Burgers were fab. £1 for the tiniest pot of the famous sauce was a bit silly but enjoyable sauce anyway.

Firstly they don’t tell you it’s upstairs!
There was no atmosphere and the inside was dark cold and not welcoming. Not as the Instagram shows.
You get sent to a table and told to order via the app.

My first wow moment was being charged £3 for cream soda to be given and 89p can of BARR and a glass.

The food looks amazing on Instagram but IRL is was so disappointing. Small portions of sauce laden beef patties in a bun

The wonder fries made me wonder where they were as they too were covered in sauce so much they few chips there were swimming.

A disappointing experience, which put a dampener on my birthday celebrations

Because of the pandemic there was a reduced menu but we both still found something yummy to eat. The vegan burger was lovely.

Long service time for food, couple arrived after us and got served before. Extremely loud party of 6 very obviously not living together, no efforts made to stop them being very loud.

Food was amazing.

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.
