Abdul's (Rusholme)

Pakistani/North Indian style - Wilmslow Rd, Rusholme

The service here was excellent - speedy, friendly and we were given free poppadoms. The meat was OK but the bread, salad and sauces were disappointing, with the naan tasting distinctly of the pizza oven. The meat was too heavily marinated leaving a pasty coating which was unpleasant in the mouth. The music was pretty bad too. The kebabs were some of the cheapest around - but not cheap enough. There's no obvious reason to come here given the other options in Rusholme - although after a few pints in Sand Bar or Big Hands the Oxford Rd. branches seem more appealing and have very little competition. Presumably that is how Abdul's has generated its loyal fan base.
