Bouncers are absolutely disgusting !! Me and my group of friends went sober as anything and they were talking down to us like children. After a few hours we got told to leave because we weren't allowed outside, nearly leaving our friend on her own! It is nice inside but the staff let it down! Very rude and ignorant, wouldn't...

Was supposed to meet work colleagues here at the start of night out - Arrived stone cold sober but was asked by the bouncers "who was I with" after telling them who I was meeting, I was asked to text one of them to come outside, before I could go in - my female mate was asked a barrage of... More

We came in on a Saturday afternoon for a pre booked table. When we entered there was no direction as to where we went (it would benefit from a host stand). We stopped one of the waitresses who took us in to Tusk and after speaking to her colleague she asked two people to vacate a table for us! No... More

Came here with some friends for lunch food and drinks. We all ordered funky chips which were disappointing, yes they were cheap but still not really worth the money. The service was slow also. This place would be best for some drinks and would come back for that.

I have never been treated so disgustingly by a pair of male bouncers in my life. Started swearing and calling a group of girls names, let us in and then chased us through the club to get us to leave? Talk about power going to their heads. Will not be returning and I'll be sure to let everyone I know,... More

Popped in with the family for the lunch time pizza offer and was seated quickly and made to feel welcome - pizzas came quick enough and were piping hot and lovely - couldn't fault what we all had and we left satisfied.

We went on a Saturday early evening and got a table easily in a booth which was really comfortable. We had pizzas which were so huge I regretted ordering a starter. DJ played nice mix of RnB which was also fine for our kids in their early teens.

I visited here with a group of friends. When we entered the only table available wasn't cleared. A waitress said she would clean it and didn't bother to return. We waited for around 20 minutes for anyone to come to us with a menu or to clean the table. This was then with a very dirty looking cloth with no... More

There's a reason why this 'restaurant' is ranked number 1,073 in Manchester on TripAdvisor. Awful customer service, not enough staff, poor food and ridiculous waiting times all topped off with a rude, arrogant and patronising manager. A quick lunch soon turned into a 2 and a half hour ordeal. Save ya money kids.
