I couldn't fault the dishes that we ordered, they were tasty and plentiful. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. I found the staff to be pleasant too. Well worth a visit

Located on the edge of Manchester's China Town, Red Chilli was one of the first Chinese restaurants I visited when I moved to Manchester many years ago. It's always been my brother's favourite Cantonese eatery but I felt it lost its 'mojo' a few years...More
