“Excellent Chinese restaurant in the heart of Chinatown”
Review of Szechuan Kitchen

Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Last Thursday evening, we found ourselves wandering around Chinatown in search of an early dinner. Spoilt for choice, there were plenty of restaurants surrounding us, but which one to try? I work on the basis that if there are other people inside, it might be decent. Most places were still empty at 6.30pm but the Szechuan Kitchen already had half it's tables occupied by early diners.

As we sat down, I noticed we were the only "Guilo" in the place. Another great advert for the food I thought. If it's good enough for the local Chinese community, it's good enough for me. Even better, no poring over the menu trying to decide what to order, they have an early bird 4 course meal for £9.50 and it was delicious!

Little if any MSG was used so I didn't have a shrivelled up feeling after eating their delicious food. The meat quality was reasonable and the taste excellent.

You may wander around Manchester's Chinatown wondering which place to try. I'd highly recommend the Szechuan Kitchen! No connection with the business, just very pleased to pass on a recommendation where we've had great food at a reasonable price!

We visited Manchester early Sunday evening and wandered into China town, where one Chinese restaurant appeared very much like another. We opted for the Szechuan kitchen because we could see that it was busy with Chinese clientele. We weren't disappointed. This was an authentic experience with a wonderfully different menu. The food was fresh and tasty, without excessive flavourings and MSG that seems characteristic. I had minced prawn with lettuce for starters which was novel. A lettuce leaf wrap and very tasty indeed. My husband had a hot broth as a starter which he described as something very different with very interesting flavours. The service was good, and there was service tip was discretionary. In some nearby restaurants, this is added automatically. We will definitely go back and have to say we are rather fussy. Next time we will ask for chopsticks. Think this restaurant was so authentic assumptions were made about our dexterity! I have gone to the effort of registering this new venue as we were so impressed. Enjoy.
