This place is awesome.A greasy spoon curry house on a back street in the Northern Quarter. Rice and 3 portions of curry for a few quid. Like it says in the name. A bit of this and a bit of that please. This place is legendary

Finally made it to This & That during opening hours and was pleasantly surprised Had the lamb curry, chicken curry and daal and a roti. The lamb and chicken were great and there was a lot of it. The daal was tasty but a little smooth for my liking. One of my best rice & three places in Manchester

The original and best lunchtime spice cafe in Manchester city centre. Located on the wonderfully ironic Soap Street and originally founded to serve the local rag trade lunchtime crowd. It now serves rice and three to anyone from pinstripe suits to shell suits. This place is a real leveller, excellent value for money, and very very friendly. The menu changes... More

Not hygienic at all. Portion size is good for the price but not sure about the food quality. All the curry dishes are left open on the counter from where they serve. Also the cutlery and plates did not look clean enough.

This is not the kind of place you want to be at on your first date, but for some reason if you did end up here, your date might be very impressed. This and That is hidden in a little side street in the Northerrn Quarter that boasts a lot of eateries and drinkeries (if there's such a word). It's... More

If you don't actively search this place out you'll never come across it by accident. As long as you don't mind plastic chairs and tables which are fixed to the floor then you will love this place. On arrival you are presented with a large plate of rice and invited to choose three curries from the 8 or 9 on... More

It was not a fancy restaurant, but the quality of food was not too bad. With around 4 pounds, I was very full. The staffs were also friendly.

Lived in Manchester 20 years always heard about this place but somehow never got round to going. I missed out. Truly was a melt in the mouth curry experience. Exceeded every expectation. Can't wait to go back again.

Sat in This & That right now. Two curries, rice, onion bhaji, 2 chapatti & a can of Coke £7. What more could a person ask for? Been coming here for over 20 years & it never disappoints. Great food, friendly service & fantastic grub.
