Good Vegetarian Options
Evelyn's is a neighbourhood restaurant and bar set in the Smithfield Building on Northern Quarter's iconic Tib Street. The restaurant is open daily from 9am till late serving the usual suspects for breakfast, lunch, dinner and mouth watering roasts on a Sunday all with a touch of the Asian continent. Alongside the Asian inspired menu the bar serves up great artisan coffee, modern wines and a considered cocktail list.

The Daisy has recently launched in the basement and is open for pre and post dinner drinks Wednesday through to Saturday with entertainment running on Friday and Saturday from 6pm. You can always book ahead to avoid disappointed for the bar at thedaisynq.com.

Fantastic experience overall. Only reason not getting five stars is that one of our dishes (French Toast) was surprisingly smaller than the other dish (Pancakes). Given both very similar dishes, for one to be less than half the size was disappointing.

We were going out for my dad's birthday, some of us are vegan and vegetarian and some have allergies, so we picked Evelyn's because of the vegetarian and vegan options. We had booked for 8 o'clock on Sunday evening.

Steven - the manager rang us at about 6 o'clock to let us know that they had run out of some meals, which was a lovely thought to let us decide. He assured us that we could pick off the main weekday menu as well, even emailing us the menus to help us decide.

From when we got there it was a really friendly experience. Our waitress Yemi was an absolute delight, laughing and joking with my dad and explaining the menu, suggesting drinks and just generally being very helpful.

The food was gorgeous, and as the menu has many plant-based choices we were able to share food and everyone could try.

We had brought a cake for my dad and Yemi, without being asked, put some candles in it for him, which was a lovely touch.

Honourable mention to Jake and Luca the bartenders who made us some gorgeous cocktails including a bespoke mojito for my dad.

And as a lovely touch, they took my dad's drinks off the menu.

All together a delightful evening. Thank you to all.

Gorgeous place, fantastic service and loved that the lychee lemonade was big enough for 2 glasses - very good value and presentation.
Sadly my Choice of the coconut chicken was out - and weirdly I had a feeling this might be the Case (the description sounded amazing so I knew it would be popular and it was so busy) I guess my feedback would be to ensure you have surplus ingredients for the more popular dishes. I think the crab burger could have been served with more to increase the portion size and maybe with something other than a lettuce leaf - for the money and as advertised as “big”.
Anyway, we would definitely come back, it was lovely overall.

Roast was a decent portion and left everyone full. The lunch pancakes and SOOO GOOD! And the honeycomb on top is just delicious. Definitely try it!
Vietnamese Coffee wasn’t anything special though
Overall my group had a good time there :)

I came here for a bridesmaid proposal. Staff were very accommodating for my balloons/Brad Pitt mask and the service was fantastic. The staff even gave their own reviews of their favourite Brad Pitt films. Couldn’t be happier with how well they treated us. Excellent food too - thank you so much!

Evelyn's was recommended to me by a friend and did not disappoint. My tuna poke was delicious and perfectly seasoned, my boyf has the courgette burger and spicy fries, which he said was also delicious. The room was buzzy and the décor really on trend. The servers were very nice, and avoided that too cool for school attitude that a lot of similar places have

Excellent food as always, and more than happy to check for specific allergens not listed on the menu. Super helpful staff, a good atmosphere, and great value are some of the many reasons we keep going back (as well as the amazing brownie!)

The decor and ambience is amazing, we were seated quickly which was great. The taste of the food was amazing and great presentation but most of the group felt the portions were small which meant we had to pick up a further snack at the next place.

My favourite place for brunch every time I visit Manchester. The staff are lovely, the food is incredible - especially the Shakshuka - and great cocktails. A must visit place for anyone venturing to Manchester.

We had a lovely dinner in Evelyn's (I've eaten here a few times and it's always been amazing - particularly the buttermilk pancakes on the breakfast menu). We had a gorgeous chicken satay noodle dish for our main and delicious French toast with ice cream and honeycomb for dessert. Both dishes were absolutely delicious, beautifully cooked with tasty, well balanced flavours. Our waiter was also fantastic. He was really polite and couldn't have done any more for us. I highly recommend Evelyn's and I can't wait to return! Thank you.
