Utterly bitterly Delicious

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.

we go at least 3 times a month to the Kabana where the food and atmosphere are consistently wonderful. However the best think are the very low prices without compromising on the quality of the food.

I have been to all of the cheap rice and three places in and around the Northern Quarter and this has got to be one of the best. A great selection of curry for you to choose from and a generous serving of rice all for £5.50. Very informal dining and instant service. Good honest food and a curry cafe... More

Three curries and rice plus chapatti, around £6. Authentic excellent food, and what a bargain. Service very quick. I will definitely call again if I'm visiting Manchester
