Focussing on Indian food apart from sandwiches, salads and a few desserts, we found that Box8 is ideal for a desk lunch or a quick fix without piling on the calories. The app/website is categorised smartly so you know exactly where to for Biryani, Salads, Wraps or Dessert & Drinks. A la carte has it all in case you want to gorge, but what we most liked was Desi Box, Desi Openers, and All-In-One-Meals.
Our go-to pick is the All-In-One section, and we usually order we order the Dal Makhani Meal, Butter Chicken Meal, and Dhabha-style Mutton Meal. The meals come with a serving of curry, dal/cholle, paratha or rice, pickle, and salad. Parathas were just like from home – soft, layered and warm. The rice too gave us nothing to complain about. The packaging left us happy as the neatly divided box also had a salad, mint chutney and five mini gulab jamuns — a perfect end to the meal. Beware of colleagues who’ll swiftly come to steal them.
When we found they deliver until 1am, we naturally wanted a midnight feast of Shahi Paneer Biryani and Roast Chicken Wrap. The former was delicious, but the wrap was a little bland. Next time, maybe we’ll ask for the Chicken Tikka wrap. Throw in the Masala Lemonade or Iced Tea and it’s a little party!
