My husband opted for the Beef Rendang for main and i had the special chicken curry. Both meals were utterly delicious, I could not finish mine as I was full so... More

I went for the 15.95 deal includes starter, main and a side, I didnt regret it. The warm salad was a generous size dish with lovely flavours in it, the main was sweet and spicy and I was happy with my choice. Good service and good food, all in all a good rounder.

Could not fault the food, service and excellent value for money. Modern and comfortable restaurant. We took advantage of the 30% off offer for Saturday dining 5-6pm (now finished). The Tom Yam soup was every bit as good as we have had in Thailand. My Nasi Ayam was bursting with flavour and there was plenty to eat. All four of... More

It was my first time at Ning, but I would come back to try more dishes. The food is good, the service is very nice. However for the type of restaurant that it is and the fact that it's Malaysian street food, I would say it's slightly overpriced with around 25 per head without drinks.

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.
