Contemporary Asian
On the second floor of The Ivy Spinningfields, Manchester is Ivy Asia, a glamourous late night bar and restaurant serving Asian-inspired cocktails alongside a selection of small sharing dishes. The entire floor is illuminated with a show-stopping green, semi-precious stone floor, set against a striking antique gold mirrored bar, gold-gilt ceiling and luxurious Asian fabrics. With a resident DJ every evening creating the soundtrack to your night in Ivy Asia. The Geisha Room, a stunning private room with bespoke mirrored artwork, is also available to hire privately.

The bar, which is open until late, holds a wide range of spirits including a Japanese whisky collection, as well as offering a drinks menu featuring both classic and inventive cocktails.

Lovely food and fancy decor to create a nice fancy birthday meal for four. Cocktails were very nice but I would say very slightly on the pricey side. Unfortunately the meals didn’t come with any sides but of course these can be ordered separately, so not exactly a complaint. Cost of food overall was very reasonable considering the setting and atmosphere, and we all ended up being very full. We had a lovely and attentive waiter who looked after us throughout the meal and gave us suggestions on our food order. They even kindly brought over a small happy birthday dessert at the end which was a very thoughtful touch. One thing I would say about our experience there is that although it was a very decadent evening, the main thing that lets it down is the clientele. Very chavvy and “Love Island” considering my expectations of it being a classy place. But we’re just probably showing our age (early thirties) 😂

The food was amazing. Much better than any regular Ivy in that it tasted way better and therefore was much better value for money.
It was a little too loud to have a normal conversation but I guess that’s to be expected on a Saturday night.

Delicious food fantastic choice would recommend if you want a special evening. Lovely surroundings would suggest music be lowered as it is nice to talk when having a meal.

Third visit and food just as exciting. Popcorn shrimp still a favourite, Massuman curry very good and most of other dishes great too. Would say that duck bao bun was too much bun and duck was dry so left most of it; just not tasty/interesting. Previous dining had a different filling which was better. Was very quiet as a 3pm slot; it did mean we had a lovely booth style table and a chance to enjoy the decor. Service was great, bottle of Malbec was wonderful. Lady at the bar was very friendly. Will not hesitate to go again.

Our table was not ready when we arrived for our reservation. There was no vegan menu and no dietary requirements on the regular menu. We were not notified that the water was no tap water and when a manger spoke to us about this she was confrontational and essentially told us that we were wrong.

The service isn't what it used to be. Difficult to get the attention of any waiter. The food is still pretty good but probably not the best value for money. I think there's better premises in Manchester now.

I booked the table for 6 people and paid a deposit and was late by 25 min due to traffic however my guest
where there 20 min late. On arrival I was told my table had been given away and had to wait 20 min,
1hr 45 min later we got a table no apology or a complimentary drink. I have visited Ivy many time and was disgusted that no one called to check if I was still coming as I had booked and paid a deposit. I have spent alot of money at the Ivy.

I was so embarrassed and was very annoyed.

This place has some of the best food I have ever eaten. The selection of dishes and the quality was just out of this world. Would highly recommend for a special occasion and the service we received was outstanding. Couldn’t fault anything, if I could have given over 5 stars I would.

Outstanding food & service yet again. Best meals we’ve ever eaten.

Only slight disappointment.. booked for a Birthday & was re-assured on arrival. There was no awareness / birthday cake (as told on arrival) at the table. Booking for a special Birthday meal wasn’t any different to coming normally.

Other than that 10/10

Came for my sisters birthday, the venues decor and attention to detail is perfect. The food was exceptional, we even ordered more it was so good. We came for her birthday - you are not the cheapest place to go but certainly the best for an occasion meal. My only critique was that my cocktail was 70% ice. 2 sips and it was gone. Shame as it wa so tasty but at 10.50 a pop, it went too quickly.
Waistress was fab, right northern lass. Made us feel really comfortable and helped us pronounce certain items on the menu.

Food was excellent but service was lacking. Music was a little loud when we walk in and the DJ did tone it down at our request. At least we could have a conversation then. So thank you !

I wouldn’t recommend Ivy Asia as I was disappointed with the food and much preferred the food in the brasserie upstairs. The scallop dish was the most disappointing with two of the tiniest scallops I had ever seen covered up by the crispy ‘bits’ (they were tasty but I’m not sure what they were). On arrival we were told to go to the bar and order a drink. After 10 minutes we approached a member of staff to ask if some one would come to get us for our table. Once she had looked on her iPad she pointed and said that’s yours there!! We scuttled over with drinks in hand and sat down like naughty school children. I would say our experience was not the most attentive or welcoming service we received from our visit.

Fantastic food and atmosphere. The only thing I would comment on is the service charge added to your bill. I understand this if there is a large group but it should be optional. I would always give s tip but I think it should be a choice not something I posed upon you. My sister arrived first and paid for a Diet Coke which had a 45 pence service charge added. Not really acceptable, I don’t think.

Several of our friends are vegetarian and the choice for non-fish and non-meat was very limited.
Fortunately our server was aware that the vege tempura is fried in the same oil as non-vege, but then that limited the options even further. Ostentatious and not great value, but service was excellent

This was for my sons 16th. First time eating in his own with 5 friends. The staff were amazing with them and really looked after them all and made my son feel really special! Thanks to the staff (and the yummy food!) he had a fabulous Birthday!
