Pakistani/North Indian style - Wilmslow Road, Rusholme
Finally back after nearly two years. In short it was fine if a bit generic. The chicken seekhs are still around, which is a welcome change, and all the grill stuff looked pretty decent. The only problem is it's a few doors down from Saajan Halal - which does pretty much everything this place does and more. It's a shame because in another location this place would thrive, but it's just that little notch down from Saajan Halal quality-wise which makes visiting a bit pointless - having the same name seems to compund the issue rather than gaining it reputation through association.
Saajan Halal Café is two doors down from Saajan Halal but not affiliated. This place is OK – it meets the basic needs of providing a decent kebab but no more. The service wasn’t great, pretty slow and naan being given instead of the ordered chapatti. The meat and bread were decent and the rare treat of chicken seekh or ‘reshmi’ kebabs were available – and tasty. It’s fine here, but with the Superior Saajan so close the only reason for a return has been when the other is full.
