  1. Great tasting food

The most important quality to look for in a takeaway restaurant is great tasting food. After all, it’s the primary reason you’re having a takeaway in the first place! Whilst it will be hard to determine the quality of food if you’ve never used the takeaway before, you can always check their reviews and ratings to see what other people have got to say about them!

  1. Plenty of choice

A great takeaway will offer plenty of choice to customers. Whilst they’re likely to have a speciality e.g. pizza, Indian, Chinese; they should offer plenty of different options for you to choose from. A really great takeaway will cater for vegetarian, Halal, gluten free and other special dietary requirements too.

  1. Affordable prices

Although you probably don’t mind spending a little extra on a takeaway, since it’s a treat and you won’t have to cook, you shouldn’t have to spend a fortune! A great takeaway will offer great tasting food at reasonable prices. They’re also likely to offer money saving deals, especially for those looking to feed their whole family.

  1. Free / cheap delivery

A good takeaway will offer delivery in addition to collection but a great takeaway will offer free / cheap delivery. Again, you don’t want to have to spend a fortune on having your takeaway delivered to your home, as it will hike up the price of your meal. You should only be looking to spend a couple of pounds at the very most.

5. Speedy service

No one wants to have to wait hours for a takeaway! A great takeaway will ensure they can get your order to you within an hour, even at busy times (such as weekend nights). When ordering your takeaway, they should provide you with an estimated delivery time. It’s a good idea to check their reviews before you place an order to check they are good at delivery orders on time.

6. Order accuracy

There’s nothing worse than getting all excited about your takeaway arriving, only to find that the restaurant has made a mistake. Order accuracy is so important and something you should definitely look for in a great takeaway. Again, it’s hard to judge if you’ve not ordered before and mistakes do happen but the best way to get a good idea of their order accuracy is to check the takeaway’s reviews online.

7. Excellent feedback

Last but not least, a great takeaway should have excellent customer feedback. Always spend a few moments checking how other people have reviewed and rated the takeaway you are thinking of using. If the majority of their feedback is great then get ordering!
