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. The South East Asian fusion menu offers mainly Thai and Malay dishes made with fresh ingredients, free from MSG. Ning’s chefs pride themselves on producing a concise menu of carefully selected and well cooked dishes.

This was a recommendation for a special occasion. We booked some time ago and I'd recommend as the restaurant was busy throughout the evening. Good choice menu and reasonably priced. Service was excellent and staff really helpful. Food was well presented, very tasty and portions excellent. All in all a lovely restaurant and great staff.

I have visited Ning on several occasions and it has become my favourite restaurant to visit for special occasions or as a treat. I love the distinctive smell of Ning as you approach the restaurant outside. The service and standard of food has always been consistant on every visit and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

Went here for a friends birthday dinner and the service is reasonably good. Several complaints including: some of our drinks took a long time to arrive and I asked the waiter for a particular dish but to swap the noodles for a different type. The waiter advised me to swap to a completely different dish because it tasted similar to... More

A friend took me to this place having been a few times before and I was pretty impressed. We went fairly late in the evening but it was still fairly busy. The staff were all really friendly and attentive, happy to explain through the menu for us. We opted for the two course midweek special menu and it was really... More

You're greeted first through a draped entrance before being seated in a very well decorated room. With a range of dishes, I opted to stay with my Malaysian regular dishes....which came warm and with flavour! The chocked satay was soft whilst the beef main dish was the best I have had...better then 2/3 places I have visited in London....One of... More

A variety of south east Asian dishes. Everything I've had here has been delicious. Went in a large group once and service was slow but would still recommend.

We adore Ning. Warm staff, beautiful decadent interior (black with purple orchid feature walls and purple wicker chandeliers). YOU MUST TRY the pad tai. So authentic, warm with nutty crunch, melting chicken and zesty with lime. Also try the rose syrup drink-taste exactly like turkish delight, amazing. NEEDS to be on your Manchester to-do list.
