A Night In With Kukd

A takeaway on Friday night is practically a British institution. In my house, our go-to is a curry, usually eaten from oversized trays on our laps in front of a movie. So when Kukd approached me to ask if I’d try out their service with a takeaway, I was more than happy to oblige.

Unlike other takeaway sites like Hungry House or Just Eat, Kukd allows you to order takeaways and book tables at local restaurants, and for every takeaway order placed, a child in Bangladesh gets a meal, at no extra cost to you, or the restaurant.

After looking through the selection of places local to me, I decided to order from Bashundora Indian Restaurant in Sutton Coldfield. I was greedy and ordered a tandoori king prawn biryani with a side of saag paneer and a garlic naan.

The only downside was that Bashundora don’t deliver, so I popped down there half an hour later to collect.

The portion size was huge, so I only had half of the rice, curry and saag paneer, but that was plenty.

The rice had loads of butterflied prawns in and was topped with chopped fresh herbs, the mild curry was packed with veg and the saag paneer was rich and tasty.

Steven had a tandoori mixed grill and some chips, which he’d already tucked into before I had chance to get a picture, so I think that means he enjoyed it!

As well as getting great food, the ordering process with Kukd was easy, and for every order you make, you earn Kukd points that you can redeem against future orders. Our total meal came to £27.10, but there’s a 50p card charge added on. I had £20.00 worth of Kukd points from the brand and 10% off from Bashundora, so I paid £4.89.

Then there’s the warm fuzzy feeling you get from feeding a child. A few days after my order, I got an email from Kukd, with a picture of some Bangladeshi children and a note to say thank you for feeding us, which made me smile.

So if you enjoy a regular Friday night takeaway, try Kukd next time and let your little treat is bringing a nutritious meal to a child that needs it.
