Well, got another curry from BBC last night and it was very poor. Would have joined the Curry Club but couldn't last night. But BBC was very quiet indeed. Looked like they had very few orders and only three or four staff in. Have they burnt out already?

I doubt whether CH G2 Limited is immune to the sharp down turn in restaurant covers since 2008-01-01.

blimey, that's only 9 days Macro. P'raps it's people drawing in purse strings after christmas and not a portend of economic doom.

Not wishing to sound like a git, but I think you must mean 01/01/2008 macroban? By my understanding, there are not 2008 days in January and it is not 2001.

/pedantic.

Nope, but I have now. I'll stick to my trad anglo date format I think.

Yeah I had hoped to the other night but will almost certainly come next time.

Quite liked it actually...food was ready on when promised and was nice. Happily order from there again.

Tried BBC in November - 2 hours late, bland, sloppy and expensive.

Back to our old favourite (of 7 years!). One word : MIRASH.

MIRASH - oh yes.

i've had nothing but good experiences with BBC, although it's not overpowering stuff: allows a bit of experimentation with menu choices for anyone who is normal cautious of avoiding mouth burning.

Tried twice. Very overpriced for not particularly high quality. Late both times. The fact they have an 0845 number to sting you for a few more pence when ordering sums it up IMHO.

I'm adding my voice to the "must try harder" crowd. Having loved the curry at Wandsworth restuarant and the South Wimbledon takeaway BBC's I was really pleased when they opened on LL. Two hungry hours after ordering, I was less than impressed with the quality of what was eventually delivered. To be fair to BBC, they rang plenty of times and told me the delivery guy was lost, and eventually sent another fella with a new meal (apparently). They held their hands up and gave it me for free as well, which was a nice touch. On this basis I went for another try a few weeks back, but was really disappointed with the meal, bland is the word and I have binned my pink menu. Any pointers to the best takeaway curry in ED/PR/FH greatly appreciated.

I've always really enjoyed the Gurka's Tiffin in Forest Hill that does delivery - I've found it better than anything I've had on LL.

They've recently been renamed the Royal Tiffin as I think they're under new management and I've only had food from them once since then and I'm not sure that it was *quite* as good, and the price has increased slightly, but it was early days, so will definitely be ordering again.

The sag aloo is particularly good as they use fresh spinach, rather than the usual frozen stuff.

Give Omrith a try. On time, a fantastic menu and lots of different things as well as the usual favourites. Good breads, rice and accompaniments and good price.

I posted about this place a month or so back and my views seemed to be echoed so search on Omrith in here and hope you enjoy!

There's plenty of variety in an around ED for different tastes and budgets. I'd try all of them until you find one that suits you. One mans BBC is another's Curry Cabin.

PS I think Omrith are pretty good too.

I can't believe how many people are prepared to pay the silly prices they charge at BBC. Don't you guys know that there's a recession on??
Ive tried Omrith and found them really good, as did my fellow diner. I imagine the take out is as good.

Spice Republic rules. Nice food, decent price, always on time, loyalty scheme.

Om nom nom.

Agree re Spice Republic, lard but unforch we had a very disappointing one last time. Really hoping it was just a glitch but am not quite ready to place another order in case things have gone downhill which would frankly be unbearable.

Would like to try Omrith - do they have a website?
