Well average!!! We ordered fish starters..tiny potions and not fresh, tasteless. The mains were ok I guess but for the money I'm afraid you can get much better these days...Akbars for eg? They should go there to see how it's done!
The dishes are getting smaller but the price gone up. Be careful when you got the bill always check your bill. They will over charge if you eat with friends in a group. We have notice that the bill was high cost than it should be. They will try to cheat you. Can anyone do something about this?
Being a staff member of coriander I am telling you the truth.
First of all don't give any service charge to the staff even though you get the best service because it goes to the owner's pocket straightaway. It is not shared among staff members.
Secondly, don't have any chutney which comes with poppadoms as they mix them up with old chutnies( which goes back from the table). They never throw any chutney to the bin at all which has already been served, they keep it for next day to mix with fresh ones. What they do is, they make only 7/8
trays for whole night and then start topping up. It means you are eating some one else's chutney which is absolutely terrible.
Finally, if you smell the clothe comes with naan breads, you would understand that how dirty it is.
Well, you might think that why I am telling these secret !!!! My answer is I got to be honest and fare with you.
I went to Coriander on Monday with my flatmate. I can honestly say it was the best curry I have had in Manchester. I had a Chicken Chilli Massalla. The portion was bigger than you usually get, it wasn't oily, and it was downright delicious. My flatmate was also impressed with his Jal Frezi. The breads were fresh and the consistency was brilliant.
I'll be forgetting about the curry houses in West Didsbury from now on. This is a gem
The best Indian restaurant in Manchester without any doubt. Don't bother going down the curry mile, come here. The food is fantastic, no grease and oils, but a pure joy to eat.
I couldn't recommend it any higher. It's a hidden secret so don't tell too many people.
Visited Coriander for the first time last night, it was really busy and although its small you don't feel like you are sitting in the laps of others. The food was fantastic, the staff are really attentive without being overbearing, after enquiring about my own tastes the waiter recommended Grandmothers vegetables and what a fantastic recommendation it was! As a vegetarian dining out with a meat eater, the choice was fantastic. Eaten the left overs for lunch today! Don't be put off by the decor just enjoy the delicious food, great service and nice cold beer.
First visit yesterday,courtesy of the excellent reviews on this page.On arrival at 5pm i was very very sceptical as the place was empty and the decor,although clean,leaves alot to be desired.
We sat down and ordered,with the very helpful assistance of the waiter and,while waiting for the food,slowly the place began to fill up which was very reassuring given my initial impressions! On arrival the food,which smelt fantastic while cooking,tasted even better,i had the shashlic with onion rice and was extremely impressed as were my fellow diners with their choices.Highly recommended and proof you should never judge a book by the cover!(however,please hire a new decorator!!)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This has to be THE best Bangladeshi/Indian cuisine in South Manchester. The vegetarian dishes in particular are deliciously inventive (my favourite is Village Style Vegetable - although I suggest you ask for 'medium' as the 'hot' does tend to detract from the taste!). The staff are extremely helpful and courteous and very willing to adapt dishes to suit individual tastes. Once tasted you won't want curry from anywhere else!
Grandmother's beef says it all, food prepared with love and care without any junk. Don't be influenced with the dross somes places give away to attract customers, Corriander makes honest and very tasty food that I compare all others to - they normally fail.
Coriander was recommended to my girlfriend and myself by several friends which made our experience all the more disappointing! There was always the possibility that their take out cuisine would be lacking slightly in comparison to the sit down menu however that does not offer adequate justification for the sub-standard, bland, greasy dishes that were served up. My girlfriend had a vegetable Rogan Josh and I opted for a chicken Karahi with pilau rice. We were both in agreement that this ranked amongst the worst Indian take-out food we had ever experienced. My advice - stay away!!
