Every now and then you've just got to treat yourself to a tea out - and it's always great when it doesn't cut too much into your budget. We have some 10/10 recommendations for cheap places to eat out while in Manchester, with meals starting from as little as £6.
This & That
Manchester’s home of rice and three curries. You know it’s going to be delicious when you’re off the beaten track and the interiors are like an Indian dining room experience. Enjoy three veggie curries and rice for £6 and the meat option for no more than £8. If you go anywhere, it needs to be here. Our retail stock coordinator, Niall, loves it here for their authenticity.

Nell's Pizza at Common
We love pizza here at Glass Onion - our second recommendation is a little different to the above... Nell’s Pizza is a New York style pizzeria located in three spots, including the Northern Quarter. Grab a 14” pizza every weekday before 4pm for as little at £7.77 (the angles agree, you’re on the right path).

Almost Famous is the place to go if you’re after a proper good, greasy burger and deliciously cheesy fries.
