    Now say I was in your neck of the woods, what places would you recommended and what dish/burger/shake ect with you recommend?

    Iv just Been to Manchester Nawabs and then followed it up with a Milkshake from Archie's! Nawabs for me is great value for money. The food is spot on (buffet). I always fill myself up on the starters and struggle with the main dish. All you can eat for £15. Can't go wrong. Only downfall is when it's hammered it can take 45 mins to an hour waiting for a table. As for dessert I would recommend anyone who comes to manchester to try an Archie's milkshake. Words can't describe how good they actually are!

    I was in Batley (Yorkshire) a around a month ago eating at a place called Godfathers Diner. It's setup as one of them American diner types but have to say the pizzas/calzones were some of the best I have ever tasted! Touched the spot!

    Staying in Yorkshire iv been to Kabana a few times and I think I will be going back a few more. They do something called a Tavha

    You will need a few of you to finish it but you will not be disappointed!

    Who? What? Where? Why? When? :p

    I love a bit of steak and there is this place in Bolton called Barakats. Again these guys do the best steak around for me. I tried Sizzling Pallate which is also in Bolton which didn't come close!

    [​IMG]

    Although there is a new place opened in Cheetham Hill that does a nice steak.
    I took a photo of it before I destroyed it [​IMG]
    This was really nice!

    If anyone's ever in Rochdale if suggest going to a place called International chippy. Now on first looks you will be like where the heck has this guy sent me too but once you have tasted the chicken and chips from that place you will know what I am talking about! Iv tried chicken and chips all over the country and iv yet to come across someone who has done one better

    Khyber Pass in Birmingham .. Traditional Food of KPK, best are Namak Mandi Karahi & Chappal Kebab

    Abaseen in Bradford - more or less same as Khyber Pass.

    Mumtaz - Probably the biggest chain of Asian Restaurants in UK.. Quality food & Service.

    Aagrah ( Bardford ) - Excellent for Ramadhan ..they do buffet for 13.99 but that includes drinks & fruits.

    Mumtaz restaurant is one of the best for food up here in the north. A bit on the pricey side but you pay for what you get. I quite enjoyed the food at Anams in Bradford too. But you are spoilt for choice whenever you want to eat in Bradford

    I am yet to go to Alwalis although many people have recommended it to me. Think I will have to try it out soon.
    Manchester has the curry mile Wilmslow road but I'm bored of it now :p if I ever am there I hardly go to the restaurants. Normally a take out these days. A Kobeda from Al Quds or a Seekh kebab sandwich from Al Madinah! Used to go Lal quila a lot when I was younger but they don't seem to have the same standards anymore

    s2k are meat selling restaurants owned by Muslims in India or do Hindus own them too?

    These two restaurants are owned by Hindus and meat selling restaurants are owned by both Hindus and Muslims in India its a non issue.

    AFAIK most restaurant in India sell halal meat as many meat sellers are Muslims.Punjab is an exception though.

    For Hindus eating meat is not a problem.Only Brahmins avoid it.Also there is no restriction among hindus about eating halal meat or kosher meat or jhatka meat.Sikhs though cant eat halal food and hence Punjab is an exception.

    They consume Jhatka meat.It means that the head is to be severed in a "Jhatka" that is in a single stroke.I think thats just opposite of the Halal.Its a religious thing for them.

    Its a mix of kebabs(Chicken/mutton/egg/fish/prawn) with some kind of house sauce,which is finger licking good.

    Doubt he can do it.India exports a lot of beef as well.But TBH i would like certain restrictions on cow slaughter.These days people steal other's cows/calves etc and slaughter them.If 85% of a country have problems with this why not regulate the thing.Allow people to raise cows on farms where they will be exclusively used for meat,dont allow slaughter of domesticated cows.
