Service is generally poor and entitled. Very cramped settings and feels cramped and suffocating. Food is also sub standard and average at best compared to the many curry houses in Manchester. Over priced due to the area and not really a true Asian experience. A watered down at best

I have walked past so many times but usually curry is not my first choice when eating out. However my partner and I went here for the first time last week and have already been back a second time! The restaurant is quite small, but plenty of tables for two and space for large parties. The poppadoms are delicious, as... More

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
