International Restaurants in Greater Manchester
1. Mackie Mayor International restaurant in Manchester 1 Eagle Street - M4
“THE place to visit in Manchester!” – a grand listed Victorian building in the Northern Quarter, once a derelict meat market, now beautifully restored to host a selection of “very high-quality” street-food stalls. There’s a “wonderful, buzzing atmosphere, and an amazing choice of food and drinks”.
2. Altrincham Market International restaurant in Altrincham Greenwood Street - WA14
A rare beacon amid tales of the death of the high street, the “vibrant” regeneration of Alti’s covered market – which dates back to 1290, and has been reinvented in recent years by local lad Nick Johnson – is heartening indeed. It’s now “a very exciting place to eat”, with a “massive choice of different food” under its Victorian roof – including noted sourdough pizza purveyors Honest Crust, who occupy Market House, the new market’s centrepiece.
3. Refuge by Volta International restaurant in Manchester Oxford Street - M60
A “magnificent”, interiors-magazine-worthy setting in an old Victorian office block adds to the drama of a visit to this hip enterprise, by Justin Crawford and Luke Cowdrey, aka The Unabombers (also behind Electrik and Volta). The small plates generally hit the mark, the all-day Sunday roasts are “superb” and it’s “great fun being able to finish off with a game of table football!”. “We were a large motley crew and our waitress did a fantastic job accommodating everyone – from vegans to carnivores, toddlers to octogenarians”.
4. Sigiriya International restaurant in Hale 173 Ashley Road - WA15
For “Sri Lankan food with clean, fresh flavours”, this Hale three-year-old (est 2017) can’t be beat; named after that country’s dramatic UNESCO site, it’s owned by industry veteran Don Buddhika, whose CV includes the Jumeirah Beach in Dubai and, more recently, Mughli in Knutsford.
5. Albert’s International restaurant in Manchester 120-122 Barlow Moor Rd - M20
2017 Review: A “buzzing, always busy brasserie in smart Didsbury” combining a “fun, noisy atmosphere” and a “menu that runs the gamut from burgers to steaks via pasta and pies”. (“There’s a sister restaurant – Albert’s Shed – at Castlefields too.”)
6. Six by Nico International restaurant in Manchester 60 Spring Gardens - M2
"A new restaurant every six weeks." This mini-chain from chef Nico Simeone opened in Manchester in Summer 2019 (there are sites also in Belfast, Glasgow and Edinburgh) serves a signature six-course tasting menu, which changes every six weeks in style, cuisine and inspiration, served to 66 diners.
7. Escape to Freight Island International restaurant in Manchester Baring Street - M1
A "inspiring new urban landscape carved from a long-forgotten freight depot" opposite Piccadilly station; food offerings will include Voodoo Rays wood-fired pizza, asador grills from Baratxuri, tacos from Madre and coffee/cakes from Krum.
