We booked a large table as a group of friends and as 3 of us had babies we booked Giraffe because it said on the website it was ideal for people with prams as there was lots of space for them. Firstly, it took a while for us to find the restaurant - on the website it said it was... More

We came one night for some dinner and both really enjoyed our food. Plenty of variety on the menu and all reasonably priced. The service was great too. We would definitely recommend over some of the other places in the Trafford Centre.

A nice meal with the family good service, i have been a few times but noticed that the size of my burger had shrunk considerable of the past couple of visits. Still the food is of good quality. I would reccomend most things off the menu maybe stay away from the burgers if you want something to satisfy. The others... More

Food was good and staff are very helpful. Katsu curry was fabulous. 10% service charge which was automatically added to the bill which i found cheeky. I always leave a tip anyway but do it out of my own choice.

Went for a meal this evening. Two bowls of food. Childs menu meal. Olives and bread for starters and a couple of drinks. Nothing extravagent. Bill comes... 48 quid. Say what....

This was the first time we had been to Giraffe, as we wanted to try something new. We were both disappointed. The good bits - the staff were lovely, and the starter was quite good. The main course was a burger, and whilst it was nice, it was nothing special. The chocolate cookie sweet was more of a chocolate bun,... More

Looked round at all the restaurants in the centre and decided on this one based on the vegetarian options and children's menu. The falafel burger was lovely. My son throughly enjoyed his salmon and wedges. He was very impressed with his cup of milk that had a giraffe hanging from the straw! I was impressed they added a kid. The... More

Delicious food, great staff even though it was busy! I would recommend their Spicy Rice Bowl and their Ice Teas!

The staff are friendly, responsive and efficient. The menu is good with good options for veggies. The food is quite tasty and served quickly. I cant recommend the coffee though but you're not going to go there for the coffee so not a big deal.

Thank Jamie J
