10 of the best restaurants on Burton Road in Didsbury

Didsbury is easily one of the most desirable places to live in Manchester. With its leafy tree-studded roads and bustling community feel, this lovely suburb has a whole tangle of streets and independent shops, delis, and restaurants to dive into.

The Burton Road Metrolink stop alights you conveniently at one end of West Dids’ friendly main road –  a down walk here will give you plenty of inspo for a day of shopping and dining.

Stop for a thick Italian Cioccolata Calda hot chocolate at Cocoa Cabana, and end with a chippy tea at “the classiest fish and chip shop in Greater Manchester”, The Chippy on Burton Road.

    Indique

    Indian subcontinent

    Indique is formed from the words Unique and Indian. That’s a bit optimistic as many Indian restaurants have swapped their chicken tikka masala and their lamb rogan josh for bhel puri and gobi Manchurian. However, Indique do a good job. Their menu is a tempting one with some unusual dishes and food is tasty and very well presented. How many curry houses have a cloche?

  • Vegan Pizza at Proove Pizza, Didsbury

    Proove Pizza

    Italian

    Proove Pizza has proven itself to be a success which is fortunate because there’s no shortage of eateries slinging out Neapolitan pizzas from their disco ball of a wood-fired oven. It’s up there, flinging around its fior di latte and spreading its San Marzano tomatoes with the best of the authentic slow-proved pizza pack and even if it’s not numero uno, it’s definitely a contender.

    The interior is cool and sleek if a little lacking in character but the personality is all in the pizza. The bases are made with 00-grade Caputo flour and proved for 20 hours before being transformed into pure pizza pleasure.
