Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s great to see how the Corn Exchange is now being utilised. Full of great eateries that bring a real buzz to the city. Well known restaurants, including Cozy Club, Zizzi, Pho and many more serving all kinds of dishes. My favourite has to be Salvi’s Mozzarella Bar, either in the main arena or even better, go through the deli and down the stairs to have a real feast

Great venue, full of activity and atmosphere and a whole evening’s worth of stuff to be involved in, from bars and restaurants to other activities. Lots of security throughout is reassuring and everywhere is clean and friendly. A great hub in the city centre and somewhere worth returning to repeatedly.

In a gorgeous historic build is a multitude of dining choices. International and local.

Baroque in style it began life in 1903 as literally a trading place for the exchange of corn. Then a shopping mall and onto today as a food emporium.

To real mancunians this will always be the "Corn Exchange". Look above the door in the stonework. Before the 1996 IRA bomb this place was a treasure trove of independent traders and assorted oddballs who would read your palm or sell you an old record. Loved it! All gone and now various, so so designer shops (so many come and go.... and there are often empty units, despite what seems a half hearted publicity campaign) , chain restaurants and an interesting, yet part of a chain again, coffee house in a futuristic pod on stilts !

There are so many choices for food options including the orientation of that food as there are many to be had; Mexican, Chinese, Italian, American... etc... This building is also beautiful and interesting with two entrances to the main section and also security guards it is like walking into a higher class building that we shouldn't be in.

This has a touch of class inside. The restaurants and shops are excellent and there is plenty of choice. They are all high class affairs. It is a nice oasis from the noise and hustle and bustle outside and the inside is immaculate.

Manchester has gone through an enormous change in the last 20 years since I last visited and this place (which used to be a flea market before it got damaged in the IRA bomb) has already been reinvented twice since then and both times it has done nothing for me. In the 1990s I used to love coming here for the brilliant alternative boutiques and record shops and it was a really cool place to hang about in. Sadly it's full of designer rubbish and pretentious restaurants and the usual overpriced bobbins. Manchester seems to be very keen on this sort of thing - butt then again so does my home city of Newcastle these days!

I have always liked the Corn exchange building and the restoration to a restaurant heaven does not distract from the building. The roof is amazing and great choice of chain eateries
