Reviewed: Indizza — The Delivery Kitchen
Among the many food delivery services in the market today, Indizza — The Delivery Kitchen, with its authentic North Indian cuisine, seemed like an interesting bet. Based in Worli, it delivers meals from Cuff Parade to Mahim, every day of the week. My team and I decided to order lunch from here and, just a heads up, there were lots of empty plates and happy smiles around the table by the end of the meal.
First things first, the food was delivered on time! The perpetually hungry souls that we are, it is highly important that our meals come on time — and if they don’t, well, let’s just say #Hangry. So that point was checked off. The next was the packaging — neat and clean. Packed in black plastic containers with transparent lids, the food looked absolutely fresh and we were ready to tuck in. Accompanying the containers were cutlery and tissues, which means you can even eat these meals on-the-go too. While the first impression was great, the main criteria was still left to be judged — the taste.
We started off with the Mushroom Bharwan Tikka, which was an instant hit. The right amount of spices and a cheesy filling, this one tasted just right. You get around eight pieces with a few roasted onions and bell peppers for Rs 225, which is quite reasonable. My colleague hopped on to the Banjara Kofta next. TBH, I have never liked Kofta, but this one was a surprise! Dipped in gravy, it tasted delicious with the parantha. If only I had a glass of buttermilk with it, it would have been a match made in food heaven. The Chicken Lazeez was a little on the sweeter side, but nonetheless was something we would order again. My editor, who has a low intake for spicy food, was certainly happy with it! Lastly, the Mutton Biryani was juicy with the rice perfectly cooked and the pieces so succulent that they instantly melted in our mouths. Along with the parantha, there was the truffle cheese naan that wasn’t too bad either. Though I would suggest you eat it as soon as it gets delivered, as it tends to get chewy when it turns cold.
The food came with pickle, the standard one which most restaurants give, and a curd-mint chutney. Frankly, the food was so good that we didn’t feel the need to have the chutney with it.
IN A NUT SHELL
All in all, it was one of the best team lunches we have had. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself — you won’t be disappointed. Plus, the whole experience costed just about Rs 1,000, which is amazing, especially since the rates at most other places are rocket high. Fine dining meals at your doorstep, what else do you need in life? Oh, and on weekends, they deliver as late as 3 am. Impressed much?
