Great tasting food but served cold and small portions - poor value

Three of us dined at lunch and I wasn't overly impressed. Its no longer good value for money. It's been some time since I last visited. The food was tasty enough (I asked for extra fresh basil with my chicken fried rice main, and got it, which helped) and if taste was the only criteria it would be... read more

Loved the food here, it was a great menu, lots of selection for those wanting to try a flavour of the East! Vietnamese, Thai, Korean, Japanese.. They're all on the menu! Don't pass up the sharing platter starter, it's amazing! Great quality food and the staff are very good too. If you're visiting the Trafford Centre then you should go... More

I really enjoy the food here. Went on Sunday night and got seated quickly. Never been disappointed. The menu has a large variety and so what ever you are in the mood for they cater for.

We dropped in here on the off chance whilst waiting for our film to start. This turned out to be a great decision as there was a huge variety of dishes which were not the norm. We had a couple of tasters and had the delicious soups which are exceptional and tasty. All together a great meal quickly cooked, professionally... More

We have eaten here many times, and have always had good food and service. Lots of unusual dishes from all over Asia, from Thai to strange stuff like Korean. If you like oriental foods then give it a go, lots of spicy and none spicy options and well priced aswell for what you get!

If you enjoy your noodle and rice dishes, this place is for you, and the spicy crackers with chilli dip for starter is so yummy I always want more. Food from Thailand, Brunei, Vietnam, Singapore, if you enjoy dishes from these countries you will not be disappointed. Such mouth watering dishes, East Asia based curries, stir fries and soups.

Having visited a number of Tampopo's at various different locations and have always left satisfied. This, sadly, was not the case at this branch. I ordered the Laksa (like I always do). Although the food arrived promptly it was cold and a smaller portion than some of the other Tampopo's around Manchester. The price however was the same. My friend... More

Great tasting food. I am a repeat customer after a few Years. Their food is still tasty (I always have the thai green curry with rice). The prices, however, are slightly high with a dish costing over £12. Friendly staff and quick service. We have a baby, so the staff member who seated us was very helpful and made space... More
