    tbh chinese people dont take great care when it comes to keeping their takeaways in good hygiene. so as well as food poisoning you might even get some other weird conditions after eating it

    Wherever you go, check the hygiene rating first!

    Are you veggie? What do you like to eat normally?

    My family have ordered takeaways for the 12 years we've been in London, nothing strange has happened to us. Probably cause the place we were ordering the takeaways from were large, established restaurants rather than the standard takeaway branch in the high street.

    Chow mein never fails. Lots of noodles and veggies.
    Seaweed (which is not actually seaweed) is lush, salty, sweet, crisp.
    Vegetable spring rolls - good selection of veggies in a crispy wrapper thing.
    All versions of fried rice are amazing

    If you want to branch into meaty things then we love to get things like crispy lamb or duck with pancakes - crispy meat, sweet sticky sauce, veggies.

    Everyones favourite is sweet and sour *something*

    The options are endless. Depends how adventurous you're feeling!
