Perhaps a little too large to retain the atmosphere of the Manchester City centre branch. Portions are also noticeable smaller than at Albert Square. Still the food is very tasty and the staff great.

Since our topic was about far-east food, we decided to get in Tampopo. Great smily waitress rushing off their feet to serve us on the busy Saturday, did not show any hesitation to explain about each dish that we enquired about. It was really pleasant and helpful. However the food was not to the expectation we imagined from her explanation.... More

We chose this restaurant for our after shopping meal. The restaurant was quiet but a lot of staff were mulling around. Menu was small so not much to choose from. I ordered the chicken katsu with a view to having a dessert after, this was a very basic meal and have had better. My husband had a noodle dish with... More

Tampopo has for years been our Trafford Centre restaurant of choice - it has not been without its flaws, but we enjoy it. Last time we set off to go there we were waylaid by the "pile it high and sell it cheap" Thai buffet that was nearby. This time we decided to go back to Tampopo. But now I... More

From a 3 yr old enjoying a birthday treat with his parents and brother to the 'grandparents' it seemed we all got what we wanted from a very varied menu. How authentic the flavours and styles of food were is difficult to qualify but it was served well - a very pleasant waitress - pity her 'senior' who served the... More

Saturday night in the Trafford Centre is always going to be busy, but Tampopo both here and in town has long been a good option for a rapid bite to eat. The food was generally as good as usual, excellent Green papaya Salad and temura prawns but the noodle dish was a bit light on seafood and the broth for... More

If you're at a loss in the Trafford centre, want something quick, reasonably priced and relatively healthy than this is the place for you. We actually come just for the restaurant as it often has special offers. But we also love the fact that there are a number of different cuisines to choose from as well as lovely prawn crackers...
