Don't be put off by the fast food shop below, go through a glass door and ascend the spiral staircase. Upstairs is a small simple restaurant, with a bunch of relaxed eithiopian folks sitting around and chatting. One will get up and offer you a...More

First time I've had Ethiopian food. Café was easy to miss as is on first floor. Chicken doro wat was wonderfully spicy and came with the classic injera sourdough flatbread with its characteristic spongy texture. Recommended!

Definitely one to thank T.A for. From the street you'd avoid every day of the week: looks like a typical take away establishment. Go in though and upstairs is a cracking spot. Very eclectic, so if you want haute cuisine or fine dining go elsewhere....More

This was our best experience during 3 recent days staying in Manchester and eating and drinking in lots of places. You really have to search for it - make sure you have the street number and then head up the spiral staircase leading out of...More
