Indian

spinach and paneer dhal
tandoori chicken
lamb rogan josh (if lamb has been simmering for hours and is tender)
biriyani (the proper biriyani, that takes a few hours to cook and is in distinct layers)
roti/chopati

Indian.

Chicken Jalfrezi or Dopiaza, Rogan Josh, Dhal, naan and always the mixed pickle.  With the rice cooked at home to be cheap!

The hottest dish they have. (And then order it extra hot!)

Indian

I'd get (more than normal cos it's a special occasion)

Samosas or Pakoras
Tandoori Lamb Cutlets
Shahi paneer (paneer in butter chicken sauce) or malai kofta
Saag chicken
Rice
Plain Naan
Gulab Jaman if they make good ones (not canned!)

*sigh* I've already bought stuff to cook dh a seafood dinner but Indian sounds so good...

Indian - lamb korma and I'm always a sucker for a good butter chicken.  Some garlic naan mmm.  Tandoori chicken is good too.  

If it's chinese something like salt and pepper calamari, chicken with cashews and been satay.  

mmm takeaway.

Indian for sure.

Pretty much all their entrees are delish, then lamb or vegetable korma, and a good butter chicken or chicken butter masala.

not in to Chinese.. if you had said Thai we would have a mighty battle on our hands.

Chinese biggrin.gif Dunno why, I like both. But we had Chinese, last night. We got Chicken Egg Foo Yung, Steak and mushrooms in oyster sauce, and salt & pepper squid, plus soup. Mmmm. Made a nice leftover lunch today, too! My favorite Chinese takeout dishes aren't available in Oz. sad.gif

If you get Indian, by far, my fave is palak paneer. That with some tasty naan and I'm your best friend.
