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.

Reliably good

I've been to Ning a number of times now and it's always a very good standard that you can rely on. I particularly love how well they cater for dietary requirements. (Vegan options, gluten and nut allergy options all clearly labelled.) Today's visit was worth noting as we were a table of eight... read more

I visit Ning for a romantic dinner with my partner. As soon as we arrived the manager asked us to wait for 10 minutes because they were really busy, however, he offered us 2 glasses of a lovely wine as a thanks for our patience which I found really nice. The food was fantastic and the people that are working... More

Located close to the Frog and Bucket Comedy Club is Ning's restaurant on Oldham Street. I dined with a couple of friends for dinner. All started very well. Good service upon entry when we were shown to our table. The restaurant was nice and clean and soon started to fill up with customers, so much so that a sign had... More

Visited Ning for the first time tonight. I'd heard of the restaurant for a long time but had never got round to going before. Great food and excellent service. My only complaint would be that the restaurant is a little bit too small and the tables are too close together. But the food is really good. Well worth a visit... More

When to Ning as the food was great last time. I didn't particularly enjoy my dish which is unusual as I love any kind of noodles. My friend on the other hand loved her food. Service was not exceptional (there was a mishap with the drinks) however thankful as they put it on the house. Atmosphere was nice and the... More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute table here last night - and we were not disappointed. The friendly staff were so willing to offer guidance on the great menu - and the choice of drinks was great too (I can personally recommend the chilli mojito). We chose off the set price menu and were very happy with... More

We arrived on time for our reservation, and despite a 75% empty restaurant were instructed to go to the waiting area, with no explanation for this strange request. After about 10 minutes we were led to our table, where we waited, and waited.......and after about 15 minutes finally had our drink order taken. Another 10-15 minutes later the order arrived....but... More
