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

If it's quick, cheap and tasty that you want then this is the place to go in Manchester. For under £5 you can sample three currys with rice and the menu alters over the week. It's basic but hits the spot.

Cheap, cheerful and no frills. Perfect for curry buffs, travellers and those on a budget. It's a regular pit stop for us after Saturday shopping.

This place was recommended recently. It took a little finding, but was certainly worth it. Absolutely basic surroundings (reminiscent of a 1970's works canteen!) but the food was amazing and the service was nearly as warm as the curry. I'll be back!
