Visited as part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme and got the "£20 Rushi Meal Deal". I ordered the 2020stk and my partner ordered the vegan burger. Both were delicious and filled us up nicely! My partner commented on the meat-like texture and taste of the vegan burger!

I came across Almost Famous when searching for somewhere to eat in Manchester ahead of the Stereophonics gig. Reviews were good so our expectations were relatively high - we were not disappointed! The food was all served piping hot and was very tasty. The service was also of a VERY high standard. Our server was called Olive - she was fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble, always smiling and happy to help and things just happened - drinks spotted empty and orders taken, napkins replenished etc - really good!

We were very happy with every aspect of our visit and would not hesitate to recommend or return next time we are in town.

One thing to watch - we didn’t know where it was and there is only an A board outside so we missed it first time around the block - glad we found it!

Relaxing and cosy atmosphere. Food and customer service was fantastic. Very interesting interior design and Christmas ceiling! We were there for a birthday celebration and everything ran smoothly. Sat on a large table but everyone still felt very close. More external signage would be helpful! A lot of stairs to climb.

Good burgers and good service. The toilets are a disgrace so some of our party wasn't happy and was worried about hygiene if the front of house was so bad.

The food was no where near normal standard. Burgers were over cooked and the chips were soooo salty we couldn't eat them. No waiting area when waiting for table. No signs to know where you need to go.

Overall experience was let down by the service. We were told that the kitchens had a problem so our food orders would be delayed. We asked whether anything could be offered to us as recompense against our wait and response from floor manager was that he hadn't eaten since 08:30am that morning ! I would have expected staff to at least say that our first drinks were on the house.

Long wait for food that was good but not worth the wait for the price. One if our party had dietary requirements and informed the waiting staff but on 3 seperate occasions they failed to listen correctly and brought out food with sauce on. None of our burgers came out with the right fries leaving several people eating their burger completely before their fries arrived.

This place was filthy!
We felt uneasy eating here the cleanliness was poor!
Filthy toilets all sharing 1 dirty sink a mirror that wasn’t cleaned.
The table we sat at was dirty.
My glass had lipstick on the side (bright pink)
The food was actually nice just a shame it was so dirty.
Service was good.

The food is on another level but the service not so much. We were also charged for some “Nutella Fries” that we neither asked for nor received but we couldn’t really be bothered mentioning it because it was £4 between five of us and it had taken a while to get the bill in the first place.

Generally good, and the burger I had was certainly delicious, but when we went most of the draught beers weren't available. There is also no food besides chips suitable for those with egg allergies. I thought the menu was a little long considering hat most of the burgers looked very similar. I would either shorten it or make the burgers more different from each other (like include a chicken burger - that way there would be variety and someone with an egg allergy could eat something besides chips). Finally, I found my chips way too salty. It would have been nice to have an option for no/less salt.

Absolutely stunning food and was reasonably priced. Service was only marred by not being asked if we wanted more drinks but was great otherwise. Would recommend and dine here again. Thumbs up.
