The Dhanak Deira has been in the Shahid family since 2008 and has been under the stewardship of eldest son Omar since 2011. They’ve become a staple of the Bolton curry house scene all the while, and are now proud to announce their renovation and their updated name: The New Dhanak Deira. The food is as good as ever, with a range of Indian delicacies, particularly in the field of Indo-Chinese cooking, so you know that when you make the trip into Astley Bridge, you’re going to get an experience to remember. Take a trip to their location on Blackburn Road – built into an old church – for a pan-Asian meal to remember in Bolton.
The Indian subcontinent is a huge place, and the diversity of cuisine available across the whole peninsula is astounding. While we in the UK are very well catered for in the way of Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi cooking – and it isn’t that hard to find Sri Lankan, Nepalese and Afghan restaurants with a little effort as well – we often lack the authentic tastes found in the region. One such cuisine that is beloved in India but not found outside is Indian-Chinese, the fusion between the two countries that developed in Kolkata, where there is a large Chinese community. The New Dhanak Deira on Blackburn Road in Astley Bridge brings this unique culinary style to Bolton, so set a course for their restaurant to try it for yourself.
The New Dhanak Deira menu includes some of the biggest hitters of Indian Chinese cooking. Begin with a chicken lollipop, marinated in pomegranate and served with a Sichuan style sauce, followed by a lamb Manchurian, a sizzling hot plate with chillies and a tangy sauce. All your favourite Indian staples are there as well – tandoori starters and classic curries for example – and there are plenty of house signatures. We’d point you in the direction of the lamb nihari, a slow cooked shank with plenty of spice and herbs, or the magaz, sheep’s brain fresh from the pan. Book online now and get the family together for a trip to The New Dhanak Deira, one of the best Indian restaurants in Astley Bridge.
This has fast become our favourite place to eat. I can easily say at the age of 39 this is the best curry I have tasted. Very fresh, pan hot and well presented. Nice wine list, friendly staff and very clean and modern. The value for money is exceptional.
Allhamdulilla food was lovely. Service was good. Food was fresh Allhamdulilla they put a screen up for me as I wear niqabi which was brilliant and i was served by a female which again was thoughtful. In Sha Allah will be going again.
Superb, no complaints at all from my party, this was our first visit and we chose Indian however, we will be back to sample the Chinese end of the menue in the near future. The decor, the food, the experience were all sumptuous. I am in a wheelchair and my experience with it was also fantastic, nothing was a problem from start to finish, unfortunately not many other establishments seem to offer that.
After our first experience we thought we'd try a busier day and went on mothers day. Again we wasn't disappointed with the food. service was a little slow but considering it was such a busy day it was understandable. overall great night
I have eaten in lots of resturants but The New Dhanak Deira is by far the best restaurant I have been.The staff is so friendly.The food was so delicious. Highly recommended
This is not the first time, I came al the way from Stockport, the service was really good, lovely Asian girl ( waitress), the food was also top class The only 2 let downs are: Fizzy water for £3.95!? Not even a proper big bottle, we had to order 2, £8! You must re- look at this Second, my Roganjosh was ace, just felt the portions were small compare to others ( my Lahore) for example, especially the meat
It's a lovely restaurant, the staff are polite and attentive. The food varies depending on what is ordered, some of it being very good, other items being satisfactory, but not exceptional. The portions are generous. Be prepared to wait for your food though as it can be busy. Overall, it's a restaurant worth visiting and my family would certainly visit again.
My family and I went 25th October to celebrate my husband and son birthday, we had a good time . Excellent food choices. They gave my son and husband a birthday card, very sweet thing to do. We had a good time. I would visit again and recommend others.
Really enjoyed the food. Freshly prepared and service great. Will definitely be coming again rather than travelling into Manchester. Only criticism would be that quite a few deserts were not available so we had to settle for what was available
Confusing menu but excellent food. Would highly recommend the meat platter sizzler for sharing as a starter. The staff were nice and the restaurant has been re furnished to a high standard
