Khan Ba Ba markets itself as Manchester's premium Indian restaurant. It was founded by two immigrant brothers who wanted to recreate the dishes from their childhood in Pakistan. The restaurant is named after their father, whose inspiration and ethos is used everyday at Khan Ba Ba. The highly trained and experienced chefs use a mixture of traditional methods and modern techniques, together with the freshest ingredients, to cook their delicious curries - dishes that have been around for centuries. Khan Ba Ba has a traditional oval-shaped clay Tandoor oven, which is used to bake their own bread and Tandoori dishes. They also have a 7 foot long charcoal grill that is used to prepare kebabs fresh to order. Other traditional cooking systems that are employed in the kitchen are a degh pot and a tawa taka tak, both of which have been used in the cooking of South Asian cuisine for centuries. The kitchen is open-plan, which means that diners can watch meals being prepared. Khan Ba Ba is open 7 days a week, from 4pm until 11pm, with last orders being taken at 10pm. The restaurant offers discounts for those employed in the emergency services, and also to those who work for the NHS. Every Tuesday is 2-for-1 night, which means that the cheapest main meal that is ordered is free.
