International Restaurants in Hale
1. WOOD Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Manchester Jack Rosenthal Street - M15
MasterChef 2015 winner Simon Wood opened his debut open-kitchen concept two years later, offering only tasting menus. It is achieving solid ratings now that the initial hype has died down, with fans largely agreed that it’s “expensive, but great for a special night out”. A data manager from Oldham before his TV triumph, Simon is still refining his venue, most recently converting its private dining room into ‘Homage’ (rhyming with ‘fromage’), a tasting bar to pair cheeses and chutneys with wine and beer. A spinoff restaurant ran in Chester for two years, and the WOODKraft daytime café operates in Cheltenham.
2. Sigiriya International restaurant in Hale 173 Ashley Road - WA15
The “clean, tasty flavours” of the cooking at this five-year-old Sri Lankan make it the “best restaurant of its kind for miles around”. For Colombo-born owner Don Buddhika it is a very personal project, celebrating his origins after a career spent in the Middle East and Manchester.
3. Altrincham Market International restaurant in Altrincham Greenwood Street - WA14
Run by Nick Johnson and wife, this reinvented Victorian hall embodies “the very best type of market regeneration”, and is now “ringed with excellent, varied food and drink outlets” (not least pizza gods Honest Crust). It has “caused a big restaurant revival in surrounding streets” since launch – the only problem being that the “buzzy” spot is “sometimes too crowded for its own good”.
