"rice and three"

Great little lunch spot, good selection of curry's on a bed of rice. Food was good, service fast, is basic interior plastic seats but clean has a trucker cafe feel to it. Bargain at £5.50 well recommended for a lunch, maybe not a first date!

We frequent this curry house probably once a fortnight as a treat for lunch at work. It's a hidden gem, and well worth a visit. What you won't get is neatly set tables, A comfy restaurant, table service or any other 'restaurant' usuals. What you will get is a queue out of the door. A selection of stunning curries, and...

Its a small cafe sort of restaurant, hidden away in northern quarter, but when you find the place you will not be disappointed. Curry here taste different to other Asian restaurants. You can mix and match the curry dishes, cheap price. I just cant explain how tasty it is, you just need to get down here and try for yourself.... More

Have been visiting this place quite often for noon lunch. Freshly cooked food. I liked spinach and mixed veg curries. It was simple and tasty. Freshly prepared Roti's are must try. Was bit disappointed with Lamb tikka and even chicken tikka. But rice and three curries. Delicious

I have been visiting the Kabana for about twenty years since the time when half a dozen Indian cafes were the only eateries in what is now called the Northern Quarter. It is an informal self-service cafe with a choice of daily specials. Despite the growth of many other food outlets in the locality it remains busy with high quality... More

I am a big fan of Indian food and I must say I would eat here a lot if I lived in Manchester. The decor and atmosphere may be simple but the quality of the food makes up for it. If you are looking for great indian food at very reasonable prices for a casual occasion or meal, this is... More

This place has been going for many years but the standard of service and quality of food has not dropped. Simple food cooked with quality ingredients. great value for money. Always busy. I would certainly recommend their fish masala.
