come here with a couple of friends for a quick lunchtime get together. Food was very tasty and spiced very well meat just melts in the mouth. The men who served us could of been a bit more polite, but over all a good place to catch up with friends and your not breaking the bank.

I come here pretty much every Tuesday for rice and three. Two meat, one veg curry with rice comes to £5.50. Basic surroundings but from the queues, you can always see how popular this place is with the lunch crowd. Cheap but extremely tasty food.

Went here as a budget option and also with reports that it was 'an experience'. It was both. Food was basic and tasty. Rice and 3 veg is about £3.90. Samosas and naan, Roti are also available as well as meat dishes. Seating is bench/large table style and so you might be bumping elbows with people. It's all fun, clean,... More

A tucked away place in the Northern Quarter which offers different menu selections each day. The three meat curries and rice is amazing value for money and you can get an onion Bhaji or naan bread as well. Go with a big appetite because this will fil you up for the day. The staff and owners are really friendly too.

You will not just happen across this and that. It is on the edge of the northern Quarter and just behind the blue pig pub and is definitely worth seeking out. We have been using it for over 30 years now and it never disappoints. I take people there for the first time on many occasions and every single one... More

We found This and That about 12 months ago and cannot recommend this place highly enough. We love this traditional canteen style eatery and get withdrawals if we go more than a fortnight without a trip. The staff are lovely - a real family vibe and the food is second to none. I call it my happy place as whatever... More

My mate Dan brought me to This and That for his leaving meal and it was excellent and very well priced. If carlsberg did curry canteens then this would be it. I've known about this place for years and so glad to have finally tried it. The staff were also super friendly and helpful. Give it a try, you'll love... More
