A Taste Of Delhi 2 Go

Lynda Moyo orders in at Confidential HQ

Written by . Published on June 28th 2012.


A Taste Of Delhi 2 Go

HERE at Confidential we’re always looking for new ways to stuff our greedy guts, particularly during lunch times when eating options can get a little mundane.

For times when your one mile work radius offers little more than expensive pre-packed sandwiches, it’s good to know there are local companies out there willing to bring a bit of variety to your palette at no extra cost. One such company is Delhi 2 Go.

Dehli 2 Go food has a certain authenticity to its food that makes it difficult to place within the fast food category.

The first of a chain of Indian cuisine and fast food outlets, Delhi 2 Go is located on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter. With the aim of bringing in lunch time trade, the deli counter of the joint will appeal to those who like to gaze indecisively into glass chillers full of salads and browze a menu full of curries, kebabs and the popular lunch time favourite of ‘rice and three’ – that’s three different types of curry served with rice for £4.20.

But if, like Confidential HQ, your office is further away than sniffing distance from the perfect curry, Delhi 2 Go is willing to go that extra mile.

Ordering in, one lacklustre lunch time, we were told so long as we spent over £10 in total, lunch could be delivered free of charge within a three mile radius in less than 40 minutes. Of course £10 wouldn’t even cover Gordo’s starter so everyone could rest assure that a seemingly extravagant lunch wouldn’t mean any extra expense incurred.

That said, you don’t necessarily need to order in the banquet we had. That would just be silly, right? Judge for yourself below:

Delhi2Go - a feast for the eyes and the bellyDelhi2Go - a feast for the eyes and the belly

In no particular order we troffed our way through spinach and potato pakora, meat samosas, vegetable samosas, onion bhajis, pilau rice, mushroom rice, a mountain of naans, salad, lamb karahi, chicken tikka, seekh kebabs, chicken tikka kebabs and a litre bottle of Coca Cola. It fed more than ten of us to the point of bursting with plenty leftover and to quote Gordo “tasted better than This ‘n’ That” whose ‘rice and three’ we’ve always loved, just up the road from Delhi 2 Go on Soap Street. They’ve now got some healthy competition.

When it comes to food delivery, most people generally know what to expect – not a restaurant class meal or any fancy trimmings, but stodgy stuff-it-in junk that’s going to make them want to go on a low sodium diet.

But Dehli 2 Go food has a certain authenticity to its food that makes it difficult to place within the fast food category. Everything arrives hot and within 40 minutes, as promised.  From the meat dishes, which were beautifully moist and tender, to the salad that clearly wasn’t just an afterthought, delivered food hasn’t been this exciting since the creation of Domino’s Two For Tuesday. And I know which one I’d rather order.

Delhi 2 Go is available online at www.delhi2go.co.uk or if you're lucky enough to be local, pop in: Delhi 2 Go, 119 Oldham Street, City, M4 1LN.

Delhi 2 Go is great fresh food, although I think for charm and value you have to go a long way to top This & That. That said post pub in the NQ the old Tastemaster is sorely missed around our way.

StephJune 28th 2012.

Delhi 2 Go is awful. I live around the corner so tried it when it first opened, waited 30 minutes for my curry and it tasted like one you get from a kebab shop and had little meat in.
Thinking this could have been an early teething problem I tried again, but unfortunately it was no better, very little meat and nothing even remotely resembling those curries in your photos.
Oh and by the way have you ever seen the Delhi 2 Go deli counter because on the two occasions I went in it just had a couple of ice cream tubs with bits of salad in. Hardly a delicatessen.

I notice there are no prices on this write up, does this mean it's advertorial or a complimentary lunch?

Lisa HarveyJune 29th 2012.

The food arrived before time, was very nicely packed , serving was generous and tasted delicious, one of the best places ive ever ordered from, will definitely order again, very impressive service, thankyou

Jonathan SchofieldJune 29th 2012.

Steph, it wasn't an advertorial it was a freebie and it was good apparently. If we score it then it's an impartial review.

James KayJune 29th 2012.

It's obviously really nice because one of the team is attacking it with 2 plates! Get stuck in Ms H! ;-)

Thomas LambJune 29th 2012.

Stupid comment.

Jonathan SchofieldJune 29th 2012.

Suspicious Thomas. If it had been rubbish - I wasn't in the office - then we simply wouldn't have written about it. Folks this is hardly Watergate.

StephJune 29th 2012.

@Jonathan So you wouldn't have written about it if it'd been rubbish. That sounds like you adopted the Sugarvine approach to editorial / reviewing, if it's bad you don't say anything incase you upset anybody. Hardly impartial.

Jonathan SchofieldJuly 2nd 2012.

Steph, for God's sake don't be ridiculous, any scored and rated review on here is utterly impartial as are the listings, the news, the art and architecture I could go on. Sugarvine - pah. If we were I'd carping comments off here rather than let them ride.

IanJuly 5th 2012.

Surely all articles and reviews should be impartial and objective. This is nothing more than an advert for Delhi 2 Go.

Honestly, who wrote this? The owner of the chain?

Salad that clearly wasn't just an afterthought? Lettuce, tomato and cucumber?!

CharlieJuly 2nd 2012.

So when you phoned up to order the curry, did you say "our office is here" or did you say "we're a website that reviews food and drink in Manchester and our office is here?"

No they rang us because we are a magazine that reviews food and drink and offered to deliver

DavidJuly 2nd 2012.

You did not answer his question.Why did they ring you up and offer to provide you with free food?.People don't give something for nothing.How much else of your journalism on this website is a result similar offers?.
This goes to the heart of whether we as readers can trust your website,to provide honest journalism.If not you will soon be finished.

SamanthaJuly 8th 2012.

Are they not allowed to like stuff just because it is free?
