Very good visit. This is a real Indian unlike many others which are actually Pakistani. Food was good though a bit spicy so be warned. One minor complaint is that they brought out an extra starter that we did not order and when we pointed it out to them there was a "yes you did, no we didn't". Couldn't be... More

Whilst being in the area and in need of some food, we liked the look of this little establishment. We were able to get a table on a saturday night without making a booking which was brill. The staff which served us were a mixed bag, some were very friendly and others were a bit rushed when serving you. Still... More

Visited for the first time on Sunday evening with two families with adults and children with wildly differing tastes. We found something for everyone, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and we followed their advice to try a few different choices, the Bombay chicken was very tasty. I would recommend the Tandoori Lamb Chops which were delicious.... More

Very basic place but by god the food was great really generous portions. We ordered the set meal for 2 with an extra starter and an extra portion of rice. Went between my wife and I plus two teenagers.

After more than a decade away from Rusholme I was delighted to find that the Punjab is still run by the same family and is still serving a great selection of authentic Indian curries - that means the vegetarian options are numerous. Originally set up by their father, the two brothers ran it while I was resident in Manchester in... More

After reading reviews of most of the restaurants on curry mile it was really hard to choose. This was the closest to the hotel and probably what sealed the deal. Was greeted by the lovely AJ who showed us to our table and brought some poppadoms straight away. I had watched some you tube videos of Indian street food and... More

Went for the first time and really liked Naan Bread with some non veg as well as vegetarian snacks. Ambience is Ok, easily accessible via Bus route. Parking can be issue on busy days. One of good restaurants on so called curry mile. I will go again for sure.

Thank JayDeeIndia
