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.

Another solid performance from the Ivy, I am happy to pay a service charge but 12.% add to the bill and anything you by from the bar leaves you with a sour taste.
To add 12.5 % to wine that is already heavily marked up in price is a little heavy.

Went for my husbands Birthday and noted it on booking. It was lovely that it was acknowledged because a lot of other restaurants despite asking special requirements never even acknowledges what was mentioned. We’ve been before but took our 11 years old and he was impressed and commented how the food was just bursting with flavour. Brilliant restaurant, service and staff. Stunning ladies toilets, it made me chuckle on my visit to ladies, I overheard some other ladies commenting how beautiful the toilet was haha!

Celebrating a birthday. Arrived at allocated time slot and were seated straight away. First impressions was wow last impressions were wow. Fabulous service from start to finish. Food was amazing and we loved all our choices even the black cod priced at £29.50 this was actually one of our favourite dishes.
Staff were very attentive and even though every table was clearly booked all evening we did not feel rushed.
Only negative was we were slightly hemmed in.
The bathrooms were an experience as well.

The food was all delicious but only gave it 4 stars as very limited gluten free options. My fellow diners also all rated food highly. The ambience and decor is all rather bling for our tastes but is well done, as you'd expect from any Ivy restaurant. Very busy so they obviously know how to appeal to local demographic. Good service, again as you would expect from The Ivy. Extensive wine menu, different from brasserie, again designed to appeal to this demographic. House champagne was good and better value than cheaper wines. Bit noisy because of all the hard surfaces. But definitely worth a visit.

Service inconsistent, meals came at separate times due to a mistake in the kitchen, but meal was compt. Toilets disgusting with toilet seat lying on the floor next to the bin. Clientle vulgar and loud. Patrons allowed to enter wearing baseball cap and tracksuit bottoms, not what you expect at a supposedly high end establishment.

Great food and good service (attentive and friendly, just right). Atmosphere really good (even for a Monday night) and the music noise level from the DJ was perfect to be able to talk over dinner.

Very beautiful place, with soo much pozzaz, considering the quirky atmosphere I thought the food would hold up, but the sea bass we had was meant to be Thai flavoured yet lacked any sort of flavour, but was nicely cooked. The duck curry was quite bland, also noticed the food served down stairs was basically served upstairs aswell with some additions.

The starter was the only nice part but quite simple, and I wouldn’t say very ‘asian’

For a asian inspired dining experience it lacked the taste.

If you want a experience of unique dining space and a bit of entertainment, then go for that.

It's a beautiful restaurant, great place to take pictures. It was very noisy, I didn't like the food to be honest. Starters were fine but my main course was undercooked.i went there for my birthday so didn't want to ruin my mood so didn't say anything at that time.

My partner and I visited the Ivy, as part of a surprise trip away for his birthday. I chose Ivy Asia, and was it was beyond my expectations. From the food to the service, it was hands down the best dining experience for both of us. The food was outstanding, to say the least. We tried 4 dishes, and could not fault a thing. Upon making the reservation online, I added a note that it was my partners birthday - which was fully acknowledged by all staff. From the gentlemen greeting us on the first floor, to the waiter who served us for the evening he was wished a happy birthday, asked about his day and even received a complimentary candle lit desert.

Thank you to all staff at the Ivy Manchester!

Food good however some dishes rather expensive for what you got. Our waitress Katie was excellent nothing too much trouble. Toilets a problem... designed with sink and mirror in cubicle therefore young girls were going in putting on makeup and chatting inside and generally hogging the toilets!..... long queues!! Went up to rooftop bar wow! Lovely setting great views Lovely attentive sommelier Matt! Great at his job ...would recommend the place had a lovely time

Ivy Asia, offers a truly wow factor in terms of décor and ambience. It really is a talking point.
The food, although tasty, was a little too deep fried for our liking. The Thai Sea Bass, which wasn't fried, was delicious though! Not sure I would rush back as think there are better Asian food options in Manchester.

The starters were great, chicken gyoza really tasty. The mains were disappointing, steak was small, ordered rice and broccoli to go with it, very plain as no sauce. Desert sounded good on paper, white chocolate bomb, but was actually quite sickly.

I really loved the place and I would both go again and recommend but the only reason I won’t give 5 stars was that it was too noisy for the meal. We basically couldn’t hear each other talk which I feel for the price we pay isn’t ideal.
