We went last minute on a Saturday so was good to find a table! Slightly average food and long wait times on service.

When we arrived they had no record of our booking. However, they showed us to a table in the conservatory area. We were then greeted by the most miserable waiter I have ever experienced. He gave us a drinks menu then disappeared, we then waited a further twenty minutes with no drinks or food menu. We finally got drinks after thirty minutes and they took our food order. After being in the restaurant for an hour with no food in site we had to leave as we had a to catch a train.
So overall not a very good experience and can not comment on the food as we didn’t get any.

Food was lovely and reasonably priced. Portions aren't huge though so don't expect to share if you're greedy (like me).

Great food, fun atmosphere sat outside, service took a little while - difficult to get enough staff for many places just now not just here I guess. Good and friendly team.

Service super slow, food wasn’t good and restaurant not very clean. We had to wait 1h30 for our food and when we got it was it wrong.

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

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
