After a lot of disappointing restaurant experiences lately we chose the TNQ on the strength of its inclusion in the Good Food Guide. This place deserves its GFG listing. We were a bit surprised that it wasn't full on a Saturday night. Our starters of crab lasagne and pigeon were classy and tasty. Fish mains had plenty of flavour and... More

Great food. Interesting innovative cooking without gimmicks. Sea bass ceviche to start (with chilli popcorn). Then lemon and feta filo parcels. Supper type dishes served with informal professionalism. Just right.

Visited this place for the first time on Sunday after being recommended by M-Dog Manchester (follow him on facebook for latest deals and independent reviews!) and was not disappointed. We all took advantage of their Sunday dinner menu (2 courses for 13.95). I have to say both the food and relaxed/informal service were fantastic. I will be definitely be back... More

Good service but too small a table for 3 people & all our food. Based in Manchesters version that is akin to Londons Camden the Northern Quarter offers some quirky spots. Here the food is decent & the atmosphere is pleasant. Not the best but by far not the worst. Worth trying again.

I visited last Tuesday afternoon and sat outside. The gentleman serving was very pleasant, knowledgeable and proficient. I'm pretty sure he was doing inside and outside by himself but he didn't leave us waiting or wanting for anything. He also had a great memory for the bottled beers and desserts. The food was nice and as a vegetarian, although I... More

Quality Sunday lunch was had. We ate late on Sunday afternoon , 17:30, and the restaurant was practically empty so no real ambiance and due to the acoustics of the room I can imagine it to be very noisy when full. This is the first time I have been and would definitely go again

Called in at TNQ for lunch after coming across it on a visit to the Northern Quarter. The numerous stickers in the window from Trip Advisor, Michelin and Hardens were what swung the decision. We were the first in at 12noon and the staff were most welcoming. The menu looked super and we order three different main dishes. My son... More

Had lunch here last week from the two course lunch menu. For the main course I had the chicken and mushroom pie. The pie was excellent, beautiful pastry and the filling was fabulous. I ordered the sticky toffee pudding for dessert but this was not up to the same standard. The pudding was really solid, just like a hard slab... More
