Reviews

A beautiful book: compellingly written, tender and thoughtful. It shines a light onto a part of our food culture that's beloved and yet often undervalued . . . I loved it -- Ruby Tandoh, bestselling author of Eat Up! and Cook as You Are
I read Takeaway in one sitting. Angela's writing is so relatable. Chinese takeaways can't taste the same again when you know how much love, sacrifice and soul families have put into each dish -- Elaine Chong, journalist and presenter
This is the type of book that I would buy for friends on repeat, safe in the knowledge that they too would love it -- Ravneet Gill, author of The Pastry Chef's Guide
Takeaway is a wonder: a warm, incandescent memoir about identity, food, family, relationships. It's so affecting I read it with a lump in my throat -- Annie Lord, author of Notes on Heartbreak
A rare, precious insight into the lives of those behind the takeaways that were so integral to local communities around the UK yet often remained on the periphery . . . a brilliant book that offers a unique perspective on something familiar to so many -- Melissa Thompson, award-winning food writer and columnist for BBC Good Food

This book deeply touched my heart as well as my taste buds! A visceral memoir like no other! So grateful for its existence! -- Naomi Shimada, author of Mixed Feelings
An un-put-down-able account of coming of age - and coming of identity. Hui's narration is quirky, funny and often poignant. -- Jenny Lau, founder of Celestial Peach
I loved it and found it very moving, both as a memoir, a thriller, and the villain origin story of Britain's most exciting young food writer -- Jonathan Nunn, Editor of Vittles
Takeaway feels like coming home. It is a testament to the resilience of Chinese families and a tender reminder to cherish the many ways love is shown.-- Tori West, author of It's Not Just You
