Anniversary 9.00pm meal so booked a table and after arriving was led to a reserved window table as requested. Ordered a banquet and the food was as delicious as ever - we tend to call here for special occasions. The only problem we have is negotiating Manchester’s one way systems and road closures which both my Garmin and Google navigation were unaware of - a nightmare. More

Absolutely loved my pizza, each member of staff who served us was excellent, down to earth and just cool! Would go again and would recommend Ply to anyone. Plenty of big tables and booths, great selection of drinks and the menu was varied in terms of ingredients and flavours which gave it that extra quality - as a veggie I didn't feel too limited. Keep it up. More

We were staying nearby and it looked good so booked a table. Delicious meal, great service - extra green sauce offered and eagerly eaten. We had a shared starter which was a generous portion. I had the fish curry, my husband chose lamb, 2 veg sides and a lovely light nan. Not expensive, and we felt full without being uncomfortable. Excellent evening would definitely recommend and return next time we are in Manchester. More

Vegan | Manchester, Manchester

My wife and I are not vegan, but don't mind doing without meat occasionally. We both deliberately did not go for meat substitute meals but chose what I would call proper vegan meals. I had a vegetable stew which was really nice, my wife went for lentil curry which I had half of as we did a swap of meals half way through. The curry was to hot for my wife and there was a lot of it, probably just a bit too much. We both had starters which were very good. The service was excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Very helpful. More

We thought the restaurant would have been busier for a Friday night but that didn’t detract from the evening. The food was very fresh and cooked to order. It meant a slight wait but that was good as we were in no rush. No complaints other than trying to get the right bill but that ended up being a fun part of the night !! @ Waiter - you know who you are !! More
