I am a self confirmed addict here and many a hangover has been put to bed by a huge bowl of channa or dahl or sag aloo. This time it was the former and the latter, piled high with a mound of rice and a light, fluffy naan. Service was a tiny bit slower than usual but I will be... More

Never changed in 20 years, still green plastic chairs attached to tables... Basically very basic, and the food is genuine street Bangla-Manc food; good quality YES- good value YES - good service YES as long as you don't set your expectations to high unpretentious and good

Top class food, simple, modest surroundings, quick service and nice people serving. What more could a curry lover want?

Had a lovely meal of chick peas and rice with side salad topped with plenty of chopped chile peppers. Washed down nice fresh water. Only £5.50 a real tasty bargain. Lovely friendly staff.

Food here is delicious.. Even my 2 year old loved the keema and peas with rice. Used to come all the time when we worked in town for lunch but not been for years, came today and brought our 2 and 4 year old. Who shared keema and cheesy naan. The gentlemen who run it are lovely and polite and... More

I love this place. Every time I go I have veggie curry, dhal and chapati for under a fiver. You can be in and out in less than 15 minutes. Absolutely delicious food in a very basic cafe with friendly staff. An absolute gem.

It was Saturday and the Kabana was closed so we found ourselves in the Al Faisal. The onion bhaji and seekh kebab were as good as usual but the Karahi lamb was a little bland and unexciting. The naan bread was good though. It is still good value for money and a pleasant change from the trendy eateries that have... More

A great place to eat in the Northern Quarter, Al Faisal serves delicious, uncomplicated food at brilliant prices. I really love the chicken tikka.

I go here regularly when I am in Manchester. The food is lovely and the staff are friendly and helpful. I always buy some curries, kebabs and bhajis to take home to freeze. They are great when I warm them up. Definitely recommended. Authentic cuisine.

I've been to many of the curry cares in Manchester, and this one consistently delivers. I visited today for a lamb curry with a chapati, onion bhaji, meat samosa and a coke. The whole meal came to around £7. The lamb was tender and tasty and the sauce full of flavour. The onion bhaji and samosa were fresh and clearly... More
