The restaurant itself is in the same building as the Peaky Blinders bar. This did make the restaurant slightly noisy as you could hear the live music however the music itself was very good so we didn't mind hearing it at all !

We had an amazing experience at Ocean Treasure for my mums 70th birthday celebration. Loved the combination of the Peaky Blinders bar with the live music. The service was excellent and the food was the best Chinese dishes we have had in a long time, was quite pricey but worth it for special occasion. Would definitely recommend.

After reading several good reviews for this restaurant we were looking forward to a great meal. We were very disappointed. Food was very average and definitely overpriced.
Staff seemed to have no interest in us whatsoever, and I can’t remember any of them even smiling as they served us our food. Certainly, we were not asked at any point whether we were enjoying our meal.
We knew from other reviews that the restaurant overlooked a busy bar and there may well be live music playing, but I didn’t expect it to be quite as loud and raucous. We could barely hear one another speak!
We dined at 8.00pm and the restaurant was not at all busy, perhaps because of some of the reasons I’ve mentioned.

Food was exceptional, cooked to absolute perfection, highly recommend any seafood off the menu. Staff were also very friendly and hospitable, and the interior design was beautiful. It is however open to the elements of the popular Peaky Blinders Bar which it sits above, so don’t expect a blissfully quiet meal. This was no issue really as we were seated away from the noise. Noise is there but not overwhelming. Would definitely go again!

Not obvious as to where restaurant is as within pub Peaky Blinders and no signage outside nor inside. Once located it has opulent decor and warm welcome from host. Serving staff were attentive to start and then they forgot about our main courses we weren’t overly fussed as the live music was good. Food is amazing quality, quantity and taste second to none.

It’s wasn’t very easy to find that was the only bad point. There were no signs in the street so it wasn’t very clear you had to go inside and upstairs in the Peaky Blinders bar.

Food was average, I've had better food from local Chinese takeaways also due to bar being on ground floor. It was pretty loud. However service was good and also restaurant ambiance was nice.

While the service was good and the waiters very professional, the food itself left a lot to be desired. Expected much better, particularly for the price. Of the 5 main dishes we ordered, only 1 was deemed satisfactory by our table of 5.

The venue is quite remarkable once inside as you wouldn’t expect it to look that way from the street. The staff are lovely and friendly and the service is very professional. Unfortunately the food is average at best. The soft shell crab was drenched in oil and the batter was too thick. It tastes like a deep fried fish from a chippy in over used oil. The duck was average. As was the pagoda style chicken. The cubed beef was nice and tender and enjoyable but overall very disappointing considering it’s a family run business that’s been around for years. For what we had extremely overpriced. We’ve had far more tasty and affordable experiences in Chinatown.

Food was really good and tasty but experience let down by overall poor service. Waiter had really bad attitude and just acted like taking an order was beneath him. The waiter that served the food was marginally better but once our main course food was cleared, we were left to sit for nearly an hour without dessert menu arriving, checking if we needed more drinks or the bill. Pretty rubbish really - can see why it was half empty on a saturday night. Such a shame.

Me and my wife Chose to eat here New Year’s Eve so we were not to far from Manchester town hall for the fireworks. Not easy to find, as we ended up asking a few times until one of the door men showed us where to go. Down stairs was a very busy bar/club but upstairs where the restaurant was, was a lot quieter , even with the music in the background.
The variety of food on offer was great and seemed to cater for all different tastes. While we did not chose one of the banquet meals, the other choices did not disappoint and we had more than enough to eat and the quality and service were spot on.
The price was a bit more than what we would nornmally pay, but for a special occasion or just wanting something different it was worth the money.
