Description: Bistro West 156 restaurant is a shining star in the thriving restaurant scene on Burton Road in Manchester���s West Didsbury, a quirky corner that���s a foodie heaven not all that far from where the M60 and the M56 part company. Bistro West 156���s pocket-friendly traditional cooking cuts out all the malarkey to deliver modern British cuisine, the real food that loyal fans adore. The rustic dining room with its granite topped tables, blackboard specials and changing local art displays sets a relaxed tone for easy lunches and suppers. While the food may be fine dining level, the ambience is bistro informal from terrific breakfasts right through to the last sip of dessert wine. Everything is homemade, and customer favourites include superbly cooked comfort classics like fish pie, chicken Kiev and Bistro West 156���s very own melting chocolate pudding. You will succumb. The warm welcome and tables outside entice you to linger.

Visited this restaurant with a friend and couldnt fault anything. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We had the midweek dinner menu which is 2 courses for 19.95 or 3 for 24.95. There was a wide choice and we will definitely be returning to sample the other dishes on the menu. Best food I have had in a long time

My fourth visit to this restaurant and the quality of the food never diminishes. Its a small bistro, nothing too fancy with standard furniture and decor. The star (or stars) of Bistro West 156 are undoubtably in the kitchen producing high quality food at a very reasonable price.
Love the place and can't wait to go back.

This is one of my favourite restaurants and we return again and again. Great menu, small and cosy nice romantic atmosphere, fantastic food. The lunch time menu is great value, with the option for fixed specially priced menus. Highly recommended.

Having read some of the reviews I was hopeful, however this is an ordinary small restaurant serving average to good food, depending on your choice. One of us had the good old lamb shank, which had been given a North African twist, the whole dish being spoilt by the sea of yoghourt, why wasn't it served seperate on the side.Stroganoff nice but why with chips?
Nice fish and excellent coffee. Srvice good, but being shop size with hard floor and tables very noisy. Value for money ? average.

We went to this restaurant about 4 weeks ago (table of 7) and I have to say we eat out alot and this was one of the best restarants we have eaten in for a long time.
Food was fab and service excellent. Often on menus there is only 1 dish which I could go for but on their menu I could have eaten nearly every one. It is only small but still lovely, friendly and a good atmosphere. Advise to book early as its small. Almost dont want to submit this review in case I cant get in next time we book !!!
