    What can I say, it was a terrible meal experience. It was quiet but the food took absolutely ages, not all the food arrived, items were missed off the order and the food that did arrive was cold and dry. I’ve had better food in macdonalds. To be fair to the manager she took everything off the bill but the evening kind of ruined my sons birthday evening out with his friends. I wouldn’t recommend going here. They need to prioritise restaurant orders over takeaway ones.

    It's halal so no bacon or pulled pork on the menu. If I had known I wouldn't have booked the Withington one... apparently the Manchester one is not halal so we will go there next time

    Food was brilliant, but the service needs work. Staff are few and far between, good taking your orders but then leave you to it. Had to chase a few times for the bill and then had to chase to actually pay, and then weren’t able to tell us how much we owed and had us work it out. It all just seemed a bit slap dash, which I suppose is understandable to a certain extent as they will all be students due to the location. But worth training them up a little better to make the experience better, as we ended on a bit of a naff note. Northern quarter staff were miles better, so would recommend going there rather than withington. Food was really good though, as always!

    Food tasted really good. Unfortunately the portions were too small. It’s nothing like the instagram pictures when. We were expecting filling burgers but unfortunately they were below average in size but cost £14 each! This does not include fries and a drink. You would expect a fairly sized burger, let alone a small one.

    Quite slow service and we ordered the bill before anyone even came to take our plates, however due to the 50% offer on food at present they were very busy. Very cold - we all ate in our coats but food was great

    Have been going to Almost Famous now for years. This visit was a bit disappointing the restaurant was freezing cold, draft blowing in from a big old window we were sat next to. I opened the menu to see that all my old favourites had gone and then I noticed every single pork product had been replaced…. No bacon on burgers… Turkey bacon No pepperoni… Turkey pepperoni No pulled pork… pulled beef. It’s not the same thing, not the same texture and not as flavoursome. A wholesale menu change to cater for a certain religion. Bring back the pork

    Thoroughly enjoyed. I am vegetarian and was slightly disappointed that only the veggie chicken option was available and not the beef, but the loaded fries made up for it. They were great and the restaurant was nice with a good atmosphere. The half price burgers in Jan deal is fab too!

    Great food, with interesting additions for Christmas Great value. burgers are huge. The kids meals in particular are great value and ours love them. Great vegan options plus it's all Halal too. House lager is cheap. £4 a pint. People could be in there drinking not just eating the great food. Service is always top drawer. Great staff It's an incredible building and they've done a great job with the decor Well worth a visit

    The service was exceptional, the music was very loud when we arrived and given that 2 of the members of our party wear hearing aids its was difficult to have a conversation. The staff were extremely accommodating when we asked if they could turn the music down and came back to check we were more comfortable with the volume. The food was amazing as always we will definitely be back

    Food tasty as always but I feel they could have done more with the building. Odd decor, strange ambience and awfully uncomfortable chairs. Dining was all at one end (the remainder of the space empty) and we were placed next to a 6 year olds party table. I have children who were with us but this was ‘loud’. Service was slow. Typical of most restaurants these days where deliveries have overtaken in-house dining. Withington has some great independent and quirky eateries and this was an exciting addition but I won’t be returning in a hurry.

    We chose to meet here with friends because they had vegan options. The service was absolutely awful. The waiting staff were pretty quick to take our order and we had our drinks with us in minutes. After that, though, we waited an hour for our food and it really wasn't busy. The venue itself is absolute sensory overload, which one of our group really struggled with. The music was loud, the lighting was distracting and we couldn't really spend any time talking to each other. The food was nothing spectacular, and we were really happy the burgers were on a half price offer. The vegan burgers were just quorn frozen burgers, and there was no adjustment on price for the burgers that were half the size of the meat ones. Definitely will not be going back.

    Excellent burgers, and my milkshake was good, but the rose wine my date ordered was medicinal tasting, and I drinkable. I was hoping to get her drink too. Lols. Probably wouldn’t go back. Service was ok.
