The New Menu at Mughli (Curry Mile, Manchester)

This autumn, it wasn’t the opening of Manchester House, Mr Cooper’s House & Garden or James Martin Manchester that I was really looking forward to. No. What I was really looking forward to was Mughli’s new menu. Even the news that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, had

Nawaab (Levenshulme, Manchester)

All-you-can-eat buffets always bring out the only-child in me. I look suspiciously at people that are ahead of me in the queue, certain that they’ll pile their plates high from the limited supply of my favourite dish. I am not a good sharer…  It has taken several

Rajdoot Tandoori (Albert Square, Manchester)

Rajdoot Tandoori has been serving Indian food since before I was born. Their Manchester branch, famed to be Europe’s first Tandoori restaurant, opened in 1966 – the year that saw England beat Germany to win the World Cup and the first episode of Star Trek. Given its long history, I

EastZEast Riverside (Manchester)

Curry is my desert island food. In an improbable scenario where I am forced to choose one type of food for the rest of my life, I would probably go with curry. My partner and I have a tradition of sorts: on returning from holiday we go

Shampan (Cardigan – Wales)

I was holidaying in Wales last week so, being a curry lover, I decided to find an Indian Restaurant in Cardigan. My 12 year old daughter also enjoys a curry so when I told her there was a moored boat on the River Teifi – converted into
