This restaurant is amazing and this Saturday (30th November) was no exception. I booked a table for 8 people with friends. I never go to Manchester without visiting this place. The staff are always friendly here and the food is nothing less than 10/10. For me, no other Chinese restaurance compares to this. Thanks again for a great experience!

Street presence is virtually nil, and you wouldn't spend time in the basement dining room to pick up design ideas, but the food is really good (the dumplings are to die for), with very fresh flavours and ingredients, and the service is polite and friendly. Recommended.

Went as a part of a couple. Unable to book but it wasn't too busy. Decor was nice and created a good atmosphere. Food was alright, nothing amazing, just your standard Chinese restaurant.

Turned up on a busy pre-Christmas evening while the markets were on and although they were busy, we managed to secure a table on the understanding that we would be out in an hour and a half when it was required for a prior booking. Happy to comply as we weren't intending to take that long. We then sat down and worked our way through one of their set meals with accompanying drinks. The food never disappoints and the service was very attentive throughout despite there being a full restaurant. A lot of places could learn from this.

I had booked this restaurant for my husbands 50 birthday party 3 weeks before our visit on arrival the place is cramped with far too many people and tables. Working in health and safety this presents a fire risk as you our jammed like sardines. The manager did not acknowledge our booking and led us to a cramped table she had made up which could not fit toddlers at let alone adults and when I complained she just laughed and skirted at us to other guests. We were humiliated and on examining the food that reached tables, people were complaining it was cold.We left and chanced Little Yang Sing which shows how a professional Chinese should run and was clean and the food amazing. Donot visit The Rice bowl ,go to Chinatown. !!!
