5 out of 5 stars

Taking inspiration from the Orient and body art, this marriage of food and setting is pretty much perfect.

Tattu is the brain child of a charming pair of brothers, Adam and Drew Jones. Their vision to create a sophisticated, modern and luxurious take on Chinese food has resulted in one of the most extraordinary new venues in Manchester.

Through a combination of that strong vision, of attention to detail and of a fine selection of staff, Tattu catapults itself towards the very top of the best restaurants in the city.

It's absolutely stunningly beautiful.

The downstairs bar has a nautical feel, dark wood, deep set booths with padded leather seating, huge anchors suspended from above, so you feel a little like you're being whisked off by pirates of the Orient. Cocktails with exotic flavours like chrysanthemum set you up for the trip to the top deck.

Even the stairway delights, and if the sight of the restaurant, with its incredible cherry blossom tree which you can dine beneath and elegant walkway, doesn't make you stop in your tracks, you should probably head out to Pizza Hut instead. 

There's also a more private space, their Parlour, which offers a more intimate experience. Look out for the individually tattooed chairs.

All of this would be fine and dandy but wouldn't amount to something truly special without food to match the space.

And here, Tattu excels even further with a quality of food not common in the city. From wild mushroom spring rolls like you've never tasted to succulent black cod in saffron and the opulent 'Silk Road' desert, the chefs creating these delights are truly inspiring.

With welcoming, friendly staff who really know their stuff, the Tattu brothers don't seem to have put a foot wrong. It won't be the cheapest meal out you've ever had, but when an experience is as good as this, it's worth every penny.
