Middle Eastern style - Wilmslow Road, Rusholme
August 2011 - not been for a while. The chicken shawarma (pictured) was good but not outstanding compared with others. The salad had improved a bit. It's good here, just not quite the best in our estimation.
Al Quds is possibly the most famous Middle Eastern establishment in Rusholme - it seems to be the one people talk about and recommend the most. If you've never been to one I can see why - the bread is fantastic. The first sight and smell of the tandoor naan is a real treat for anyone unaccustomed to it. However everything else is only OK - there are better places overall. However it's a decent introduction to this type of place and certainly has the right feel about it - a tad gloomy perhaps, but that's preferable to the bright lights of newer eateries.
