Turkey Takeaway 2018


Rebecca Cunniffe Anatara Eastern Mangroves hotel

Turkey - 5/5

We chose a small turkey designed for 5-6 people. The meat was really moist, very well seasoned; couldn’t fault it. Came with gravy and cranberry which both needed heating.

Accompaniments 4/5 A very traditional and straight forward selection to choose from, all 200g portions. We choose - portions of roast potatoes, roast sweet potato, sprouts and mixed veg. All the veg was good, a little cool but that’s because we were late picking up, the mixed veg and sprouts were firm not over cooked. They were all in foil containers so easy to reheat. Losing a point here only because there was no option for stuffing; and the mixed veg was half cauliflower half a mix of all the other veg (carrot broccoli and courgette- we’re not cauliflower fans in our house). We were very pleased and ordered again for New Year’s Day!


Eleanor Genato-de Leon La Cuisine de Manou 5/5, juicy and delish even without the gravy.. Value for money, indeed. ❤️


Julie Duszak Leopolds - food 3/5 but for the money it might get another star; Turkey was just the wrong side of dry, but not bad; veg were bland, potatoes needed a little creaminess, gravy was pretty good but it seemed to be made like a curry gravy not traditional (not in flavor, but in consistency/cooking method); I knew there wouldn’t be stuffing/dressing but I’m still sad without it; apple/pear(?) “salad” went uneaten; apple pie was great. I would get their turkey again, but the veggies seemed more like an afterthought so I wouldn’t bother. Service is great though!


Anna Moss Abu Dhabi Golf Club: Turkey looked smallish but comfortably fed 10 people plus leftovers. It was tasty and but maybe a teeny bit dry - 4/5. The sides were disappointing - very small portion of roast potatoes, there was no « roasted veg » as advertised the stuffing was bizarre and the chipolatas pale and unappetising. The gravy and cranberry sauce were great though. I was glad we had cooked extra veg and sides ourselves to make up for what was lacking. Overall 2/5 for the sides. Everything was hot, well packaged and ready on time, but I think we will try somewhere different next time.


Su Nutton Jones the grocer raha Food 4/5 turkey a bit dry veggies nice. Looking at these reviews there are better value for money options out there than Jones Tasted good


Charlotte Cochrane-Dyet Turkey take away by Sofitel hotel, second year running- fantastic! 5/5 for turkey- cooked beautifully, hate to use this word, but it was incredibly moist and succulent and 5/5 for side dishes too-- roast potatoes, roast parsnips, red cabbage, chestnuts, Brussels sprouts, green beans, stuffing, fresh cranberry sauce and a delicious thick gravy to top it off! Thanks sofitel! 👍❤️oh and they kindly threw in a freee delicious pumpkin cheese cake!


Aidín McGuill Beach Rotana 5/5 Turkey was beautiful, so moist. Came with mashed and roast potatoes, roasted veg, red cabbage, chestnuts, stuffing, gravy and the most delicious cranberry sauce! Was ready when we requested and piping hot. Also got a ham from Spinneys WTC which tasted so good. Would definitely recommend both.


Ashley Bryant Had Crowne Plaza on Yas for Thanksgiving and was so impressed! They were speedy getting it to me and all the sides were Fab!!! Great price and will order again next year


Nicole Clatworthy Crowne Plaza Yas - Turkey 5/5 lovely & moist & a great size. Sides 4/5 only because the sprouts were very tough. Great service from them & great value with B.B. discount - 2nd year in a row 👍😊


Claire O'Connor Hartnett Leopold Turkey 5/5 really nicely cooked, very moist and flavorful. 5/5 for veg, good variety and 5/5 for super creamy mash. 0/5 for the sauces though - watery but greasy and flavourless, they shouldn't have bothered with them. Good things I made my own gravy before hand 😁 oh and everything was ready at exactly 1pm, our arranged time for pick up


Donna Sweeney-Simmons Today we decided to have a lazy day and pre-ordered from Southern Sun Abu Dhabi their take away Turkey & trimmings. Turkey was delish & veggies were plentiful & perfectly cooked, no fighting with the brussel sprouts!! ☺️ 5/5 We also chose the raspberry log for a small additional cost which was nice & light but very sweet 4.5/5


Erika Marriott St Regis Corniche 5/5 in every aspect... super organised pick up with a waiting area and complimentary refreshments even though they were ready at the agreed pick up time so we didn’t have to wait, beautifully packaged, they even threw in some Christmas crackers, and all the food was delicious. It felt very special. They also called the next day to ask for our feedback. We highly recommend and would have it again for sure


Kate Faulkner We did La Cuisine de Manou for the 2nd year running. Turkey was 5/5 - moist, tasty and piping hot. Sides were 4/5 - only deducted a point as the potato gratin was slightly more al dente than I personally prefer and the chestnuts in the roasted veg were like rocks. Loved the free addition of a festive Yule log. Delivery was friendly and bang on time. These guys consistently excel themselves. Big thumbs up.


Karen McCutchon Westin Turkey... 4/5 perfectly cooked turkey, but they had forgotten one of the side dishes and had to go back to pick it up. Would order again 🙂. Also had a ham from Springbok which was absolute perfection. 5/5!!

Sabrina Haysom Southern Sun’s 5-6kg turkey, 348aed (which was including a 20% best bites discount). 4.5/5. This is the second year in a row and we’ve loved it both times. Came with a gravy, cranberry sauce, roast veg, red cabbage and stuffing. They are also great with allergies and labelled what I wasn’t able to eat (just the stuffing).


Shauna Boyle We decided to get a rolled turkey as we were a small group from spinneys (New Zealand sourced) was stuffed with a cranberry stuffing and I have to say delicious, very succulent turkey and plenty for sandwiches today. 4/5


Sarah Christiansen Crowne Plaza. 5/5 for everything from amazing service when ordering, collection and the turkey and sides.


Joanne Baaklini Grand Millennium was terrible sadly 😥, ordered a bigger Turkey but what they don’t tell you is that it’s only veg for 4-6 people regardless of the turkey size 🤷🏽‍♀️......terrible portions and dry turkey. It was only for Christmas Eve so it was as important as a Christmas Day dinner but wasnt impressed 2/5 max


Elaine Hunter Yas Hotel Roast Beef 4/5 Perfectly cooked roast beef. Delicious veggies (carrot very slightly undercooked). Roast potatoes and proper gravy. Mustard and bread rolls also included.


Nicole Ferguson 5/5 Marco Pierrie White! 6th year running 👍👍👍😋😋😋


Tawnee Brilla Oceana Grill at Hilton Grand Capital Hotel. Came with turkey, 2 gravies, cranberry sauce, roasted brussel sprouts, roasted mixed veg (mushrooms/red pepper/zucchini/green beans/carrots) and the most amazing roasted potatoes! All for 215aed! Everything was so tasty and the turkey was juicy and had great flavor 5/5 for sure.


Rudiana Martini 4/2 leopolds 😣 all the roasted veg was swimming on the turkey blood/juice on the bottom of the roasting tray, the gravy was a mushroom sauce and got delivered one hour later. The dessert was surprisingly good.


Sarah Goodson Chiadmi Waitrose spit roast turkeys for 139! Why didnt i know about tbis earlier lol. Was delicious.
