To cater to the people living away from families who end up ordering food or eating out, Amit & Anshul, two graduates from IIT came up with the concept of Box8. Their idea behind this was to serve delicious food that is easy on the stomach.
Thanks to Ankush, I was asked to review Box8 and boy was I in for a treat. So I went with ordering quite a few items and it was delivered within 25 minutes. That was really quick I must say with the number of items ordered. The packaging was absolutely clinical. The curry from one compartment didn’t spill into the other. All containers were spill free. Plenty of packaged spoons, forks and tissues were provided. It was a totally engineered meal.
The Veg Extravaganza Meal was the All in 1 meal. It had paneer in makhani curry, a grilled veg patty, dal makhni, salad, chutney and a dessert. A choice of rice / paratha or rice + paratha was offered. I chose the paratha. The Paneer Makhni was totally creamy and yummy with soft cubes of paneer. The vegetarian patty was decent although it had crumbled a bit during the delivery. It went very well along with the chutney served in a small cup. The dal makhni had the royal creamy consistency. The salad had juliennes of onion, capsicum, tomato and cabbage in a lime dressing which tasted pretty good. The paratha being a little dry and chewy was the only disappointment for me. The All in 1 meal is sufficient for one hungy person.
The Murgh Dum Biryani was the classic boneless chicken biryani. It had perfectly cooked and marinated chicken morsels under a bed of rice and fried onions. There was adequate masala and the side of raita complimented the biryani pretty well. This biryani was sufficient to satisfy two tummies at a time.
I also went for the Paneer Makhani curry in the A la carte section along with a side of Basmati Rice. The portion of the curry was sufficient for 3 people. Again, a rich and creamy gravy with soft cubes of paneer with a tinge of sweetness was delicious. The basmati rice was good but I felt that a side of jeera rice would pair well here.
The Iced Tea came in a bottle which was just colder than room temperature. I was expecting a much colder drink. It had the tea punch and was good.
The Rich Chocolate Brownie was a little too dense and dry for my liking. I would give this a miss.
I think Box8 is a really good option to solve all your lunch / dinner ordering woes. It delivers on food quality, quantity and delivery time. A big shout out to Ankush & Umesh for coordinating and providing me with a seamless delivery and meal experience.
