Second visit, food delicious - fresh and full of flavour. Party of two kids and three adults. Staff - very chilled and friendly. My kind of place. Would recommend to anyone looking for good vegetarian food in West Didsbury.

Excellent food, good prices. The service is always exceptional with plenty of information about the dish if you ask. There's real passion behind the food. The atmosphere is lovely and it's great for everyone. I've been there on first dates, work parties, family lunches and dinner with friends. Hits the spot every time.

Haven't been here for a while as living in London now but have to say it is still a fantastic place to eat. Great menu, atmosphere and a real treat that we look forward to when we are back in town. Thanks so much, complements to the chef and team, dad enjoyed his 80th Birthday meal with the family. All... More

Great food, at reasonable prices. Perhaps a bit noisy at times - a very small place, so not good for young kids.

Had a great dinner here two days ago. Steak dish was superb! Would have given a top rating but for the fact we were given the wrong menu at first. Music was in the background but not too loud, so was scarcely noticeable. Warmly recommend this place.

Probably the nicest small restaurant in the area .Attentive and friendly staff. Plentyof choices and all well presented. It does get warm from the kitchen so don't wrap up! Daily specials are to be recommended. Pre book or you might be disappointed.

Called into Bistro West 156 on Burton Road for dinner with my wife. We had not booked so walked in off of the street and were immediately greeted by a lovely smiling member of staff who found us a table and then explained the day's menu to us. We ordered from the mid week 3 course menu and I can... More

Visited with my sister early on Saturday night just gone (following her recommendation) and was very impressed indeed. A small restaurant with lovely decor and very well laid out. Very friendly and professional staff, with a great range of food. We had the steak with spanish spices, roast winter vegetables and sweet potato fries - absolutely superb. The desert was... More

Visited on a whim, we live just round the corner and have stupidly never been here until now. The restaurant itself is quite small so booking is probably advised, we went on a Wednesday night and it was eventually full! Menu is small but range of food available is superb, I struggled to choose on all courses. Value for money... More

Bistro West 156 restaurant is a shining star in the thriving restaurant scene on Burton Road in Manchester���s West Didsbury, a quirky corner that���s a foodie heaven not all that far from where the M60 and the M56 part company. Bistro West 156���s pocket-friendly traditional cooking cuts out all the malarkey to deliver modern British cuisine, the real food that loyal fans adore. The rustic dining room with its granite topped tables, blackboard specials and changing local art displays sets a relaxed tone for easy lunches and suppers. While the food may be fine dining level, the ambience is bistro informal from terrific breakfasts right through to the last sip of dessert wine. Everything is homemade, and customer favourites include superbly cooked comfort classics like fish pie, chicken Kiev and Bistro West 156���s very own melting chocolate pudding. You will succumb. The warm welcome and tables outside entice you to linger.
