Wow wow wow! This place is incredible. From start to finish my friend and I had an amazing time. From the service to the decor and the delicious food, we would come back here in a heartbeat. The decor is mesmerising, the tree is something...else! The staff were friendly and attentive and we felt valued as diners. The food was mouthwatering. We had the tasting menu for £49.95 each which included 4 courses ranging from seaweed, duck spring rolls, sea bass, barbecued chicken, jasmine rise and banana fritters. Each dish was beautifully presented and there was a good amount of time between each course. Each course was explained to us and waited checked if we were happy with the food. The drinks were excellent too and reasonably priced We booked 3 months in advance for a Thursday night booking, even on weekdays it was packed. Understandably! Definitely a must go to if you’re in Manchester! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

The menu may have changed slightly, but the food was excellent once again. In fact, it reminds us why we keep returning ... and that maybe we should come back more frequently! The caramel soy fillet steak is a must, but I will add the...crispy monkfish to this now, and although on this occasion I only had one lot of dim sum, we have tried various dim sum on previous visits and they are sublime. The ambience is excellent, and it must be one of the most vibrant places to eat in Manchester. If I were going to be really picky, I would have to say that on previous visits we've been treated to projected images of dragons over the wall near the upstairs serving hatch and it honestly blew us away the first time we ate here. That seems to have been dramatically toned down to some sort of crap snowy effect. I don't care much for the change, but it absolutely does not put us off wanting to return. Food, service, and atmosphere all excellent.More

Anniversary dinner this evening. I had heard a lot of good things about this place, so my expectations were high. Good ambience and waitress who served us was lovely, but that's where the positives end. The food was not great, in fact the angry bird...wok chicken was awful and drenched in five spice powder - I would go so far as to say it was inedible. I felt the rest of the food was far too salty, and frankly average. If you want to go to the place where all the beautiful people hang out, this is it, but if you want decent oriental food head to Chinatown.More

Our good friends booked this for a night out as we hadn't seen them for 5 months. It was a table for 4 at 830pm. We last visited this place about 4 years ago and can't really remember much about it. The age group of...our party was 42 to 54 who are used to paying good money for good food.We eat at a number of high quality restaurants in Manchester including The Bull and Bear,TNQ, 63 and many more. The service provided by our waitress,who shall remain nameless was average at best.My wife asked if the chilli could be removed from the chicken dishes but was met with "We don't change dishes ". No alternative offered and my wife ended up waiting 20 minutes for an underwhelming salmon sashimi that was removed from the bill at our request. Clearly the market Tattu are successfully targeting are 18-25 year olds who like ridiculously loud music whilst eating average food no better than the level of a Chinese takeaway. This restaurant is overpriced and doesn't know if its a bar,nightclub or restaurant. My wife has complained separately to the management by email this morning. Lets see if a response is forthcoming.More

Really, really expensive and yet really, really average. I’ve been a few times recently and all the times I was disappointed. The food isn’t anything special. It’s like a better, fresher standard of Chinese take away style restaurant. I had most of the chicken dishes...and found them startlingly bland, but certainly not bad. The fillet steak and duck was a little better but definitely not worth the eye-watering prices. You are crammed in very, tight which I didn’t like as some of the clientele are a little ‘posey’, which is me being as charitable as possible. A mixed crowd for sure. The atmosphere, energy and vibe has definitely lost much of its magic from yesteryear and the venue is looking a little tired and worn out. I think they’ll find it hard to recover the special momentum it once had. Service was fairly good, but also hit and miss. Still maybe worth a visit but be forewarned of the style over substance! Left disappointed, but not bitterly so !More

Can’t fault it at all!! Edwin was super on it from start to finish! His attention to detail was outstanding, he wasn’t pushy at all but on it, simple things as soon as our water ran out I turned to try find him and he...was there with the jug! He noticed my husbands drink hadn’t arrived and it then arrived no more than 2 mins later! The overall atmosphere was perfect and the food was just beyond what we could imagine! It’s our new favourite place to eat and will be recommending for sure!More
