Great food, at reasonable prices. Perhaps a bit noisy at times - a very small place, so not good for young kids.

Had a great dinner here two days ago. Steak dish was superb! Would have given a top rating but for the fact we were given the wrong menu at first. Music was in the background but not too loud, so was scarcely noticeable. Warmly recommend...More

Probably the nicest small restaurant in the area .Attentive and friendly staff. Plentyof choices and all well presented. It does get warm from the kitchen so don't wrap up! Daily specials are to be recommended. Pre book or you might be disappointed.

I would like to book a table please on Friday 19th February. Can you reserve a table from 6pm for four people? We are celebrating my birthday, so would like a special table in a corner with a nice view out of the window. Do you do any special surprises for birthdays?

Bistro West 156 restaurant is a shining star in the thriving restaurant scene on Burton Road in Manchester���s West Didsbury, a quirky corner that���s a foodie heaven not all that far from where the M60 and the M56 part company. Bistro West 156���s pocket-friendly traditional cooking cuts out all the malarkey to deliver modern British cuisine, the real food that loyal fans adore. The rustic dining room with its granite topped tables, blackboard specials and changing local art displays sets a relaxed tone for easy lunches and suppers. While the food may be fine dining level, the ambience is bistro informal from terrific breakfasts right through to the last sip of dessert wine. Everything is homemade, and customer favourites include superbly cooked comfort classics like fish pie, chicken Kiev and Bistro West 156���s very own melting chocolate pudding. You will succumb. The warm welcome and tables outside entice you to linger.
