Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far in 2021. We couldn’t be more excited to see the blue skies and daffodils blooming. Easter bank holiday weekend is fast approaching, lockdown restrictions are easing across the UK and the timing with the forecast couldn’t be better!

So, the weather forecast is set. But what about your takeaway forecast? As we know the foreseeable future for the UK will feature parks, gardens, pub gardens and walks before restrictions ease further and restaurants and bars will open. Alfresco dining and picnics in the park and garden are the perfect way to spend an evening with your group of six.

Here at Royal Mahal, we have you covered with the perfect menu for your picnic. Now is the time to be reuniting with loved ones, and friends. So start planning your park and garden visits with the help of our award-winning chefs! Each dish is mouth-wateringly tasty and gives the perfect opportunity to graze all afternoon in the sun.

Being located in the centre of Tooting, we are at the heart of lots of greenery for you to enjoy a Royal Mahal takeaway whilst relaxing in the beautiful parks that South London has to offer. Tooting Bec Common is around an 8-minute walk away from our restaurant where you can grab and go with your takeaway. There are also surrounding areas that have parks for you to visit such as Clapham Common, Streatham Park and Common, and also Wandsworth Park and Common.

At Royal Mahal, we promise to bring you a blend of culture, panache, and we aim to make your dining experience memorable, every time. Usually, this would be through the combination of our food and our interiors. But until we can welcome you back into our beautiful space, we can offer you the food element in picnic form.

We have put together some of our favourite items which are perfect for your picnic in the park with your group of 6:

Masala chips: Our Masala chips are the perfect lunchtime snack! And are even more fitting for a picnic park snack. As part of our treat food range and including a special masala sauce these are spicy, succulent and saucy. This is not a dish to be missed.

Papri Chaat: A staple of Pakistani street food; chickpeas, crispy papri, sweet yoghurt sauce, topped with a tangy tamarind sauce. With one bite, you’ll be transported to the food land of Lahore.

Chicken Biryani: Royally famous, our Biryani is packed full of flavour, filling and aromatic, this is the ultimate dish you’ll want to share with your family and friends.

Chilli paneer: A classic Royal Mahal traditional dish. Our sweet, spicy and sour chilli paneer with fresh vegetables is a classic yet essential dish that pairs perfectly with Naan bread or Roti.

Dynamite duo: The dynamite duo is bold and fiery. It can be served hot or cold and can be accompanied by any dish you like! With a choice of either prawn or chicken, this makes the ideal sharer.

Lamb chops: Our Lamb Chops are distinctive, tender and exquisite. The perfect sharer for your Easter bank holiday weekend feast and an absolute must-have on the takeaway menu!

Our selection of Naan bread and Rotis: Choose from Cheese, Peshwari, Rogni, Chilli or Garlic. Soft and delicious and perfect for pairing with one of our curries or just dipping them in our array of sauces.

Mocktails & Lassi: We have a great selection of refreshing mocktails, from our classic original mojito to our sensible strawberry heaven or maybe something a little more exotic with our mango mania. We also have an array of lassis and milkshakes, which will leave you with a refreshing taste of summer!

We hope you enjoy some fun in the sun in the coming weeks before we re-open our doors in May. Be sure to tag us in your Instagram stories with your Royal Mahal picnic in the park!
