Great lunch, authentic Szhechuan

We stopped by for lunch yesterday and had a great meal. We ordered from the lunch menu, the cold chicken starter, on the bone in a spicy sauce very nice. Hot poached beef and Mrs spottys beancurd, with a painter chicken- all good and tasty. The main dishes are all £6.50 and slightly smaller in... read more

I had been searching for a more authentic Chinese restaurant than the classic chicken chow mein and beef and black pepper that you find everywhere. And this Red Chilli ended my search. The menu is in Chinese and English and it had many dishes to chose from. I'd been looking for a specific potato, green pepper and aubergine dish which... More

We were keen to visit especially as it is under threat of closure since and the restaurant which is part of a chain was in administration. Even though the subject of local publicity, this was not confirmed or acknowledged by the staff. However the standards appear to have fallen considerably. The noodles were over cooked, possibly inferior quality and covered... More

I absolutely love this place, the food is so amazing. I usually order the same thing from the menu (dumplings, pork buns, crispy chicken, rice) just because they are my favourite dishes and they never disappoint. I usually like to explore different restaurants but Red Chilli is the place I always return to because I find myself craving it every... More

My food was the last to arrive and was lukewarm. The waitress told me the wrong dish name, so I queried it and was told it was the beancurd I'd ordered. What I thought was chopped nuts turned out to be meat and one of the other staff ran over to tell me I'd been given the non-vegetarian version by... More

We were looking forward to this visit as a change from the ubiquitous Cantonese cuisine but were disappointed. The restaurant itself needs some refurbishment, the carpet needed cleaning and was sticky in some areas. The food could have been so much better. The salt and pepper baby squid were well seasoned but the oil in which they were cooked needed... More

This is the best and most authentic Peking food in Manchester. Every dish is beautifully prepared, with crispy textures, salty, sour and chilli coatings providing memorable dishes from starters to main. Highlights include the Beijing Duck, sesame prawn toast, the aromatic crispy prawns in hot and sour sauce and the variety of tangy chicken dishes, including Painter, chicken with peanuts... More

Loved our evening out here. Busy and fresh food. Service was very attentive and prompt. Loved the duck starter which was reserved for us as it tends to get sold out. For main course loved the sticky lamb dish. The fried eel was just ok, could have been stir fried better. Overall loved the food there. Been many years since... More
