Have your say

Aligarh’s menu stakes its claim to serve up a ‘luxury dining experience’.

Although ordering out from the Indian restaurant means you miss out on its ambience and service, this really is takeaway food with a touch of class.

Large, crisp, ring-shaped onion bhajis - a generous two per person - were a perfect start, while the chicken hyderabadi balanced creaminess with a spicy kick to the sauce, offering plenty of meat.

Balti saag aloo paneer was a dense blend of spinach, cheese and chillies.

Fragrant egg pilau race and a garlic nan provided the finishing touches to a fine takeaway.

Everything was ready for collection within half an hour and packaged up in a fancy box. There’s a discount if orders are picked up, too.
