This pan-Asian pleases the crowd with everything from Japanese ramen and Singaporean laksa to Thai red curry and Balinese pork belly. The Albert Square original has spawned five other sites across the city.

“Better than Wagamama etc.” – if you’re in the market for a quick city-centre lunch, this “consistent” and “authentic” Pan-Asian continues to be a real local favourite; in summer 2018 they added a third Manc outpost in Piccadilly Gardens, but “the original branch on Albert Square in still a cut above the rest”.

“Still tops for fast and cheap street food” – the original branch of this canteen-style Pan-Asian chain remains “much better than its newer offshoots” (three locally, and one in the Big Smoke).

“Still the just about the best for a quick street-food type meal” – a “longstanding noodle bar where you are seated on benches”, and where, despite the speed of delivery, “you may have to queue”; the “original underground branch” is still “better than their new ones” by most accounts.
