This is a fairly small and stylish 'basement' restaurant on the edge Manchester's Chinatown. Caution to people with limited mobility : There's a small flight of steps down from street level. I think the toilets are up a different set of stairs inside the restaurant....More

Went to Red Chilli last night with two work colleagues. Arrived just before 7pm and it was already buzzing. Whilst the decor may not be that salubrious, the welcome and the service overall was very good. Having heard the old mantra of not eating anywhere...More

The place is a chain and I've dined at their york restaurant before now and had a pleasant experience; however, this was not the case here. Decent service; however the place itself is very lacklustre. The toilets were in need of a fire clean. Choice...More

This was a lovely surprise. Meal for 11 people. We were all really impressed with the quality of the food. Like a traditional restaurant in Shanghai the food came out gradually and we all shared as it arrived. The food was hot and all of...More

A wonderful little restaurant with very basic- non flash decor. The food is authentic and delish (having travelled China). Minor criticism is that more spice needed in the chilli dishes- I like it hot! The fixed meals are probably slightly more expensive than they should...More
