My first visit hear while it's not as good as Kabana it was at least open on a Saturday afternoon, I'll be returning soon because the food was lush and everything about it was great.

What more can I say which hasn't already been exposed in many of the excellent reviews here - apart from the fact that this little restaurant is very addictive! It's a jewel and I congratulate the owners in providing such exquisite cuisine.

Possibly the most legendary curry house in Manchester, head here for authentic curry dishes where you can actually taste the ingredients. Pick of the crop is the chicken karahi with rice and fresh naan bread.

Been here a couple of times and reviewed once already. I've reviewed for a second time because it was great once again. I had an onion bhaji starter, lamb karahi curry, garlic naan bread and a can of coke for £8.80. The lamb was fork tender and delicious.

I come to Al Faisal quite frequently and have someone being disappointed. This latest visit wasn't as good as usual though and I may shop around for another similar place after this. It was a busy-ish Sunday afternoon when I called in and had three curries with chapatis. The lamb Karai was very fatty and the chickpeas just a little... More

I am a self confirmed addict here and many a hangover has been put to bed by a huge bowl of channa or dahl or sag aloo. This time it was the former and the latter, piled high with a mound of rice and a light, fluffy naan. Service was a tiny bit slower than usual but I will be... More

Never changed in 20 years, still green plastic chairs attached to tables... Basically very basic, and the food is genuine street Bangla-Manc food; good quality YES- good value YES - good service YES as long as you don't set your expectations to high unpretentious and good
