Splendid food from a WLL oiled machine

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal on a busy Saturday night. We had booked otherwise I doubt we would have got in. My 1st impression was that it was modern, very well organised and highly staffed. We sat almost immediately in front of the charcoal grill with the open kitchen behind. They must have had... read more

Miles ahead of anywhere else on the curry mile. Authentic dishes which are well cooked. Shared a curry and a mixed grill for main which were both delicious plus several small starters to share. Cocktails are also very good. Service was a bit off and the meal felt a bit rushed which was annoying.

Can't fault the food, service or value. My railway lamb was melt in the mouth, everybody in our group cleared their plates, even the 'my first curry' off the children's menu tasted better than a lot of curries from some curry houses. Our waiting staff were all very nice and then the bill less than £80 for four adults and... More

Best food by FAR on the curry mile. The biryani was amazing, have had it a few times now and seems to keep getting better, unlike most of the other restaurants on the curry mile, we found the food wasn't too heavy and full of MSG. Lovely friendly service, an all round great find.

Best restaurant in Rusholme, hands down. We live here, we've tried them all. Some are good, this one is great. It's different to all the other places, not merely because it's more modern and trendy in style, but it brews it's own beer, and the menu is unlike anything else on the curry mile. Real desi food, with chefs that... More

Went here with friends the other night. I'm not a fan of spicy food so I ordered something mild which was very tasty. The gunpowder fries were delicious, although a little bit spicy for me!

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Manchester I have visited. We were a table of three, seated quickly. Every server had a smile on their face. The food arrived quickly within 15 minutes and they had just opened. It's hidden amongst most of the shops it really is a hidden gem. The ambience is lovely and... More
