SquareMeal Review of Grand Pacific Manchester

Silver Award

The latest enterprise from the Living Ventures group is a colonial-style bar and restaurant in the renowned Grade II-listed Manchester Reform Club building, which opened in 1871. The 120-cover dining room offers an all-day menu while the Long Bar, inspired by Raffles Hotel in Singapore, provides bespoke cocktails until late. The impressive space blends tropical influences with Old-World grandeur, making a fitting setting for high tea, the classic Sunday lunch or the à la carte menu. We enjoyed an elegantly presented starter of chicken and spring onion gyoza with soy, sweet potato and miso, followed by a generously portioned tempura Szechuan sea bass featuring tender fillets within perfectly crisp, lightly spiced batter. A notable side of vivid green asparagus spears was drizzled with rich yuzu hollandaise. To finish, sherry trifle was enlivened by fragrant hibiscus, tangy lemon curd crème fraîche and raspberry sherbet. The indulgent yet relaxed vibe here is another draw, well-suited to business or pleasure dining. A welcome addition to the city centre.

Grand Pacific, Manchester is an Asian-inspired restaurant serving a menu of world-wide dishes from their grand grade II listed building on King Street. Grand Pacific is open for lunch, dinner and high tea. There is also a separate Sunday lunch menu.

There is a long and striking bar area, lined with seating, plus a restaurant area. It has an industrial look with large windows to one side, low hanging lanterns and feature lighting. It has been thoughtfully decorated and restored throughout with plenty of character and style.

If you’re visiting Grand Pacific for dinner perhaps you might kick things off with the glazed chicken skewers or the salt baked beetroot tian. When it comes to main courses you will find an Asian-spiced duck cottage pie served with pork crackling and home-pickled onion. There is also a spiced roast cauliflower dish which is cooked with chili, garlic and cumin.

Lighter dishes include a classic Caesar salad served with oak smoked bacon, and a spiced Nashi pear and walnut salad served with miso and lime dressing.

Sides include plenty of tempting options such as gunpowder potatoes, thick cut chips and mirin-infused sticky rice.

Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the dessert menu, with dishes such as coconut panna cotta, pineapple tarte tatin, and a yuzu crème brulee.

The drinks menu is varse, with a good selection of beers and wines. You will also find cocktails on the menu, take a look at the pomegranate mojito, or the Grand Pacific gin and tonic served with aperol, rosewater and lychee.

If you’re visiting Grand Pacific for high tea you will find both a savoury and sweet selection, plus the option to choose a vegetarian high tea. There is a loose leaf tea range, or the option to choose a sparkling wine or cocktail.

But chaotic as Christmas. Caesar salad was good, sharer starter average. We got cold chips and replacement didn't come until we'd basically finished. Service decent.
