It has a great atmosphere, amazing tasty fresh food (the sushi is scrummy) and delicious cocktails, all serviced by professional, knowledgeable staff with a smile.

This place is obviously very popular with the young, affluent set in Manchester. We ate there on Saturday evening, taking 2 business friends out to dinner. This is the second visit for me. There is a real buzz about the place and the food is excellent, however the music is just too loud and all 4 of us commented afterwards... More

We celebrated a family birthday at the restaurant having only been able to book a later dining time. The restaurant is achingly fashionable, DJ with electronic turntable, lots of beautiful people serving (and a few not so beautiful dining). We arrived half an hour early, which was useful as it too that long to get a drink at the bar.... More

Apparently on a Sunday evening before 5 pm, with a clearly empty house, you need reservations to eat here. I could believe that at 6 pm - it would be a stretch, but I COULD believe it, in theory - that the house would fill to the brim, but you think they could have served us from 4:45 to 6... More

Nice atmosphere, good service, but we paid £265 for a meal for 4 people. The truth is that we've had better meals for £30 a head. The food was not bad, it was just very average and not worth the money. You pay for the location, for the atmosphere and if you're happy with that then you can have a... More

I love this place it is really modern and funky and the food is delicious! The service is second to none and yet also really chilled out, so you feel comfortable too! I also don't think it's particularly expensive , for 3 courses (2 of us) a bottle of wine and a cocktail I think I paid 125 pounds ,... More

Awful- I just wish the people who work here could pay more attention to the customer than themselves or their phones. I vowed never to come back here after my last visit, this time I never will- there are far too many alternatives in Manchester to have to suffer the attitude of the staff that greet you (replace the word...

We all went out for a meal and cocktails. The cocktails were outstanding - very fresh and clean, just delicious. Very moreish! The food was superb. It was beautifully presented and the flavours were outstanding. We were very lucky to have a superb waiter who was funny, knowledgeable and very on the ball. He was thoroughly entertaining and made us... More
