A TRUE DINING DESTINATION
Shere Khan first opened its doors in 1987 and was the first fully licensed Indian restaurant
on the now famed “Curry Mile” in Rusholme.
Shere Khan helped create a new generation of Indian eateries by combining modern design with traditional Indian tastes.
In the past 25 years Shere Khan’s brand has grown and we have sites in the Trafford Centre and Meadowhall, as well as our flagship restaurant.
ESTABLISHED IN 1987, SHERE KHAN WAS THE FIRST RESTAURANT OF ITS KIND ON WILMSLOW ROAD IN RUSHOLME.
25 years on, we are regarded as a pioneer of Manchester’s curry scene. Following a full refurbishment back in 2007, we updated our menu to a more traditional format. We incorporated dishes such as Lamb Hyderabadi Biryani and Lamb Nehari, alongside classic dishes such as Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Rogan Josh.
The updated layout of the restaurant enables us to cater well for group bookings – we can comfortably hold a party of up to a 100 on any given night.
We use only the best cuts of Halal meat, fresh local vegetables and selected herbs and spices to ensure our food consistently impresses. Our breads are cooked fresh on site and the open kitchen enables our customers to see our busy working environment.
Shere Khan prides itself on its customer service and the quality of its food. We will always endeavour to meet, and indeed exceed, your expectations.
