Angon Delivery Review

Simon | Oct 6, 2004 07:48 PM

So, i decided to see what all the fuss was about by ordering delivery, hoping to get a taste of the food without being turned off by the much-hyped service problems.

Food arrived promptly (in 40 minutes -- the person taking the order said it would be 45).

Tilapia: liked the dish, but the fish was folded over a couple times to fit in the delivery container, and the result was jagged spikey mess of deadly toothpick-size bones. Now, i'm not fishbone phobic (i regularly eat whole fish etc) but the bone situation here was a pretty unpleasant. Perhaps if served on a platter in the restaurant it would have been easier to debone and eat.

Palik Ponir: Very good, more like sauteed spinach than the greasy creamy puree most places serve. Wish the portion was larger though.

Chicken Vindaloo: not bad, but undistinguished.

Overall: definitely better and much less greasy than any other Sixth St. Indian, but based on this first sampling, i wasn't wowed. I'll prob order again though and try more items.
