“Fur coat, no knickers...”
Reviewed February 5, 2011

Very good service, excellent presentation and swish interior. Unfortunately the food was a total let down. My partner and I went here on Friday, 04.02.11 and both f us agreed it was the worst Indian meal we have ever tasted. The chicken korma was bland and I believe, plain chicken pieces covered in a sauce from a jar. The special lamb dish was supposed to be "medium" but it was very hot (and I like spicy food). We ordered pilau rice but it was anything but this - again bland and boring, as was the Bombay potato. We did complain when asked what we thought of the meal and the service charge was taken off so they did listen. However, I would not recommend dinner there if you are looking for authentic Indian food.

“Not a great buffet”
Reviewed December 29, 2010

We went to Swadesh's lunch buffet in attempt to find a good Indian buffet. There was variety, but nothing was amazing. Most of the food was good, but we've decided we wouldn't do the buffet again. We may try again for an evening meal, but never the buffet.

“Service and Quality in central manchester”
Reviewed October 12, 2010

Late on a recent Saturday night popped in here. Wow, you can see into the kitchen, dining area modern and fresh. Lamb was excellent. Buffet looks like it would be well worth a visit. Not the cheapest, but certainly worth it. They have free parking if you are visiting, ring them to check.

“Great food, good service - central location”
Reviewed September 20, 2010

I asked a Mancunian friend for a good Indian restaurant for a Saturday night- I wasnt disappointed! The menu was extensive and well thought-out, service was prompt and very friendly. A liitle on the pricey side, but the quality of the food and the good attentive service was well worth it. Well done Swadesh. Would highly recommend.
