Indian Restaurants in Manchester
1. Bundobust Indian restaurant in Manchester 61 Piccadilly - M1
“This place could convert me into a vegetarian!” “Cheap ’n’ cheerful” non-meaty Indian street food washed down with craft beer has proved to be a marriage made in heaven for this hip Manchester outfit, which has now opened branches in Liverpool and Leeds as well as, in September 2021, a cavernous brewery-restaurant in the St James building in Oxford Street. Top Tip: “the option of everything on the menu for under £100 is good value if there are 5 or 6 of you”.
2. Indique Indian restaurant in Manchester 110-112 Burton Road - M20
A “buzzy West Didsbury place, recommended by the S. Manchester Indian community” (and no stranger to the British Curry Awards); their “amazing starters” – street food-style, or from the grill – are the prelude to what fans inevitably call “The. Best. Indian. Ever”.
3. Dishoom Indian restaurant in Manchester 32 Bridge Street - M3
In a “fabulous” grade II-listed former Freemasons' lodge, this northern outpost of the upwardly rising street food chain is “the high-end Indian Manchester needed!” by all accounts; “excellent 'Wrestler’s naan'” and “there is no better biryani” – with “superb and genial” service to round out its charms.
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
“No change at this Manchester institution and why should they?”. “The curt service is not what you go here for”, nor is the “no-frills” decor – you go for the “best value-for-money curry out there”. PS – “if you're veggie you can get rice and three curries for less than a fiver” (and it's only £6.50 if you go for the carnivorous option).
6. This Charming Naan Indian restaurant in Manchester 78 Sackville Street - M1
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?.
7. Great Kathmandu Indian restaurant in Manchester 140-144 Burton Rd - M20
2018 Review: “I have been a customer for 30 years, and it’s as good now as ever!” – this veteran West Didsbury Indian continues to turn out “fantastic” fare that fans feel is far better than on the curry mile.
