Love this place, however I can never work out how to use the menu. One of the cooler bars in Manchester with the best DJ deck ever seen. Always a great night, just make sure you book

Quite simply the best dining experience I've ever had. Food was great, service impeccable, cocktails lovely and the atmosphere was the best. Top restaurant in Manchester.

An absolutley outrageously priced restaurant for both food and drink. Probably a great venue for sport stars and yuppies and those who wish to be seen but not for someone who doesn't mind paying providing the food is worth it. Certainly not in this venue.

Do you read Hello magazine? This is the place for you, full of shinny orange people with unfeasibly white teeth and more money than taste. Don't get me wrong the food, drinks and staff are super, but that all pales into insignificance when you see the clientele, who are the 'real' stars of the show.

Always wanted to have a meal here, a couple of us went for the 1st time and thought it was lovely inside! They offer a lot of sushi dishes but not all come at the same time, but it was nice! Would I say it is worth the money, no! That's not me being tight, just would like value for... More

Myself and fiancée have been 3 times, all at different times of the day and days of the week. It's always exceptional. The food it top notch, we've sampled wildly and enjoyed everything. In particular the fish curry on the lunch "tapas" style offer. The lamb pea and feta main is also a favourite of mine, doesn't look like a... More

I have only been to Australasia for drinks but every time I have been greeted warmly and the bar staff have been very chatty and warm towards us! Definitely recommend the drinks!

I've eaten in some Michelin stars, 4 star restaurants, the food was good but perhaps not quiet worth it. Great surroundings. Front of house could be more welcoming, on arrival asked our booking name as the front of house kept their head in an iPad! No eye contact, smile, welcome, I understand one is busy but please first impressions! The... More
