Excellent in every way The food & service were faultless & we all really enjoyed everything about or visit! The atmosphere is excellent, the service is very attentive but not forced & the flavours in the food are perfect

The food was very nice. I know it’s a tiffin restaurant but the prices they are charging are equivalent to full size portions at other Indian restaurants. Starters are expensive. We were a party of 6 and left hungry. We ordered a starter each, 4...main courses, 5 rice , 2 naan and 2 portions of sweet potatoes. We visit Indian restaurants in Manchester regularly and this should have been enough food, but it wasn’t. Main courses less than half the size of other restaurants so felt completely ripped off.More

Everyone was using the torches on mobile phones to read the menu- a first in a restaurant for me! The food was varied and different, lots of tapas style dishes so great for sharing. The sheek kebab was unbearably salty but chicken tikka one delicious....The grazing platter delicious. Would return, but hope they turn the lights up next time!More

So I ordered online from Indian tiffin room. The order was nice as usual, and I’ve been to the town one which is usually very nice. However, I ordered a kachumber salad, all that came was some cut up lettuce, about literally about two cucumber...slices for £4. (Which is definitely not a Kachumber salad). But mainly the problem was strangely 3 very, very small and almost hidden spicy chillis. At first I was a bit shocked, then an hour had passed (still hadn’t managed to start my other courses) and my mouth was uncomfortably burning regardless of all the milk I’d drank. I’m a man who can understand the level of spice in front of me. I was actually quite infuriated at 1) the poor quality level of salad and 2) the unnecessary inclusion of a really strong spice level that ruined the rest of my meal. If I’d have given this to a child/toddler/baby, it could have honestly been a hospital job. No where did it say the inclusion of a very spicy salad, it felt like because I’d ordered at around 9pm they were playing a trick for ordering late maybe? I’m not sure, I’d like an explanation but I know you don’t always receive one.More

As we entered a member of staff at the bar was giving other team members some grief. It nearly put us off but I’m pleased it didn’t. This busy restaurant was able to accommodate us on a Sunday evening. We shared two starters. I had...an aubergine main course with naan. My wife had lamb chops with Dahl. Food was excellent and service good, but barman/boss, be kind! Guests can hear.More

Selected 3 starters and 1 dessert between two of us.......absolutely delicious, couldn't fault any of them. Staff were very courteous and keen to assist, enjoyed it so much will probably go back again tonight as it's near the hotel we're staying at.

Can’t rate to highly. Fabulous food and great service, really good value. Really like the area. Close to the tram stop so easy for us to get to, don’t know why not been before, will definitely be back. Great veggie options.

While staying in a nearby hotel and checking late we decide to have a quick bite at this restaurant. Overall the food and service was really good. The place has got a nice decor and the food was tasty and with nice flavours. Good choice...if in the area.More

First time eating with you and it won’t be the last. The food was amazing, the portions where generous too. The dosa are must to try. The staff did say that not all the starters might not arrive at the same time which was fine...with us as it allowed to to taste each other’s. The lamb was extremely tender in a very flavourful sauce. Not one complaint from any of us Very friendly staff who checked in with us several times.More

to be honest I can't recall the whole menu as we went to have Indian but its a mix of asian fusion street food - It depends on why the person doesn't eat Indian food but my gut feeling is most was spicy influenced with few... More

They make no mention of it on their website, so I would assume it is not halal. You would be better contacting them direct to ask the question.
