Manchester continues to grow rapidly by the year and with many businesses moving to Manchester, the city has never been so vibrant. As restaurants open and close daily, it can be difficult sometimes to get excited about them. To help you choose a great place to eat we’ve shortlisted 5 top restaurants in Manchester. These restaurants offer something ‘a bit different’ and ensure great food and unforgettable experiences.
1. Shoryu Ramen
Shoryu Ramen is a different restaurant compared to the rest of the features on this list, as Shoryu is a Japanese restaurant. It has recently found its home in Manchester’s Piccadilly Gardens and has continued to thrive off such an exclusive location within the city. The fabulous launch of the restaurant was a parade and Carl Austin-Behan, also known as the Lord Mayor of Manchester, was there to celebrate it alongside the public! If you’re looking for a balance of taste bud tingling food and a combination of fresh and cooked food, Shoryu Ramen is exactly what you’re looking for!
2. The Refinery
When it comes to classic and traditional food, The Refinery is a real treat. Based in the heart of Spinningfields, people automatically assume that the bar is a typical ‘Spinningfields bar’, however The Refinery by Drake and Morgan offers competitive prices and an awesome menu. Compared to the likes of The Alchemist, Neighbourhood and Manchester House, The Refinery offers exclusive food and drinks for a fraction of the price. They may specialise in cocktails, but The Refinery is an all-round place to visit. Somewhere to eat, drink and have some fun with family or friends!
With a Middle East and Mediterranean ideology behind their food, Suri has become a popular, yet unique option for Mancunians. With the choice to have food and drinks, Suri takes its Mediterranean and Middle Eastern twists to both, with blends of ginger beer, Saffron Royale and Bombay Sapphire based cocktails! For those with a taste for something new and exotic, Suri is the restaurant where you should be heading to!
4. V Rev
The vegan movement has taken the world by storm. Lots of people are becoming absorbed by the animal-friendly, healthier and more organic lifestyle. V Rev, which was known as V Revolution, is an animal-friendly, vegan restaurant that has expanded from a little café, into a restaurant based in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter. The idea behind the restaurant in Manchester was to have an animal-friendly, fast food restaurant, in which they quickly established. They’ve even taken the same approach with their drinks. With dairy free and vegan cocktails on offer, it highlights their dedication to the whole movement.
5. Moose Coffee
Moose Coffee is a special place for all those breakfast lovers. As it has remained under the radar, Moose Coffee has continued to excel in the breakfast department. Moose Coffee remains a hangover’s best friend, but it gives you the option to have a side order or a tasty breakfast should you want too! If you’re heading out for some fun and plan on having way too many drinks, then this may just be the best restaurant to drag yourself to the next day for some brekkie!
