Nice Mother's Day tea

Visited on Mother's Day evening as we wanted something good to eat without crowds or a restrictive (and likely overpriced) set menu. Food and service very good. Our youngest loves spicy food and the waiter brought him his own plate of prawn crackers with sweet chilli sauce. We had a nice time and... read more

Visited the Trafford Centre on Saturday evening – it was as busy as Christmas! Tampopo seemed to be the only restaurant without a queue so we thought we’d give it a go. We were seated straight away and served for drinks really quickly. We ordered some Thai prawn crackers whilst we waited which were nice and tasty. Myself and my... More

The menu is a trip round the Pacific rim. The dishes are excellent, with a wide range of national cuisines.

Tampopo has been a firm favourite for many years starting at the sadly closed Leeds branch (please bring it back). The finest Gyoza in England are a must. Fast, fresh and healthy its a great restaurant. Don't forget to kick off with the proper prawn crackers.

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 five star.... 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
