This glossy, 2015 take on Chinese cuisine from brothers Adam & Drew Jones has been the launchpad for a national chain, with branches in Leeds, Birmingham, Edinburgh and (scheduled for 2022) London. Inspired by body art, the impressive interior is its star turn, with the “pricey” food taking second billing – making it very much a place to see and be seen.

“A great see-and-be-seen atmosphere” – Adam and Drew Jones’s expanding, Chinese, national chain is characterised by “superb surroundings” and as a result its Manchester branch (the chain’s first, which opened in 2015) is “understandably one of the most popular venues in town”. But there’s a general feeling that “it’s nice looking but could do better”“surroundings set an excellent first impression but I expected more of the food” (“on our visit, we couldn’t spot anyone Chinese in the kitchen, and it showed”); “and it’s pricey too”. “Overall there are better Chinese restaurants in Manchester… they’re not as striking though”.

Everyone agrees there’s an “absolutely stunning ambience” at this glam outfit, which is a magnet for a well groomed, Instagram-conscious crowd. There’s the odd gripe that it’s too pricey, but most reports are of “excellent” Asian cuisine. Next stop Birmingham, where a big opening was announced in October 2018.
