Jilani’s, along Manchester’s Curry Mile is something of a change of pace for Mancunians accustomed to chicken tikka masala and and mutton biryani on this stretch of Rusholme’s Wilmslow Road. In place of the staid offerings of many of the menus in the area, here diners are treated to the sweet delights of waffles and pancakes, sugary, dunkable fondue as well as great savoury treats like pizza and paninis too.
For those on the Curry Mile, perhaps one of Manchester’s most famous spots (other than maybe the Old Trafford) are hardly stuck for great places to grab food. There are so many restaurants serving curry here that visitors are often spoiled for choice. Let us intervene: if you're looking for something a bit different in this famous corner of Rusholme, get yourself down to Jilani's for an innovative take on classic Wilmslow Road offerings.
For those that like their spice to be followed by something sweeter, Jilani's is the right place to be. Bringing the sharp flavours of Indian cooking to the sweet indulgent delights that are generally overlooked at some of the rest of the Curry Mile’s eateries, here the sweet treats take centre-stage, so those looking for pancakes and milkshakes are in the right place. Manchester’s Rusholme is packed with great places to find spicy Indian food, but is well equipped to cater for the Manchester locals with a sweet tooth. Here Jilani's, on Wilmslow Road (where else, really?), offers a really break with tradition. Find light waffles, indulgent cakes and ice cream galore!
