Crazy Pedro's Pizza Parlour

After cheap places to eat near Deansgate, Manchester? Grab a slice of the action as Crazy Pedro's serves up lip-smacking pizza slathered in unusual toppings, lashings of tequila and the frostiest frozen margaritas in town, with happy hours from 5 'til 10pm every day except Saturday. If you're after a city centre venue that's a little less serious and a lot more fun, this is it.

El Gato Negro

With chef Simon Shaw at the helm of its menu, it's no wonder that El Gato Negro has been recognised in the Michelin Guide. Located on King Street, the Spanish restaurant brings you tapas, wines and sherries, boasting the choice of a vibrant indoor space or relaxing outdoor terrace. 


Tampopo is home to some seriously stunning Asian dishes, from Singaporean Vermicelli noodles to katsu curry or pad Thai. And if you're in need of Deansgate restaurants with halal options, they've got plenty of those as well, alongside veggie and vegan treats.

Federal, Deansgate

Serving up Antipodean fare from day to night, Federal's Deansgate venue is the second site of the popular brunch restaurant. Expect all sorts of eggs through the day, with banana bread, French toast and pineapple porridge to satisfy your sweet breakfast cravings.

Almost Famous

In the mood for an indulgent cheat day feast? Get your fix with some of the city's best burgers at Almost Famous. Here, you'll find everything from loaded buns to chilli dogs and jam jar cocktails. If that's not enough, there's live sports screenings in the bar upstairs.


One of the most popular places for Polish food, Platzki is a chilled out space dedicated to the humble potato pancake. You won't be able to plan ahead with the menu, as dishes change twice a week, focusing on a fine dining experience come the weekend. Twoje zdrowie.
