“Very very good”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Really nice food cooked with obvious care and attention. Waiters were a little jumpy when we visited last October, but it really did nothing to detract from a fantastic meal and a warm vibrant atmosphere.
We went to the one on Portland street and I wouldn't hesitate to go again. I am always on the look out for a good curry and long ago gave up on Manchester's curry mile.
This is really good and not pricey at all. Restaurant itself is very ambient, clean and inviting too

“Swadesh restaurant”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It looked splendid, but the food wasn't anything to write home about. It was all perfectly OK, but a bit disappointing. The best thing was the poppadums - they were excellent. The service started pretty slowly, though speeded up once they got going.

“Excellent service and ambience”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I had an excellent meal at this restaurant on the 15th February 2013 when on a short business trip to Manchester. The service was very good and the menu impressive: I enjoyed the emphasis on Punjabi cooking, which is less well-known in the Uk than its Bengali rival, but just as delicious, with subtle flavours.

There was great value for money, generous servings and a good ambience, too. Highly recommended.

“The BEST Indian restaurant. Fabulous Food!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Wow. Just at the edge of China Town in Manchester is this wonderful restaurant.Beautiful and clean and very friendly staff. They offer a lunch buffet which has the freshest, finest food I have eaten at any Indian restaurant. The food is exceptional and incredibly tasty and all for a ludicrously low £6.90!
I'm happy to drive an hour to eat here - it's that good. High quality food.
If you are in Manchester - you must try this place.

“Fantastic food and value.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We visited the restaurant on Sunday 10th Feb as we had come into Manchester to see the Chinese New Year celebrations and for a family birthday meal.
Having read reviews on the restaurant I can now see why it has done so well.
The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful, the food was delicious with the heat being exactly as described.
We plumped for the happy hour deal of 3 courses for £10:90 plus a child meal and could not have been happier with the value for money.
They also served one of the best garlic naans I have ever tasted.
A great restaurant in a super location with brilliant food ... can't wait to eat there again.
