Takeaway Test: Jaflong, Crookes

Have your say

Change can be a good thing - but it’s reassuring when some things stay the same.

This is the case with Jaflong, which, despite having moved to a more prominent position on Crookes high street, is still serving its usual dependable Indian food. Along with the move there’s been a revamp of the extensive menu.

Delivery was very quick, under half an hour despite being told to expect a 60-minute wait, and everything was steaming hot.

We started with the mixed vegetable bhaji, a combination of soft, gingery aloo chop, vegetable bhaji and crisp onion bhaji, and shared a chicken saag balti full of enormous chunks of tender chicken and earthy spinach.

The lamb baruchi proved to be a dense dish, not too spicy, but mixed with potatoes and topped with more crisp, tasty onions.

Dishes aren’t too expensive, with the most costly being around £8 with free poppadoms and pickles.
