Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Nice fit out. Staff are pleasant. Service was slow. It wasn’t a busy night in the restaurant and it appeared that our food was in a queue behind Deliveroo orders, which isn’t cool. We went here based on reviews, predominantly Manchester’s Finest. The food was...underwhelming and not as reviewed. Salmon teriyaki wasn’t cooked through and had to go back. Chef trimmed down to remove the teriyaki, finished cooking and re-sauced, so the salmon was somewhat less that it started. Teriyaki wasn’t really a glaze, as in cooked in, it was a pour over and quick grill at the end. Although now edible, and presented well, it was but a simple dish that deserved no fanfare. The beef soup, again, looked great but when you boil it down it’s a relatively small portion of rice noodles with not much beef. The soup is much like a tom yam. It’s recommended to be served with sticky rice (which was fine), but adding rice to a rice noodle soup demonstrates how little sustenance by way of food is in the dish. Ultimately, it’s shredded beef, tom yum ramen with no egg. Even with the rice side, I left hungry. It’s not in any way authentic food, neither Japanese or Korean. From the review by Manchester Finest, I expected a lot better food. Lesson learned, don’t believe Manchester’s Finest. We wouldn’t return here.More

Absolutely fabulous food. We got a takeaway and had never tried Okitchen before but will definitely be back for more. Every dish was excellent (and I have a very fussy teenager to please) - thank you

It was a clean and pleasant venue. Food wasn’t inedible, just far from authentic. For us, it was average overall. We won’t be returning. Portions comparatively small to what we’ve been served at, at any other UK-based Korean restaurant. Panjeon was pre-cut. KFC was titch....Broth rather bland. The sharing soup on a tabletop stove was the highlight, IF you like the ingredients in it. Guessing it’s a good option if local…the vibe was…capitalise on filling a gap… give-the-locals-something-trendy-fusion-place to eat at. Ka-ching! HahaMore

Fantastic menu, tried everything and excellent quality every time. Proper dining and great pricing. Seems very popular with Deliveroo customers but they're missing out on the fantastic friendly service.

Amazing little restaurant in didsbury! Best Korean food in Manchester, kimchi jiggae is consistently rich and delicious and their Korean fried chicken with spicy mayo is a must order! Service is a little more relaxed but the staff are always super friendly, attentive and accommodating....Nicer than being rushed out for the next table!! Bartender made me an off the menu cocktail too which is always appreciated. Definitely worth a visitMore

The smell of old cooking fat as you approach and inside is not nice. This is the 2nd visit and same thing each time. The lighting is way too bright also. Food was disappointing the 2nd time and nothing like as good as when we...first visited in November 22. With a few improvements this could be great. Cocktails were very good.More

Family meal. Food was really good, clearly prepared to order. Very flavoursome, fresh, quality ingredients. Reasonable selection of beer on tap. The staff are so friendly. Service a bit slow, but we weren't in a rush we were out for a catch up not a...race. Certainly good value, pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived!More

Easily the best place to eat in Didsbury. Eaten here lots of times and each time the food has been consistently exceptional. Sushi and fried chicken is especially good. Service is excellent and cocktails are a must!

We've never had to wait 50 mins (from the time we placed our food order) to get a basic starter! The restaurant was busy churning out home deliveries to the very long queue of delivery drivers queuing at the door and forgot that they had...customers sitting in the restaurant. We were starving and when we told the manager that our food still hadn't arrived he rudely said that we weren't the only ones waiting for our food, there were other people/tables in the queue before us. No apology or explanation for the delay. We were going to walk away after finishing our wine but one of the waitresses Rosie spoke to us saying she empathised and apologised a few times for the managers rudeness and told us the food would arrive shortly. The food itself was average, the chicken my husband ordered was slightly undercooked. The waiter serving us was forgetful (we had ordered tap water without ice but served it with ice then made a face when we asked him to take the ice out) and sloppy, even serving dipping sauce trays with his fingers in it! he realised it himself and got us another one thankfully. The manager did nothing to make up for the delay and was very arrogant. We also saw him arguing and being rude to the delivery drivers. It was a Friday evening and we were looking forward to a nice dinner as the restaurant had been recommended, but the experience wasn't great and a bit stressful. We definitely won't be recommending it or going back!More

First time I’ve been and I was pleasantly surprised on how good the food is here. Excellent flavours. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only thing is would say is that it is too bright and they need to set a better mood...by turning down the lighting, especially for an evening meal.More

A family evening gathering that was enhanced by exceptional food and excellent service. The recommended Korean Fried Chicken starter was succulent, light and flavoursome. The tuna sashimi (my first time) was beautifully fresh with some potent wasabi. Beef Bulgogi, Chicken Teriyaki, Kimchi Fried Rice, Dolsot...Bibimbap, Japanese Style Stir Fried Noodles, Beef Japchae - each dish that came out was beautifully presented and delicious. This will become my go to place each time I’m in Manchester.More
