Although the portion size was good it lacked heat. My Rice and Three Meats, good value at £6, tasted more like a stew than a curry, which was not at all what I had experienced on previous visits. It was pleasant but not to my taste, .i.e. Madras strength.

I have been going to This and That for over 10 years and the standards never change. Fortunately they are always good. There are many imitators but none are in the same league. Good tasting good quality, well priced traditional Indian food.

My only disappointment was that the food spice level.was a little bit dumbed down and that is for a very understandable commercial reason as the majority of people coming are not able to stomach anything more daring. I think having said that they could up the spiciness just a little bit as there is the danger that even tbeir regulars... More

If you've never been, you need to try it! It is brilliant. Having lived in India for 2 years I can say it's as tasty as some of the meals I had there.

Wow. I've been to the other three curry and rice places in the northern quarter and this one is the best, in terms of food and decor. Yes, it is basic and you will probably share a table with a stranger, but for a quick, tasty and great value meal, you can't complain. A range of meat and vegetable curries... More
