Located just 10 miles away from central Manchester, Wilmslow forms part of Cheshire's 'golden circle' and has been named the second most desirable place to live in the UK after London. It's a well-heeled, stylish and a beautiful old town with a thriving retail centre. Shopaholics can get their fix at the independent boutiques, designer stores and upmarket interior studios before treating themselves to refreshments at one of the restaurants, cafes and bars in the bustling town centre. Dining out here is very popular and the quality of food reflects the discerning gastronomic customers!
The town is surrounded by glorious countryside and there are lovely canal walks to and from the historic Styall Mill and Quarry. It's well worth building up an appetite before you treat yourself to a feast at Wilmslow's Indian restaurants. You'll find lavish buffets with dozens of enticing and freshly-prepared dishes, which are ideal if you love to taste lots of new flavours and dine at your own pace. There are excellent value lunch-menus which allow you to experience a la carte dining with a lesser dent on your wallet and fantastic evening feasts which are perfect for sharing with friends and family.
Many of the Indian restaurants in Wilmslow have award-winning chefs and menus which serve up tantalising dishes that are a little different from the norm. Yes, you will find all of the traditional favourites, such as chicken tikka massala, korma, dhansak and bhuna, but there is so much more to this complex and regional cuisine to discover. Why not dive into a comforting bowl of sag paneer, which is Indian cheese melted into a garlic sauce with spinach and spices? Look out for black rice from Manipur and find out what the specials of the day are for a new taste experience. Mango lassi is a refreshing, sweet drink that goes perfectly with a sweet and sour Goan fish curry, and Sutarfeni is a tempting dessert that fries shredded vermicelli in sweet butter with pistachios and almonds. These authentic pastries are sweet and decadent, and wonderful with a glass of chai.
The Swadesh is stylish, welcoming and a real local hotspot for diners in the know. It serves up extremely high-quality South-Asian food, with a wide array of authentic meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. The Nariyal ka murg (chicken thighs cooked with mustard seeds and coconut) are a must-try and the venue also allows guests to bring their own wine. You can rent out the beautiful function room too for any private parties. The Viceroy is another excellent venue which serves fine Bangladeshi food, including some of the best tikkas, kebabs and tandooris in the area. Just remember that the town is a dining hotspot and the Indian restaurants in Wilmslow can be busy. Make sure you have a hassle-free dining experience and book ahead to reserve your table.
