Just like all of you, we here at SeamlessWeb are super-excited for Delivery Week starting on Monday! However, we were still excited to place a regular order today too and we chose some nice warm Indian food from Nirvana to combat the cold. I went for the Lamb Lunch Box featuring lamb curry, while AnnMarie went vegetarian with the Vegetable Lunch Box.
The food arrived quickly and there was A LOT of it. The main dishes came in segmented containers (see pics below) which was great because it allowed me to mix and match whatever I wanted on top of the huge portion of rice. The lamb was very flavorful and I really enjoyed the taste of the sauce. What I didn’t enjoy was the fact that there were bones. Since most Indian curries come boneless (at least in my experience), that was unexpected and unfortunate, making the meal a more difficult and messier process. Also, I thought that my vegetable was going to be cauliflower, but instead it was some potato/hot pepper combo that was good, but not great. However, the full order of naan mostly made up for any minor problems and made sure that I ended the meal full.
AnnMarie likes her veggies and loved that the spinach had that real pure essence of spinach. The lentils, on the other hand, were a little soupy for her liking and she would have preferred if they had more substance, so she wouldn’t recommend those. The well-seasoned rice and plentiful amount of food though certainly left her satiated though.
On the whole, Nirvana offers very good value in their lunch boxes, as you get a ton of solid Indian cuisine for a reasonable price. Try it out next time you’re especially hungry!
