Arrived at restaurant for a booked table, couldn't get to the reception desk for the hordes of people waiting for their takeaways, no acknowledgement of our arrival, no apology that table wasn't ready, everybody moving around frantically, nowhere to sit and wait for table, surly attitude - shocking customer service. Expressed my concerns and disappointment in an e mail -... More

Whenever we eat here we always enjoy it. Tasty food and helpful service. Not always that busy if eating early evening but that means the service is even more attentive. Varied menu at a reasonable price.

Dined on an evening as part of a group of 9. We shared starters and main courses. The service was excellent - friendly and fast. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice and spacious. Every course I tasted was fantastic. The main that I chose was my favourite - Monk fish / scallops and King prawns in ok sauce.... More

We go to Manzen often and the food is generally good. But on 24 December we had a shocking takeaway. If you cant produce a good Thai curry then please take it off the menu. The Green Chicken Curry was so bland and the sauce had the consistency of water... to give one example. Even taking into account it was... More

I visited this place with my office team for Christmas dinner. The place is slightly off the main road but close to Knutsford Bus Stop and train station. I am a vegetarian and the restaurant guys were kind enough to arrange for a vegan banquet for me. The sweet corn soup was good, nothing special about it. Vegetable Spring Roll,... More

Visited with colleagues after work on a Monday evening. The food was excellent. I'd recommend the sharing starters. The only down fall was that many people seemed to be serving our table at once whilst the place was quiet earlier in the evening - it was a little over whelming but you could see that their intentions were good. I... More

Where the other negative reviews come from I have no idea. Service was perfectly attentive at just the right level - the meal was wonderfully tasty - highly recommended.
