Went in quite early (6 ish) but service was still good (just hate it when there's no customers and you don't get served).
I don't eat a lot so ordered a lamb curry with cheese nan. The curry size was enormous and the nan thoughtfully quartered.
Lamb hardly had any fat on it (I requested this) and tasted fantastic. Price with one lager was £20 inc tip. Would recommend this restaurant

Food is good and at reasonable prices but the service is bad, the waiters are really rude and not friendly.

Swadesh on Portland Street is a great place to dine. The service is friendly and attentive; the food is superb (you can request milder or hotter dishes simply by mentioning this to the staff); and the price is reasonable, particularly if you take the happy hour menu. In addition, the restaurant is well placed for central manchester, serves proper Kingfisher beer, and is very clean. Don't listen to grumpy reviews, try it for yourself.

Looks good from the outside but service was poor from the start. We were pointed toward some seats and neither given a menu nor offered a drink. Our table was next to a loud and rowdy party so we had to shout in order to talk. We had a long wait for our starter, being served after others who had ordered later than us. We had just started eating when our main courses arrived. All our dishes were at the hot end of the spectrum and the heat was at the expense of taste. Dishes were also very salty. On the plus side the white wine was good.
There was a 10% service charge included in the bill that was certainly not deserved. Definitely overpriced for what we received. Wont be going back and wouldn't recommend.
