In Manchester for a concert in the Northern Quarter, we parked in Spring St. car park and set out looking for an early dinner. The first place we passed was Ning and as the menu was inviting and the restaurant was busy we decided to give it a go. Quickly shown to a table, we ordered drinks. There was a... More

Whilst we are regular visitors to Manchester, we'd never tried this restaurant - a bit of a diamond find. Excellent food, started consisted of spring rolls and calamari followed by traditional curries. The whole experience was wonderful and certainly one that we'll be trying again!

Last minute reservation here and it was lovely. Polite staff, great food with authentic flavour! Really pretty inside too. Good value for money and quite central with Halal food.

Ticks all the boxes. Intense spicing. Chilli heat just right. Beef rending as good as in Malaysia itself. Pleasant unobtrusive service.

The food was delicious and amazing, the service was perfect and the environment was great. I will recommend the Restuarant for my friends and family who will visit Manchester and I will visit the restaurant again to enjoy the amazing food

Its my friends birthday today and he invited me to this restaurant for dinner. I do go through this route a lot but never noticed this restaurant. The decor was not too fantastic as you will expect in an opulent asian fashion. But this was compensated for by the welcoming smile of the staff. Had a sumptuous meal and did... More

We wanted to experience a little different flavours for once and chose to have dinner at Ning. Our waitress welcomed us warmly and gave us a table right at the window. The restaurant was very busy at 7pm. It is generally rather cramped. Nevertheless, the food we got was absolutely delicious. We ordered the set menu for GBP 13.95 p.p.... More

Description
Manchester might be awash with slick dining outfits but none quite like Ning. Unlike many others, Ning values subtlety and sophistication both in its style and its cuisine. This Northern Quarter venue offers a bustling ambience somewhere between trendy canteen and chic bistro. With polished wood tables, voguish floral patterned wallpaper and candlelit tables, the interior strikes a similar balance of fashionable buzz meets classy intimacy. Award-winning, the predominately authentic Malaysian menu also offers Thai and fusion dishes, all made with fresh ingredients, free from added MSG. Ning's accomplished chefs pride themselves on producing a concise menu of carefully selected and well cooked dishes, and service is attentive without being over-bearing. Malaysian hospitality and food.
