“One of the few places left where the dim sum still comes on trolleys”, this “buzzing and handy” Cantonese has more than 300 dishes on the menu and is upstairs from the Wing Yip Oriental supermarket. The name strikes an unintentional ironic note – “it’ll always be an eating hangar, but the quality seems to have taken an uptick”.

“The trolley service dim sum (good, if nothing exceptional) is the draw to this Cantonese barn” which sits “above a cash and carry” and has “oh-so glamorous (ho ho) views of a multi-storey car park”; “be prepared to queue in a slightly disorganised way”, and “don’t miss your number being called or you’ll be at the back of the queue again”.

“If you had your eyes closed and only opened them in the restaurant you would think you were in Hong Kong” – rather than atop the Wing Yip supermarket – at this well-known, bustling Cantonese outfit. Dim sum is the real draw, and other dishes can strike reporters as “substandard”.

This “premier eating warehouse”, atop Wing Yip supermarket, is perennially “crammed with Chinese” come the weekend. “Authentic dim sum” is the main event (“other items only rate as good”); “Sundays and Mondays are when you get the trolleys, but the selection seems pretty comprehensive during other lunchtimes too”. “Service is chaotic but friendly enough, if you smile and speak a few words of Cantonese!”

Reviewed 3 months, 27 days ago

"Moderate dim sum and other offerings including from what looks like promisingly antique metal carts endlessly wheeled around by tired looking waitresses which turn out to be full of disappointing, gelatinous, overcooked, under flavoured dumplings. Expect to be charged £1 plus for each small saucer of chilli oil which in every other Chinese restaurant is free. Much better to travel another 5 minutes to enjoy the much more accomplished and generous Tai Pan. "

Reviewed 4 months, 7 days ago

"I went for a Chinese meal to a restaurant I have not visited for some time since it is more easily accessed by car than public transport; the ‘Glamorous’ on Oldham Road, above the Wing Yip supermarket. Its speciality is lunchtime Dim Sum served from trolleys and has the most comprehensive section on Manchester, but this was an evening meal and I had Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs and Sliced Duck Stuffed with Minced King Prawn, a crossover dish which was, I believe, first served at the old Kwokman, now long gone. These are both personal favourites, excellent versions and generous portions too and at £35 (incl 10% tip) I would rate this as good but not excellent value. I have previously felt the evening menu was not as good as the outstanding Dim Sum but this meal went some way towards changing that."
