I am gobsmacked to read some of the poor reveiws. I have used Maniks for some years and have never had a bad meal. Had a meal with my wife 2 days ago it was great. Nice starter, great signature curry and service and being...a BYO was good value. I always ifnd if you ask for something to be changed or slightly hotter or Mild they accomodate. You may say I must be easily pleased but trust me I eat out at numerous places a lot and still return to Maniks for my good local curry!More

Chicken had an odd taste, spat it out after one bite. Curry was bland, salad was very poor. You can tell the cooks put no love into the cooking. I suspect poor hygiene? frozen meat? Something isn’t right here. The taste is so unpleasant. Overall,...quite disgusting and never seen so much purchased takeaway in the bin.More

I do not like leaving negative reviews but feel compelled to do so because the food was of such poor quality. The Thai red curry was watery and flavourless. A quick search of the word “watery” in the reviews reveals that my experience was not...unique. I would be ashamed to serve that food to my family at home, let alone if I owned a restaurant. I don’t know how this restaurant survives when it produces such bad food. Don’t recommend and we won’t get takeaway from here again.More

Most of the Thai food options were off and there were no fish options, so we when for the Indian dishes. They were OK but nothing out of the ordinary. Between the 3 of us we had a Scotch Bonet Curry, Chicken Tikka Masala, and...a Dhansak. A takeaway dahl side fish was cold and congealed. The highlight was a very decent peshwari naan. Not cheep.More

The choice of Indian restaurants in Bristol is vast and the competition fierce to standout you have to be especially good or offer something alternative , the food from maniks is decent and im sure if your local to the restaurant could be a nice...quick option, however the food does not stand out the service is average and the price point is not the cheapest overall an average experience , i think with the Thai mixed menu they have lost the authentic Indian restaurant and the quality of food suffers because of it. Room for improvementMore

Having had an awful take away in March thought we would give this one more chance , big mistake. By far the worst Thai food ever , tried this green curry and a pad thai both the worst ever, both just the taste of lemon...grass and vile cheap nasty chicken. To be avoidedMore

Ordered from here many times before and enjoyed it, however just received the most pathetic excuse of a meal I’ve ever seen. Ordered red Thai curry and got some sort of seafood in a orange watery oil mix (not eating it wouldn’t feed it to...my dog),Chicken satay with no sauce, bland microwaved pad Thai and dry flavourless onion bhajis... tried calling for a refund but they won’t answer. The most foul smelling and tasting food I’ve ever tried to eat.. joke of a restaurant Picture below of the “red Thai chicken curry”More

Ordered and within 20 minutes and it was with me which is suspicious enough. Opened up the dishes to watered down meals, crushed up poppadoms and flavourless curries. Honestly the worst takeaway I’ve ever had, hence the review. Rung the restaurant to try and sort...something but she couldn’t care less and when she sensed it was a complaint said she has someone else on the line. Luckily just eat could give me 70% of my money back, AVOID this place at all costs.More
