Still the best by a country mile. We eat here regularly with friends who live and work around the world, and when we have a get together for a few beers, we make sure we end up at the Desi Lounge. Shokat and his wife and staff are simply the best hosts you can find, and the food does not... More

We decided to get a takeaway from here rather than eat in the restaurant. When my partner came home with the food we were really surprised at the portion size, both dishes were tiny, at best child size. My prawn makhani was so watery it was like soup, there was one tiny hint of a leaf of some sort, but... More

Been here a few times now as we are local but it never fails to disappoint. The food is sublime, far better than I have found anywhere else in Manchester or even the UK for that matter. The owner is particularly friendly, always sparking conversation/playing with my daughter but never intrudes. This actually applies to all members of staff, not... More

Although we usually eat in with family and friends tonight we phoned for a take-away. This is by far one of the best restaurant in town. So would always be one of my first choices. On collecting our take-away we were greeted like old friends by the Manager and Waiter. Shared a couple of minutes of friendly chat, paid for... More

The service was marvelous and so friendly. The staff are familiar with all the dishes and offer good... More
