Just had an excellent lunch here, pate then smoked haddock, all delicious and beautifully prepared. Popular with a very local clientele. Noise was my only criticism (lots of hard surfaces) but otherwise excellent.

Looked at this place on trip advisor and decided to try. This place did not disappoint, the service was superb but the food was exceptional. The bistro salad is too die for. Would recommend highly.

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.
