Decided we deserved a treat and ordered a takeaway tonight. It arrives and I start to dish, we ordered tandoori chicken as one of the mains which comes with a salad hahahahaha (the quality of the salad reflects the meal as it was yuck sad ) have you been really disappointed with a takeaway recently?

That's pretty standard for a curry house salad though! Salads are not a speciality grin

That does look like a curry-house 'salad' OP!

We got Pizza Hut last night as we were too tipsy from the pub to think about cooking. Ordered it at 9. Still not there by 10:30 despite calling the shop three times who said the delivery driver was just leaving. The shop is at the bottom of the road!

It arrived at 11pm, I'd fallen asleep by that point so I had cold pizza for breakfast grin

That's a garnish, not a salad

That's pretty standard with tandoori chicken

That looks exactly like every takeaway salad I've ever seen. They're never more than a limp, warmed garnish.

I would never eat salad from a takeaway place, personally.

It's rubbish, but exactly what I'd expect from an Indian.

Had to go out and get dh and ds a KFC last night as dd and I had eaten out. We decided we wanted a coookie dough desert from Pizza Hut. So ordered it for collection on the way back from KFC.

Get it home and it was burnt to a crisp!! Awful. So disappointed.

That does look like a standard curry house salad though. I don't think they expect you to eat it.

Yeah, that's kind of what I'd expect from a place that probably only keeps salad on the premises for kebabs and similar foods.

I ordered fries with a curry recently and they were so overcooked I could have built a small wall with them.

What salad were you expecting from a curry house?

Of youmewt it you only get a garnish which is what you've got surely

Gileswithachainsaw Sat 28-Jan-17 21:35:56

Standard salad fir an Indian takeaway.

It's not as if you eat them after they get warm in the plastic bags in the box with the food anyway...

What were you expecting op?

Why not? They're inspected for food hygiene standards, same as anywhere else. If they have a good rating their salads and everything else will be fine.

Honestly, who really loves salad in a takeaway, surely the whole point is to pig out.

And whenever I have gone to the trouble of making a salad when people are over, it is rarely touched. They just pig out on the other stuff.

Salads are great for some, but for the majority salads are to be avoided in favour of the big picture. Fills the table and looks good admittedly, but rare that it is wolfed, unlike the rest of the food!

ShatnersBassoon Sat 28-Jan-17 21:39:10

^ Because they're warm and sweaty by the time you open up the packages, and invariably lacklustre anyway.

Send them to Donald Trump?

Looks okay to me for a curry takeaway.

pictish Sat 28-Jan-17 21:56:58

Looks like every Indian takeaway 'salad' I've ever seen...and Tandoori chicken is my old faithful so I've seen a lot.

RubbishMantra Sat 28-Jan-17 21:58:37

At least they didn't tie it in one of those little nappy sack type bags, turning it into a sweaty, soggy mess. They go straight in the bin here.

Dd once ordered a takeaway from Jamie's Italian. She ordered a salad as a main course and it wasn't much bigger than your picture OP!

She took a picture and complained to them on FB. They told her to go to her local Jamies and she and a friend could have as much as they could eat, with wine! She's a poor student so off they went and they ate enough food to last a week😂

WicksEnd Sat 28-Jan-17 22:01:27

Is it the first time you've ordered an Indian take a way OP 😂

Serialweightwatcher Sat 28-Jan-17 22:01:52

Even when I've had tandoori chicken in a restaurant you wouldn't get much more salad than that - it's not really a proper part of the dish just a bit of garnish

Chunder Sat 28-Jan-17 22:03:32

Oh, that is poor, even worse than the one from my local takeaway. I used to live near the best Indian takeaway/restaurant, the salad was always a huge bag with loads of cucumber, radish, onion etc. When we go back to eat at that restaurant see family I always suggest a takeaway from that place. blush
