Aamchi Mumbai in Stockport’s Cheadle is one of Greater Manchester's best contemporary Indian restaurants. The team at Gatley Road brings together a kitchen staff with experience cheffing in five star establishments across the region and beyond and a chic, modern interior – there’s little here to suggest a run-of-the-mill curry house. Here diners find sophisticated curry and Indian street food dishes served up with the fine dining finish that is in keeping with the pedigree in the kitchen.
For those on the hunt of a takeaway with generic curry sauces should head elsewhere in Cheadle; there’s none of that at Aamchi Mumbai. Instead, the cheffing team have worked hard to craft dishes that reflect contemporary Indian cuisine, with a street food slant that is unlike anything else in Stockport’s dining scene. Diners at the Gatley Road favourite are heading down to Aamchi for their innovative take on classics like chicken tandoori and seekh kebabs, but equally diners are discovering little known specialities like vada pav (a Mumbai-style burger with potato) and panni puri (a pasty-like creation with chutney), unlike anything else in this corner of Manchester.
The first bite, they say, is with the eye, and there’s no doubt that Aamchi Mumbai on Cheadle’s Gatley Road in Stockport has taken this truism to heart. Every dish coming out of the kitchen here is a masterpiece of design: low-hanging chicken skewers, cream-drizzled curry pots, artful street food – everything here is beautiful. Find diners from across Greater Manchester heading here for Aamchi’s genuinely different take on classics from Indian cooking, cuisine and style.
Excellent food . I have been to India 3 times and this is the most authentic Indian food I have eaten in the Uk Lovely decor and atmosphere and exceptionally professional friendly restaurant manager who will happily explain the dishes and ensure you have a great dining experience. So much better than when we visited 2 years ago when the food was good but not as good and the service by the previous manager lacking . We shall be back again soon
A delicious meal had by all (2 adults and 2 children). The recent additions to the menu make deciding what to have an even more difficult task and we eventually settled on a mix of old favourites (masala dosa, bhel puri) and some new dishes (including the delicious baingan bharta).
Food was fab, restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and staff were very helpful efficient and friendly will certainly return for a further visit ! Thanks for a great meal !
