Stockport Rd, Levenshulme.
This is possibly the most basic place we’ve ever been to. Two things are served: Naan and Naan with spiced mince, tomato and chillies. The latter is sometimes called keema naan, however we think that’s just to make life easy for people and it doesn’t do this dish justice. Also, keema naan is usually stuffed with mince. On the menu this is referred to as Lahma Bil Ajeen – which is an established Middle Eastern dish somewhere between an open meat pie, a cheese-less pizza and a keema naan. The plain naan are 4/£1 which is a great deal. The Lahma Bil Ajeen was £2. They advertised Shawarma Naan at £3, but there was no sign of it.
The Lahma Bil Ajeen were great actually – rather rich due to the oily lamb, but the addition of tomato and chillies stopped them being a stodge fest. Also greedy fellas like us would need two for a good feed. But at £2 how can anyone complain about anything? Obviously there’s no real point in coming back to try other things as there aren’t any – but if we were in the vicinity we’d happily return for a couple of these beauties, or if you lived near by and were cooking dropping in for the fresh naan to accompany the meal would be really convenient. At 25p a go it’d be rude not to. Great little place and sometimes it’s a relief not to be bombarded by a 200 item menu.
