From authentic cuisine to greasy takeaway, we’ve picked out some of the best places to eat in the best city in England. Just to be helpful we’ve included prices, reasons they’re on this list, the location and personal recommendations.
Possibly one of the most famous restaurants in the North, and one of the more classy places you’ll find on this list. Here you can find some truly authentic Asian cuisine tucked beneath the large Armani store in Spinningfields. This is where you want to go to celebrate a once in a lifetime achievement, as it’s likely to have large waiting lists.
Price: Expensive, but worth it. I wouldn’t suggest coming here often unless your mattress is made of £20 notes.
Recommendations: Try the grilled chicken along with a plate of your choice. Do NOT miss out on the desserts.
Location: Next to Armani in Spinningfields on Deansgate. 1, The Avenue, Spinningfield, Manchester M3 3AP
Rising in popularity recently and with good reason, Moose Coffee provides the best breakfast and brunch in the whole of Manchester. A small lean towards a Canadian and American palette that you won’t find anywhere else in the city centre.
Price: Surprisingly cheap considering the quality and number of customers they receive.
Recommendations: The pancakes from here are by far the best that you will find in the north of England.
Location: Turning right off market straight, away from the main entrance to Primark. 20 York Street, Manchester M2 2BB
Luck Lust Liquor and Burn
The usual line up for a Mexican restaurant – Tacos, Burritos, nachos all served in a very laid back, relaxed setting. Perfect to grab a bite to eat and for a place to grab a few drinks with friends. The mood of the restaurant fits perfectly to the design.
Price: Around £8 for a meal, nothing to worry about.
Recommendations: The burgers in here are fantastic and definitely worth a try.
Location: In the Northern Quarter just around the corner from our school. 100-102 High Street, Manchester M4 1HP
We recently got to try out a free pizza from a brand new restaurant opening named Ply. Unlike many other pizza places in Manchester, we found Ply has a rare authentic taste of Italian pizza that you will struggle to find anywhere outside of Italy itself.
Price: You can get yourself a meal and a few drinks at the bar all for less than £15, very good pricing for very good quality.
Recommendations: The pizza!!!
Location: Also located only around the corner from our English academy. 26 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1DW
Earth cafe is a vegetarian cafe & juice bar, ironically located downstairs into the ground. Combinations tend to be what you expect from a vegetarian cafe, such as tomato and chickpea, which you can get alongside one of their hot dishes. Tasty and healthy.
Price: You can grab yourself a meal all for under £6
Recommendations: The mung bean curry is one of their most popular dishes
Location: Just near Afflecks in the Northern Quarter. 16-20 Turner Street, Manchester M4 1DZ
Strangely surrounded by a variety of nightclubs, and rather unknown despite it’s unique style and great prices, Habesha is Manchester’s only Ethiopian restaurant. Decorated to suit the East African style, the food more than makes up for the less than glamorous metal staircase on the way in.
Price: All meals come between £5.00 and £7.00 so you’re not going to need to break the bank to get a great dinner here.
Recommendations: The doro wot/Chicken marinated with lemon is one of the restaurants trademark dishes
Location: Just in-between Chinatown and Manchester’s Gay Village. 29-31 Sackville Street, Manchester, Lancashire M1 3LZ
