We dined here on a Tuesday evening and had the mid-week 3 course meal for £18. The food was outstanding quality and the very reasonable price was merely a bonus point. The chocolate cherry trio dessert was just the icing on an already delicious cake.

Food- huge and delicious Coffee- again brilliant Service- great but only one waitress so it could be slow if very busy. Give it a try if you want a quick and delicious meal

It had been a few years since I'd last eaten at Bistro 156 prior to this weeks lunch but I will no longer be leaving it so long to return. Small restaurant with friendly, attentive service and delicious freshly prepared food.

Booked at the last minute on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The food was outstanding for the price and very well presented. Portion sizes are substantial so if you have a modest appetite then I would suggest sharing a starter or dessert. Will certainly...More

Our family picked up on this restaurant from TA reviews as it was close to our digs during a visit to relatives. We visited mid week and had the 3 courses for £21 offer which is fantastic value. The menu is short, which is a...More

Lovely venue. Small venue which led to a wonderfully personal friendly atmosphere. Service was spot on, combined with a great menu. Great selection, but nice small menu which I prefer. Well cooked, and beautifully thought out food.

We opted for Bistro West on the back of both good TA reviews and personal recommendation, thankfully both were correct. The restaurant is fairly small, somewhat cosy you may call it. i cannot put my finger on it but it lacked a certain sparkle lets...More

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.
