KIM BY THE SEA..... Proud to say it's our local. Lovely little eatery. Fab reasonably priced food 🍲. The 🍋 lemon pistachio cake is great - and we often take a slice home. Large portions. Nice juke box. The most relaxed CAfe/BAr/restaurANT I've ever been in...... 'CA-BAA-ANT' if you will. Friendly staff. Comedy 😻. What else do you want?!

Quirky interior, quirky location, really good food and local locals. Kim by the Sea is located in the Homes for Change complex - a coop run building that embodied the spirit of Hulme from the past (for those who remember it). But it's now grown up, been cleaned up, and the prices are usual for Manchester. The food is really... More

Have passed this plague many times and never been in until recently(although it's only 400yards away ) really warm atmosphere . Great service and the food was top notch . £8 for a Piri chicken burger with hand cooked chips . The portion was terrific . We will go again !!

Always friendly staff , food delicious, nice surroundings. Really recommend the veggie fish&chips ! Only point I would add is that they don't let dogs in, unlike most similar eateries in the surrounding area.
