Delicious as always - Jo,N4

Food was late but excellent and generously portioned. - John,N7

I can't find Fabio's details on the Housebites website tonight, so I can't check to be sure, but from memory Fabio had described his food as Thai/Vietnamese, which it is not at all. Instead, I would say that it's more of a Japanese British fusion, with more of a leaning towards British. The vegetarian potstickers are essentially gyoza, and they're really tasty. The pan-fried panko chicken is barely fusion. Panko literally means 'breadcrumbs' in Japanese, and the tonkatsu (pork cutlet) sauce is again Japanese, but whilst a couple of the ingredients were Japanese, the overall style of the dish is big, bold and British. Based on this, I would say that if you're ordering Fabio's food expecting Thai, Vietnamese, or anything resembling Asian, you're not going to get that. If however you're willing to overlook this technicality, then I can definitely recommend Fabio's food based on its taste. The food was also delivered 25 minutes late, without explanation or apology, though a piece of cheesecake was added to my order (possibly as compensation/apology). - Bonny,N5

the food was excellent but it was a bit late. - Ian,N16

very tasty - Yannick,N7

It was OK.. nothing special. I could have made this at home myself to be honest. I didn't particularly like the sauce and the mustard on the potato mash. - Marvin,N19

Amazing restaurant quality meal. The meat was tender and so tasty, and the brownie was the best we've ever had. Will definitely order again. - Annabelle,N7

Lovely food!!! Thanks! - Doris,N4

Excellent braised beef for two. Great portion sizes and delivered hot and on time. Thanks ! - Tom,N1

Very tasty and fresh and nutritious. The flavours were incredible, we will be ordering again. Our favourtites were the spring rolls, we will be ordering 2 portions next time. - Marie,N8

Exceptional meal, the Braised Beef was so tender it melted in my mouth! - Christian,N19

Absolutely delicious!! Best delivery I've had in memory!! - Kate,N5

This was a great meal. I especially loved the free slab of brownie which was slipped in there. I suspect it's a lot like crack. I'm just going to have to keep coming back for more of that. So good. Once more Housebites saves me from too much work, too little time, takeaway hell. Thank you. - Steve,N4

Fantastic food from Fabio! Highlights were the exquisite potstickers, spring rolls, and the yummy brownie. The panko chicken was lovely and crispy as well as tender and went really well with the asian coleslaw. My only minor comment would be that the latter dish could maybe have benefited from a condiment or sauce of some sort on theside but on the whole I was very impressed with the quality of cooking and I will definitely be ordering again! - Nicola,N4

The rib of beef was melt in your mouth amazing, the kind of food you welcome winter for. The chicken was tasty, well seasoned and with the asian slaw, it was really tasty. The brownie and cheesecake were really good too. I loved that a lot of care and attention went in to each dish, it was very much appreciated. - Melanie,N16

Beef was delicious, lovely creamy mash and everything else was as good. Looking forward to ordering again - Liane,E5

Albeit we waited 35 minutes over our delivery time, but the food arrived, not piping hot, but still hot! When I called about the tardiness of the food the staff answered after one ring and were very diligent, helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and we will most definitely be ordering again. It was a of a high standard, compliments to the chef. - STUART,N7

Absolutely delicious--thank you! - Valerie,N1

Very nice - Robert,N7

Terrific flavours, as usual! The chicken was tender and the satay sauce appropriately peanutty. Have kept one of the amazing arancini for today's lunch. - Lynn,NW5
Stars
Absolute delicious as always!!! - Carla,N7

Cheers Fabio, best takeaway Iv for a long time - Laurie,N16

Really fresh tasting food well executed. Fabio was kind enough to call to say that he was running a bit behind time and was very apologetic when he delivered the food, which was appreciated. Only (hopefully constructice) criticism is that the arancini balls could be a lot smaller (or the menu should explain that they are very big). Three smaller balls for sharing would probably be better (although I wouldn't change the recipe which was delicious). Rob - Rob,N5

Really enjoyed it. Great portion! Loved the Arancini. Thanks Fabio. Will see you again soon. - soichi,N4

Arrived on time. Short rib was perfectly tender and the Chilli Prawn Arancini was delicious. Thank you. - Edward,N6
Stars
Arrived on time, nice and hot, beautifully cooked. - Andrew,N7

This was excellent food, especially the meat - which was just heavenly! The mash was really creamy and wonderful and went well with the spinach. Overall, a great dish. The roasted beetroot was good too but less exceptional than the other dish. Also loved the starter which was (for us) unusual but worked very well. A great experience overall and will certainly do again. - Barbara,N4
Stars
Both dishes were fantastic! We loved the cold spinach with the warm meats and mash. The wasabi dressing ont he spinach was also very yummy! Fantastic comfort food. - Trevor,N7
Stars
Nicely balanced flavours! Wasabi mash was delicious and didn't overpower the salmon at all. - gabby,N7
Stars
Fantastic meal, again! Fabio's food is amazing, the beef short rib was cooked to perfection, served with the lightest, tastiest mash I've ever had. Outstanding! - Douglas,N22
Stars
Heavenly food! The arancinis were sublime, the prawn and rice were perfectly cooked, the salads were refreshing, the salmon was juicy and cooked to perfection, the mash was creamy with a punch! The flavours, textures, and presentation of the food flew us to the moon. First time I've used Housebites, and Chef Bernadelle: we will definitely return! 10 out of 10. - Diana,N16

