A few weeks back we got the chance to sample a takeaway curry from The Radhuni. We were soon due to be moving home and with the new house being only 5 minutes drive away we thought it would be a great opportunity to try out a new local curry house. That aside we’ve never been known to say no to a curry.
The Radhuni has been open since 2011 and we had already heard good things about it from friends and colleagues. We headed over to the website to peruse the take away menu and make our choices.
What’s on offer?
As someone who is dairy free the first thing I noticed was the dietary annotations advising which dishes contain dairy, nuts or gluten. This is something which is very hit and miss with take away menus so it was great to see it here and made it much easier to select suitable dishes. The take away menu is also substantial with lots of options including a wide range of veggie dishes. We ended up going for the following dishes: Assorted Kebab Selection, Chicken Tikka Jaipuri (cooked with charcoal chicken with fresh herbs and spices in a fairly hot sauce. Garnished with fried green pepper, mushrooms , diced onions and green chillies cooked with home made tomato ketchup.), Murgh Mango (Chicken tikka cooked with mango, onion, garlic, fresh coriander and mild spices, finished with fresh cream.), a pilau and mushroom rice and a garlic naan.
How was it?
‘Radhuni’ means ‘passionate cook’ and I would say the quality of the food we tried was testament to that. The Chicken Tikka Jaipuri was lovely and rich with a bit of a kick but nothing too crazy. With a lovely tangy taste from the homemade tomato ketchup. There were nice big chunks of green pepper, onion and chillies, which added a great level of texture. I really don’t like when curries are completely pureed.
The Murgh Mango was similar in style to a butter chicken or korma but with the added note of sweetness from the mango. The chicken itself was cooked perfectly and the portion sizes were excellent. The rice and naan were also great and travelled very well which isn’t always the case particularly with naan.
We both agreed that this was certainly one of the best takeaway curries we’ve had (and we’ve tried a fair few!). It’s great knowing that it’s now just a short drive down the road and we will be back for another round very soon.
Al Fresco Dining
We’re also looking forward to dining in and trying the al a carte menu. I only got the chance to have a quick glimpse inside when collecting the food but it looked very nice and they also have a lovely outdoor garden dining space which would be perfect for a summers evening alfresco dinner and drinks.
Based on our take away experience The Edinburgers highly recommend The Radhuni for some of the finest Indian cuisine in Midlothian. We’ll be sure to update the post once we get a chance to try out the a la carte menu.
