Can't really argue with the food or prices and it's fine if you don't mind it's scruffy appearance. The staff are nice and pleasant. I had rice (lots) chicken curry which was very pleasant without the heat, cabbage which was gorgeous even if it doesn't sound right and lentil daal with a vegetable samosa and overall it compares with more...

I usually advocate some situational perspective in reviews - I think a takeaway should be able to get a 5 for doing its job just as a nice restaurant should for doing its own. This & That confused me a little. There's no denying it's popular, and rightly so. It's cheap, it's quick and the food is plentiful. The problem... More

I was first introduced to this & that in 2000 by my late father, Iv been going every since. It's confidently a no frills approach but be assured, there isn't a better or more authentic Indian in Manchester, great value too.

Living in Manchester and thought why not give it a try after hearing a lot about it, don't let the location deter you, thoroughly enjoyed the curry as did my partner I had lamb steak, chicken and daal. The employees are really lovely and assisted us as we hadn't been before, all 3 men were extremely polite and didn't hesitate... More

This is one of Manchester's hidden gems. Do not let the scruffy appearance of Soap Street put you off, This and That delivers wonderful curries at affordable prices in a friendly setting. A rice and three for lunch is £4.50 and each day they have different offerings. I was sat opposite a customer who told me he likes to go... More

We had "rice and three" for lunch - portions are huge! Generous helping of rice with three curries (from a selection of about 7). Two huge plates of rice , a naan (freshly made) and a can of coke came to just over £10 and neither of us could finish our meals. You queue up canteen style then sit at... More
