Eat up, our kid. Eat up. These are words that may as well be the city-wide mantra of Manchester when it comes to Indian food. No other city in the UK loves curry like Manchester. Curry to Manchester is as important as football, as important as Joy Division and as important as not being scared of a little rain, and it goes without saying that Indian restaurants in Manchester are the flagbearers. They’re the institutions that make the special relationship between Mancunians and Indian food possible. They have standards to keep and criteria to fill. Quite simply, they have to be outstanding. Indian restaurants in Manchester are everywhere and not one of them would last a day if it was failing to cut the mustard.
