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.

    Average food, my meal was missing some key components. Service wasn’t great and my salad was overpriced. Would not go back given the alternative options.

    The environment of the restaurant is good, there were enough natural lights and the tables are comfortable too. The roll was amazing, taste exactly like Taiwan fried chicken, however the breakfast is so so.

    Had dinner here. Dinner food wasn't great - main dish was stodgy and basic. Extremely overpriced for the quality. However, the actual ambiance and environment of the venue is very nice. From what I've seen, the brunch and lunches look much better than dinner.

    Wonderful atmosphere, incredible standard of customer service and delicious food. We felt very welcomed from the moment we walked in and every single member of staff was kind and courteous. Potentially lacking for vegan options if we were to return regularly but the food we did have was spectacular. Me and my partner left very impressed and pleased. We are new to Manchester so came here on a recommendation from a friend and were not disappointed. Will be my new go to recommendation from now.

    Brought some family here for a girly brunch and it did not disappoint! Food and drinks were fantastic (the spiced sausages and the Taiwanese fried chicken were to die for!!!!). Shout-out to Jason who served us. He exceeded his social media reputation as a nice guy and was so attentive! Definitely going again!

    Came here as tried to get in before but so busy couldn’t get a table so we booked this time. Comes up as one of best places for breakfast in Manchester on Google but I’ve been to better. Our waiter was super and friendly but the menu was limited. Food was lovely but the restaurant was dirty. We sat near the side of the kitchen and it was filthy. Cobwebs and thick dust on the metal shelving in kitchen area.

    The restaurant is a lovely space - even though in the city centre, its outlook is quite green. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious but the portions were on the small side. But having said that, the price was not eye-watering so good value for money overall.

    Had the Sunday roast dinner. Chicken was great but thought the roast potatoes could have been better. They were quite powdery and not very crispy. Had to wait ages for our dessert was worth it. Very good apple and rhubarb crumble.
