    It's my birthday, I think I'm going to have chinese takeaway for my birthday tea. Is there a good guide to the averages points, what to have, what to avoid?

    The "few take away PP" sticky at the top of this section has a few chinese PP on the first page.

    In general;
    rice is quite high, you're best going for noodles if possible, dishes like chow mein are lowest in PP

    avoid anything in batter/deep fried

    soups are pretty good value

    hope that helps :)

    Thank you, I love chow mein so that helps. I think it might be chow mein & chicken & sweetcorn soup, yum. Washed down with lots of pimms, whoop.

    My tip is, ask for all sauces on the side. I like to order a beef or chicken dish with vegetables and just add a small portion of steamed rice and the sauce as I go.
    Happy Birthday and have a great time!
