The Ivy, West Street’s Head Chef, Gary Lee, has held a passion for Asian cuisine for some time, adding a series of pan-Asian dishes to The Ivy’s à la carte menu in 2015.

In Manchester, The Ivy Spinningfields Senior Head Chef, Steve Scoullar, also enjoys working with Asian ingredients, produce and flavours following extensive travels across the continent. From trips to Cambodia and Vietnam, to sampling produce at Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, Steve has developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this style of cooking.

With this in mind, The Ivy Spinningfields created the perfect opportunity for The Ivy Collection to introduce a brand-new dining concept on one of its four floors – Ivy Asia. Coming alive across the restaurant’s entire second floor, Ivy Asia offers a number of Asian-inspired cocktails and dishes for guests to enjoy, including Wagyu beef with truffle sauce, salmon fillet teriyaki, and avocado, crispy tofu, lime and ginger dressing.

We attended Ivy Asia in Spinningfields on Tuesday 20th August to celebrate our wedding anniversary - which I had advised the restaurant of and asked for a nice table due to the occasion. We arrived only to be crammed right by the door in the middle of two other tables - being 8 months pregnant it was not the easiest seat to get into or to be comfortable in and felt less than special for our anniversary. When i asked if a better table was available I was advised not, but then one of the couples next to us complained and were moved to a more suitable table much to my frustration.
We were then left 15 mins with no introduction or offer of refreshment only to wait a further 10 mins to actually receive the drinks we finally managed to order; on a Tuesday evening i was not expecting such a delayed service.
Thankfully the food was excellent which compensated in some way for the poor service and overall customer experience. Overall a disappointing experience.

We were seated half an hour after our booking time. They asked if we would like a complimentary drink for the wait then charged us for it on our bill. The food was lovely but very small portions for the price and left feeling hungry. We will.not be returning.

Attended for a wedding anniversary,
The design and presentation of the room
was very opulent yet welcoming.

The waiter was friendly, had a constant smile
and was very approachable.

A nice surprise was also provided with a mini dessert to celebrate the evening.

First class service.

Chris and Jane.

The food was delicious, service friendly, helpful and professional and I loved the decor. However the noise level was excessive and I wouldn’t recommend unless you are looking for a nightclub with food. Don’t bother if you want to talk to your friends!

The food was once again, fantastic, was a little busier than when I’ve been before because it was a Saturday, however that didn’t reflect on the staff or service as our food came fast and the staff still stayed very attentive to us.

Lovely waitress. Food was tasty. portions were small. The duck salad literally had a few scrapings of duck on it. Seemed to be full of chavs. Too pretentious for us. We like the brasserie downstairs a lot more

We have dined a few times at the Asia restaurant. The service and food was very good. Only disappointment was service charge of £35 added to the bill even there was only 5 of us.

Food was amazing and the service was spot on. The only bad thing I could say is the table we were sat at. It was in the very far corner of the restaurant at the end of the bar so felt a bit pushed out.

We were advised that the teriyaki salmon would be served pink. When it arrived, it came cooked through. Despite us mentioning this to the waiter, who intern confirmed that her would mention it to the chef, there was no adjustment made to the bill. This was disappointing.
In addition, there were several items on the bill which had not been ordered by us. Whilst these were subsequently deducted, it was disappointing that a restaurant allegedly of this calibre, made such basic errors.

Food & service was excellent - value for money too - the only thing we didn't really like was the seating - the two people on the chairs were knocked a few times by people at the bar and people passing but overall was a brilliant experience and would def go back again..

The food is amazing. The service is to the highest standards. The place is beautiful an toilets are excellent.

On the balcony people are allowed to smoke. We was sat next to approx 15 people smoking cigars. This was not too pleasant to a non smoker and felt like I was smoking myself.

The tables are quite close together so it is not very intimate or romantic.

Otherwise great experience

Ate in the Asia, superb evening from start to finish. Entertaining some friends visiting from Bermuda, they couldn't get over how good the whole evening was. Rob and the rest of the staff looked after us really well, nothing was too much trouble. The choice of food was excellent and you know you've had a good night when the drinks bill is more than the food. Our friends have insisted we bring them again on their next visit. Can't wait.

A fantastic venue in the heart of Manchester. Not my first time but went with some girlfriends who adored it. The food and drink is to a very high standard and the champagne went down a treat. A couple of minor service delays but nothing that ruined the night.
A very classy, elegant place from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Would recommend! 5*
