We visited here last Saturday and so glad we booked! We had to queue on the stairs that led downstairs for a wee while before a member of staff asked if anyone had booked and we were quickly shown to a table. Unfortunately we were a table of four given a large round table for eight.
The food is amazing. I'm vegetarian and I've never been so spoilt for choice, the selection was the best I've ever seen for a Chinese restaurant. It was really refreshing to see things on the menu I'd never been able to try before. It goes to show that with a bit of imagination and effort vegetarians can enjoy a great meal too.
The place was really busy when we went in at 8.30pm and really noisy. I felt like our table got passed by the staff as they rushed past to other tables but the food more than made up for it.
Two courses for four people including two rounds of drinks came to £80... Fantastic value for the best Chinese we've ever had. Will definetly be back next time we're down in Manchester.
