Chapati Cafe

Indian subcontinent

Chapati Cafe is a gem in the tradition of the good-old ‘rice and three’ that every true Mancunian holds dear.

Your curries come served on a compartmentalised metal tray, which some may say is reminiscent of lunch at Strangeways, but it’s actually how food is often served in ashrams and cafes in India, so there.

The menu itself changes daily, with seven or eight dishes to choose from, about two-thirds of which are vegan, as is also common in India.

Their namesake flatbreads are freshly made, authentic and perfect for mopping up that moreish masala. Anxious types can check out their daily menus on the website but there’s also a daily chalkboard of specials, sometimes appearing on Twitter.

As the name suggests, this is not a fancy restaurant, but a cute cafe with plastic chairs and some pretty ceramic tile decor, and it’s all the better for it. Pop in for a bargain casual lunch or grab one of their big pots to take away. Bringing back your empties for recycling is encouraged.
