“Tasty food, with a minor disaster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Pros:
- Extremely tasty Punjabi food
- Clean, modern decor (see below for exception!)
- Good quality ingredients and meat
- MASSIVE "family" naan breads that you can share between a table
- Friendly staff

Cons
- Slow service (we went on a Saturday night, to be fair)
- Something AWFUL happened on our visit. While eating, we heard a "splat" noise and looked over to see what appeared to be vomit land next to a neighbours table. Looking up, it became clear that someone had puked over the stairwell and it had landed on their table. Cue disgust and panic by the diners affected and staff - it put me off the rest of my food too. I wouldn't blame the restaurant for this, and it wouldn't affect my return, but it certainly affected our evening.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Myself my wife and 2 teenage girls ate in the Princess Street restaurant on Thursday night, all in all it wasa wonderful experience. From the poppadoms and the myriad of sauces to accompany them to the wonderful main courses everything was perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive and our water jug was not left empty on the table for more than 10 secs. The food was of a really high quality and we left feeling very satisfied after a superb experience. This is the first place we will come back to next time we are in Manchester

“Good punjabi food and great customer care”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant on sunday with our friends, we were 3 families with toddlers. The staff was very courteous and caring. They took good care of the kids requirements. The food was tasty and it was nice to have good punjabi food as there are not many punjabi restaurants in north. The decor is gorgeous and very spacious and clean restaurant.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

“Great for occasions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

My boyfriend and I always visit this restaurant on special occasions. Food is delicious, atmosphere and decor is great! Best Indian in the North West! Prices are slightly higher than normal, but worth it. Place is always packed, but we have never had a long wait for a table. Make sure you try the family size naan bread!
