We have eaten here several times now and they serve the best chilli panner I've ever had, very accommodating to change things to suit our own taste. We will definitely be returning.

2nd Visit here this year, still as great as ever. The service is excellent and our orders were taken quickly, it’s a fairly small restaurant but found it to be cozy too, it was nice to chat as it was not noisy like in a big restaurant. as it was late I managed to get a table straight away this...

I often pass here going into local bars and Tesco express and it’s always full so that did intrigue me as I love Curry. After the FA cup semifinal on Sunday afternoon it was only half full (only hey) so decided to get in there quick as the kids and adults were all hungry. The service is excellent and our... More

Went for a 6pm meal with a friend. Friendly and attentive service, but without a doubt the food was the highlight. I had Karahi Gosht with Naan. It was rich, fresh, tender and utterly delicious. I've had some good curries in Birmingham as a student and in Oxford where I live now, but this was the best. I will be... More

To me this is the best. Would rather come here than go to Rusholme!! very highly recommended. Very tasty and flavoursome food... I'm going again on Friday! Little family run place, very good service and decent prices. Now my kids have discovered it, they're in love too! Enjoy!

If you are a rugby club looking for a Madras competition then this isn't for you. The Third Eye serves interesting, well cooked food that is exquisitely spiced. If you want hot, they are happy to oblige but what they do best is good food. That's good for four stars, but friendly service and a different take on Indian beer... More

I've eaten in the restaurant three times and lost count of how many times I've ordered take away. The food here is delicious and a step up compared to your normal oily curries. The service is always really friendly and we always get a complimentary Cobra beer with our take aways which is a nice touch. The only time I've... More

Visitied here for a eat-in meal on Friday 5th December at 7pm with my Mum and Girlfriend. My girlfriend and I often order takeaway from here. Mainly because it’s close enough to our house to walk to but also because I really like the Madras and my girlfriend really likes the Dansak they do. However, one thing that I’ve noticed... More

The Nepali curry houses of South Manchester provide a great little enclave of better than average spicy food. It had been many years since I'd visited The Third Eye, but on a slow, slightly hungover Sunday, curry seemed like the way to go. The restaurant is snug and it's not the place to go if you are going to confide... More
