A sleek brick-ceilinged joint on Castle Street, with flashy neon lights shooting out from a polished bar, Umeeds is certainly not your average Indian restaurant. Blending old and new and dishing up delicious South Asian food as well as live music, Bollywood performances and other fun events, Umeeds is one-of-a-kind in greater Manchester. Found right in the heart of Stalybridge, Umeeds is a place for succulent seafood like a salmon ka kazan or king prawn chingri badshahi or mega vegetarian mains like peppers stuffed with paneer and chickpeas or the impressive khadai paneer bindi special. It’s also where you can find tried-and-true favourites like tandoori chicken, vindaloo and traditional balti done with an expert attentiveness to proper spice balance. Basically, this unique Indian spot has everything you would expect, and then quite a bit more.
