Hungryhouse is a company which gives you the opportunity to do an area search of the nearest takeaway restaurants to your current location (by postcode search), with the added option of giving the list in order of highest to lowest recommendations by former customers.
Instead of using a laptop or computer to process your order, hungryhouse also has its own app which is an easier and much faster way of ordering. Undoubtedly there is an account to make but luckily the process only takes a matter of minutes to complete. The range of takeaway restaurants available in our student area alone is vast, with some restaurants offering home delivery for a fee of £1 whilst others offer free home delivery with orders over a certain value.
A group of us ordered from two separate takeaways on a Saturday night – Shang Hai House (No. 9 The Parade, Northway, Wavertree), a takeaway restaurant specialising in Chinese food; and Café Naz (8 High Street, Wavertree) which specialised in Indian and Bangladeshi food. We decided on these two choices as they were highly rated in the area.
For the variety of food that was offered, the general consensus was that it was good value for money. Food from Shang Hai House ranged from deep fried won tons and the classic sweet and sour pork balls to the particularly delicious crispy butterfly king prawn. The only negative aspect of the food offered at Shang Hai House is the amount of fat that comes on the pork meat in the sweet and sour balls.
The Indian food from Café Naz, however, could not be faulted and there was controversy between which was the best dish ordered – a close call between the onion bhajis or the tandoori chicken (both offered as starters but very generous helpings). The food was also of a reasonable medium spice, even when it came to the scrumptious chicken methi.
Overall, hungryhouse appears to offer takeaway restaurants of good quality coupled with good value for money – ideal for any student!
