[Manchester] This & That Cafe Review

This & That Cafe
3 Soap Street, Manchester

In the trendy northern quarter of Manchester, there are bunch of cheap, no-frills curry cafe's. They offer cheap Indian food, less of the typical 'UK Curry Restaurant' style, and more (so I am told) like homemade Indian food.

The 'This & That Cafe' on Soap Street, is probably one of the more well known of these.

I went on Sunday, and was treated to a generous portion of rice, 3 scoops of different curries, a Lamb Nihari (they start preparing this on the Thursday), Keema and a Potato based one. I also got a fresh Roti and a large glass of Mango Lassi. There are different curries for each day, so depending on when you go.

This was all for the princely sum of £4.10

The food was lovely, the lamb was nice and tender. I also liked the fresh sliced ginger and onions that were available for you to sprinkle on your food.

Now as I said, this is a cafe, don't expect the Ritz, or even MacDonalds. But it's clean, the 'service' is friendly, the food is tasty and the price is great!

I used to work in central Manchester and so often went here for a cheap and tasty dinner, you would be chowing down alongside, businessmen in suits, builders, local textile workers and students.

This place is IMHO a little gem
