“Spicy Mint is, I have no doubt, the best curry house in Manchester.”

Vintage Laurie, Manchester

“We come here quite often, especially for a celebration. It’s a good atmosphere, very friendly, I like the service. The food is fantastic!”

Carolina, Manchester

“The food is brilliant, the service is great and what’s more we can bring the kids knowing that they’ll enjoy it too. We’ve been bringing the kids since they were small. Spicy Mint is reasonably priced and there’s plenty of food. That’s why it’s our favourite family restaurant.”

Tracey and Andrew, Stockton Heath

“It’s good every time we come. The service is excellent, we have a laugh with the waiters. We really enjoy a night out at Spicy Mint.”

Sue, Bolton

“It’s been absolutely fantastic, lots of spicy food.”

Sam, London

“We come every Thursday. I don’t have to look at the menu, Sheps knows exactly what I have and he just gets it for me.”

Lawrence, Manchester

“Whenever we come to the Spicy Mint the food is always good and so is the service. Whether we come on our own for a dinner for two or with our children and grandchildren, Sheps always looks after us and it’s a great night out.”

Ro and Mike, Warrington

“Staff are very friendly, it makes a pleasant change when the staff make you laugh!! I have on many occasions recommended this restaurant and will continue to do so.”

Annie, Manchester

“On your first visit, you will experience and enjoy spectacularly good food, in an informal atmosphere with friendly, respectful service and an amazingly modest bill. After two or three visits, you will be greeted and served like a family friend.”

Terry & Caroline, Winwick

“The Spicy Mint in Rusholme is simply superb. Every month for over ten years my wife and our friends have visited many restaurants in Manchester and have not found more tasty, good value food to compare with ‘The Spicy’. We always find the staff very friendly and although it gets busy, it’s never long to wait for a table. A recent revamp brought the comfiest seats I’ve ever sat on! Well worth a visit…….you will return!”


“Absolutely love! Great food and wonderful service. 5*…”

Martin And Laura

“We have been going to Spicy Mint for many years and enjoy it every single time. This year we held my 30th birthday celebration there. We were a party of 21 people and I have to say the service was just wonderful. We pre ordered all our food and we all got just what we ordered. The food was as delicious as always.All my friends have praised the night highly and loved everything about it. Thank you Spicy Mint. You did us proud. Five stars all they way!!!!!”

Louise & Chris

“After reading other recommendations on various sites about Spicy Mint, we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. There was no pressure to come in, which is always nice, once we entered we were met with a warm and friendly greeting and asked where we would like to sit (we was earlier than most diners and soon it soon started to fill up). The waiter was polite and courteous. We ordered Chicken tikka karahi and cicken rogan josh, pilau rice and a keema nan. The main meal was delicious,The karahi had a smoky taste too it, different to the normal tikka marinate but was pleasantly different with just the right balance of spice and flavour. Helen had the rogan josh and was equally enjoyed with that slight twist to the norm. Highly recommended, definitely go again a very relaxing place to eat….try it”

Simon And Helen

“the chef’s specials (the Handy and Matoke) are the best I’ve had anywhere – just nothing like the boring fare served in 99% of curry houses. These are lovingly prepared dishes that are about half the price they ought to be. I’ve eaten in some very expensive Indian restaurants and never tried anything as good as the Handy or Matoke. Ignore the decor though!”


“With all the curry houses in Rusholme, it can be a bit of hit or miss situation trying to choose one. Take my advice and try Spicy Mint. Nowhere else comes close, not in Rusholme, in fact, I’ve not eaten a better curry in Rusholme. But then, I’ve been spoiled,you may get “surprise ch**en” on you first visit !.”

Jo Martin

“My 7 year old daughter and myself went to Spicy Mint again on Friday evening. My family have been many times before, the food is amazing and so are the staff. The lamb starter and lamb shashlik melts in your mouth, the best restaurant in Rusholme bar none. Thank You Spicy Mint for the present.”

Darrell & Amy

“I have been many times to spicy hut and tried almost all the dishes but the specialities are excellent.Will recommend to anyone as the food is not greasy.”


“brilliant, good quality food, the manager is a top geezer the chicken sheshlic and chicken kumbi taste lovely. The restaurant is smaller than the others but has quality, better then the other restaurants on the curry mile. Took my lady there she loved it”


“Having eaten at nearly all the curry houses in Manchester the spicy hut has to be the best in town. I have recommended it to many people and they have all become regulars.Try for yourself and see that Shabir and his staff will go out of their way to make your visit an occasion to remember. Food is fantastic. The service faultless.”


