Romance is in the air, the kids are with the grandparents, you’ve got some peace and quiet and you want to do something nice. Date night is on the cards and you fancy an evening out but money’s tight. But not to worry you don’t have to go out to have a nice time. What’s stopping you from cooking up your own feast with one of our fakeaways? Pick your best outfit (or just get into your PJs), dress your table, light the candles and you’ve got yourself a quiet, romantic meal for two in the comfort of your own home.

Set the scene

Let’s set some ambiance! Bust out the linens and prepare the napkins. It’s time to get romantic so add some simple candles to the tables and play some romantic music and you’re ready.

Here’s our favourite fakeaways:


An all-time favourite of ours, I mean who doesn’t like pizza? It’s a crime if you don’t, the cheesy goodness is just too good. But there can be quite a battle when it comes to choosing a topping. According to the Independent, the UK’s favourite pizza topping is mushrooms, who’d have thought it? Even better pineapple isn’t ranked the worst! But let’s not argue about it, you can find out how to make a homemade pizza below and then you can simply add your favourite toppings.



Chinese is the UKs favourite takeaway. According to Hungry House, the top five Chinese dishes are Chow Mein, Crispy Aromatic Duck, Egg Fried Rice, Sweet and Sour and Spring Rolls. Check out our below recipe for a Chinese delight!


In the UK, we spend over £250 million a year on Indian Food, so we couldn’t leave this option out. Get your spices at the ready it’s time to cook yourself up an Indian treat. This is a super quick recipe to be service with rice or naan.
