Middle Eastern Style Kebab House, Wilmslow Road, Rusholme
A good trip after a lengthy absence from Jazera. The kobeda kebab was tasty, if a little charred from overcooking. The salad was decent, and the sauces were fine. No complaints about the bread, which came fresh from the clay oven.
One of the group had chicken with rice (£4.50). The rice was subtly flavoured and prefectly cooked. The (half) chicken was a huge grilled piece of meat. I think the kebabs were a better option on the day, but it's always good to try new stuff. A photo can be seen below.
Jazera is a really good, if basic, Middle Eastern Kebab House. The meat was plentiful, well cooked and nicely flavoured – being slightly more strongly flavoured than most Middle Eastern cafes. The lamb tikka kebab was especially good. The tandoor naan was pretty much as good as it gets. The salad and sauces let the kebab down a little – the salad was very basic, being comprised entirely of (too) chunkily chopped lettuce, onion and tomato, and the sauces consisted of only yoghurt and chilli. That slight lack of attention to detail did not stop these being some of the best kebabs of their type. The setting is basic (which is fine) and the service quick and helpful – just what you want in this sort of place.
