Me and my partner came Saturday late lunch after previously having a lovely meal at Tattu in Leeds.It was our anniversary so we thought we would come to celebrate. Overall the food was such a let down, we ordered the pork it was very tasteless and fatty. We also ordered the ribs, again very fatty. Previously we had the duck buns in Leeds that were honestly delicious, we were both so let down with the duck and pancakes which i believe are new on the menu. All the pancakes were stuck together and ripped into pieces so we ended up leaving a few of them, the portion sizes are obviously small which we knew but for the price we expected them to have slightly more. All of the dishes were lukewarm! We left feeling so disappointed as we expected so much better.

Tattu is my absolute favourite restaurant in Manchester. The service is always incredible and I love the decor and ambience - it never fails. The food and drinks are also delicious and inventive. My only criticism on this occasion is that the set lunch has changed and although still good value isn’t as good as before. The portions are now smaller and the crispy chilli beef (my fave!) isn’t as nice. Still delicious though and reasonable value against the a la carte menu.

Nice surroundings and good atmosphere. . Server friendly and pleasant but had a scruffy jacket on with food spillage down the front and the hem frayed and hanging down at the back- not a good look. Small plates of scallops very tasty and Crispy pork belly good but a little over cooked. Mixed up our mains order and came with another pork belly instead of duck (left it anyway and said it's on the house) then added it to the bill, but removed when pointed out. Mains ok. Cherry Blossom dessert lived up to expectations and Flight of the Phoenix & Skull Candy Cocktails mixed to perfection. Overall good experience but let down by some lack of attention to detail.

People and ambience were lovely. Food beautifully presented as expected. 3 of six dishes lovely, 1 nice, 2 disappointing which were the crispy duck and sea bass. Duck was fatty, insufficiently crisp and the pancakes were overdone and could not be separated. In fact the last 2 could not be lifted from the steamer bottom, the whole box came up with them. The sea bass itself was beautifully cooked however the delicate sauce was too delicate, it was almost tasteless. I gathered the majority of the slivers of ginger together and ate them at one time and still got barely a ginger flavor. I understand ginger varies but this felt marinated too long before use. For almost london prices during a quiet lunch period, I was surprised the chef had not noticed these things. Am willing to return and try again.

I took my daughter for a celebratory meal for her 21st birthday. I asked for glasses of prosecco to be on the table for when we arrived, which they were. They didn't have the starters we originally ordered but we ordered our 2nd choice and they were delicious. Because they didn't have our 1st choice of starter the manager, Damon, said they were 'on the house'. Our main meals were gorgeous and the salmon and sea bass were cooked to perfection. The waitress brought a sparkler and a fortune cookie for my daughter. They then brought a complimentary dessert for us to share.
Damon and the team made us feel really special and made it a very special 21st birthday meal. We noticed that Damon was friendly and chatty with his team, yet maintaining a high level of service and professionalism and it all added to a great relaxed night. We'll definitely be back and I've already recommended you to friends and work colleagues.
Thank you!!!!

The starters weren't what I expected, the main was okay. I had to go have a McDonald's afterwards as I was still hungry. The staff didn't listen and looked miserable. I asked 1 member to tell me before bringing out suprise birthday sparkler for my partner and she obviously forgot and brought it out without my knowledge and looked miserable in doing so. Would not recommend to anyone. K thanks bye.

Excellent food and great service, however we ordered tapas and expected it to come as it was ready, instead everything turned up at the same time pretty quickly after we'd ordered and so some of it went a bit cold before we could eat it. Maybe our fault, perhaps you need to ask for it not to come all together

A trip to Manchester for Mother and Daughter special time together!

We haven’t dined at Tattu before and totally enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. All the staff were friendly and very helpful; in particular our server Pierre. The food was absolutely delicious; as were the sharer Cocktails. I totally recommenced it for both special occasions and daily dining alike.

I live in Birmingham and my Daughter in London so we may also try our local Tattu’s but Manchester will be a hard act to follow ... thank you so much!

Not too easy to find but well worth the search. Warm, welcoming staff, beautiful surroundings, plenty of space , extensive menu known in depth by attentive table attendants, good wine list, impressive,
Only downside is too loud background music isn't background-it intrudes. We had to ask to move from a cosy booth because a speaker was right overhead and we had to shout to each other across the table.
Would recommend as an adventure and a unique experience in Manchester.

It’s not the first time I go to the restaurant for dinner, this time for a friend’s birthday. The service was abdolutely horrible. We requested for the cake we brought with us to be served after the food when we ask for the dessert menu and they said that was fine they would let our waitor know. Instead, we waited 20 mins whilst the cake was sat behind us for no reason. We had to speak to reception 3 times till the cake was finally brought to the table. When it was finally brought to the table, there weren’t any plates or cutlery, which we had to wait a long time for. It was such a shame as I usually love tattu and their service is usually much better, seems like they don’t do well with large tables. The food was delicious but unfortunately could not compensate for the horrid service hence the rating.
