    We don't have takeaways (me and the wife) but go out for tea once a week, usually £35-50 a week.

    Don't spend on takeaways every week, but over an entire month anything up to £80.

    I am steering clear of them but probably 20-50 a month in the past unless I was saving up for something, 6 months of that and I can buy something nice for my PC.

    £150-200 a month. A Chinese/curry will cost £30 odd for two adults.

    Tend to get one twice a week. £100 per month?

    I do offset by eating healthy the rest of the week. Yeah it ain't perfect and I do need to reign it in. Cost offset at the moment as normal socialising is all on hold, so got to find a way to treat myself. The plan once I have my kitchen sorted (currently in the process of redecoration) to cut back. Have a Chinese with Duck and budget gets blown out of the water, Duck Pancakes. :o

    One Indian a month on average probably, and it's a nice one so probably £30 for two of us. So about £7.50 a week.

    Went through a phase of having one once a week, which was an absolutely fantastic time to be me. However gf has convinced me that the cost of weekly takeaways is too high really, and we should try eat more healthily, which reluctantly I agree is true.

    A lot more because of the pandemic. I get a take out once or twice a month. Either a nice burger meal for 2 for £30ish, or Ethopian, Chinese, Curry for £30, but Uber and Deliveroo offer a lot of discounts.

    Zero. Me or the missus will do a an indian, chinese, thai, mexican or pizzas etc of some description or another once or maybe twice a week, by following one of the many thousands of recipes on the net. We've had so many that we only keep the great but not fiddly ones bookmarked.

    Before lockdown, maybe £10 every 2 weeks.
    During lockdown, about triple that.

    Probably about 50-60 a month. Once every other week.

    its impossible to make better curry, indian, shish/kofte kebab / pizza at home - nothing comes close to dominos and thar garlic & herb dip.
