Chairman of All About Ipswich, Dave Muller, hasn't let this challenging time stop him from enjoying his favourite meals from Ipswich restaurant, he's just swapped his evenings out in town with a takeaway!

Here's Dave's latest Ipswich takeaway review, we're calling it #DavesDinner...

Bella Napoli: authentic Italian pizza and pasta

Bella Napoli: authentic Italian pizza and pasta

"A perfect combination of lovely food and generous servings."

We had a delivery from the Queen Street branch of this popular local restaurant which is also doing takeaways. It was simple to order online and the food arrived on time, carefully packed and hot.

We started with a Four Cheese pizza consisting of mozzarella, blue mozzarella, goats cheese and parmesan. This was a great pizza with plenty of flavour and lots of filling; it went down equally well for lunch the day after!

My wife had Lamb Shish which was a generous portion of marinated grilled lamb with a side salad. The lamb was perfectly cooked, tender and moist with a smokey flavour and the salad was seriously fresh and crisp. Maybe not a meal you would associate with an Italian restaurant but it was excellent.

I had Lasagne Al Forno which has always been one of my favourites as it was the staple food which my children ate there way through during many European holidays! It was a large portion with a delicious bolognese meat sauce and lots of bechamel which created a rich creamy taste. My kind of lasagne.

Mizu: Ipswich's favourite noodle bar

Mizu: Ipswich's favourite noodle bar

"Just great fast food!"

"Such was the demand on Friday that the restaurant closed for a brief period, but we managed to secure a delivery slot and ordered three dishes being fully aware of the generous portion sizes.

We shared chilli and pepper squid as a starter which always excels with a glass of chilled white wine. Pam ordered the Singapore Vermicelli which was nearly my first choice; pork, prawn and chicken with fine rice noodles with a curry oil that was slightly spicy-hot. Absolutely delicious and packaged to keep hot.

Likewise my own choice of Amai Prawn with vegetables and udon noodles which were thick and full of moisture as were the succulent prawns. This was spicy-hot but easy to eat with a fabulous blend of tastes.

This is a terrific independent restaurant in the town centre and we can see why it's a firm favourite."

Mizu is open for takeaway and delivery, place your order via their website or by phone: 01473 288839.

The Forge Kitchen: award-winning smokehouse & bar

"This excellent independent eatery did not disappoint!"

"We decided to go for a light late supper from The Forge Kitchen on Duke Street; this excellent independent restaurant and bar did not disappoint!

The food arrived carefully packed and hot. We shared four of their 'Forge Flavour' small-plates; all of which were very generous portions. The Halloumi Bites served with Sweet Chilli Sauce were perfectly cooked and very tasty as were the Smoked Mixed Beans. These are both real favourites of mine.

"The Sweet Potatoes Fries, which my wife loves, were amongst the best I had tasted and the portion of Smoked Sausage and Chorizo was almost a main meal in itself and really high quality. Highly recommended."

The Forge Kitchen is open for collection and delivery from Thursday to Saturday 5:00-9:30pm and has a very well organised drive-through collection service; which can you place your order for by phone: 01473 232009. View their collection and delivery menu.

Nacton Fish Bar: one of Ipswich's favourite chip shops

Nacton Fish Bar: one of Ipswich's favourite chip shops

"Who doesn't love a great fish & chippy!"

"I ordered from a local business based in Ipswich for a most enjoyable Saturday night delivery. It’s all online with Takeaway Taxi, making placing an order very simple. I ordered Rock Eel and my wife ordered Cod along with a portion of chips, all medium sized with a side of mushy peas.

The food arrived ahead of time well wrapped and nicely warm. Nacton Road Fish Bar has an excellent reputation and deservedly so; the Rock Eel was succulent and perfectly cooked as was the Cod, both with just the right amount of batter. The medium sized portion of chips was more than enough and as a lover of mushy peas these were spot on.

A little expensive for two with the Taxi fare but, in lockdown, fully worth the luxury of door-to-door service and all whilst supporting a local business. Highly recommended!"

Order from Naction Road Fish Bar via Takeaway Taxi or JustEat.

A Passage to India: the home to exotic spices

A Passage to India: the home to exotic spices

"An excellent way to start the weekend!"

"This week we sampled an Indian Bangladeshi meal from a long established family run restaurant on Fore Street, A Passage to India. The food was delivered slightly early on Friday evening and was very well packed. We ordered Chicken Tikka as a starter, Bhuna King Prawn, Lamb Tikka Biriani and for sides; Tarka Dhal ,Gobi Bhajee and Tandoori Roti. As ever, Sayeed added a few extras in case we didn’t have enough!"

The meat was beautifully cooked and I particularly liked the King Prawn Bhuna with the prawns cooked to retain the most delightful flavour. The Tarka Dhal, a delicious lentil dish, was plentiful and almost a meal in itself along with the Gobi Bhajee which is cauliflower in a fragrant sauce. The rice and roti was more than enough to set the meal off and as ever there was enough left over for another meal. An excellent way to start the weekend."

Trongs: traditional Chinese cuisine

"My wife and I enjoyed a top class meal from this local family run restaurant, which is one of our favourites."

"The food arrived with perfect timing on our doorstep Friday evening. We shared Prawns with Sesame (one of my personal favourites) along with Barbecued Spare Ribs from the starter menu. This was followed by Lamb in Black Bean Sauce , Tao-Pan Prawns Peking Style and the ‘Hunan’ Spicy Fried Fine Noodles.

All the food was cooked to perfection maintaining the high quality Trongs is known for. The lamb was thinly sliced and succulent and the prawns retained that exceptional flavour and were still hot as if served in the restaurant. The noodles set the meal off and all we missed was the fabulous attentive service always provided in-house."
