“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The quality of food received inside Hot Spot is superior to the food received by delivery. I often wonder how it can take 5 minutes to produce a doner kebab in store but a minimum of 45 minutes to have one delivered. I enjoy doner kebabs but I get so annoyed when the meat is taken from a hot pot and not cut fresh, this wouldn't happen anywhere else. On one visit one of the guys was cutting some freshly cooked doner meat only to put it in the container behind the one they served my doner meat from. These containers dry the meat out and when it is finally served up it is like semi dry cardboard instead of fresh meat. I would eat here regularly if they didn't do that, at the moment it's 5 or 6 times a year.

“Great takeaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

I use hot spot fairly regularly. Always find it very nice. The curry pizzas are fantastic, best pizzas I have ever had. Delivery has been known to take a little longer than told, but the anticipation just increases the enjoyment!

“Food ok - good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The food isn't brilliant but it's ok. You can order online and get it delivered or if you are out late you can grab food on your way home from the pub!
The meal deals are an absolute bargain (chips are pretty grim though!) and there is a massive selection so if there are a lot of you even the fussiest eater should be able to find something they like!
