Description: Bistro West 156 restaurant is a shining star in the thriving restaurant scene on Burton Road in Manchester���s West Didsbury, a quirky corner that���s a foodie heaven not all that far from where the M60 and the M56 part company. Bistro West 156���s pocket-friendly traditional cooking cuts out all the malarkey to deliver modern British cuisine, the real food that loyal fans adore. The rustic dining room with its granite topped tables, blackboard specials and changing local art displays sets a relaxed tone for easy lunches and suppers. While the food may be fine dining level, the ambience is bistro informal from terrific breakfasts right through to the last sip of dessert wine. Everything is homemade, and customer favourites include superbly cooked comfort classics like fish pie, chicken Kiev and Bistro West 156���s very own melting chocolate pudding. You will succumb. The warm welcome and tables outside entice you to linger.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Can't rate this highly enough - the food was just amazing & very generous portions. The midweek special is fantastic value with everything cooked to perfection. Service was great...food arrived really quickly. Unpretentious & lots of choices. Nice people too...you simply have to go!

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Great food and service, salt and pepper squid to start is a must! On a very popular road with plenty of competition put this to the top of the list!

“Bistro loveliness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We popped in for lunch and were reminded just how fabulous this place is. I had a bistro salad with bacon, croutons and poached eggs with a garlic dressing and it was delicious! As good as a memorable similar salad I had in a great restaurant in Paris.

Relaxed, very friendly service creates a comfortable environment and fresh, cooked to order food is a welcome change from the restaurant chains springing up throughout Didsbury.

Great value too.
