A curry favourite.

We have launched Friday Night Takeaway, a new series where we review takeouts across Wales from Chinese and Indian to pizza and fish and chips - and everything in-between.

We'll be judging our takeaways not just on the quality of the food but how long it took to arrive, the service and cost.

This week we had a take-out from Indian restaurant Eurasian Tandoori in Canton, Cardiff.

Where is it? 66 Cowbridge Road East, Cardiff, CF11 9DU Tell us more...

One of Cardiff's oldest, familyrun Indonesian and Indian restaurants, Eurasian specialises in both cuisines.

Does it deliver? Yes it does, just call 029 2039 8748 or 029 2034 5568.

On the menu: There's a wide variety of dishes at Eurasian, from Bangladeshi fish dishes, Punjabi baltis, Indonesian specialities and Chef's recommendations.

What did you order? For four people we ordered handi silsila (marinaded lamb with mushrooms), chicken rezella, Goan king prawn massalla, onion bhajis, pilau rice, plain nan bread.

What did it cost? Between the four of us it was PS35.15 How was the service? Excellent. There's a polite and attentive team at Eurasian and this time was no different. Service over the phone was quick and efficient. They also told us it was going to be longer than it actually was to be delivered. They said 40 minutes and it took about 30.

Did the food arrive hot? Yes.

How did it taste? Brilliant. Even though in the pictures the three main dishes look quite similar, their tastes were incredible. The chicken dish was spicy, with a slight dryness to the spice to give it a kick. The lamb and mushrooms in the handi silsila was just an outstanding dish. Smokey and a touch garlicky, it had many mushrooms in it.

Both meats were excellent quality, something which is very important when it comes to enjoying a curry.

The king prawn dish had a lot of prawns in it, and there was plenty of tasty sauce, but wasn't quite as awe-inspiring as the other two.

The rice was fine and the nans were suitably cooked for my taste. The onion bhajees were incredible, four in a portion, the size of each wasn't skimped upon. They were not in the least bit soggy or had too doughy a centre. Simple Indian starter done well.

Portion size: All three curries were adequately portioned to give all four of use a decent amount of each, and there was plenty of meat and prawns in them too.

Verdict: I couldn't stop talking about this curry for days, tasty, decent portions and price. Everythiyou need from your local Idian restaurant.

SCORE: 5/5
