    Excellent food and service. We had boxing day thai curry and macaroni cheese. Both delicious and well presented. Curry a little overpriced. Restaurant was very busy but as we had booked we bypassed the queue and was seated straight away.

    Booking was easy through open table and was all ready for when we arrived slightly early. Service was on point, thanks Laura, very attentive and knowledgeable. We were told in advance about the two items not available of the menu which although missing allowed me to choose without the disappointment of being told later that it was out of stock. Food and drinks arrived quick and were all really taste. Overall great lunch out

    Good variety on the menu but small portions and slow service for drinks. Granted, staffing seems to be an issue everywhere at present. Overall, fair value.

    We came to have a brunch to celebrate my son birthday. When we arrived we were greeted by a polite front of house staff, who took us to our table. The food was delicious, one of the best matcha latte I ever had. Overall we had great experience. We certainly recommend it, and would come back again in the near future.

    Always thought it was a glorified microwaved food kind of place...wow...couldn't be more wrong!! So fresh, flavoursome, tasty, it really was one of the best meals we've had in a long time...and I include "posh" expensive restaurants in that. Excellent!!!!!

    Carrot cake donuts are a must have! Quieter than other restaurants in Trafford Centre, but reasonable food with a few more healthy options than elsewhere.

    Was really good food, and generally very good service. My only two constructive points were that when the person who brought our drinks started taking our order, he suddenly stopped because it appeared the manager told him to swap with another waiter, so we had to repeat our order. And the second point was I would have loved a coffee from the menu but was told the coffee machine had been “switched off”. Really enjoyed the food though and definitely enjoy coming to bills.

    I have been to many bills but this one is the worst. The breakfast items were forgotten on both dishes and when asked it was like it was our fault. They were busy but a restaurant should be judged on how they function when busy not quiet

    I usually love Bills, we come for breakfast in the school holidays, however due to an early appointment it was lunch today. Burgers were asked to be well cooked, when they arrived though, all the food on the plate was swimming in the runny blood... Whilst the burgers were very pink (especially for well done burgers!) the liquid was coming from the pot of fries, dread to think what they had been stood on before being placed on the plate. This was rectified by staff, one burger was sent back to be cooked properly and this arrived once everyone else had eaten. The other member of our party was too put off and just ate a small bowl of fries. The price of both burgers was knocked off the bill and whilst staff were apologetic, there was no explanation offered so we are at a loss as to what was going on in the kitchen that day. I will venture back, but will stick to breakfasts and not risk lunch or dinner again😔

    Service was good very attentive and child food came first which was a great idea. Crayons were supplied. All food was disappointing except for crab cakes. Adult fish finger sandwiches had less fish fingers than child portion, bread was dry and lacked any dressing. Steak and chips was supposed to be medium but was well done and dry. White wine wasn't chilled enough and glasses were wet. Very disappointed, as we've been to Bill's in York and were impressed with the food.

    Told there would be a wait as short staffed, fair enough.....however people who arrived after us were served meals before us and lack of drinks ignored. Had to ask each time. Food was ok, one order was wrong rectified but again a long wait for the correct order, was taken off the bill. Arrived at 6.50 left at 9.15 that’s how long we waited! Short wait? No, was ages.
