pakora can be hit or miss depending on where you are, or who you order from and I can’t remember if I have ever tried it for here.

These came with a dip, but I like to always try them on their own first then with the dip.

Ohh these were very nice, they were perfectly cooked, had a nice crunch and tasted very yummy.

With the dip that added extra flavour and again very very nice.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Chicken Tikka Pasanda £9.50

Something different for me, as I tend to stick to the same curries but nope not tonight.

Oh wow this was really nice, the rice was really nice and well cooked and the curry has a lovely creamy coconut flavour to it.

This was similar to a korma but has a slight and I mean slight kick to the curry.

I am glad I tried something different, and would order this again.

My Rating

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Donner Hoggie £5.00

I wanted to order this again, as I have had this before as I love Donner meat so much.

This was really nice, though the chips could have been cooked just for a few more seconds to add that extra crunch to them.

The sauce and the meat was perfect and the whole bite was mmmm

My Rating

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

Tonights takeaway was very nice, and packed with flavour and I could easily have more of the vegetable pakora.

As I said I ordered via the app FoodHub so please do check out my previous reviews and check it out.

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.

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…..

Chicken Pakora £3.95

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!

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.

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!
