Curry Box

(4 customer reviews)


A selection of 10 traditional curry dishes from Aktar Islam. Each week Aktar develops a unique menu, depending on produce available as quality is the key. The template stays the same with a selection of curries from across all of India and menus are published weekly.

A curry box is enough for a very generous banquet for four, several meals for two, or a whole week of dinners for one.

Demand for our Weekly Curry Boxes has been amazing and we often find that we sadly are selling out on the weekend prior to the delivery. Luckily, you can now also order for further weeks in advance by selecting your delivery or collection date to avoid disappointment.

Reheating Instructions

You will receive detailed cooking directions with your box.

Most curries are prepared to be reheated quickly in a pan ready to serve. Some dishes may require reheating in the oven but at most we expect nothing longer than 20 minutes for any part of these curry dishes. Occasionally we release special menus that will require more time for cooking as you will be dealing with raw produce.

All pre-cooked curries are suitable for freezing and they reheat amazingly well.

  1. Deborah Crean

    We live in Manchester but had the curry box delivered to us without a problem. Good very carefully packaged and insulated to maintain freshness. 4 of us sat down to an amazing feast on Saturday evening with enough left overs for lunch the following day. Cannot recommend this delicious food highly enough. Fresh, full of flavour and great value for money. Excellent!

  2. Charlotte Harpur

    We are about to receive our fourth curry box on 23 October and we cannot wait!
    Packaging is perfect and we’ve received the box with everything chilled (we live in London) – instructions are clear and concise and the selection of food is to die for!
    It is an extremely generous amount of food and generally feeds 2 of us for about 5 meals (and we eat a lot!). I love that you just get what you’re given as well as it opens your eyes to dishes you may not have thought to try before. Did I mention it is extremely good value too!?! An amazing Michelin Starred chef, feeding you at home for 5 meals for £75 (inc delivery)…. A TOTAL TREAT! We cannot wait to visit your restaurant in the near future! Thank you!

  3. Mayassa Reip

    So far ordered 5 boxes and sent some to family and everyone raves about it. Everything is well explained and instructions easy to follow. Food is delicious and caters for meat eaters and vegetarian as well as people who prefer lightly spiced and those who prefer hotter options. It actually caters for 8 as portions are very generous. Have recommended to friends who have ordered and recommended to others. Fab!

  4. Peter Miller

    Absolutely delicious, and very good value. We have some of it every Saturday night and it lasts 4-5 weeks between 2 of us. So handy for us to pick up in the middle of Birmingham.
