First time

The food here is really different and really tasty. Nothing is too spicy, and the 2 course deal is more than enough for one person. The desserts were really nice and the the Tarik is recommended!!!

First time for Malaysian food and very pleased we choose Ning for the experience . Extremely helpful and friendly staff serving very tasty vegetarian options. My particular favourites were a range of starters which included spring rolls, street food and a flat bread with curry dip. Three lovely main courses all washed down with a fine and reasonable priced Shiraz... More

After living in Malaysia for many years we were excited when our son booked this for dinner. The decor is nothing to write home about, but the food could not be faulted. The rotis were so good that we ordered more at the end if our meal. Every dish was excellent and spicing was just right. Service was very good.... More

This Malaysian restaurant was recommended by my daughter and we were really pleased by the food and staff, who were very friendly. As it was Eid, they had a special menu for that as well as the A la carte,which had great choices. There were families and couples, so nice atmosphere. What drew us was the 40% discount on food...

Firstly I'm a huge Norman Musa fan, so a trip to Manchester we were very excited to book into Ning Restaurant. My partner studied the online menu several times and planned what she was eating weeks before! So first impression, I was disappointed with the restaurant. High ceiling, square room with a fire exit doors restricting the layout of the... More

I had a 2 course deal and was nice. as a starters I took "calamari" that were very well presented but a bit unseasoned, anyway with the deep spicy sauce happened the miracle. As a main course I had "gulai" and jasmine rice...I enjoyed only the sauce because the prawn were a bit chewy but the mix of taste was... More

Good Curry, quite a small restaurant booking may be a good idea, we ate early it was quiet to start with but soon filled up.

Attended this restaurant as part of a birthday celebration with a group of 23 people. The service was brilliant and the food was absolutely lovely. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we'll be back soon :)

The first thing I noticed was that the staff was very friendly and attentive. I ordered the Thai Fish Cakes and the Gulai curry with prawns and jasmine rice. Both meals were excellent and served in reasonable portions. There pricing was alright, at least compared to a Switzerland standard. I'd definitely visit Ning again in case I come back to... More

Description

Manchester might be awash with slick dining outfits but none quite like Ning. Unlike many others, Ning values subtlety and sophistication both in its style and its cuisine. Influenced by the noodle bars of Asia's cities, this Northern Quarter venue offers a bustling ambience somewhere between trendy canteen and chichi bistro. With polished wood tables, voguish floral patterned wallpaper and candlelit tables, the interior strikes a similar balance of fashionable buzz meets classy intimacy. Led by award-winning celebrity Malaysian chef Norman Musa, the predominately authentic Malaysian menu also offers Thai and fusion dishes, all made with fresh ingredients, free from MSG. Ning's chefs pride themselves on producing a concise menu of carefully selected and well cooked dishes, and service is attentive without being over-bearing. Malaysian hospitality and food.
