Great food as usual but spoiledGreat food as usual but spoiled by poor service due to the lack of staff. This is my first negative experience having dined at Vermillion for several years.05/05/2013 00:00:00An experience to rememberWanted to try something new with friends so we decided to check out vermillion.
On arrival we was greated at the door once we had walked on the red carpet.
We were taken to the top floor which was the spectacular cinnabar! The staff were all friendly and professional.
The drinks were amazing. After this we were take. Downstairs to the restaurant floor where we were given ample time to go through the menu deciding what we would like to order. We decided on a Thai set meal. It was near to perfection.
However having said that we were not overly impressed with the desert which was ice cream and banana cake/bread.04/05/2013 00:00:00Vermillion experienceWe celebrated my daughter birthday and it turned out to be a lovely evening. We had the wine and dine menu. It was gorgeous. The service was goodand the price was reasonable. Overall we couldn't have wished for a nicer evening.28/04/2013 00:00:00dining outA superb experience, lovely atmosphere and ambience. my wife and i really enjoyed it and would definately recommend here for food and drinks.27/04/2013 00:00:00Ate from the Indian Food FestivalAte from the Indian Food Festival menu. Good food, though not great sized portions. Had the chicken karahi & lamb mumbai. Very tasty, though having had the chicken handi and chicken pasanda before, these two dishes weren't quite as tasty. Very nice ambiance on a Friday evening.26/04/2013 00:00:00Very specialWhat a beautiful restaurant, great service, staff very attentive. Will definitely see us again the whole family had a wonderful time. Thank you23/04/2013 00:00:00ExcellentExcellent food and service. Great decor and ambience would recommend for a special occasion.13/04/2013 00:00:00Great food, great venue let drinks!From the minute we stepped inside we were blown away by the service and venue at this great establishment. Food was great. Table service was great. All the nice touches such as the staff taking you to and from the bar all build part of this great story of Vermillion. Only complaint I had, small however quite an impact. We ordered some cocktails whilst in the bar area as well as some beers (the venue was very quiet at this point as was only 6.30) our beers came straight away and we were told cocktails take a little longer. Apparently 30 minutes longer! We had finished beers, moved to table and finished starter before they came! We are going again though. Everybody can make a mistake!13/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding service attentionOutstanding service attention to detail
The famous prawn starter was worth the wait
14 for dinner
A wonderful experience12/04/2013 00:00:00Birthday Meal4 of us dined at this restaurant for my Birthday. From arriving at the restaurant to leaving the service was first class. Staff very attentive and professional. Loved the whole ambience of the place, really classy and sophisticated. Food was excellent. Couldn't fault anything. The whole evening was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be returning!!06/04/2013 00:00:00Wow factor!!On initial panic that the satnav had gone completely berserk and sent us to an industrial estate in manchester we were over the moon to find it and walked down the red carpet where we were greeted with two lovely men who then escorted us i a lift up to wat I can only describe as a truly opulent mysterious dream world!! Gorgeous surroundings and choice of expensive and not so unaffordable meal options so fit both budgets, the food and atmosphere were amazing and staff very friendly was a perfect night to surprise my husband with for his birthday meal. Would Deffo recommend to anyone thanks so much for a great nite05/04/2013 00:00:00Saturday NightBooked this for my mums birthday after hearing good things from a friend... On the drive to the restaurant I was worried because the area is pretty horrible although the restaurant was incredible! On our arrival the hosts were fantastic and I left a cake with them to bring out for my mum after our meal. The whole experience was fantastic an my mum had a ball! The staff could have been a little quicker though overall I'd definitely go back! So glad we tried this restaurant - reminded us of Tao in NYC which is definitely a big complement!05/04/2013 00:00:00ExcellentExcellent service, food, wine, atmosphere and overall experience. Is expensive but you get what you pay for and the quality here is very high02/04/2013 00:00:00Great dining experienceFrom the moment we arrived the staff were very welcoming and courteous.The venue is fantastic, very impressive decor with 'pods' in one of the bars for groups of friends or couples to lounge on whilst having a drink. We were a group booking of 10 so we had to choose one of the set menus. The food was excellent and good value with a service to match. Will definitely dine here again. This is the place to go to impress someone!30/03/2013 00:00:00Accomadating dining experienceGreat staff - got back in touch with me about arrangements for a friends birthday. Helpful accomadating and polite. Fantastic ambience great decor food was delightful. Impressed all the guests. Could not be flawed at all spot on service with a smile. Great set menu not normally my desired option but great selection of good choices at a entirely reasonable price . I keep on coming back - fantastic food x28/03/2013 00:00:00Not bad Not bad!After months of hearing from others, I finally tried Vermillion with friends. Had afternoon brunch and man it was good. Indeed, one of the best Thai Restaurants in Manchester. Above all, brunch for £13 quid is not a bad deal considering decor and the quality of stuff you get.
Must try: Lamb Karahi in main course and Coconut Custard in dessert.
Way out of this world man!!!24/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday mealThe staff were very attentive from us entering the restaurant, just the right amount of interaction, without you feeling like they were pestering you. There wasn't a long wait for food, which was absolutely delicious, wonderful food, fabulous atmosphere and surroundings.23/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday Meal at VermilionAs it was my wife's birthday, I wanted to try somewhere different and slightly out of the way. We turned up to Vermilion and it was great to see a restaurant that had plenty of car parking outside and secure parking at that.
