In the curry mile you need to be good to stand out and this restaurant definitely does that. Very easy To over order as portions are large, recommend anything from the charcoal. Really good place.

Absolutely outstanding food. The best curry in Rusholme. Amazing authentic charcoal grilled food. Naan's are outstanding.

Overpriced. The management was very rude when I asked a question. There is so many waiters hanging around but none of them actually pays attention to customers ... DISSAPOINTMENT

I've been here a few times over the last few years and have enjoyed it, but came in a group of about 15 tonight and the experience was really bad. The menu was set with only 6/7 curries to chose from, and the starter course...More
