Global, International
Easy-going Neighbourhood Cafe Bar with middle eastern/ asian inspired menu. Known for being a go-to destination brunch and dinner spot amongst locals and travellers. Evelyn’s is humble, unfussy food made with love in a relaxed environment. Cooking over charcoal adds to the menu's identity and gives the food personality and attitude.

DJs play Fridays and Saturdays in The Daisy, a Parisian inspired cocktail den in the basement. Expect late night bougie escapism with plush, loft apartment style houseparty vibes. Walk-ins welcome but bookings are highly recommended.

Really good menu, all freshly prepared. Busy but we didn't have to wait very long for food or drinks.
Tables nicely spaced out , thoroughly sanitised in between diners.
Lovely waitress.

The food was average, we were greeted by a very rude man who kept rushing us although our table was not ready at the right time. When taking our order he was very hostile and did not make us feel welcomed.

Overall had higher expectations of this restaurant but it’s all just a hype and the way we were treated ruined the experience for us. Music was also too loud so if you’re going for w catch up with friends i wouldn’t recommend.

Absolutely the most tasty burger I’ve ever had. I’ve eaten here loads, it is my favourite restaurant in Manchester. Honestly I’ve never had a meal or desert or whatever from Evelyn’s that I didn’t think was above and beyond taste wise. Annoyingly we had to ask the waiter to check on our drinks twice and we nearly finished our meal by the time they came and bless him he went behind the bar and did them himself in the end. Still my fave restaurant ☺️.

If you are in Manchester a must try. We visited Manchester twice in a week and missed out the first time but made sure we tried it on our return and was well worth the wait. Already planning to visit Manchester again purely for Evelyn’s, that’s how good the food and drinks are. You can tell everything is fresh and they put their passion into everything they do, would definitely recommend

We had a brilliant lunch for a friends birthday. The food was delicious, however the service we received from the floor host Jason was exceptional. It seems like he was looking after every table by himself & doing it with a smile! Will definitely back, and that’s not just because of the food!

Whenever I’m in Manchester I have to pay Evelyn’s a visit, for me it’s the best brunch in town. Shakshuka is absolutely amazing, the Bloody Mary’s and Espresso Martinis give you a lovely little pick me up the morning after the night before and the staff are always friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. It’s amazing quality and range of food, lovely ambience and delicious cocktails keep me coming back time after time. A must visit if you are in town.

As the first visit since lockdown ended the wait was worth it. It was as great s it always is and the slightly different menu was as yummy as ever. Thai Green Curry with a side of crispy tofu can’t beat it. Here’s to another visit very soon.
