You will struggle to find a better Indian restaurant in South Manchester friendly staff and excellent service, Reasonable prices offer the unbeatable and great value £10.95 7 course meal every Sunday and food is always spot on never had a bad meal yet only small critisim is they don't offer a delivery service :)

Fantastic food, lovely atmosphere, great value for money. Love it so much we've been 3 times in the last month, and also had takeaway! Amin and the staff are lovely, nothing is too much trouble. Don't think there is anything else to add! A⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've been coming to Essence for a few years now, the staff couldn't be friendlier and more courteous, and with the recent refit the decor is finally up to the very high standard of the food. It's great to have a local Indian restaurant that serves dishes away from the usual norm of Indian restaurants in the UK. There's always something I really want to eat that I've not tried for a long time, and I can have meals which remind me of family cooked meals, perfect.
