I visited here with two colleagues and have been a few times. It does serve very good food at a cheap price but the server was rude to my colleague for no particular reason which spoiled the visit. It has gone downhill a little bit recently. Would certainly recommend going if you want a cheap and cheerful curry. However, if... More

We love to go here, often. I tend to get the rice with 3 veggie curries at only £3.50, bargain! Great for lunchtime or after-work/pre-pub time, although we're often too full afterwards! There is no self control here.

The queues here confirm its popularity. Curries are good but not as tasty and we'll spiced as Kabana. They can also be lukewarm sometimes. Generally very good value but certainly not the place to impress a loved one!

Tucked away down an alley off Thomas St, this diner is nothing to look at but don't let that put you off. I'll make more of an effort to decipher the menu next time I go there. For my first visit I had an excellent rice and three, lamb off the bone was especially good. And all for a fiver.

This place was rated highly, so thought we would give it a go! What a mistake. Arrived to find this restaurant hidden down a back street which wasn't a problem. However, whilst queuing for our food the servers were heating the sauce up in big tubs in the micro and them mixing with chicken in the serving containers. Should have... More

We frequently eat out at this no-frills, hidden gem. Simple plastic chairs, delicious tasty food served in a basic but friendly self- service style restaurant. Ideal for a satisfying lunch stop which will barely dent the budget. Recommend.

We have enjoyed this restaurant for years. It has the best best food. You can also take away which we do for family gatherings. Nothing fancy about it, just good old fashioned home like cooking. Super delicious. Going back tomorrow for birthday lunch.

Rice and Three (A portion of rice and three different curries) all for £4.50, you cant really go wrong with it! Curry's are pretty good too and they always give a big portion. A little gem of a place hidden in Manchester's Northern Quarter!
