Nice food but massively over priced even with 30% off. A few small plates and a £35 per head bill.
Working in Food I don’t think it’s compettive of the current market and can’t justify £8:40 for a G&T. Just slightly too steep.

Having heard lots of hype about Tattu I took advantage of the 30% January discount twice this week. Our dinner on Monday evening was excellent if "rather pricey". The food served at lunch a couple of days later wasn't in my opinion as good. Being rather partial to raw fish, I had the seared tuna both times and it was considerably better first time round. Second time tasted like it had been pre prepped and steeped in marinade. Would I go back? Yes, but more for the great ambience and service than the food.

Tattu was amazing. Food was cooked and served to perfection.
Slightly expensive, but 30% off in January made a 3 course meal for 4 with drinks etc. Around £40 per head including service charge. For a central Manchester restaurant so high with such good quality food and surroundings.

Had a terrible experience at tattu this weekend. First of all, the woman couldn’t find our booking reservation then I ordered a drink at the bar and when I went to sit down I placed my drink on the table and it smashed on my hand and all over me. I was soaking and had bits of glass on me, there were waitresses around me but they didn’t come over and check I was okay. I did then get a replacement drink after having to go to the bar and wait until someone came over to tell them what happened. We got took to the back room which was completely separate to the restaurant, it had no atmosphere and felt like it wasn’t even part of Tattu. We received our side cold (the asparagus) and the Singapore noodles were dry I then asked for sweet chilli sauce which looked like a teaspoon of oil! We didn’t even want any more drinks or dessert after this and just wanted to leave. Before leaving we went to the toilet, one of the lights wasn’t working one of the toilet seats was hanging off... very very disappointed and will definitely be telling my friends not to go and will be writing a review on trip advisor. Such a bad experience from start to finish on what was meant to be a wonderful occasion.

Great ambience and venue, attentive staff.
Kept waiting for the table. Some great dishes but a surprising number which didn’t quite hit the mark. Dry/overcooked meat, and disappointing desserts.
Worth going just for the dim sum or the duck and watermelon salad though!

I was really looking forward to this. However.
On arrival table not ready. Ordered a skull cocktail, do you mind if it's not in a skull, yes I do, bartender made it anyway.
Booth seating very comfortable. Did not enjoy the staff stretching across me repeatedly to remove excess items on the table . A simple excuse me goes a long way.
Food very tasty but the pork belly was burnt.
Toilets very pretty but the first tap is broken and good luck getting the hand dryers to stay on longer than 3 seconds.
This place is style over substance, form over function. An expensive evening which left me disappointed by the whole experience. I won't be returning which is a massive shame.

Really enjoyed my dinner here. The food was fantastic with a nice selection on the menu to choose from. Our waiter Josh, was also amazing, attentive and informative. We went for the 30% off dining option and our bill was £100 for sharing starters, mains, one dessert and 1 drink each so in terms of value for money I do think it is rather steep especially when paying full price. I'd go back again, but probably for another offer or special occasion.

The restaurant is really beautiful - the tables upstairs by the purple tree are best. I went as a table of 2 for my boyfriend's birthday in Jan 2019. They let me bring a cake in the day before and keep it in the fridge overnight so that it could be a surprise for him after our dinner. Food was really delicious - amazing value for money as portions were generous - i.e. lots of prawns in the noodles. We had red prawn starter, sticky beef starter, kung pao chicken main, prawn noodle main, egg fried rice and chok poi side. It was all delicious - all the meats were succulent and well flavoured, spices were medium, textures were perfect etc. The bill had some sort of promotional discount for £18 although i would have been happy to pay full price.

Only a few tiny negatives - cold breeze from the outside door, i kept my coat on so higher heating would have been ideal for us. Some tables are quite small & are in really narrow places so it's best to ask for a more roomy table when booking.

Loved the whole experience, best place I've tried in Manchester. Will definitely come back!

Food was way too salty and overpowered every other flavour, it was actually difficult to eat. Service was quite ok but not very friendly. Despite knowing I am vegan I was brought a dairy dessert with a sparkler for my birthday, obviously I couldn’t eat it! Quite disappointed as I heard good reviews about this place.

First time trying tattu after being recommended by multiple people for many years. Initial thoughts after entering the restaurant was that the decour was lovely and very modern. However one member of my party went to the restrooms and was disgusted by the state that they were in. Management were informed straight away and we were told they would be cleaned.

As our table was not yet ready we went to the downstairs bar area to order drinks. We were served within a timely manner and the majority of drinks were good. However, we ordered a "tattu twinkle" and the champagne used to create the cocktail was at the end of the bottle and resulted in a flat drink. We complained about this and a new drink was made from a fresh bottle. For this cocktail being £14 and in such a highly regarded restaurant it would have been expected as standrad that a new bottle of champagne would have been opened to create this drink.

For our food we were seated in one of the private booths. We were served promptly by a lovely waitress who we unfortunately didn't manage to catch the name of.
Starters were all of good quality and enjoyed, but we were not informed that they would all come out at different times. For main course the beef fillet with caramel soy was amazing. Another member of our party however ordered the ribs and was disappointed by them. The ribs themselves contained very little meat and did not fall easily off the bone. The meat instead had to be carved off the ribs, which was quite difficult. For dessert we ordered chocolate fondant, white chocolate igloo's and the chocolate wonton's. The latter two desserts were lovely. However only one of the chocolate fondant desserts tasted nice and the other was very dry. We told our waitress about this and without even asking she took this off of our bill.

The food at tattu was either outstanding or very average and lacking consistency. The price was only reasonable due to the 30% off. I wouldn't recommend if paying full price.

Tattu for me is a place where I order food from the small plates menu and then look forward to dessert with coffee. Their food is delicious and beautiful to look at. Try out the seared tuna and pear crumble . Those were my favourite during this visit.

daughters birthday celebrations so special occasion and tattu made the evening lovely. great booth for seating so intimate, opted for set menu and added some starter plates...all delicious and beautifully presented. main courses lovely and the puddings very special...service was very attentive and perfect, drinks topped up and water always filled etc...

only critique was the hygiene around the toilet areas....clearly not serviced/cleaned regularly enough and on a busy saturday night this was a little unpleasant.
