Really Nice Meal

We came here for a special date night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food didn't wow we, but maybe I just chose the wrong thing, but it was very nice. Maybe a little overpriced. The rice that is served with the Lamb Kebabs was very fragrant and rich and not for me (or my stomach) but the atmosphere... read more

Came with colleagues for a business dinner on a Tuesday night. There were still enough diners to give a good ambience. We were seated at a round table which I found very inclusive for a small group. Service was good but not excellent - our wine was topped up but we had to remind the waiter about other drinks we'd... More

Not many places in Manchester where you can sit on an outside terrace in winter on a very rainy day! Terrace is very warm...too warm with the heaters which do relflect an annoying red light but hey, can't have everything. They even have blankets if you prefer. This is one of the first contemporary restaurants that opened many years ago... More

Cane here for my boyfriends birthday last night. Sadly they had ran out of lobster. But that's not surprising on a Sunday. He ordered the roast beef instead and was given a complimentary glass of prosecco so that was fine! Very good location and excellent bar outside for a few drinks outside afterwards. Brilliant deal for 50% off food in... More
