Fancied a Chinese with substance.....not the usual yuckiness! This well established establishment did not dissapoint. If you are looking for a good Chinese, this is the place. Each dish was authentic.....the egg fried rice was okish but will definitely go back!

Not good enough for the northern quarter. Good service but food was only as good if not quite as good as the local Chinese Chippy, £107 for 2 adults and 2 kids, sorry must try harder.

Sweet Mandarin stands out on the Manchester restaurant scene for its vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere, modern Chinese menu and killer cocktails. Located in the chic Design House on Copperas Street, the award-winning restaurant is based on a simple philosophy: quick service, delicious pan Asian cooking and value for money. Whether you're in the mood for a memorable meal in the minimalist dining room, or after-work cocktails, celeb-spotting and Chinese tapas in the bar – this is the place for you. Working in a theatrical exhibition kitchen, the high-energy chefs use Mandarin style woks and traditional techniques to prepare classic dishes such as beef with sweet peppers and black bean sauce; Shanghai vegetables with garlic and chilli sauce; and General Tse's sweet and sour chicken
