Amazing taste and authentic food for oriental cuisine lovers. Can't be enough of going there and having those starters and mains, nice drinks served. It's just that they don't have any special dessert.

Seafood was cold. When sent back we received no apology. We were then served the same food warmed up again. Was really concerned regarding food poisoning

The food was rather good here and the service prompt in a busy environment. The serenity of sitting and the back of the restaurant took us away from madness of the Trafford Centre and this was very much appreciated.

We have eaten here multiple times - we like their Thai food and also halal options. The service is usually courteous. Kids are quite welcomed and our 2 year old likes their kids kit even though she's not a big fan of their flavours. Its cozy and quiet towards the inside. Pad thai is a safe option which my wife...

Walking round the trafford centre, unable to decide to eat. We finally decided to eat at Tampopo, being seated - great start and a very friendly waiter who was Pawel.

After order the drinks arrived very quick and food didn't take long either considering how busy it was.
