Best Indian takeaways
Blending a diverse mix of balti, pan-Asian and vegan options, Amrit is a premier Indian restaurant in St Albans. The spot’s online reviews boast countless five-star ratings, with commenters heaping praise on menu staples like the goan fish curry, chilli paneer, and even dishes like lamb shank, which seldom appear on Indian menus.
Amrit has something for everyone, and despite stiff competition, this eatery comes up trumps in countless rankings of the best Indian takeaways in St Albans — signposting a firm favourite among both the locals and those passing through the commuter belt.
Aptly named and locally revered, Alban is a quaint Indian restaurant situated on Victoria St. It’s been serving traditional home-style Indian cuisine to patrons since 1984, delivering classic fare like tikka massalas, kormas and dhansaks, as well as all the sundries you know and love.
Alban even boasts its own chef specialty dishes like the ‘The Red Fort’ and ‘The Ruby’, which come tailored in spiciness to your tastes. The restaurant receives countless commendations for ‘the best curry in St Albans’ — and they’ll deliver it right to your door if you live nearby.
Best Mediterranean Takeaways
There’s a whole world of cuisine to be enjoyed, and one variety that doesn’t always receive its flowers is Mediterranean. Fusing the flavours of Greece and Morocco is Al Farid St Albans, a restaurant that puts flavour first. Enjoy inspired tagine dishes, tiger prawns, grilled squid and more delivered from this authentic mezze bar.
But it’s not all just meat and seafood. Moroccan mealtimes are made up of plenty of veggies and grains too, cooked to perfection and generously spiced. Savour delectable vegan options like addas bademjan (stuffed aubergine and tomato) and batata harra (harissa roast potatoes).
Adelaide Street’s famous Bar Meze is sure to tickle your tastebuds with its Cyprus-hailing fare. The Eastern Mediterranean way of eating emphasises “eat, drink, share” — and that’s just what you’ll do if you order from this taverna-inspired menu, featuring no set starters or main courses.
Instead, you can mix and match a dynamic assortment of seafoods, grilled meats, veggies and breads. Dip into baba ghanoush, humous and tzatziki to your heart’s content — then finish it all off with a spot of baklava.
