Sweet Mandarin

19 Copperas Street, MANCHESTER, M4 1HS

1 rosettes

The Tse sisters, who run what has become one of the most popular Chinese restaurants for miles around, were awarded MBEs for their services to food in the 2014 New Year Honours list - quite a journey from when it first opened in 1950. It's a relaxed and comfortable glass-fronted venue, where, against a backdrop of red screens and lanterns, a mix of traditional and less familiar Chinese dishes is offered. Expect wonton soup, salt and chilli squid, and well-rendered main dishes like Emperor red chicken curry, or chillified Hunanese volcano beef. Veggie options include Mabel's claypot of tofu and Chinese mushrooms.
