Dhanak Deira Bolton

If you’re ever near Bolton and want halal Chinese with a twist of Indian flavours then this is the place to go, it’s just before the Asda on Blackburn road on your right. I thought I’d give it a go since I kept seeing Amir Khan uploading snap chats whilst he was there. Yes, the first thing that comes to your mind is ‘oh it’s going to be expensive’ it’s actually quite reasonable not overly priced at all.

Apart from the food, I love this wall decor with the Arabic calligraphy, something I’ve not seen at a restaurant before!

I love the interiors of this place, it wasn’t ย busy when we went, it was nice and quite and even it was busy, it wouldn’t be an issue because it’s quite spacious inside, so you’re not clashing with the people sat next to you. You could go here for any occasion and make it special. All the tables were nicely laid out with napkins, candles and a rose.

The staff were nice and friendly, which is always a bonus. We were in a rush so the waiter tried to bring the food for us as soon as possible and even had a laugh with us.

For starters we ordered popadums, Fish Pakoras and Kebabs. I’m not really fond of Fish Pakoras so I don’t know how they tasted but friends did say they were nice. The popadums were really oily ย but when my friends husband asked for some tissue to wipe the oil away, the waitress went and got some more. So all happy bellies!

For the mains we ordered Chicken Manchurian with noodles and Lamb Karahi with I think it was Tandoor roti or naan. The Manchurian tasted really nice, it was spicey so if you don’t like your food spicey I suggest you ask them to change the heat for you.

The mocktails were slightly pricey compared to other restaurants I’ve been to, even Zouk’s is a tad cheaper but they tasted nice so not moaning. You can ask them to change the ingredients to them, I know we did for the tropical daiquiri. They happily did this for us.

I would defiantly go there again and thanks to the friendly staff for the nice time there, and not forgetting the waiter that gave me lolly in the end incase I cried because my friends daughter got one and I didn’t ๐Ÿ˜‚

Archies Shakes and Burgers

I love this place, I blame uni life for this. It was right opposite my campus so I used to go there few times in a month ๐Ÿ™ˆ. They have a few branches across UK, I go to the one on Oxford road opposite MMU All Saints Campus.

This place gets an all thumbs up for me. It can be busy at times and queues can be long, the longest I’ve had to wait for my food is 15 minutes. In summer I love their shakes ๐Ÿ˜

it’s all about the million dollar shake, ferroe rocher, strawberries and cream. The pics below are from the 29th December 2015, didn’t know I would blog a review for this so my burger picture isn’t all that.

I loved the lady that served us she explained all the burgers properly to me, they’ve changed the menu ๐Ÿ˜“ and it’s been a while since I last visited Archies.

I always get the usual cheese burger with curly fries. Partner got chicken burger with Cheetos, doesn’t sound nice but it tasted really nice the Cheetos crisps gave a nice kick to the burger. He also got sweet potato fries, I’m not a fan of sweet potatoes but apparently according to him they were nice.

imageimageThe above above probably lost it with me when explaining the burgers to me, I’m fussy my royal cheese burger has chilli con carne in it and I can’t eat mince from anywhere but home.๐Ÿ™ˆ lady took over haha

They’ve introduced this new thing called shake, dip and go I think that’s right. Basically you choose any milkshake, you get a 1/4 of a waffle for 99p extra and you dip it in your shake and eat. I love waffles so had to give this a go.

usual million dollar shake.

Had to eat in the car, had to be a work this was a lunch treat.

If you do go here don’t forget to try their cookie waffle out. It’s amazing. This an old picture but had to upload it. I have so many Archie burger pictures on my phone ๐Ÿ˜‚
