Great value meal with brilliant staff

We visited Giraffe prior to going to the Manchester Opera House. We took advantage of the fixed price menu £10.95 for two courses, choices were limited only 4 starters and 4 main courses but the food was excellent. I had the fried whitebait and followed by the salmon and haddock fishcake both were... read more

We ate here in a Saturday. It was quietish (normally busy in the week). The staff are very very welcoming & efficient - 10/10 to them. The food was great too - kids burger, steak sandwich (great sauce), nice soup and lovely dry fries (potato & sweet potato). A notch above usual lunch fare. We might be harsh - it... More

Visited with family and friends and all had a great meal. Children's menu is well priced with a wide selection of food available. For adults the duck stir fry comes highly recommended.

The food was ok and the service was good but this restaurant is overpriced for the quality of food served. They also add a 10% service charge to your bill so be aware. We visited on a Good Friday evening and it was very quiet maybe the pricing and quality are to blame

We went in on a Friday and I will say it was quite quiet but judging from other chains and the food we ate, don't judge this as a negative thing. All three of us ate starters mains and had cocktails, all of which were just gorgeous. I had the chicken dumplings which were a great starter, and for our... More

Having failed to get a reservation at a few of the "smarter" restaurants we ended up getting a table at Giraffe in Spinningfields. Result. Friendly faces and smiles when we arrive, attentive staff, great food and a great experience all round. I recommend it - straightforward efficient and friednly service from a group of young guys and gals who were... More

Popped in for lunch on a Friday, was greeted straight away by a super polite waitress and was never left waiting. Everyone working there seemed happy to be there and were knowledgable about products. Over all great lunch time :)

My kids love Giraffe and so do I, we are all vegetarian and there is always something on the menu we all like, a rare occurrence! The restaurant was a little hard to find as the location on Giraffe's website was inaccurate. The restaurant itself when we got there was really nice, the atmosphere was good too. There was a...
