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.
Disappointed with our night! Chef scream and shouting at staff in the restaurant, we found it awkward and embarrassing, totally humiliated a female member of staff in front of everyone to which point she walked away very upset and colleagues and diners didn’t know where to look. No coffee available, one flavour of ice cream only and only one dessert left (cake) which the 3 of us had to share. Food ok but not the best.
The welcomed you with a smile. The food was amazing. Would definitely recommend. The price we reasonable. There also had a prayer room so I didn't miss my praying time.
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.
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.
