Has a vast selection of all sorts of (South) East Asian cuisine. You could easily bring a huge group here and everyone would be able to select something they want to eat. I must say though, of the dishes we tried, the taste wasnt every authentic. However, they were good passable attempts. I guess we could tell by the clientele,... More

We booked Tampopo the night before after deciding on a last minute get away to Manchester on Easter Sunday. All the other restaurants we wanted to go to were fully booked so we were made up when they still had tables at Tampopo available having read the reviews. We walked into the restaurant and my heart sank. The decor was... More

Always try and visit this superb restaurant at the Corn Exchange when in Manchester. Superb Pad Thai, the flavours are awesome, preceded by the excellent spring rolls. The bottles of Tiger remain expensive, but unfortunately are an essential part of the meal for me. Consistently good quality food. Will be back again.

We visited on a Monday night to celebrate my partner's birthday as we've been and loved it many times before, and this was no exception - the service was quick (we were in and out in 40 minutes without ever feeling rushed or pressured) and very friendly, and the food and drinks were amazing. I'm vegetarian and recommend the sweet... More

' Ollly ' served us in a very charming way, the way he pronounced the asian food name was really cute. Unfortunately, the Nasi Goreng with chicken wasn't that wonderful. It tasted better with Sriracha, but still a little bland. The tom yam soup, and ramen were below expectations as well. Anyway, thanks for the great service!

Went in for cocktails as it was 2 for 1 , the waiter was so friendly and helpful, advising which ones were the best value. I opted for the Singapore sling on his recommendation and was not disappointed it was amazing 👌🏻my husband had the tiger beer which he loved. Wish we had eaten here as the food looked and... More