yummy! complimentary pudding too :D really enjoyed the meal :) - sophie,N7

Whole meal was fantastic, cheers Fabio! Certainly won't be the last time I order it. - Steve,N7
Stars
Awesome. Everything was incredible, up to the high standard we have come to expect from HB! My husband has gone so far as to describe the mash as "insane". - Valerie,N1
Stars
This is the second time my wife and I ordered from Fabio. Again the food was a very high standard and delivered on time. Braised short trip was cooked to absolute precision and tasted wonderful. I can’t recommend Fabio’s cooking often enough. - Peter,N8
Stars
excellent! - Bruno,N4
Stars
Vvery good. Would order again. - Catherine,N16
Stars
The dishes were of an extremely high standard, well prepared with evidently superior and fresh ingredients. The salmon was one of the best pieces of fish my wife and I had in very long time moist, tender and cooked to perfection. The beetroot and chickpeas dish was very fresh and exceptionally tasty. But If I had to put my money on one dish it would be the Chilli Prawn Arancini. This clearly was not a take away but a challenge to restaurants such as L'Anima or Locanda Locatelli. Highly recommend or better kept a secret!!! - Peter,N8
Stars
the pork kakuni was amazing! so tender and such amazing flavours. The lemon tart as per usual is a winner! - Ewan,N4
Stars
Absolutely delicious. Generous portion of beautifully cooked, responsibly-sourced food. Delivered perfectly on time - with a smile - and I even got a little extra pork and crackling thrown in. Thank you thank you, I'll be back! - Sally,N5

Chicken was great; risotto was delicately flavoured - and filling! However, I managed to make room for the amazing brownie: one of the best I've ever had. - Lynn,NW5

I am regularly on housebites and Ive tried fabios meals twice and both times were excellent. Definitely one of the best chefs on the site. - Christian,N19
Stars
The Massaman Duck Curry was amazing! Something I'd never tried before, a great Saturday dinner. I am now becoming quite addicted to the Lemon Tart. Once slice may not be enough next time. - Ewan,N4
Stars
Second order from Fabio, every bit as good as the first. All dishes were perfect, with generous portions and quality ingredients prepared with skill. Shouldn't really being telling you all this, I should be keeping it as my delicious little delivery secret. Ooops, too late. Can't wait to order again! - Douglas,N22
Stars
Delicious food delivered to our door - and a bonus popped in too. A treat for a lazy saturday night when we'd failed to do any useful shopping! - Alix,N8
Stars
Another tremendous meal from Fabio. Amazing flavours. First rate! - Lynn,NW5
Stars
Another lovely meal, great to have the chef himself come and deliver! Perfect amount of food as well. Also he left me a nice taste of dessert that I wouldn't normally have ordered. I'll be back x - katy,N6
Stars
Amazing food. The Vietnamese Summer Rolls were incredibly delicately flavoured with contrasting textures. Salmon Two Ways was also terrific, particularly on the fragrant jasmine rice. The lemon tart was the perfect balance between sharp and sweet. Another brillaint Housebites meal. - Lynn,NW5
Stars
What a fantastic meal! Everything was perfectly prepared, cooked and presented and the delivery was on time. Completely enjoyed every bite and will be ordering again from Fabio very soon. - Douglas,N22
Stars
Food was excellant and really enjoyed by everyone..pork belly and salmon patties were great. Unfortunately delivery was delayed but given Fabio apologised with a smile it's an overall good rather than very good which the food deserved! - James,N5
Stars
First time ordering from Fabio. The Vietnamese summer rolls were fresh and flavourful. The salmon, though, was unremarkable. Tasty enough, but nothing that I couldn't have made myself. - reen,N4
Stars
The pork belly was absolutely melt-in-the-mouth divine! All other aspects of the meal were delicious too. Will be trying some more of Fabio's food soon. - Greg,N16
Stars
Avsolutely brilliant. By far the best delivery meal we have ever had. The Summer Rolls were out of this world, really generous portions (huge prawns). The wedges and lemongrass ceam were utterly moorish and the mains were brilliant. Loved it. Thanks Fabio! - Ollie,N7
Stars
OMG Amazing. Perfect fusion food the slow cooked pork was divine. FANTASTIC THANKS FABIO :) - Tom,N5
Stars
Excellent food - the vietnamese rolls were delicious. - Ishbel,N4
Stars
We loved the salmon and the pork - the salmon was good quality and plenty of it, the pork was tender and delicious. The veg was well cooked and the spinach was so lovely we could have eaten a whole bowl of it. All in all, a great meal! - geoff,N4
Stars
Summer rolls and the pork belly were delicious and the portion size was great. Got a free portion of sweet potato wedges as well! I'd suggest a bit more sauce to go with the pork though. Other than that, delicious. - Lola,N15
