A hidden gem!

In a hidden back street of Manchester's Northern Quater, this certainly is a little hidden gem, home cooked Asian food at it's best.

Don't be put off by the appearance. Tasty curries & the onion bhaji's are fab. The place was verey busy but we were served very quickly. Not a place to go if you want a romantic meal but the quality is very good & cheap too.

Looks a bit rough from the outside but don't be put off. Cheap, tasty curries. Very reasonable prices. It's not the place for a romantic meal but if you want a good curry at a good price this is the place. Always busy, which is a good sign and means a constant turnover of food. More of a cafe than...

Situated in the back streets of the Northern Quarter, this is the cheap eats curry place to head too. My Bro introduced me to the place about 10 years ago and I've loved it ever since. Does what it says on the tin. Apart from the wafts of gorgeous smells pumped out in to the alley way by the kitchen... More

It's a little place more like a canteen. Every day is different menu. And it's ready to eat- no need to wait until it's being cooked. Chicken curry with rice and vegetables was only 4.20! And free water to go with it. Very cheap and tasty.

This a fantastic 'in and out' place for all curry lovers, it's definitely NOT for the kind of people that want to sit people watching in a pretentious overpriced place, but this adds to the charm of This And That. Me and the wife did a bit of Christmas shopping mid- December, and we needed somewhere quick before we picked... More

What a find!! This restaurant is located in a tiny back street in the Northern Quarter. It's very basic. Food is served at a counter on melamine plates. We had 3 vegetarian dishes with rice and a chapati for £4.00 each!! Our party of 4 unanimously agreed that the food was delicious. You can add onions and chillis to spice... More

I'd heard a lot about This & That cafe and had been meaning to try the food for ages. It's hidden away in the alley way in between Trof and bar 21 on Thomas street. The rice and three is great value for money and seriously tasty. I always like to go for a veg curry but on this occasion... More
