    Excellent food & service. Great Staff , Very Friendly ,Flexible service and willing to go the extras mile. Food was excellent in presentation, heat and very close to being a homely taste. The Main meals were full of flavour and faultless. The wife and I enjoyed every minute and was a great way to remember our special occasion.

    food was very nice been most of the top restraunts in Manchester and just felt it was a tad overpriced 2 main meals 4 drinks 1 nan bread and 1 rice 65 quid is a little pricey when u consider its only a curry and not a piece of fillet steak.Taste was very nice but due to the price I wouldn't be rushing back as I can get food on the same par but at a better price in a couple of places around Manchester.

    We went a few weeks ago on a Saturday night. We enjoyed it so much we wanted to return. We booked another table for Easter Sunday. What we didn't realise until we had sat down and ordered drinks was that it was buffet night. Not what we were expecting. There was no signs with regards to this on the table and we had to ask how much it would be. It was assumed I think that we should have known it was buffet night. Some of it had gone cold and a lot of the salad was gone. I would return and recommend the restaurant but don't go on a Sunday night expecting a nice sit down meal

    We went there for an Easter buffet, there was a good selection of starters, curries and fried rice/noodles, we were expecting a more authentic choice of desserts but it was a bit of disappointment as they were the things you could get from a supermarket (banana cake/cheesecake/chocolate pudding). We were feeling really thirsty after the meal and thinking perhaps it was the msg they put in the food, the thirst only went away after drinking lots of water through out the night. It's ok for a casual meal but I'm not sure if I would recommend to others.

    We visited on a Saturday were taken up to the cinnabar first which was very nice. Shown to our table 25 mins later than booked. The restaurant was very busy. The food was amazing and we weren't rushed I did feel that there wasn't enough staff to ask for another drink. Overall though a very enjoyable evening for me and my boyfriend especially for him as there was a manchester city footballer on the next table.

    The food was plain and extremely salty. The drinks were foul. The free glass of wine didn't arrive with the meal. The wrong main course and dessert arrived (in the end we just ate what was brought to avoid further confusion) We requested tap water to accompany the meal and were charged for tap water in a filter bottle! A extra bottle of wine was added to our bill at the end. The staff were very friendly though! Although they did keep us hanging around in the foyer so someone could accompany us 1 floor up in the lift so someone else could show us to our huge table (for 2) - all very strange.

    Good, but not great. If anything the ambience is too spacious and you feel a bit lost inside a warehouse, we tend to prefer spaces that are more intimate. The food was well executed, but as our group chose to have one of the banquets we ended up having more dishes that I would consider Indian rather than Thai. Service was impeccable.

    we booked through top table, well in advance as it was a birthday weekend trip to manchester from london. we struggled to be allowed to drink in the bar, when we arrived early for our meal, as we had not booked a table at the bar? the website for booking doesnt tell you to make a reservation for the bar at this restaurant, and you cant get in without one. we persuaded them to let us in, and although it looked good, there wasnt really any atmosphere! the restaurant however served lovely food, wasnt that expensive but again, not much ambience. its also in a remote location, but they will order you a cab before you leave. overall, it was ok!

    Took my bf here for his birthday. I was impressed from start to finish. Food quality was superb, ambiance was rich and the little extras like a 'Happy Birthday' note on the table when we arrived, and the sparkling candle on the mango cheesecake for dessert made it a successful evening. He was very happy, and I was happy spending my hard earned dollars there. I have been raving about it to friends, and will definitely visit again.

Vermilion did not fail to deliver all our expectations and in addition provided a most attractive environment for mixed ages which is a refreshing change.

Ambience was fab and the in the bar really did put the icing on the cake. :-( Staff in the bar and reception were very poor, bordering on rude ! DJ was a good touch but was inflexible in what he played. Overall a very enjoyable evening

    Firstly, me and girlfriend ordered two starters, one was cold, i sent it back! We had pad thai and steak for main, i asked for chicken in the pad thai to accompy the prawns which my girlfriend prefers. When i recieved my bill, to my amazement there was an 'open food' charge for £3.00. The waitress explained this was for my chicken in the pad thai, i asked to speak with the manager because i felt £3.00 for 'extra' chicken was ridiculous especially as there were only two prawns for my girlfriend!! However, she did manage to find four prawn tails??? Disgusting! I paid my bill once the manger had altered the £3.00 charge. We were then accused on two occasions of not paying our bill by a waitress!! I had to PROVE with my reciept i had, we left!

    I booked a table for valentines and having seen the 5 course menu both myself and my wife were really looking forward to the meal however i have to say we came away disappointed.... I guess the main reason for our disappointment is that the menu really wasn't very clear and we had one impression of what we were going to get and ended up with something different! Not what you want on a special occasion, plus the waiter didn't correct us until the food arrived! Also an underwhelming dessert didn't give the wow factor to special meal. Having said that the food itself was fantastic, i cant fault it in anyway and i would come back just to same some of the a la carte menu but overall just not what i expected from the standard of restaurant.

    Having dined here before but never on a Sunday with buffet I was apprehensive as to whether the quality of food would match up to its usual high standards. I was not disappointed. The food and Ambience was still top notch! Only one area of improvement, and that would be more child friendly milder currys/main dishes. Will definitely be going back.

    i have dined at vermillion 3 times now. Both the second and first time were outstanding. However when i booked to go for my boyfriends 21st birthday, we were both dissapointed. We were shown to the bar where we ordered cocktails, we then ordered a second round and were shown to our table. We waited half an hour and the drinks still hadnt come, we asked where they were and were brought the order we had made for our first drinks, totally wrong to what we had ordered the second time. It took a total of 40 minutes for our correct drinks to come. The food as always was lovely, but also when we complained about it being a special occasion we were promised they would make up for it, which they didnt. dissapointing especially as we spent a lot
