There was a queue out of the door most of the night with people coming to pick up take aways so it felt like you were eating in a zoo but the food was really nice.

However, they'd abandoned the "no bookings unless there's more than 6 of you policy" for the evening and had pretty much booked the place out. For the hour or so we were there, they must have turned away about 15 couples who assumed normal rules applied and expected to eat - doh!

Correct. Went tut Clog last neet and were towd t'same.

Tables booked up but managed to get one because we were early and promised to sod off by 7.30

Haven't you heard, Gord?

They've knocked 2.5% of VAT! Fill your boots!

Suddenly all those things you never thought you could afford cost a very nominal amount less! Britain's surely going consumer crazy!?!

Sorry - OT - Couldn't help myself!

I quite like going to Wetherspoons nowadays!

Grill club on a Tuesday, Curry club on a Thursday. Cheap and cheerful!

Went to Kebabish in Whalley Range, last time I went 18 months ago I walked out as the standard of food was rubbish, it is now under new management and have to say that the food was excellent. The mix grill was great and the Chicken Karahi was as good as I have had.

That was good when it first opened but it looked awfully run down last time I went past Kamy. What went wrong?

I think that the people who were running it started off well but then the food quality dropped and fewer people went so they let the place run down. Like I said I went about 18 months ago and the food was so bad that I walked out. New people bought the restaurant about 6 months ago and heard some good reports so went to check it out with a couple of friends over the weekend and was pleasently surprised with the quality of the food.

El Rincon (Spanish) is very good tucked away behind Deansgate and Quay Street. Its address is Deansgate but it is approached from behind via Artillery Street. Authentic, good atmosphere and excellent food. Hmmm, can feel a booking coming on......

First chance to get out for a while this weekend. Went here a few years ago, and returned this Saturday lunch time, the El Rincon De Rafa off Deansgate in Manchester. Subterranean and cosy, staffed by Spaniards, offering excellent seafood an a wide range of Tapas too. Fresh, quick, clean and courteous, would recommend to all for either a lunch time pit stop out shopping(as we did) , or for a proper meal in the evening.

Went to El Rincon de Rafa tonight before going to the MEN, have to say it's a great recommendation so thanks both!

Time was short, but in 40 minutes we ate really well, and 7 tapas dishes washed down with 3 beers was well under 40 quid. Loved the footy memorabilia on the walls as well including the signed Maradona shirt (the owner used to play for Stockport it seems).

We'll be returning for a more leisurely visit in the very near future.

See above post.

Back to it's best, as it should be at £120 for 2 people although that did include a little :rolleyes: wine.

The only down side was the waitress telling me that it is David Cameron's favourite Manchester eating place.

And the place was packed out, which is a suprise for a Tuesday night.

You can keep control of the bill at Yang Sing by asking them to choose the dishes for you - you just give them a per person budget, tell them what you like and don't like and leave it to them. You will get stuff you would not have tried otherwise - we had razor clams last time which were amazing.

Second vote for The Clog, spot on for those needs

thanks but neither are in Blackburn or Preston are they? And would we be able to walk in without a booking at 9pm on a Friday evening?

Don't want to be picky but I have Pleasington down as in between Blackburn and Preston! :D

As for 9.00pm on a Friday, I think you'd have to book The Clog at that time or be prepared to wait perhaps 30-40 minutes. Can't suggest anywhere else as we rarely eat Chinese and I don't know where to get fish and chips other than a chippy.

I suppose you might try the Red Cat at Wheelton. Portions are small and it's pricey. The food is very good but I'm never sure if I enjoyed myself. Desperatley pretenious restaurant.

Sorry, I hadn't realised where it was. Anyway not to be picky, it seems to be nearer Billinge than Pleasington...

Grub's OK though.
