“High-end traditional Chinese cuisine at its best” and “exceptional service” win a chorus of praise for Wing Shing Chu’s smart city-centre Cantonese, which has welcomed millions of pounds-worth of United and City players, their WAGs and other celebs through its doors over the past two decades.
“Daintier dishes than in more traditional Chinese restaurants, but of superb quality” help draw the smart crowd to Wing Shing Chu’s “elegant” city-centre Cantonese, praised in particular for its “immaculate service”. It’s “certainly not a cheap choice”, but there are no complaints about the prices. “We alternate the banquets and are never disappointed”.
Wing Shing Chu’s well-known destination in a city-centre office block “attracts the celeb set with its well-executed Cantonese and extensive wine list”. “Yes, it is more expensive than Chinatown, and if you happen to want the less salubrious bits of the various animals (which I do now and then) you do need to go elsewhere”, but both the “crossover cooking” and service are “excellent”.
“Lots of Man-U clientele” have driven the fame of Wing Shing Chu’s fairly intimate Chinese, at the foot of a city-centre office building. “Not only is it a place to be seen in Manchester, more importantly it’s a great place to eat!” – “it’s taken the standard of service first developed hereabouts by Yang Sing to a new level” and the cooking itself is “always brilliant”.
Wing’s Restaurant Diner Reviews
"We have previously visited Wings at lunchtime, but the building work nearby has meant that it is temporarily closed until the evening. We decided to give it a try on Tuesday (22.10.19) and were disappointed; not with the food itself or the service but with the prices which are nearly double those in Chinatown. We ordered three dim sum, Thai fish cakes, Beef dumpling with ginger and spring onion and Crispy duck pancakes with hoisin sauce and for main courses Pak Far stuffed duck, Cha Sui and Vermicelli Singapore style. I find it quite difficult to come up with a definitive verdict for this restaurant. It was a very enjoyable meal and service was excellent, but the fact remains one can eat equally good Chinese food, perhaps even slightly better, for much less if one knows the right places in Chinatown. Nonetheless, this is reliable at quite a high level and the quality of the service does much to compensate for the perceived lack of courtesy which puts many people off Chinatown restaurants."
"Decent Chinese with expensive wine list and a minor celeb following. Wildly overrated. "
