Really simple canteen type setup with really good homemade curries ranging from lamb to lentils. They also do fresh naans and fresh chilli if you like it spicy. Lunch times are busy with queues out of the door, once its gone its gone until the next day. Definitely worth doing at least once!

Ignore the location and the external appearance. Inside is a clean canteen experience and the food . . . really good and at a moderate price! Do yourself a favour and go - be prepared to queue - we joined a queue of 7 at 11.30. Spoke with a lady who had been eating here for the last 20 yrs... More

This is my favourite restaurant to visit for a quick lunch time meal out with colleagues. The decor is old, the location isn't particularly desirable, but the food is great and the price is even better. There's always a steady flow of people coming through the place and, after being recommended This & That by a colleague, I now recommend... More

This is more of a back-street café, so the décor is a little basic, but the food is great and really good value.

Looks a bit dubious due to location, but with a healthy queue and good feedback from friends - gave it a try and was glad I did! You get a plate and choose from a limited range of curries to get a quick, none greasy plate of food. Quick, cheap and tasty so can't fault it!

Worth a visit just for the experience. The location is distinctly unpromising, and the interior is rather like a works canteen, and not a particularly smart one at that. On the other hand the food is excellent and almost unbelievably cheap. It is easy to get 'ripped off' in Manchester, where many establishments seem to cater for people with more... More

From seeing where this restaurant is you wouldn't expect it to be nice, you would probably just walk past as it is hidden down a side street but if you ever come across it DO NOT walk past! By far the best curry I have ever tasted! The staff are really friendly and helpful. It's just good, home made curry.... More

My wife and I were planning to eat some Indian food during our Manchester weekend visit, but decided to walk a bit before dinner. While walking we saw this tiny little restaurant, and my wife said she remembered it from some review she had seen and it was supposed to be nice. We went in and each took three dishes... More

I really like here. There is not much going on in regards to decor but the food Is bang on. Rice and three curries for a 5er. You can't argue with that. It's busy everytime iv been there so in my eyes that speaks for itself. I work on a construction site close by and if we are struggling to... More
