Starting to lose count of the number of times I've been here now, but thankfully the food is as good as always. Yes, the interior could be freshened up a little, but the friendliness of the staff and the great food more than make up for that.

One of the many visits to punjab tandoori and it is definitely the best indian restaurant in manchester. The staff are really friendly and authentic food. It tastes as good as the food you get in India. Would recommend paneer tikka, masala dosa, malai kofta, chicken handi, the list goes on. Currently writing this in the biggest food coma of life. The food is that good that you can't stop eating even when you are full. Looking forward to our next visit. Hi to Dharmender and crew.

I came here for my birthday meal, walked in at 10:30pm and this was not a problem. The food was fantastic. Really lovely depth of flavour and tasted genuine unlike a lot of curry houses! Knan was the best I have ever tried! The was very professional and attentive, the wait for food was 20 minutes, I think I would be worried if it was quicker than that!
The only downside was the restaurant décor and outside needs a bit of TLC but don't let this put you off!
The total bill came to under £30 for two of us inc. drinks so pretty reasonable. A must visit on the curry mile!

I stayed with family in Manchester and I love curry. We ordered chicken tikka biryani with a madras sauce. Lamb madras pillau rice.
I was going to go for the vindaloo but the manager put me off by saying it was too hot. The food was cooked fresh and it was very tasty. The vindaloo would have been to hot and the madras was just right.
We had two beers (cobra) waiting. The bill came to £27.50 which I thought was expensive? We had takeaway! !
You are spoilt for choice in Rusholme but I would go back because I believe that when you get a good curry there's no point in trying to change. The decoration needs updating in the restaurant. But you cannot go wrong if you don't mind paying a bit extra. ENJOY! !

Went here for the first time, after a recommendation from a colleague.
If I wasn't looking for it, I never would have chosen it based on the shop front, but went in anyway.

We shared the mixed grill starter which was delicious.
We both had curries, both were gorgeous!

Service was friendly and efficient, we were given perfect amount of time between courses too.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody!
