What a great find this place is. Located right on Piccadilly Gardens and steps away from the tram stop and all that central Manchester has to offer. Food is served in boxes and you sit on long wooden benches and seats. If ambience is what you want, then this isn't for you. However, if you want fast, freshly cooked Asian... More

I love this place since my uni day in Manchester, easy peasy, quick meals and generous serving size! you can actually share with a friend if you are the kind of person that dont eat too much. My personal fave is Indonesian Nasi Goreng (which appeared on their number 1 on the menu list). I have heard that they closed... More

Didn't know what I wanted and found this place. Fantastic food and quick service. Thoroughly recommend the spring rolls and Pad Thai. Big portions and made fresh. Will definitely be back

We used to eat at Rice in metrocentre, Gateshead all of the time and we loved it but it closed down and we did miss it. To be honest I did notice a difference in the cleanliness, quality of food in the last few visits at metrocentre before it eventually closed. Anyway, we were looking forward to visiting the Manchester... More

Ok but menu is very limited and staff standing around eating in the food prep area. Also didnt look the cleanest. Salt and pepper chicken had a good taste though.

Went for a quick lunch at 1:30pm, no mention when placing my order that it would be a long wait. It took over 20 minutes to get my food which meant I only had to eat 1/3rd before needing to leave for a 2pm meeting. Had they warned me when ordering I would have been able to come back later,...

Good fast, easy and cheap food for when you're in a rush! There's not a lot of places to sit, but you can easily take it away with you or sit on the benches nearby.
