Really nice food (probably in Manchester or even northwest). Major downfall is service. The woman at the front never seems happy to serve you.

Consistently perfect. After 30 years of eating Indian food all over the world this ranks as amongst the absolute highest and without doubt is the best curry houses in south manchester. Once you go, you'll never go anywhere else. Always fresh, always beautiful, and always consistent. A gem.

This really is a little gem. Fresh, tasty curries. Haggis pakora, what's not to like. Cobra and Brooklyn beers on tap too. It's criminally quiet, why I don't know. This is easily the best curry in Chorlton, and much better than the one next door. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the lack of a welcome... More

Great curries, fresh and tasty. A bit different to the rest in Chorlton. Favourites are the Amritsar fish fry and the little tamarind and chickpea starters. Rice included with most dishes. Great value. Friendly owner. Has a unique Scottish touch with the haggis ingredients. Should be busier!

Went on a Friday night around 7.30p.m. and were surprised to find only 4 other people dining. The food here certainly deserves a much wider audience - lamb chops and fish tikka starters were both good and the mains of goat curry and garlic chilli chicken were bursting with flavour. Good choice of beers, wine list restricted to house red... More

Very little to add to previous reviews other than to say that the return to the old name feels right. The service is still very friendly but it is the food that excels here. I really do not understand why people go to the other curry houses near by! The pea and cabbage curry is the nicest food ever! He... More

Recently changed their name back from Desi Roots, Tandoori Flame is a real gem and so much more interesting than the usual haunts on the strip. Veggie / meat love will be very happy here
