Zaika, Upper Chorlton Road, Whalley Range.
Finally, a trip to Zaika. This place is in the block that contains the Hillary Step and Jam Street - sort of sandwiched between the two. It used to be Kashmir King. The food was pretty good and the service was efficient and polite. The chicken tikka meat was a bit redder than we usually like, but the marinade was subtle and the kebab was cooked just about right. The seekh kebab was even tastier. The salad and onions were fine, as were the sauces. The bread was slightly thicker and more doughy than is ideal, and it is not cooked in a tandoor. One of us ordered chapatti and got naan, but that is hardly breaking news. Nothing amazing, but a decent feed after a night out. A large seekh and a medium chicken tikka cost £6.10.
