Six of us dined during Christmas week. The starter plates of antipasti was excellent and came quite quickly. We then waited a very long time for our main meals. Two of us had the duck. It was very well prepared, but served luke-warm. They offered to reheat it, but I didn't want to turn my rare duck breast into medium-well, so stuck with the warm duck. Another in our party had the linguine with clam sauce. The pasta was very over- cooked, which ruined the meal. Three others had the lasagna. Two of the three were served luke-warm (like the duck). They reheated the dishes and were both were delicious. In summary, a good addition to Manchester, with decent food. The Al Duchi deli is so good that we all had very high expectations; maybe we were unrealistic. Overall I'd say it's a good experience - but don't expect to be blown away.
