Great food, great service, a great experience – that’s what we all look for in a restaurant, right? Well, that’s what you can expect when you go to Tattu.
Tattu is a restaurant and bar that is advertised as offering a culinary and experimental Asian experience unlike any other in the city. I love Asian food and I love a great dining atmosphere, so Tattu has always been high up in my list of places to try. But here’s my first tip when you want to go… make sure you book waaaay in advance, it’s always full up. But there’s a good reason why.
As you enter through the glass doors, the reception desk is there and staff are waiting to serve you. We were early for our table, so we went to the bar to grab a drink.
The bar itself is beautifull. You’ve got small round tables, luxurious booths, and even massive dining tables which larger groups dine at. The interior is beautiful too… the windows are covered with big, red roses. There’s also pictures and paintings on the wall, that are quite seductive actually.
The drinks menu is really nice too, and is themed around Asia and offers drinks from there too. My boyfriend Callum chose an Asian beer called Asahi and I went for a cocktail called Origami, which cutely came with a little paper bird on the side.
When our table was ready we went upstairs and was seated to our table. There, we first saw the big, cherry blossom tree that is so famous. Unfortunately, we were seated quite far away from it, but I overheard two couples ask to be seated under it so that’s one of Tattu’s main attractions.
Although in April, Tattu was still serving their Winter menu. And wow, what a selection of food. All the dishes are designed to share, we were told so the idea is you can pick a set menu and get a tapas still meal, or just order your own.
For starters, we shared some duck spring rolls which came will plum sauce. Oh my god, they were so delicious. The roll was crispy and the duck inside was moist, and the plum sauce complimented the dish so well.
For main I had the ribs, with a side of egg fried rice. I love the taste of ribs, but I hate the mess they make, especially at a nice restaurant. But as soon as I picked these up, the meat just fell off the bone. And the egg fried rice was so complimentary to the ribs and the BBQ-esque sauce it came with. Callum had the monk-fish with jasmine rice on the side, and said it was one of the best fish dishes he has ever had! Just writing about it makes me want to go back.
In terms of the price, Tattu isn’t the cheapest restaurant in town, but in my opinion, it’s one of the best I’ve been in Manchester. You truly get what you pay for, and the service is really, really good. I may be bias because Asian is my favourite type of food, but I believe anyone would enjoy Tattu is they went.
Have you tried Tattu? If so, what did you get and did you enjoy it? Let me know in the comments!
