I think there must be a theme with Tampopo as I had a similar experience at the corn exchange branch... poor service. The waiters just forget about you, you have to wave them down if you need anything. The food was better at the corn exchange branch as even though i ordered the same dish at the Trafford centre branch... More

Hi Harriet Thank you for taking the time to review us here at Tampopo Trafford Centre. Thank you also for bringing your two issues to our attention for us to address.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here. Second table in after Saturday opening, we selected a outside table as we like to people watch & have a good old nosey whilst we eat. The dumplings & pork belly starters were amazing. Prawn crackers were also good & the chilli dipping sauce was plentiful. Both mains, one noodle dish & one rice... More

We visited on a Saturday evening and the place was relatively busy. We were informed that there was a 30 minute wait for food, which was fine. We ordered drinks, starters and mains. The drinks and starters came quickly, and then there was a 30 minute wait for the mains.. which again was fine as we had already been pre-warned.... More

I visited Tampopo at the Trafford Centre early on a Saturday evening. We didn't book and there was only a small wait for a table despite the restaurant being busy. We were passed a menu whilst we were in the queue so could have a look at what we wanted ahead of time. When we were shown to our seat,... More

Despite repeatedly asking for no coriander my wife's main came back three times loaded with the stuff. Beef curry was tasty, but a little small I felt. Food is ok, but the ability to take and deliver a basic order means that I wont be rushing back.

First visit to Tampopo, but a massive fan of eastern Asian cooking. so I had a great expectation of what was on the menu. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and service was very fast. The seating area is set out so that you could be sat next to strangers, however this is part of the experience of Asian... More

We had a wonderful meal here for my sons 6th birthday. He enjoyed using the child friendly chopsticks. The staff noticed his birthday badge and brought him a complimentary ice cream with a candle in. He was thrilled. The kids menu is great, providing a great introduction to eastern food for those that haven't tried it before. Mine and my... More

Haven't been here for a while. We used to frequent a lot but recipes changed and it put us off. Then the menu changed and this put us off more! However I have struggled to find anywhere that produces dishes to the same delicious spiciness. So whilst in the area decided to give the place another go. We were pleased... More

Description
With 180 seats, it’s a firm favourite of the Trafford Centre. Our outside seating within the Orient’s upper food hall eats gives you chance to gaze on the busy shoppers; or get away from it all and dine inside watching our chefs work away. Great for refuelling during shopping trips, family teas or cinema eats.
