Harden's survey result
The TV host’s “quirky” flagship restaurant wins high ratings despite its “interesting” (some would say iffy) location, upstairs at the Manchester235 casino. Head chef, Doug Crampton’s cooking here is “a real pleasure” – “all dishes are prepared with great care and are a delight to eat”. “Try the afternoon tea they recently introduced, very yummy!”.
“Based in Manchester235 [‘a Las Vegas-style casino’] this is an unlikely place for a restaurant like this” (“not ideal for fine dining”, or even “terrible”), but fans feel it’s “a real, somewhat forgotten, gem in the centre of Manchester” and say “once you’re in you forget where you are”. All reports agree, however, on the “fantastic value”: the food is “refined, very well cooked and very tasty” and “the cost of the wine flight is amazingly cheap, considering the quality”.
“Despite its unusual location, the decor is elegant, service professional, and the food excellent throughout” at the TV chef’s city-centre venture: “and once you are in, you would never know you are in a casino!”
“Don’t let the unusual location in a casino put you off” – despite its “odd setting”, the TV chef’s city-centre venture serves some “fantastic food, particularly the starters”, and “at truly reasonable prices” too.
