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.

A lovely welcoming restaurant with ornate decoration and friendly, helpful attentive staff who helped us with menu choices and looked after us very well. The attention to detail on every dish we were served was exceptional. We all agreed that our favourite dish was the Prawn Steamed Dumpling although we could not fault any dish we had ... we will definitely be returning!

We sat around 8.15pm and had an amazing time. From the doorman to the front of house and servers, everyone was attentive, helpful and lovely. The food was INCREDIBLE. We had three smaller plates to share and then shared one curry and one rice between the two of us, which was plenty. Highly recommended.

Service is mediocre but I’m not surprised because the English aren’t known for catering and customer service. We had a cocktail at the garden and there were 6 staff members in their own world and maybe 15 guest upstairs max. Someone finally took our drink order which took extra time to make.

One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Every dish was amazing, the service was faultless. From the moment you first walk in until you leave, the level of customer service was second to none. I will most definitely be attending again. Cannot praise Ivy Asia enough, absolutely brilliant, 110%.

Attended 14/4/19, table of 7 lunchtime. The waitress (sarah) was amazing, couldn't do enough for us and very friendly. Didn't bother us unless needed (something that personally bothers me when its repeated interruptions). The food was fantastic, can honestly say the tastiest meal I've had to date. We tried many things on the menu, but my personal favourites were the chicken gyoza, asparagus skewers, crispy squid and the popcorn shrimp. Everything was very fresh and full of flavour and arrived promptly for a table of 7. The bar staff were cheerful, friendly and open to experimenting with recipes. Plenty of choice of alcohol. Nice soft music in the background (perfect for us lot being hungover!). The decor is absolutely stunning, many photos were taken even down to the ceilings in the loos, elevator doors, chopstick holders and oh my gosh the floor!!! 😍 Have already made plans to return and will definitely make a repeat journey for any special occasion even though we live over 2 hours away. All in all a 10/10 for experience, quality, taste and staff, it is thoroughly recommended. Make sure you try as much as possible and would definitely agree with the waiting staff; allow for 3 dishes per person. You wont be disappointed with this place.

The food was fantastic, as was the service, however we did find this restaurant very noisy and we were unable to have a reasonable conversation without raising out voices to be herd, (on our date night) I think the table we was given was right next to the ivy walkway where people were constantly taking selfies of themselves which was off putting ... I think the optional service charge is a bit wrong when it’s actually added into the bill total. Really should be as it says optional! Which is off putting .i would happy tip well where we go but I find it wrong to ask for service charges where people may find the experience may not always be worth the extra charge.

As we were sat near the bar a large crowd came in, then it started to be very noisy.
2 hours is not a long time in the resturant, although understand covers are important.

Fantastic decor and great service at the bar. However, the dinner was not as pleasant as expected. Food was delicious but the waiting time between dishes was too long, which did not correspond to a dinner experience but rather like we had like two dinners. Moreover, the waiter pushed us to order 6 dishes for 2 people as « it was the concept at Ivy Asia », which was finally largely too much. And the steamed rice was not cooked, which is quite outstanding for an Asian dinner restaurant. We were not charged for the rice. But it should be embarrassing for the cooks. We will definitely come back anyway to give it a second chance.

We weren’t charged a penny for our meal as it was so bad & were told the manger would personally contact us the next day which was yesterday but hasn’t !!
The girl that served us was fantastic & they couldn’t have been more apologetic but the food was abmismal , I would not eat in the Asia again , having eaten twice in the Bras & had no issues we expected great things but not to be ! Have a table for 9 booked on Jun 1st & we will most definitely cancel , all fur coat & no knickers unfortunately !

Had a bad experience downstairs at the original Ivy last time round, however reluctantly decided to give the Ivy Asia a go this time.

Very glad we went, the food was superb. A job well done in redeeming itself after last time round which was one of my worst dining experiences to date at the main restaurant. However I would definitely recommend the Ivy Asia and it seems that after a frantic opening the restaurant may have found the right staff for the job.

Visited 7th April - Sakura Sunday, in celebration of Cherry Blossom Season, We enjoyed in style by sipping on cocktails from our exclusive cocktail list, created using the finest ingredients from The House of Suntory including Roku Japanese Gin and Haku Japanese Vodka. We were delight with Spicy Edamame, Dumplings, Prawn & Chive Nori, Duck Bao Buns, Kimchi Rice, Popcorn Shrimp and Beef Sirloin. Whilst, having a fabulous DJ to listen to with (of course...) Prosecco......and many thanks to the fantastic staff especially Sarah, she gave us 120%, making our day unforgettable. Management please thank her personally from me. You have fabulous staff.....last 4 times I visited Urie and the manager were outstandingly brilliant.

Our waiter was so attentive and even gave a complimentary glass of fizz which we just felt was a really nice touch. Food was delicious and we will definitely visit again!

From the moment you walk through the doors with the polite green men assisting you knew it was to be special. And so it was. The Asian bar was just as one imagines an Asian bar to be. Shades of Raffles in Singapore. Glorious service. Glorious cocktails. The table was set. We were looked after superbly with just perfect business and attention . All the food was perfect without exception. The deserts were exceptional. A memorable birthday evening which we hope to repeat VERY soon. Next time the Roof Terrace just to complete the set!

Really enjoyed the food and the decor is beautiful however the atmosphere was noisy and the dance music did not suit a restaurant environment. Did not feel relaxed and the experience felt rushed.
Service charge also included in drinks at the bar.

Food and service was fantastic, but the majority of the tables (including ours) were right next to the bar so people trying get passed and a group of drunk loud blokes were annoying. I prefer 20stories next door

Was super excited to attend Ivy Asia, after a fab dinner at the roof garden a couple of months before.
Can not fault the food and the service was great but the bar was crowded and load!
What is meant to be a high end venue, that people wait weeks/months for a table, seemed more like an average bar that serves food on the side.
My advice would be to open an Ivy bar, serving all signature drinks and separate to the restaurant!
