“Great food - Great Prices!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I often come here when in Manchester, however I note that the new signage outside states 'Ali Faisal's' for some reason! Nevertheless, it's the same staff and owner and the same good, Homestyle Asian food as always.

There are a selection of curries and naan breads e.t.c and the decor is basic, functional and unpretentious. It's a great place to visit for a snack when in town and I can't recommend it enough.

Plus, I like that fact that like 99% of other venues, they don't inexplicably masquerade as an 'Indian' and are proud to refer to themselves as a 'Pakistani restaurant'.

I put an average for service and atmosphere as you take your own plate to the table and get your own knife and fork. If you want 'service' and not authentic, cheap food in a basic setting then you need to go elsewhere! But yes, the staff are polite enough!

“Great food vs price”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

First it makes you smile because you found it, then because of the simple interior and finally because of the great Indian food they serve.

Don't expect a chic restaurant.. go there for the great food and friendly people.

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Couldn't be faulted. Got the most important bit right, which was the food. Plastic chairs, plastic water jug but some of the best kebabs, samosa's, Nann bread and curries in the UK - not to be missed
