I've never had an outstanding takeaway in Forest Hill, sadly. The south asian places are all middling to poor (Babur excepted but only ever eaten in there) - they all seem to have a problem infusing the meat with good flavour, so you feel like you're having an identikit meat dish with some average sauce accompanying it. I also grew up in Leicester and subsequently lived next to the Balti triangle in Birmingham so quite possibly I've just been spoiled. Gurkha's Flavour is pretty decent IME but they do have an unfortunate record of getting orders wrong.

Pizza delivery is all average (the chains are the best, which is not a great sign), Chinese is poor, I'm not so negative about Thai Orchard as others but then I'm not particularly discriminating with Thai food so probably a bad judge... yeah, there's definitely a gap in the market for good takeaways here.

This BOnA place looks a cut above at least from external appearance, so I'm looking forward to that.
