Hawkyns@home

Our Michelin starred takeaway lived up to expectations

During the lockdown Atul Kochhar launched his ingenious Hawkyns@home collection and delivery service. This isn’t just an Indian takeaway, it’s a Michelin starred Indian takeaway!

From Wednesday to Sunday evenings enjoy exquisite food in the comfort of your own home. We certainly did, along with a bottle of Atul Kochhar’s own label Prosecco priced at just £15. Delivery is available within a 6 mile radius for £4.00 or opt for collection.

Our food was delivered piping hot, and plentiful too. In fact, there were enough leftovers for us to enjoy the following day.

We had the Set Menu for 2 priced at £60 (available Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday). The homemade chutneys with the poppadums are so full of flavour they really woke our tastebuds up; the coriander chutney is out of this world!

Our appetizers of lamb samosa and aloo tikki really hit the spot and the mains of lamb rogan josh and chicken tikka masala were clearly created by a Michelin starred chef. The side of naan was perfect for eating with the saucey lamb and the aloo gobi and tarka dal are always staples of our takeaways.

We wouldn’t usually have dessert with our takeaway but as it was included in the price we couldn’t resist. The chocolate mousse was velvety smooth, with a richness that was indulgent and very satisfying. The mango yoghurt mousse was creamy, with a fruity flavour that refreshed our palette. Needless to say, despite feeling rather full, the desserts didn’t last long.

A second option of a Weekend Special Atul Kochhar Set Menu for 2 is available on Friday and Saturday and is priced at £80.
