    The Spicy Hut. Been there a few week ago. Really enjoyed it. Good Value.

    Al Bilal used to be great, not been since the main road days though.

    Spicy Hut or the Punjab are both good. I've been to both quite recently.

    If you want to stay in Didsbury, head over to Burton Road to any of the Nepalese restaurants: Great Kathmandu, Namaste Nepal or the Gurkha Grill. They're all good

    Eaten at a lot of these - I'd say Khandoker is very average at best.

    The Nepalese places in Didsbury aren't bad for the authentic experience but the food again is a tad tasteless. If you do go to one of these Gurkha Grill is possibly the best but last time I went in a year ago it looked like a building site as they were downsizing the resteraunt but hadn't done the neatest job of it.

    I'd stick with the reccomendations of Mughli and the tava roll. The other place that I would reccomend is Moon in Withington (their take-away is exceptional although the restaurant isn't particularly exciting). If you venture in to town Lal Quila (under a new name) at the end of Deansgate does a very reasonably priced and good quality take-away and eating in isn't bad either compared to EastzEast and Akhbars that are both nice but very overpriced.

    I do however partially disagree with you on Nando's - the Didsbury one isn't brilliant but the Spinningfields one is much nicer!
     
  7. Me neither ....

    don't rate nandos at all.



    Yes , Khandoker is excellent ......



    Only 12 sit down curry restaurants left on curry mile apparently .....

    Shisha smoking bars now said to outnumber them by two to one.

    Sangam's is still OK although it used to be much, much better.

    I went to Akbar's near the Museum of Science and Industry recently for a friend's leaving do. It was a lot better than what you can expect on the Curry Mile these days.
