I popped in here on the round trip to Manchester dropping off daughter at Uni. Long journey up delayed by traffic and called in without a booking. Recommended by a couple who said it was their first visit and that curry was very good. Our first ( but hopefully not) last visit. Poppadoms, mixed starter and King prawn jalfrezi that... More

Visited this little family run business twice in the past week and couldn't fault it on either occasion. Staff are very nice and homely, making time to chat to each customer and actually recognised us on the second occasion. Food was superb, portions generous and it is very reasonably priced. A definite must if you are in Didsbury. We look... More

Really pleased, staff were very pleasant, atentative, catered for all our needs. Food was excellent . Not over priced, very good quality. Would definitely recommend it. Will be returning.

A pleasant family-run restaurant, we visited as a group of 6. Prices are very reasonable mid-range and there is a good range of reasonably priced wine. We had popadoms with chutneys to start. I am someone that goes for mild curry flavours, but all the chutneys, including the onions, were far too hot for me (although not for my companions).... More

We have been coming to the Third Eye regularly for years, which says it all - our go-to restaurant for a curry. The Third Eye serves great Nepalese food - we have many favourite dishes, so it's always good to go in a group so you can try a variety - if everyone's up for sharing! The staff are lovely... More

I have been on this restaurant many times. I used to have take away orders in past. The food of this restaurant is always great. The staffs of this restaurant are friendly. It is nice restaurant for those who like to try Indian & Nepalese foods in Didsbury area.

Booked this early as we know it always fills up quick. Arrived dead on 8 and it was very busy. We were seated promptly and as soon as we'd ordered drinks they were there and not long after the food. I love this place I've been coming here for 14 years about twice a year only because we now live... More

This is one of the best small curry houses in south Manchester. I visited with a close friend who knows the owners. We were well looked after. The service is quick and the food is really good. The Makhan Chara curry I had was super. If you like a curry with a nice sauce that is more on the sweet... More
