Chinese Restaurants in Manchester
1. Tattu Chinese restaurant in Manchester 3 Hardman Sq, Gartside St - M3
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.
2. Wing’s Chinese restaurant in Manchester 1 Lincoln Sq - M2
Wing-Shing Chu’s high-end Cantonese venture in modern city-centre premises has won an enthusiastic following since it opened in 2004, and attracts a steady crowd of footballers and other celebs.
3. Yang Sing Chinese restaurant in Manchester 34 Princess Street - M1
“One of the grand dames of the Manchester restaurant scene” – the Yeung family’s famous Chinatown destination is no longer the city’s pre-eminent restaurant as it was for decades, but no-one has a bad word to say about the place and for lovers of Chinese cuisine it’s “still the best” (“no contest and I’ve eaten in Hong Kong”). In particular it’s a “preferred choice for dim sum, as there is a quality and refinement to the dishes – particularly the more dumpling-y ones – that far exceeds the competition”.
4. Little Yang Sing Chinese restaurant in Manchester 17 George St - M1
“The excellent food is the thing here” at this “bustling” Cantonese basement that has been a cornerstone of Manchester’s Chinatown for four decades and counting (it was the original site of the main Yang Sing). “We’ve been going to this restaurant for many years, and it’s still as good as ever – a joy to go for lunch or dinner”. Top Tip: “the dim sum” – full menu served until 5pm; restricted menu later.
5. Red Chilli Chinese restaurant in Manchester 70-72 Portland Street - M1
“Delicious, super-spicy” Sichuanese cooking sets the taste buds on fire at this “friendly” Chinatown operation, with offshoots near the university in Oxford Road, in Leeds and York. Top Tip: “the hot poached chicken is fantastic”.
6. Glamorous Chinese restaurant in Manchester Wing Yip Bus’ Centre, Oldham Rd - M4
“Busy”, huge and gaudy Cantonese that sits over the Wing Yip Oriental supermarket, where you can choose from over 300 dishes on the menu. It’s one of the few places left in town (in the country?) where dim sum still comes on trolleys.
7. Tai Pan Chinese restaurant in Manchester 81-97 Upper Brook St - M13
2018 Review: This shed-like operation continues to please, even after several decades in business; “lots of Chinese eat here, especially university students and café owners which must indicate its authenticity!”
