Thaikhun Street Buffet Trafford

A vibrant, lantern-lit haven that accommodates up to 150 diners, Thaikhun Street Food blends tradition with a touch of industrial chic. Enjoy tucking into bottomless Thai delicacies starting at £16.95 - you'll get to try everything from classic dishes like massaman curry to Thaikhun specials like crispy duck pad gaprao. You might just have to come back for round two.

Noi Quattro

Head to the Northern Quarter where this chilled out pizzeria has got you covered for some authentic Neapolitan eats six days a week. From the classic Margherita to the sausage and broccoli-laden Vesuvio and plenty of vegan options, they're one of the top spots in the city to get your slice on.

Comptoir Libanais

Located in the heart of Spinningfields, Comptoir Libanais is the go-to for impressive Lebanese cooking. The first outpost in the city, this Middle Eastern restaurant is bringing you the likes of flatbreads, mezze and burgers finished off with baklawa and mango cheesecake.
