Title: Dishoom Bridge St Manchester
Post by: Ghoulie on April 30, 2019, 10:54 AM
This place opened las November and had excellent reviews in local paper - with queues outside.  Finally got round to trying it last weekend.  Had to queue to get in - strange policy re booking - can book up to 5:45pm - thereafter minimum table for 6 to book.  Sited in the old Masonic buildings - brilliant listed building / decor.  I have been here to a masonic do 30 + years ago.

30 minute wait to get in -well worth it.  Slick / efficient operation here.  They give out brollies to the queue if its raining and hot drinks to tide you over and book you in as you wait.

Quite a good, varied & different menu.  Will take a few visits to get through this.

Expensive, but worth it.

Evem more expensive if you have to take a train from Bodmin to Manchester in order to try it !  But it's good to know that there are still some BIRs worth visiting, even if this one is without my personal catchment area ...

I just put Manchester in to google maps and it’s driveable in 40 hours :) If I leave now I could meet you there on Saturday night :)
There’s an Indian restaurant about 45 mins drive from me. The next nearest is 2.5 hours drive :( 
Thank God for curry forums.
