This place is INSANE! Everything I expected and more! The food is incredible, cannot recommended highly enough
The staff were some of THE nicest people, and nothing was too much trouble.
My only regret is that I can’t go more often. I will DEFINITELY be back!
Atmosphere, food, staff all at the top of their game

The food here is amazing, nice drinks, friendly staff, good music, amazing photo spots and the best vibes! If you’re looking for a casual dining experience or a pre-drink spot in Manchester, this is it. There’s no where in the UK like it, definitely worth a visit X

I'd been looking forward to trying this place after seeing it all over Instagram (basically sucked in by the hype). What a shame it was soo bad. Even with a DJ and some nice decor (mainly moving lights). Something about it just lacked atmosphere and was clinical. We had one drink which took a while to come and quickly left. Lesson learnt don't believe the hype and insta life

Very nice cocktails and side plates of food.
Shots are served on a pink Cadillac!
There are plenty of photo opportunities in this Miami style pink venue.

Please avoid this place! The interior is nice and very “instagrammy” but the service and cleanliness is not good. We met a group of 4 women outside the restaurant before we went in, they warned us of the restaurants bad service and said their mains arrived before their starters and the bill was overcharging them too. Therefore we didn’t have high expectations when going in but decided to still give it a chance as we had it booked for a long time.

When arriving in we were shown to our table quickly. The menu was a QR code but the staff were still to come to physically take our order. Also, there was only 4 mains to choose from!! And our menus looked different on each of our phones.

We obviously never got to try any of the food or drinks but it definitely was overpriced. £14-£20 for a main. Small plates costing over £7 each and the cocktails all over £10.

We sat for for 25 mins and absolutely no one came to even take our drink order. The restaurant wasn’t even that busy. There were about 3/4 tables left with leftover food just sitting there with no one bothering to pick it up. Some of the staff were just standing talking to each other. Another group of customers were chanting “we want food” as they had been waiting for ages.

Finally after the 30 minute mark and with nobody acknowledging us we just got up and left the restaurant. This has also messed up our other reservations for bars later on as we still hadn’t had dinner.

Overall 202 Kitchen was a complete waste of time and a disappointment. Don’t be fooled by their Instagram as everything looks perfect but in reality it is very poorly managed. A shame because it has potential to be a very good restaurant.
