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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wowser ! What a great dining experience. Travelling in from the airport, I decided to stay overnight in Manchester just to have dinner here ! I was not disappointed. Warm welcome and front of house service is excellent. The menu is always so daringly different....Very imaginative. Different combinations of textures and flavours. Global flavours ! Menu changes very frequently with an accent on fresh fish and seafood. Dishes are also very well presented. Menu is on a chalkboard, and the variety is amazing - very talented chef and team. They also have a specials board. The wine lost has grown substantially, and there are some cheeky little wines on there , carefully selected, with some surprises! A wonderful dining experience. Thank you. I believe that they serve the best food in Manchester.More

Amazing restaurant. Starters/small plates. I had trout crudo with orange slices and slivers of crab in batter, my dining companion had pulled duck empanada with plum chutney. Beautiful presentation, great colours, flavours, textures. Mains/large plates. I had scallops in cream sauce, my dining companion had...calves liver, both seasoned and cooked to perfection. Desert was mango kulfi ice crean with rum soaked pineapple fritters. Yum. We will be back. Our dishes were off the specials board. The main menu had many other equally appealing dishes.More

Didn't have a reservation but we got in just in time as people were turned away afterwards. Service was great, the staff were polite courteous and helpful. The food, what can I say, absolutely amazing, the flavours , the ingredients, out of this world, I've...eaten in many fancy restaurants and they don't compare.More

Return visit as it’s one of my favourite places in Manchester for English market food with a twist. Staff are all very friendly and food is always excellent. The pigeon starter was excellent. I have always been a fan of pigeon and small birds but...often find it is dry, which it was not here. The lemon tart to finish was fantastic. Great portions for the price and a lovely wine list. Would highly recommend.More

To describe their mains as North African dishes is an issue to North African culture. The description of the dishes sounded very appealing , however the quality provided was very flat. The “tagine” had no inspiration of North African cuisine and any criticism was left...on deft ears. The lack of both taste and theme was very depressing; there was a lot to be desired for. The defensiveness of the manager was a severe put off to the whole experience. The “tagine” tasted like boiled white fish in pea soup. It was such a disappointment and it did not meet our expectations considering the price.More

Friendly staff, just let down by the extremely poor food. And that was every dish all four of us had. It would have been disappointing at half the price.

Our third our fourth visit to Street Urchin and another exceptional meal with outstanding welcome and service from Rachel and her team. We've been to many restaurants in Manchester since our previous meal at Street Urchin, and it remains by far the best pound for...pound restaurant in the city. Interesting and varied menu with each dish cooked to perfection, and you don't leave hungry! Some newcomer restaurants would do well to take a look at Street Urchin and learn more than a thing or two!More

Ever changing menu was emailed on the morning of our visit. It’s a market diner so don’t expect the same choices on your next visit. And believe me there will be a next time. The food is outstanding, by far the best dinning experience I...have had in a long time. The menu is inventive, excellent service, reasonably priced. Not to be missedMore

My wife, 9 yr old daughter and I booked in while we were in Manchester on December 3th for a game at the Etihad and wow!! this place lived up to our expectations. One of the best meals I’ve ever had!! Staff were great, wine...choices great and atmosphere just right. I had a starter (Onion dosa pancake with crab and sweet potato masala) and main (pan fried halibut with smoked haddock beignets with a spinach and leek beurre blanc) from the specials board. The dessert I had was incredible and was nicknamed Manchester Moneybags and were apparently a take on Manchester Tarts (Balls of custard filled pastry deep fried with coconut and raspberry jam) 🤤🤤🤤 Highly highly recommended and worth every penny.More
