If you like Indian cuisine this place I recommend. The cleanliness, service and the food are excellent. From ordering to eating wasnt too long of a wait. A big thumbs up to Arnero's.

When you look at the location, next to a bus station and under an NCP car park, you'd probably not expect much. But the food is superb. No loud misc playing so you can have a conversation. Naans very freshly cooked. Papadoms fresh too. Curries are really tasty - not your usual Indian. The decor inside is a bit tired but that shouldn't matter of it's good food you're after. My only gripe - no soft drinks in bottles or cans, only on draught, which invariably doesn't taste great

Late night dinner booked at last minute, service first class and food first class, selection was excellent. Monk fish was a big hit. Would book again but only visiting Manchester for one night

Thanks

Just when there based on reviews. Food was excellent. A bit slow to come as they were very busy. But staff knew I was waiting and apologised. A loud and informal place. But I really enjoyed it. And good value for money too.

Had a fabulous meal, wine and experience, restaurant initially quiet, but glad we booked as it very quickly filled up, and I can understand why. Had one of the best Indian meals I have every had, and that includes the Indians I've eaten in India.

Booked last minute on a stopover in Manchester.
Wasn’t as busy as I expected based on reviews, but we were very impressed with the quality of the food (lamb lean and tender, chicken still moist) and the service. We were even advised to order less bread, which was good advice, other places would have just taken the extra money. Value excellent as well.

In Manchester for weekend with friends and booked online. Very busy but staff were very friendly and courteous. Food was amazing and despite being busy did not have to wait too long for our food. My starters were samosas that were excellent. The tikka masala main was rich and spicy but not over powering. We all agreed that our next visit to Manchester would not be complete without a meal at Arnero's.

We were staying nearby and it looked good so booked a table. Delicious meal, great service - extra green sauce offered and eagerly eaten. We had a shared starter which was a generous portion. I had the fish curry, my husband chose lamb, 2 veg sides and a lovely light nan. Not expensive, and we felt full without being uncomfortable. Excellent evening would definitely recommend and return next time we are in Manchester.

This restaurant is a great little find. The owner/Manager was really personable and approachable, he made the whole evening with his great personality and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff who were all friendly and efficient. The food is fresh, authentic and really tasty. Could not recommend this restaurant enough

We were in Manchester for the first time and thought a curry would be good, it was so good we went the next night too, brilliant food, service was great, yes it was busy but that's a good sign, we will be back in Manchester in a few months and will definitely go back here.

The address postcode does not get you to the restaurant. We had to call as we were lost. The food was lovely and the service great. The music was very odd, dramatic theatrical soundtrack. Kind of off putting

Being a bit of a pessimist when reading Arnero reviews I had to eat my words, as well as a delicious meal here, lovely food and really nice people who worked there. I would go back there and eat time after time, when I get to Manchester next this will be number one on my list. Easy to find, value for money and delicious😍😍

When we got there we saw a notice on the door to say their card machine was out of action. The owner advised there was a cash machine over the road and that he would refund the charge for money withdrawal. No refund was made. The restaurant got very busy while we were there and when we left we said goodbye but none of the staff responded which would have been nice. I guess they were too busy. The food was lovely and very tasty but once we had finished our main course none of the staff can over to see if we wanted anything else. We had to catch the attention of one of them as they flew past! It’s the little things that make the experience a great experience. We would go back again.

We love it. The food is great as is the ambience. The owner is on hand all the time and he really cares about his clients. He will help you decide what to order if you're not sure. The restaurant is quiet and couples can talk easily without a lot of noise around them. I would recommend it it to anyone looking for Indian food.

Absolutely fantastic- only scored the ambiance as 3 stars as one table of about 6 had clearly had too much to drink and their language was unacceptable, not the restaurants fault though.
Fantastic food and service maybe the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to (and I’ve been to a lot).

We were visiting Manchester for the first time at the weekend and booked a table on the strength of online reviews. We had an excellent meal - the restaurant was extremely busy (booking definitely necessary on a Saturday evening) but the service was friendly and very fast. And the food was very, very good indeed. Highly recommended!

I was enticed in by the promise of street food and was not disappointed.
Starter of monkfish in gram flour batter and really rich dip followed by chicken methi and garlic naan. They didn’t stint in the methi leaf - fantastic.
I was greeted warmly and overall a really nice way to spend an hour.
