“Lovely meal recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We visited the Swadesh Indian restaurant during a weekend stay in Manchester. I found this restaurant on Tripadviser just a couple of hours before our visit and rang to book but this was not necessary as it is a larger restaurant.

This is a lovely restaurant, the décor is modern and provides a relaxing atmosphere. The service was very good, attentive but not intrusive, we were asked if we wanted to delay our course; we had no qualms about paying the automatic service charge.

The food was really good and nicely presented though we ordered to much. We started with the vegetable sharing platter, then I had butter chicken with saffron rice and my DH had the lamb special with saffron rice. We also had a naan each, one would have been enough. We had a bottle of the shiraz house red, perfect with the meal. We finished by sharing an pistachio Indian ice cream.

A lovely meal and inexpensive for the generous portions and quality of the food. Highly recommended.

“Great food again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Great food and service again this was about the 8th we have been to Swadesh foods spot on each time service is good it's the only one thing you need to look out for is the service change on the bill so don't tip at the table

“Tasty food, attentive staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Can't fault the attitude of the waiter who welcomed us 'Everything: yes' he said! The food was tasty, served promptly and enjoyable, waiting staff attentive but not intrusive. We found the prices higher than our local Indian restaurant in west London, but the surroundings are very nice. We opted not to pay the cheeky service charge, instead leaving a cash tip.

“wont rush back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

my partner and I went here, as we love indian food, to start with the wine we ordered was out of stock, so we opted for another, it took the staff ages to come and take our order, my starters wasn't bad, it wasn't the warmest, sheek kebab, my partner had chicken pakora, they asked us if wanted a few minutes between courses, and we did as we like to have a break, you have to pay for everything separate, ie the rice isn't included with ur main meal, the bill wasn't bad, we didn't leave a tip as I have the belief that a tip should be given when the service is second to none.
