If you're looking for nice food at a good price during the evening then this is the place. A five course menu for £12.50 per person, food was really nice and well presented. Some of the staff were ignorant and not customer friendly and the decor & furniture needs updating but the food is excellent. I would certainly eat here again.

There are a ton of Chinese & Thai restaurants to choose from in this area of Manchester. For no particular reason I chose this one.

Average decor of a typical Americanized Chinese restaurant. Prices a bit high: I got a small plate of Cantonese beef noodles for just under £7.

Service was underwhelming.

Completely forgettable dining experience. No Wi-Fi.

FYI - if you don't spend more than £10 they only accept cash.

Needed a change, this hit the spot. Just as we were going in, a Chinese tour group descended like locusts, and in 30 minutes they were gone. We enjoyed at a more leisurely pace, especially the duck pancakes and green vegetable, the San Choy bau was pretty good too. Atmosphere was as you'll expect for basic Chinese, we enjoyed the experience.

I pop into this restaurant regularly for a quick lunch with my husband when visiting Manchester City Centre. The 4 course lunch at £9 per person is not bad value for money. The food is lovely and tasty. The restuarant is very clean although the only downside is that the chairs are in need of repair or replacement as the vinyl covering is very tatty and could easily pluck clothing. Also some of tables for two are directly in front of a not very appealing galley leading to the kitchen area and toilets and if you are sat facing this its a little depressing. A curtain or something similar would help with this perhaps.

We visited this restaurant on a trip to Manchester to see the Coronation Street set. We had a walk to China Town to see the Chinese arch. Unfortunately it was covered over for restoration. We just wanted something cheap for dinner and came across this place which was offering 3 courses for either £5 or £6 (can’t quite remember). The restaurant was empty so we didn’t think it would be any good but nevertheless we went in. There was a surprisingly large choice on the menu. I chose spring rolls for starter and satay chicken with fried rice for main. My friend had chicken & sweetcorn soup for starter and chicken curry with rice for main. The food was fantastic, really tasty and piping hot. The third course was either mixed fruit or coffee, we chose coffee. All that for just a few pounds? The people of Manchester are obviously unaware of this place as it should have been packed!! I’d definitely go back.
