What do curry lovers really like to eat?

In a recent survey we asked: “What’s your choice of protein when you order a curry?”

Baaaa. Good old lamb proved to be popular with 48% of people, with chicken, somewhat surprisingly, trailing with 26%. Vegetables or lentils options – and there are certainly some good ones on Indian menus – were the choice of 20%, while fish or prawns mustered just 6% of the vote. Price was no doubt a factor here, with king prawns outstripping most menu items by a fair whack.

How much should you tip a takeaway delivery driver?

In a recent survey we asked: “When you order a takeaway curry how much do you tip the driver?”

A rather stingy 68% replied “nothing, I’ve paid already!” A bit of loose change surely guys and gals? Some 12% did say they’d tip the loose change, the same number who’d give 10% of the bill to the driver. A rather indignant 8% declared that they’d tip “more than that!” I’m pretty sure I know which group will be getting their curries quicker next time…
