Curry Box

(10 customer reviews)


A selection of 10 traditional 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.


SKU: N/A Category:

Another incredible selection of regional favourites for you all to enjoy at home.

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.


None of the dishes are suitable for any onion, garlic or tomato allergies.

Dishes containing gluten (G), nuts (N), dairy (D) or suitable for vegetarians (V) are marked on the menu.

We are unable to alter or swap dishes for dietary requirements but hope the selection would be sufficient for all.  Please check this page a week before to see what menu you will be receiving, the menu is also published on the @aktarathome Instagram feed.

  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.

    We ordered a delivery a couple of weeks ago and have been astounded by the quality and quality of food. We froze a lot of the food and with the addition of a little extra rice and naan we’ve managed to get 7 hearty meals for 2 people from the box, all absolutely delicious. We will definitely be ordering again and we have recommended it to lots of people.

    Ordered our box and it waiting for us on Friday morning. Wow ! Such amazing value for money. This will feed me and my better half for a month. The leg of lamb was everything I had hoped for and more. Every element was spot on. Didn’t disappoint. I urge you just to order and try !!!

  7. david

    We live in Glasgow and had the curry box delivered. Cool box worked very efficiently, we weren’t in and arrived an hour or so after the box was delivered. Everything in the box still very cold. Food is amazing, absolutely stunning flavours

  8. Steve Johnston

    This food is excellent. Excellent value but, more importantly, the quality has no equal. We live near Bath and have used The Mint Rooms but I believe this is better. I also love the variety.
    Well done to you and your team.

  9. Robin M

    Highly recommended for a treat! Menu was superb and great to be able to try range of different dishes. We’re on our 4th meal for the 2 of us and still going strong so think would easy feed 5/6 big eaters if you’re looking to crack through as a banquet! Will deffo be ordering again and perfect present for any curry fan. 💪👍

  10. Deepak (verified owner)

    Wonderful food! Great variety of taste. Took organising to prepare/reheat the different dishes but well worth the effort. The preparation instructions were clear. The box is meant for four people, it did the four of us two meals and still some left over. We chose to prepare only some of the dishes the first time around and saved the others for the next day meal. I’ve grown up with Indian food and this was right up there with the best. For the quality and quantity, great value.
