This is a favourite of mine. Just round the corner from my boyfriends in Didsbury but definitely worth travelling to from afar. The restaurant is very small so you may need to book. The size makes for a great atmosphere though. Food is always of the finest quality and really well priced for the excellent standard you receive. Service again... More

The restaurant itself is quite small and rustic in appearance but full of charm and ambience (once it heated up and started getting a bit busier). The service was friendly and not too in your face. The food... More

We went for dinner about 10 days ago when we were in the area. We were the first to arrive at just after 6.00 pm, but the restaurant was warm and welcoming as was our waitress although with humble apologies to her, we have forgotten her name. My wife and I had the Early Evening Fixed Menu. There was sufficient... More

Second visit, food delicious - fresh and full of flavour. Party of two kids and three adults. Staff - very chilled and friendly. My kind of place. Would recommend to anyone looking for good vegetarian food in West Didsbury.

Bistro West 156 restaurant is a shining star in the thriving restaurant scene on Burton Road in Manchester���s West Didsbury, a quirky corner that���s a foodie heaven not all that far from where the M60 and the M56 part company. Bistro West 156���s pocket-friendly traditional cooking cuts out all the malarkey to deliver modern British cuisine, the real food that loyal fans adore. The rustic dining room with its granite topped tables, blackboard specials and changing local art displays sets a relaxed tone for easy lunches and suppers. While the food may be fine dining level, the ambience is bistro informal from terrific breakfasts right through to the last sip of dessert wine. Everything is homemade, and customer favourites include superbly cooked comfort classics like fish pie, chicken Kiev and Bistro West 156���s very own melting chocolate pudding. You will succumb. The warm welcome and tables outside entice you to linger.
