Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
We were in charge of the noise levels. I'm not sure I love the new look though, I first came here 20 years ago and last 9 years ago, and I used to like the traditional look.
After my usual place of many years changed it's menu's I went on a walk down the mile to find my favourite dishes! This place did them all so it's now my regular. Last year I came here, got a take out and took it with me to the Czech Republic for my friends over there to experience a real Rusholme curry. It was well received!
great food as always, maybe could do with some more service at times
