Tucked away and an undiscovered gem. By the canal with plenty of outdoor seating, the weather was perfect when we went. Food was spot on, staff friendly and very helpful, music was good. Definitely going back there again

Another takeaway for us......after reading all the reviews we expected more. Difficult to park as the location is basically on the bridge in Ancoats. Food was just above average.....'nice'! Disappointing for us they forgot one if our takeaway dishes. Probably won't go back 😭
