After reading reviews we thought we would try it.

Before going to the MEN we wanted to go for food but did not want to walk very far. So 0.3 miles away was this little place. Yes it was very much like a small school dinner hall with plastic plates and cutlery in the plastic trays. But the food was very fresh and served with very helpful staff... read more

East here about twice a week as I work nearby. Don'y be put off by the back alley setting or the basic decor as this is tastier more authentic curry than most restaurants. It tastes fresh because they make up around 8 dishes freshly each day and you pick 3 scoops + rice which costs £4 (all veggie) to £5.50... More

Went with a friend to eat on Friday evening before heading out for the night, we arrived at about 7:15 so not too long before they close at 8. It's down a dodgy looking alley and the decor is that of a rather shabby cafe but it is all very clean inside. The food is served from metal tins, sundries... More

We originally planned to visit nearby TROF on Easter Saturday but ended up stumbling upon This & That purely by accident. Tucked down an alleyway with discreet signage, this little eatery is easy to miss from the bustling main street, but definitely worth looking out for. The interior is clean, with a very simple, no frills feel. Great for refuelling... More

This and That is a great curry place and I would recommend it for lunch. 3 plus rice is what I regularly have and I have never been disappointed with the food. You can judge a place by the rice and it’s super here. They also make great dhal. My favourite meat is lamb and the Lamb and Spinach is... More

I have been going to This and That for over 20 years and it that time it has consistently offered what I believe is authentic home style Asian food. The rice and three option is perfect - the dishes are not running with gee as you can get in some up market restaurants and is of a consistently high standard.... More

I have visited here many times before, my first time must be about a decade or so ago! It is located down a back street in Manchester and unless you knew what you were looking for you really wouldn't even notice it was there! The decor inside is very dated and as so many other reviewers have commented is very... More
