Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

Harden's says

This restaurant from former Noma chef Simon Martin is described as an 'informal dining experience serving a menu of ten to fifteen plates in quick succession'. The small (just 30-covers) evening-only venture opens in Manchester Life’s Sawmill Court this summer and is one of the city’s most hotly anticipated new openings.

"Technically stunning Noma facsimile. Expensive and perhaps not in keeping with the locality, but technically, the best restaurant in Manchester, with absolutely spotless service. Superb. "

"I ate the Fall menu here shortly after the restaurant opened and was very impressed ..... but the Winter menu has taken it to another level. There is excellent balance in all of the dishes and overall it was absolutely world class. The restaurant itself is a beautiful space and it is very entertaining watching the service unfolding in front of you. All food is served by the one of the chefs and they are able to talk about it passionately and answer any questions you may have. Learning about the 2 hours it takes 12 people to peel the walnuts for the milk curd dish really gives you an insight into the extremes that these guys go to! This place is an absolute must for those interested in world class food. It is on a different level to anything else available in Manchester."
