Went here yesterday at 6pm for a late lunch early dinner! The place was virtually full. The food was excellent as was the service. We had Thais fish cakes to start followed by Prawn with vegetables and ginger and chicken satay and a fried rice - plenty of food for 2. Wine was £20 a bottle for very nice Pinot Grigio. The food bill was more expensive than some of the restaurants in China town but the atmosphere was more sophisticated so worth a bit more.

While not in Chinatown, do not rule out a visit to this lovely restaurant. The food is beautiful and the service outstanding. The steak rolls are different to the ones you've probably had before as they come in a very spicy sauce. They are gorgeous. The food was piping hot and super generous portions. We were well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Another Top Manchester Restaurant...aren't we mancunians so lucky! We will be back, as the man says!

We read the reviews before we visited and we decided that although The Rice Bowl was a good walk from where we were staying we would make the effort. We are so glad that we did as the food was excellent and the service was second to none. We went quite early and had no problem in being seated. However, good word obviously gets around as the place was full in no time. It is busy but that just helps to make the atmosphere and doesn't affect the quality of the food or the service. This one is definitely worth a visit. We will certainly be going again.

I was kept waiting for only 10 mins for my booked table. The food and drink arrived promptly and the quality was very good. Prawn toasts superb, duck lovely and moist. Let down by very cramped conditions and chaos at the front door with hoards of people waiting to be served
