Manchester has a huge Chinatown, right in the city centre, and there are Indian restaurants dotted all over the city that are of the absolute highest quality. Pakistani and Bangladeshi tandoori places predominate too, and one can even find a Nepali restaurant from time to time. Sri Lankan food, however, is lesser known, but out in Glossop, Ayubowan are flying the flag for Sinhalese cuisine. They offer dishes which seem similar to the curries we all know and love, but with a twist that takes them to the next level. Seafood is a speciality – Sri Lanka is an island after all – and there are plenty of vegetarian options as well. We’d recommend the mixed kothtu, a curry of chicken, prawn and egg served with shredded roti, stir-fried veggies and spices. Book a table and head on over to the High Street in the centre of Glossop for a subcontinental scran quite unlike anything else in Manchester and beyond.
We were so impressed! Not only the food but the staff 😊 it's a definite go again on my list! Thankyou for a lovely night 😊
Excellent food fantastic ambience and great staff. First visit was before I travelled to shri Lanka and the staff gave me ideas on Curry's that I would locally expect whilst there. Second visit to the restaraunt it was like being back in shri Lanka again. A great experience and well worth a visit
Warm welcoming staff who explained the menu and made excellent recommendations about dishes which was really helpful as we'd not eaten Sri Lankan food before.Fantastic food, will definately go back.
