Haven't been here for a while. We used to frequent a lot but recipes changed and it put us off. Then the menu changed and this put us off more! However I have struggled to find anywhere that produces dishes to the same delicious spiciness. So whilst in the area decided to give the place another go. We were pleased... More

First visit to Tampopo and was pleased, they do seat you on long tables however they do leave one seat between other couples which looks cramped but once you're sat down you don't notice other people. From the prawn crackers to the satay chicken and the Chicken Katsu Curry everything was amazing. Service was good and fast. Will certainly be... More

Good food might not be everyone taste but I prefer them to Wagamama. Price is reasonable for Trafford centre.

Whilst highly rated by other customers, there are certain things about this restaurant that must be taken in to consideration. Whilst the sharing platter is a good starter, I highly recommend going for a different option at £15 it is highly over priced and would suggest to the restaurant that they provide the option of swopping the spicy wings out...

I really enjoy my pad thai last night and the service is superb. The environment and ambiance of the place is perfect the music is not too loud, the light is not dim. Served by Jholin However the choices are very limited and The dessert has not much option aswell.

After hearing from numerous people about how great it was decided to give it a try. We both got the Ramen 🍜. Steak for me and chicken for my partner. Both meals arrived warm and the broth lacked any taste or seasoning. The vegetables in the both where raw and the whole dish lacked any Oriental flavour. Very disappointing for... More

I had chicken satay and the wife BBQ chicken starters and both dishes were lacking in flavour and only "warm" when they arrived... More

With 180 seats, it’s a firm favourite of the Trafford Centre. Our outside seating within the Orient’s upper food hall eats gives you chance to gaze on the busy shoppers; or get away from it all and dine inside watching our chefs work away. Great for refuelling during shopping trips, family teas or cinema eats.
