5 Adults had the set lunch menu plus soft drinks and china tea for £45..
Prawn crackers, then chicken and sweet corn soup or mushroom pastry plus 5 generous main dishes (sweet and sour chicken, satay, singapore vermicelli, chicken curry and chicken with broccoli) Then a small portion of fruit.
Pleasant surroundings, excellent value, great service, delicious freshly cooked food.
We have eaten here many times before (used to come for lunch when it was 'The Little Village') and have never had a bad meal.
Sure there are fancier more 'true' chinese restaurants in Manchester but you really can't beat The Rice Bowl for value, quality and service.

Off the beaten track so far as Chinese restaurants go but what a gem! The Rice Bowl has been consistently excellent for many years. My first meal there was in the 80s and the food now is at least as good as it was then. The set banquet at £17.95pp is stunning value for money. Everything tastes freshly made and the amount is just right for a hungry couple.
