Had seen a fantastic review of this place from Giles Coren. Is it cheap? Yes. Is it clean? Yes. From the outside, would you go in? No!! A traditional Manchester 'rice and three' where you have rice and then pick three curries. The curries were all wonderful, but the staff weren't especially welcoming. Cafe style wood tables with jugs of... More

Needed food pretty fast before a gig in Manchester and had been meaning to try here out from friends recommendations. Called in at 7 on a Friday evening, think it only stays open until 8 Friday and Saturday and just lunch the rest of the week. It's a bit of a strange concept at first, there is a daily menu... More

This & That is a small restaurant, a little bit hidden in the Northern Quarter. Don't get discouraged by the outside, just enter the restaurant and smell the diversity of their delicious homemade curry's. It's a small place, you take your place at the long tables and share your table with other guests. We really enjoyed the food at a... More

This place will never let you down if you're looking for good old fashioned authentic Asian home style cooking. The 3 curry on rice is spot on. Kebabs are nice too. Not to pricey either

Haven't visited in a while but it was reassuringly delightful - rice and 3 meat in my case and 2 meat and a veg in the better half's. All was perfectly cooked and with bread, samosas snd a drink for £15 who can complain / will definitely be back again - lovely as ever.
