Called in sweet mandarin in the northern quarter of Manchester last night for a meal we were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff on arrival and there was a brilliant range of food on the menu we had sweet and sour chicken and beef with black bean for our main courses and it was served to perfection. Sweet Mandarin is... More

What a great place, i was looking forward to the food after reading the menu, with which I had high expectations, the expectations were more than met. The added bonus of a complete gluten free menu for my wife added to the experience. Some of the reviews moan about the decor, either these were not about the same restaurant or... More

I love this restaurant! They have a full Vegan menu as well as their usual main menu. So many choices for me to choose from, which isn't usual! I love the salt and pepper mushrooms. And for main,the aubergine dish was amazing! Best Chinese I've ever had. I wish I stayed closer so I could enjoy this place more often.

A large group of 15 of us went last night. The food was simply outstanding and the gluten free selection was great. Service was fast and friendly. Will definitely be back soon.

We visited for a special birthday meal last week and we weren't disappointed. Their knowledge of gluten-free food was excellent and that makes a big difference. The food was great and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Looking forward to many more meals here.

We went to sweet mandarin with a Groupon voucher we bought. We paid £38 for £70 worth of food for 2. Seems a lot or so we thought but the drinks were in that too, but I was glad I didn't go for the cheaper option price. We got there, it was very busy and we were dealt with quickly.... More

So, after a slight hiccup at another restaurant we had booked on Saturday the 21st January we decided to look else where... a group of 8 on a Saturday night in Manchester at 8pm... it was looking unlikely we'd get in anywhere! We happened to stumble upon Sweet Mandarin who welcomed up with open arms, managed to get a table... More

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
