Restaurant review - Swadesh, Bowdon

Digest this mini-review in 60 seconds

A cut above Indian thats clearly appealing to locals: Swadesh now has restaurants in Wilmslow, Didsbury and Manchester city centre. Dont expect cheap Curry Mile prices, but youll enjoy fabulous food in a fine dining setting.

Superior versions of Indian restaurant favourites, plus plenty more. Vegetarians are well catered for too. But as dedicated carnivores we recommend the following delicious dishes: Murgh Joshila Tikka - 6.25 starter featuring succulent meat marinated in yogurt, coriander, green chilli and peppercorn; Mass Ke Sule - 6.25 tasty starter of lamb tikka marinated in spicy yogurt; Adraki Chapen - 13.95 main course of rack of lamb in ginger and yogurt with garlic, chilli, nutmeg and cinnamon - satisfying.

Chic: white leather chairs, dark wood tables, crystal wall hangings and gorgeous metal beaded curtains. No sign of flocked wallpaper.


Lively and welcoming. Customers nodding hello to fellow diners: clearly a popular place.


Exemplary: pleasant, attentive staff who know about the food theyre serving.


Two of us dined royally on poppadums, starters, mains, desserts, and decent wine for 89.
