Tucked away in a little side street of Thomas St. in Manchester's NQ "This & That" is a great find at lunch time providing cafeteria style tasty curries for around the £5 mark and here you are having rice and three different curries from a good choice of chicken, lamb and vegetable varieties. Add onions and coriander and help yourself... More

Mmmmmm This and That, very tasty and splendid value. Food is served very quick and plentiful, could be a little better if the food was hotter but still very tasty and good value. Try it and see you won't be disappointed !!!!!

Rice and 3! The patron kindly obliges by laying a bed of rice upon your plate and spooning over 3 curries of your choice. Add a little extra chopped green chilli and coriander, grab a free pitcher of water, sit yourself down and enjoy. Leave stuffed with a smile on your face and a wallet lighter by only 4 quid.... More

I am an Indian and I loved what This & That offers. It's really like home-made Indian food albeit a with a bit more oil. But that's ok for a canteen. Yes, it's not a typical restaurant. It's a canteen. But rice and three curry is really cheap and portion is very generous. If you want ambience of a restaurant... More

Forget the surroundings, in fact don't because this adds to the character of the place. Don't expect matching crockery or cutlery but do expect good quality, tasty curry at exceptional value! Been a number of times over the years and love it and I'm yet to be disappointed. Plenty of choice for everyone, even children - mine love it!

This Manchester institution is no looker - tucked down a side street, the decor has seen better days. But don't let that stop you from going in - I'm glad I did. Numerous dishes served up, canteen style. For under a fiver I had a perfect plate of rice, dal, beef & spinach and keema matar. Great for cheap eats... More

This is the place for a good cheap meal, the food is good and for a fiver you get a nice curry and nan and a drink, they give you a free jug of ice cold water which is what I think more cafe's/restaurants should do. The staff are also nice and friendly.

Fairly standard rice n 3. Food lacks punch. I found it bland and busy. Curries watery in consistency may suit a certain palate. Nice service however