“From a quiet dinner for two to a special function for up to 50 persons The quality of the Food and service was of the highest standard.Everyone should try this restaurant and then be able to say that at last they have found the best.”

Brian, Susan, Ron, Sheila and Eric. Manchester

“The spicy hut continues to be the place to eat on the curry mile, we often try other places now and again, but always return to the Spicy Mint. The service is spot on and the food always good. Another point is that they don’t skimp on the portions of rice etc. so you always leave “full as a house”.”

David from Timperley


“We try to visit every 5 weeks as we live in Wigan the staff always make us welcome and never forget a face we just love the food and specially the lamb chops starters they are brill we only go to the spicy hut now and we have tried a lot of Indian restaurants in the area it is simply the best see you all in 3 weeks Kathy and Malc if you go ask for the special”

Kathy And Malc

“just one word: FABULOUS”


“Excellent food and marvelous service. Best curry in town. specially their Sizzlers and Handi. Service is so friendly and out standards. definitely we’ll be back soon.”


“We found a parking space outside this place and decided to try it. Our usual is Mughli. All we can say is, after 3 years, we have decided to make this our new regular place. The mix starter and tandoori was filling, we still managed the lamb jalfraizi and chicken mesti….very delicious! We’ll be there this weekend!”


“Recommended by a friend and now recommended by myself!…Lamb chops unbeatable… Mesti curry very delicious!! Forget trying the rest, I’ve found the best!….”


“I have tried a number of curry houses but none have yet matched the spicy hut since first eating there over two years ago. The service is very good and all staff are very friendly. The food excellent. Recommended is the Handi either chicken or lamb.”

Egon Lowe

“Without a doubt the most elegant restaurant on the Curry Mile (Rusholme) … Splendid decor … Great music … Excellent food … A true delight to eat in.”


“Excellent food, very welcoming and friendly staff. Once you eat here you wont want to try any of the other Rusholme restaurants. I recommend the malta curry sauce.”


“Having read favourable reviews on this site we decided to give it a go and were not disappointed. The outside has changed from many web pictures and looks more inviting now, the inside was very busy with happy diners. We sat upstairs and found the waiters extremely efficient and friendly, the food arrived quickly and was gorgeous.
A korma for our 12 year old who is not very adventurous and a samber which tasted gorgeous, along with a mirhani. The peshwari naan was the best I’d tasted. Watch out for the sizzlers, how the waiters keep their eyebrows is a miracle! Will definitely go again and would strongly recommend. Fantastic value for money. Enjoy!!!!”

Jill Booth

“Each time we have a meal here the service and food is excellent. They are very children friendly and they always make you feel welcome. I always recommend this restaurant to family and friends. Keep up the good work”


“A restaurant for all the family young and old. My children always want to come here for their birthday especially for the “Special Chicken” menu. Best curry house a must to dine there”


“Really nice food, and the staff are brilliant. If you take someone for the first time and make sure they get the “special chicken” you’ll get a sample of their sense of humour!”


“Always busy but always pleasant, Spicy Mint serves consistently good curries.”


“make sure you order the chicken shashlik sizzler with the sauce of your choice. Probably enough for two! The Shami kebabs are top as well!”


“we visit here very often and the staff, food and atmosphere are 1st class. my children are welcome and love going down to see the staff who over the years have become family friends. nothing is ever too much of a problem to the staff and there is always something different to try on the menu.”

“It’s been absolutely fantastic, lots of spicy food. It’s good every time we come. The service is excellent. Respectful service and an amazingly modest bill”


“I was there on Wednesday evening and there was hardly any table in the restaurant i was served with poppadoms as i sit there but after waiters sat down in the end and near the window and start chatting with themselves after a guy came took my order and i got my food that was really great i never had that kinda curry in my life. Can’t wait to go back again. They should improve there service because food is outstanding. Waiters should wear proper cloths, because three of them were there wearing different shirts and funny with checks.”


“We’ve been regulars for a couple of years – my kids even call Sayeed[sp?], “Grandad”. Food is fantastic [TIP]Try the Lahori. You will not find a better curry in England! Service is excellent and always with a smile. Early £30s for four eating;- 2 sizzlers, 2 sauces, rice and chappatis/starters, Pops/dips and salad [the two kids sharing everything] including drinks. Unbeatable. It says it all when we go at least twice a month from Bolton”

“I have been using curry miles for many years. and come across the Sugarvine site and decided to try the Spicy Mint restaurant .it was truly amazing. the best curry i ever had. we started with mixed tandoori, which was fantastic. I tried chicken masti and my partner had chicken handi for main course. i found they were both truly award winners. service is too friendly and impressive. we have finally found a regular place to dine.”
