Agree with the other reviews, dry overcooked patties, beef was tasteless too. Not sure what is all the faff about that place. The original deco maybe? Wouldn't queue for hours though!More

Hi valManchester It's a real shame you didn't enjoy your experience here at Almost Famous, it's also a shame you didn't make a point of complaining when you were actually dining here. I'm sure we could have smoothed it out and you would have left...More

Came here with a colleague after work in May. I've never stayed in Manchester before, but we were staying nearby and wandered across this place having no knowledge/expectations of what to expect. On a Tuesday night we had to wait 5/10 minutes for a table...More

Went here for lunch. Had a burger. Must say probably the most expensive burger I've ever had. £12 on its own. Everything else is extra. Tasted ok but nothing great. Won't be returning.

Picked Almost Famous as it was recommended as having Manchester's best burgers. If this was the best, then I hate to think what the others are like. Menu is exciting, but failed to deliver with overcooked and dry patties (like a McDonald's one that's been...More
