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.

Visited a couple of times and been very pleased with the experience. The food is a good blend of Spicy and not so spicy so good for groups with differing tastes. Always been at a time or with a card that gave a good discount so cannot complain at prices though drinks do seem a bit over the top.

Had a lovely meal in a nice setting.
We had booked a table and had only a 3 or 4 minute wait before being shown to our table. Staff were very friendly and attentive.
Menu was thorough and it was easy to chose our dishes.
There were 4 of us dining and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals

We've only been here a couple of times over the years and this visit reminded us why.

The staff are friendly and, although the food took ages to come, the service was generally good. The table was really sticky though and three times our wine glasses were removed even though we'd ordered wine.

Those are minor niggles though that, if the food was good, probably wouldn't matter. It wasn't though - it was distinctly average. I've been to Indonesia and this is a pale imitation of authentic dishes. I really got the impression I could do better at home.

Worst of all though are the prices. £4.50 for a 330 ml beer - really? Our starter amounted to some bread with peanut sauce and was just about £7; the mains were overpriced too with my chicken dish about £15.

It's a shame as I would love to have been able to give a good review; there are too many reasons why I can't.

This was our 4th visit to Ning and it just gets better and better every time. The food is excellent and delicious and service is always with a smile. Staff are attentive, approachable and knowledgeable. We always feel that we can ask questions and for recommendations. We recommend the roti cennai, the chicken satay, nasi lemak and nyonya chicken. Can't wait for our next visit.
