To start, someone came running up to the door with a ramp as soon as they saw me at the door. This, along with a good sized disabled toilet made me happy about my visit. The service was polite and discreet.

The menu has a vast choice of vegan options: many veg dishes had vegan options, like replacing tofu for paneer so this place could easily be fully vegan if it chose to. I had pani puri for a starter, masala dosa for a main and vegan masala chai: all delicious. I was close to just eating the coriander dip on its own with a spoon.

Pros: Wheelchair accessibility , Delicious Food, Ambience

Would give a 5 if was fully Vegan, the dairy is not necessary !

We visited here with 2 meat eaters and all of us loved it, loads of flavour. Most dishes are Vegan or can be made to be however there are some vegetarian options which kind of makes it more difficult to work out the menu, would be better if just all Vegan as the Veggie options are only a handful anyway just get rid ! Whats red is white remember after all.

Soy tika starter was a no from us.
All pics are Vegan food.

Would defo return, nice vibe and very authentic.

Probably best to book ahead as it was busy, they seated us as we're quick eaters. My girlfriend had a dosa, can't remember what I had but it was lovely. The garlic naan & onion bhajis were fantastic.

Pros: Great vegan options, friendly staff

Delicious currys

We got five different currys and shared here - was a great way of trying lots of different ones! The naans are huge and all the currys were amazing.

Really excellent food

One of the best curry houses I have ever tried. They have an extensive menu and everything I’ve tried has been delicious. The vegan kebabs are great, and the ragda pattis is amazing.

Excellent food

The food is great, both when you sit in and take away. They specialise in South Indian food so it’s quite different from your typical Anglo-Indian restaurant (which is typically based on North Indian cuisine).

Mango Mule mmmmmm

Had the Aloo Gobi, the Seehk kebab, Tarka Dahl, Garlic Naan, Cobra beer, Mango mule.

The Mango mule was delicious, I don't normally order a second drink at restaurants but I had to have another one, so refreshing.
Cobra beer ON TAP was great!

The Seehk kebab came out sizzling, sounded amazing, however, the flavour and texture was more like a falafel, but I love the garnish on it.

Tarka Dahl was really really good, authentic and rich in taste, we asked for super spicy but it came out with zero spice unfortunately, but still yummy.

Aloo Gobi was a bit too salty for me but it smelt and tasted great, again, there was no spice even though we asked for it to be medium spiced.

Galic naan was beautiful, tasted like they put garlic powder right at the beginning of the cooking process which made the end result perfectly garlicky, it was soft like a pillow, loved it.

Nice restaurant, clearly marked menu on what's vegan and what is not, lovely staff, love the decor, lots to look at. Well worth the trip out!

Family favourite

We have been coming here for years and the staff are lovely. We have tried a few different Indians but always come back here. The new make over is a definite winner too!

Major disappointment

Literally never leave bad reviews but after our experience today I believe its necessary. Took 45 minutes to recieve our full drinks order and in this time we had to remind staff about one of the drinks. Nobody came back to take our food order and we had to go to the front desk to ask a waitress to take our order after 45 minutes. After 2 hours our hot food still hadn't arrived. We literally saw tables that had come in after us be seated, served, eat, pay and leave with new people sitting at the table with our food still nowhere in sight. We left without food after two hours, with the waitress initially still trying to get us to pay for the mains we hadn't eaten. Not a single apology from any of the waiting staff the whole time when we had clearly been the only table left to wait. Food looked great but unfortunately now we will never know for sure, do not recommend and will not be returning

Great Vegan Options

I've only given 4 stars due to the fact the food came out warm and we waited ages for the main meal.
The surrounding area outside the restaurant, leaves a lot to be desired if walking from the car park at the back. It's a dumping ground, dog faeces on the path and overloaded bins. All a big turn off because the food although only warm was delicious.

Deservedly cult like following

So far Sanskruti has weathered the storm of lockdown and looks set to bounce back. It deserves to. It’s one of the finest Indian restaurants in the north west. A great range is interesting dishes, freshly cooked and well presented. This place is a lot of people’s local favourite so be sure to make a reservation. The Bindi Anari is a great dish, along with the Vegetable Jaipuri and the Tofu Makhani. It’s well worth the price and the staff are courteous, reserved and very friendly.

Pros: Great adaptability for vegan options, Knowledgable cooking , Super staff

Next level.

Went back in January on a date night. Had to book way ahead because it was busy and so well deserved. The waiter recommended dished and we were not disappointed. Everything tasted incredible and there were just so many flavours. Curries with a mix of street food, lovely busy atmosphere and really pleasant staff.
Couldn't ask or want any more. Will be returning soon!

Lots of choice for Vegans

Been going to Sanskruti for a few years now. Food is always good, lots of Vegan choices and plenty of Veggie stuff that can be be made Vegan. Can get busy, so best to book.

On last visit we had Uttapam, Sev Puri and Vada Par starters (all delicious). I tried Kathal Lazeez (Jack fruit curry) for the first time, based on other review comments and it was very tasty.

If you are a vegan (or a veggie) and like Indian food then you can't go wrong with this place.

Best Indian in Manchester

Hasn’t changed a bit in years, and doesn’t need to. Even my vehemently anti-vegan brother was happy with the food, and that’s saying something! The jackfruit curry and the jaipuri are a must. Can’t recommend enough, swerve the curry mile and come here if you want an authentic Indian dining experience.

Ps. Get the family naan if there are a few of you!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Amazing food, great value for money, Jackfruit curry really will surprise non-vegans!

Cons: Take-out can be varied, Book a table to avoid disappointment, You can’t take the stackable cups home with you.

Good, reliable option

Food here is great and fairly consistent, they also take allergies and veganism far more seriously than they used to, which is good.

A great, reliable choice for fantastic vegan Indian food

Pros: Huge menu , Inexpensive

Cons: Not fully vegan , Service hit and miss
