Visited very recently with two friends we had a selection of currys and 2 chilli nan breads and 1 paratha. All were incredibly tasty and well cooked. Completely authentic. Would definitely be back and excellent hosts. A must visit if in Manchester. A little gem.

Fantastic home cooked curry. Would definitely recommend the rice and three, get a garlic naan bread with it. Portions are more than enough for one person.
