Was recommended this place to eat but a bit dubious as most Chinese restaurants in Manchester are so average, small place in the basement as are a lot in the area. Very pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff as a lot of the restaurants in the area have very unfriendly waiting staff. Ordered from the set lunch menu 2 courses... More

This is a very authentic Chinese restaurant. The food is amazing and never disappoints. It's been here a long time and consistently serves 1st class food.

Went to this restaurant for the first time and have to say we really enjoyed it. The selection of food was excellent and the service was first class. The portion sizes were very big so would advice sharing a starter unless you are really hungry!! We had a great meal here and would definately return.

We ate here yesterday for the first time in several years. Why oh why we've not been for so long is beyond me but we'll be back soon & regularly. French beans with minced pork, GungBao scallops and Crispy Shredded Fillet Steak were all excellent. Washed down with a few pints of Dortmunder - decent beer a huge bonus for... More

Have been here twice on separate visits to a friend in Manchester and both times have been equally as impressed! So nice to go to an authentic Chinese restaurant with charm and great service. We stuck to crispy beef and a sweet chicken dish as opposed to tongue or intestines, but honestly the best I've had. Actual beef instead of... More

Imaginative menu and probably a good place if you have the guts to eat intestines tripe etc ! Anyway thought I would give the place a try having been once before long ago and aiming to avoid the offal dishes at all costs entered a rather dank pungent basement space whereupon on feeling the waiting staff seemed bored and uninterested...

Visited the Red Chilli on Portland Street in the city centre with a friend on Wednesday. The restaurant menu states it is on a mission to provide authentic Szechuan food in Manchester and is very different from the Hong Kong style places which are the norm around here with less emphasis on dim sum or Cantonese style roasts and much...

Rude staff, abrupt and very little time for you, especially the woman clearing the plates snatching them off the table and slamming them into the buckets right in front of you. Food was terrible, all the sauces were just slop and poor quality meat. Absolutely no chance of ever going back and also noticed their food hygiene was poor on... More
