Indian Restaurants in Manchester
1. Bundobust Indian restaurant in Manchester 61 Piccadilly - M1
“Terrific vegetarian Indian street food” specialist that “wears its shabby-chic location with style” – it’s also “great value”, and the craft beer “isn’t too bad, either”. “Don’t be put off by the service rating as it’s largely self-service – which is part of its charm”. The hit formula has led to branches in Leeds and Liverpool, and most recently a cavernous brewery-restaurant across town in Oxford Street. It’s the “best casual dining space for a single diner” while also catering well for groups through its (almost) everything-on-the-menu-for-£100 deal, that should feed 6.
2. Indique Indian restaurant in Manchester 110-112 Burton Road - M20
A plush curry house in posh West Didsbury that’s both ‘Indian’ and ‘Unique’ (geddit?). It only attracted limited feedback this year but such as we have continues to declare it as outstanding all-round.
3. Dishoom Indian restaurant in Manchester 32 Bridge Street - M3
The all-conquering chain brings its “fabulous menu” of “inventive Indian dishes”, “full of really great surprises”, to a “stunning, evocative room” in a former Freemasons’ lodge. “I haven’t missed a meal here in my last 15 trips to Manchester and for a good reason!”. “The millennial metropolitans (my daughters) may have decided that it is over-rated, but for me it’s a wonderful experience”. Top Tip – “the lamb shank biryani, which is unique to Manchester, is always top-notch”.
4. Akbar’s Indian restaurant in Manchester 73-83 Liverpool Rd - M3
2021 Review: This “crazily busy” branch of Shabir Hussain’s Bradford-based group “still delivers great curry and their specialism of over-sized naan”. It’s one of the few places that lists camel (‘on the bone’) on its menu.
5. This & That Indian restaurant in Manchester 3 Soap St - M4
This legendary cheap ’n’ cheerful Northern Quarter curry canteen is “still the best-value food in Manchester city centre” – as it has been for almost 40 years. “If you’re a veggie you can choose rice and 3 curries for under a fiver: an absolute bargain”. It even inspires poetry amongst some fans: “steaming-full plates of flavour-packed nosh, all of them served for v little dosh”.
6. This Charming Naan Indian restaurant in Manchester 78 Sackville Street - M1
2022 Review: A curry house like no other, with the all-vegan dishes named after Smiths' songs; superfan Max Paley founded it as a delivery service from a kitchen inside the Retro music venue (address listed; sit-in dining planned for post-lockdown). Dishes include Girlfriend In A Korma and How Saag Is Now?.
