Average Indian / Pakistani food. The buffet is really cheap but food is just average. If you are in Rusholme then you can try it once.

The food was average. Desserts were awful. Food wasnt completely fresh. Very cheap so cant complain too much. Food tasted nice. Starters were ok. Main dishes didnt seem too appealing so i stuck to starters. Salad bar wasnt much either. Desserts were dissapointing. Cold blocks of gajrela, kheer that looked like it had been there ages. Atmosphere was nice and... More

Myself and two friends decided to visit this restaurant on the famous Curry Mile having seen the low rates it has to offer during the week, The restaurant was nearly empty on a Friday night, but the food was well-stocked. However it was of varying quality. Many curries were a little dubious, whilst the makhani in particular was very tasty... More

If you fancy a buffet in Rusholme, this is the place to visit. A reasonable selection of starters, some vegetarian some meat, no poppadoms?, reasonable selection of curries, most of the meat curries have lots of bones, and little meat to pick off, some different curries, including paya(Sheep's trotters), with very little meat on and lots of grissle, Lamb palak...

Went there with some frends for a quick cheap meal for £8.99 per head. The decor is old style with some broken tiles and shabby interior, food wise starters were just ok. Unfortunately i found a hair in my seekh kebabs and after informing the waiter nothing happened. The choice of main dishes were fair but needs drastic improvement in... More

I've visited the Islamabad Grill on numerous occasions over the last three or four years and it has always been excellent. Before this most recent visit I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and thought I'd write my own to add some balance and reality to the reviews on here. Where all the negative views come from is beyond me.... More

We called in to Rusholme for our first experience on the "curry mile" as it's known. We fancied a buffet and so called here for all you can eat for £8.99. The restaurant was a little dimly lit which probably didn't help when trying to see what I was scooping out of some of the containers of the different curries... More
