The food tasted so good.... just as it says in the menu.... good food takes time to cook. The prices were very reasonable also. I have a habit of over indulging when eating out and... More

The service that the staff provided was very poor as they were arguing with each other. Also, when we politely called a staff member they ignored us and went to serve some other people that ordered their food after us which is rude and disrespectful. Furthermore, we arrived at the restaurant where they told us to sit in the extra... More

The most disgusting food i have ever had, went there 2nd time and the first time it was amazing but this time.. everything tasted disgusting. Paid £20 for fish which was under cooked when told the chef he wouldn't agree. Roaches roaming around the restaurant. Worst Food with Worst Customer Service. Never going back again.

We had a groupon for this restaurant. The place itself is clean and I love how it's decorated. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The menu is different and had lots of exciting choices. Portions were huge. The rice was particularly tasty and enough for us to share. I cannot fault the place, I thought it was great. We... More

Food to Lahoris is what a pen is to writer or a credit card to a shopaholic. Worldwide, Lahoris are known to devour their food and most of them could kill for a lot less than a good chop masala. Here is a tribute to the food lovers of Lahore and for those who want to fall in love with food. If anyone ever tries to tell you anything about real Pakistani Food, please do not believe him or her. As a true Pakistani you have to understand that real Pakistani food is what we offer at DERA Restaurant. We are not boasting about ourselves, its our customers who travel from all parts of the UK, as far as Isle of Wight in the south and Scotland in the north, who have awarded us with such a high rank in Pakistani Food offered in the whole of UK. We opened in February 2010 and since then all our customers always complained about the size of Dera Restaurant. To all the food lovers of UK and EUROPE, we offer DERA Restaurant Cheetham Hill Manchester. We can promise you two things, first you will love the decor and food, and second you will not only come back but also bring all your friends and family. We strongly believe that our food at DERA, is something people should queue up for and after all the agony of waiting, when they actually eat the food and enjoy the atmosphere, deep within themselves, they should feel that it was worth it. We look forward to see you all with your kids, moms, dadee, nanee and everybody.
