I had a birthday meal with colleagues which we were all looking forward to. It quickly went down hill.. the waiter was too busy flirting with one of the girls on the table to get the order correct. The drinks arrived wrong, my starter (meat...More

Visited here whilst on business in Manchester, it is a very popular restaurant so there can be a wait for a table, definitely worth it though if you have the time. The food was delicious and can't be faulted at all.
