What a great evening we had in Ning. The atmosphere, customer service and food was great. Ning isn't a big restaurant but it was fully booked. There is an extensive menu with a diverse choice for the vegan vegetarian and the omnivores. The starters were excellent - my friend had the chicken skewers and I had the beansprout fritters which...

Very very average. There are a lot of great reviews of Ning on trip advisor so i was massively let down. The food did not come close to my expectations and we would not return. Starter roti canai, fish cakes and chicken pancake ( murtabak ). All items seriously lacked flavour, they were greasy, stodgy and the fish cakes didnt... More

Hi Dave E, Thank you for your review! It is always great to know that you enjoy your dining experience with us! However, we are sorry about the crab, it is one of our favourite starters so it usually sold out pretty quick. Hopefully on your next visit you'll be able to enjoy it!

We had a meal here taking advantage of the third off offer: 5-6pm if you vacate the table by 7pm. The food was average, I've eaten much better Thai food elsewhere. When the bill came they hadn't taken off the discount, the time on the receipt said 19:01 which was really sneaky as it was quarter to. We wont be... More

Visited here on a busy Saturday night. The staff were very attentive. The place is lovely inside and the menu is great. Plenty of vegan options which is great to see. I asked if it was possible to make the the Pad Thai vegan, as it contains eggs usually, they did this for me without hesitation. The meals were Delicious,... More

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. This Northern Quarter venue offers a bustling ambience somewhere between trendy canteen and chic bistro. With polished wood tables, voguish floral patterned wallpaper and candlelit tables, the interior strikes a similar balance of fashionable buzz meets classy intimacy. Award-winning, the predominately authentic Malaysian menu also offers Thai and fusion dishes, all made with fresh ingredients, free from added MSG. Ning's accomplished 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.
