I don't see nothing special in this place. Don't like so much the entrance doesn't look nice, seems small but probably there was only one part open, so I don't know how is it opening everything. Cocktail so and so. Stuff is nice. Decoration in Sud African style really poor!!

A friend and I walked into Walrus and stumbled upon Tusk as the two are linked together on the inside. I was delighted at our find. No only does the bar have a great happy hour but the bar man who was working that night was the most informative bar worker I had met in a long time. You could... More

Tried Tusk for the first time for cocktails with friends and was pleasantly surprised. The cocktail menu is a bit different from the standard fare which we liked; it's good to have a bit of variation. Service was good. Only thing we didn't like was how loud the music was - we were in there about 5pm for pre-show /... More

Rip off - don't bother £7.50 umbongos without a trickle of captain Morgan tasted like a glass of fruit juice - even at 241 rubbish - asked for them to be changed and the second were as bad - good music crap service and crap cocktails and poor service

Management response:

Hi Cathy, Thanks for your review, though I am confused with your comments. Our Umbongo cocktail contains Captain Morgan, passion fruit and apricot liqueur along with five other ingredients/ flavours. Our aim is not to achieve something overpowered with rum, rather to mimic the flavour of the classic fruit juice drink Um Bongo, which if you try is pretty much... More

Went on a wednesday night I think it was because they had all advertisements online saying it was certain drinks for £3.. we ordered these drinks (2) and the price was £12!! Thinking we may have got it wrong we payed it and went to sit down. When we sat down right next to our table was a poster saying... More

Went for a quick meal before heading the cinema, ordered and it came fairly quickly but were very shocked at how small the portions were. The burgers are tiny and my partner and I were left leaving hungry still. However, the place is very nice, and the man behind the bar was helpful when the card machine wasn't working and... More

The staff here were extremely friendly, the cocktails well done and imaginative, and the food of exceptional quality. It is not fancy and the menu selections are limited and changing, but they served me one of the best burgers I have ever eaten!

New to Manchester, I saw this place on a visit Manchester website. Not disappointed! Food was reasonably priced and fairly swift, tasty too! Meatball pizza was delicious. The decor of this place was nice, dim lighting, candles and copper covered tables. It works! The best part of this bar was the cocktails. The guy behind the bar was a wizard,... More
