Went with friends for lunch. They had visited the place once before and had recommended and I must say that their recommendation was spot on. From arrival to departure we were treated with good service (and humour), the rather complicated menu was explained in some detail, and the food, both in presentation and in substance, would have passed any test!...

Order the Thai duck with green papaya salad but given duck with bean sprout salad. Pulling the wool over customers eyes instead off being honest is a big no no in my books. ENOUGH SAID.

Good afternoon I feel the need to send this message after a very unusual and uncomfortable dining experience with you at 1245 Thursday 20 October. I dined with a business colleague of mine from Hong Kong where I used to live. I brought my old colleague to Australasia as I have dined there many times and always had a fantastic... More

It's a tricky place to find, but make sure you do. Do not have a bad word to say. Nice, easy going staff, the interior is quirky but cool. Most importantly though, the food is fantastic! As are the cocktails! Go for the local menu (several dishes) to experience it all. Try leave room for the chocolate dome desert too!... More

Place seems to be quitr popular among the hip and cool crowd. Stylish milieu and friendly service, although a bit impersonal. Very good cocktails and quite OK food - but I probably would not go here if I were paying the bill myself. Not enough bang for the buck, at least what comes to the food.

Great place to be together to celebrate a uni graduation. Attentive, efficient service; civilised, chilled atmosphere and amazing, delicious food. Dessert was total heaven and mojitos the best in town

Whenever I go to Manchester it is always a last minute decision so we can never get a table to eat which is indicative of a great restaurant, the food always smells lovely. Hidden away under spinningfields this is a lovely place to grab a cocktail and relax. Great cocktail menu and a lovely bar to relax in. Bar staff... More
