Indian Affair showcases North Indian cuisine cooked Dilli-style. It’s inspired by the city’s diverse flavours and home-style cooking. Whilst the dishes on our menu can be found across North India, the way of cooking is specifically from the Delhi region which makes it truly unique.

The carefully curated menu aims to reflect the traditional and modern sides of Delhi and presents some of our most loved dishes.

For us Dilli is an emotion and is perfectly summed up by the famous saying “Dilli dil waalon ki,” Delhi belongs to the big-hearted!

    Some of the best Indian food I've had - and very different to anything else available around Chorlton/Didsbury too. The Paneer Lababdaar (with homemade Paneer) was especially good. Only very small downside was we were sat quite close to the door which let in an icey blast of air every time it was opened... but it didn't spoil the meal in anyway.

    Excellent food combined with fantastic service! We have tried almost all the dishes on the menu (over the year) and couldn’t fault any of them. This place a is a real gem for Indian food lovers. The flavours and spice is always spot on. It’s always busy whether it’s a weeknight or weekends so recommend to pre-book.

    This was our second visit and the food was great once again. We have mixed family of vegetarians and non- vegetarians and this was great for us as the variety was great for both. This is not your booze and fall over place but a great quality food outlet where the cocktails flowed and mocktails for the non-alcoholic in the family.

    We ordered 5 small plates between 2 of us and every single one was a 10 out of 10! We then tried the dessert which is something I very rarely do when I go out for an Indian meal. The milk dumplings in rose syrup were lovely! And the pistachio ice cream! Looking forward to my next visit :)

    Best real Indian food in town. Great vegetarian choices and fish too. Not a huge menu but enough for multiple visits. All made on the premises, no bought-in sauces. Lovely people who are happy to talk you through your choices. A taste of Delhi in Chorlton. Recommended.

    The quality of food is probably one of, if not the best I have tasted. What makes Indian affair so special that it has things on the menu that differ from your regular Indian restaurant. Super quality, super tasty and super service…..!

This restaurant reminds me of Michelin rated restaurants in London and I wont be surprised if they get a mention in Michelin guide soon! The presentation of the food deserves a special mention this time :) keep it up 👍🏼

    Food tasty, portions v small , I'd rather pay more to get a proper portion. Staff need to be trained in Customer Service Skills, so that they don't question or challenge the customer when told that something is wrong on the order. Been to many Indian Restaurant's in and around Manchester. as we eat out twice a week. Why was I asked this by one of the staff after mentioning that portions were small ??? Don't know why it had such great reviews clearly people who go don't have much experience eating out . If they carry on this way it's bye bye to your Restaurant and another will take your place very quickly .
