Stan Chow and Tattu join charity line up to celebrate Manchester’s amazing East and Southeast Asian restaurants

Hello Oriental are hosting a fundraising banquet to celebrate some of the amazing East Asian and Southeast Asian food producers in Manchester

And wow, we are spoiled for choice for amazing food.

The dinner is raising funds for Eat Well MCR – the non-profit that provides chef made meals to people in need in Manchester.

Iconic Manchester Artist Stanley Chow is joining the line up, along with Tattu, the amazing Luxury Chinese restaurant.

Tattu – Manchester

Attendees can expect a delicious blend of sushi and sashimi, some ‘next-level’ dim sum, fresh zingy salads, umani-rich ramen, fiery aromatic curry and platters of fragrant rice.

And lots, lots more, including a rich selection of deserts.

Tickets are just £65 each, including a welcome cocktail.

Originally due to be held in September, the death of HRH Queen Elizabeth meant the date was pushed back to November 30th, which has provided an opportunity to update the line up.

Ricky Yip, co-owner of Hello Oriental said of the event: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the food from across this region and showcase a small slice of what’s on offer in Manchester.”

Here’s the full line up:

Neon Tiger – A new urban drinking space serving rural Thai barbecue in the city.

Hello Oriental – Hosts Hello Oriental offer uncensored authentic East Asian street food across three storeys.

Tattu – Fusing traditional flavours, modern methods & exquisite presentation producing contemporary Chinese food.