On arriving we were greeted in the entrance lobby before being escorted into the lift and taken to the restaurant floor. The doors opened and it looked great. Certainly looked and felt different.
The meal we had was cooked perfectly and the service was friendly but intrusive. All in all we had a great meal and good drinks. I would definitely be back and back with friends too. Only gripe was we left just before Girls Aloud turned up for an end of tour bash....ah well :)20/03/2013 00:00:00Amazing Food!Make sure you arrive early for some cocktails in the amazing cinnabar upstairs. Food was excellent, and the service very good!15/03/2013 00:00:00StunningGreat venue..great service..ambience is spot on. My third visit so far, will be making it four soon!15/03/2013 00:00:00lovely mealHad the Sunday buffet, took my Mum for Mothers Day. Food was gorgeous, lots of choice. Staff were excellent and friendly, will definitely return again. Very good value for money.10/03/2013 00:00:00Fantastic !!!!!!!This place was lovely, somewhere a bit different with great food. I will be definitely going again. Don't listen to the other people who slate it on trip advisor. Me and my partner are very picky and we couldn't fault it one bit.10/03/2013 00:00:00Good timesOur waiter was excellent very helpful and attentive. The food was fantastic. I have been here with friends. With my husband and now with all the family. We had misunderstood just how the set menu option worked but the waiter explained this and then all was ok. Thanks for the memories!09/03/2013 00:00:00The food was very good andThe food was very good and service was excellent but was a little disappointed the bar wasn't open as we arrived early to have drinks first. Overall enjoyable and would like to go back.05/03/2013 00:00:00Enjoyable afternoon out.Lovely restaurant, with very friendly service. The food was great, and there was a large range available at the buffet. The music was slightly noisy in the background though. Definitely would go back again.03/03/2013 00:00:00Fantastic Service - Long WaitThe service received from all staff members was excellent. Very attentive and did not have to wait long for food. On arrival at the restaurant we were taken to the VIP area to wait for our table. We were waiting approx. 30 minutes and due to the drinks prices we had to make one drink last for the whole meal. Decor was beautiful, would definetely recommend for a special occasion. Food was good and cocktails gorgeous.02/03/2013 00:00:00Mouth Wateringly Outstanding!!!!Went there to celebrate my birthday, the cocktails are to die for, the food, is mouth wateringly delicious. I wish I lived in Manchester, I'd find a way to dine here on a daily basis.01/03/2013 00:00:00Amazing ExperienceI choose Vermillion because I wanted a special surrounding for my partner's birthday, it certainly lived up to the expectations. The resturant was in beautiful surroundings!! The food was lovely, both in their presentation and taste, and portions were fair. We went for the sunday to thursday fusion offer which was great value. They made a real effort in making my partner feel really special and even put a firework/candle in their dessert. I would deafinately go again!!25/02/2013 00:00:00FabulousMy sister came for her birthday and had the best time ever.23/02/2013 00:00:00BarThe bar was shut which was the only BIG dissapointment on the night.22/02/2013 00:00:00Great nightWe went to eat on a Sunday night which was perfect for me as I cant stand loud busy places.
The staff were very well presented and attentive.
The food was amazing. We had a sharing platter, it was enough to make me comfortably full but not sick, i was very content.
Good choice of food, beautiful place, not what I was expected. Encludes a beautiful bar area upstairs, perfect for lounging in 2's or in big groups.
Overall, I would definetly eat there again, and will probably just nip in for drinks some time!17/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent value.The restaurant looks great as well as the bar/club area at the top level.
For me, the restaurant, it is 5 star for food (even though i'm not a fan of thai food but that's just a personal preference), service and value. Same goes for the ambiance even if it could be a bit more quiter. Sometimes it feels a bit noisy but it's nothing that can distract your attention. I won't go in details anymore. It's deffinitely worth it, especially if you want to impress your beloved ones or the business partners with the great and unique architecture and interior design.14/02/2013 00:00:00Great nightif you want a great night with good food and beds to have cocktails on before and afterwards, this is the place to go.13/02/2013 00:00:00Really goodVery nice food, really nice interior design, not bad prices, quick and polite service. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back.13/02/2013 00:00:00A little special'It was a lovely meal beautifully presented. Excellent service and impressive surroundings. Will definitely return.13/02/2013 00:00:00Vegas-style in ManchesterFantastic atmosphere, great decor and delicious food. Would recommend for a large group and special occasions. We all loved it.09/02/2013 00:00:00ExcellentVisiting Vermilion made my day... Myself and my wife had dinner at Vermilion on our anniversary and it is a place to remember... I was searching online for the best resturants in Manchester and Vermilion was in the top five, then i searched for reviews... everyone has their taste and expericences good or bad.... but our's was amazing....09/02/2013 00:00:00not from this worldThe location is so different to others, the bar and the restaurant are worth a journey from Germany! I did it ! Only one point to critizise: the music (by the way the same as in all other restaurants in Manchester, Tallinn, Vilnius,Riga, Edinburgh) - it is definitely NOT my favourite, but thanks to the stag party beside my table I didn't hear it during the dinner....31/01/2013 16:00:00FabWe ate here on a £15 each champagne deal with 3 courses each. The food was delicious and well worth the money. Service was fab up until the point they forgot our drinks until we had finished our entire meal! I would recommend though.. Lovely atmosphere!31/01/2013 00:00:00Excellent restaurant, well design.Excellent restaurant, well design, good food. Service was outstanding conduct in a very friendly attitude with smiles.
Food was good for the meal deal we had, 3 course meal with a glass of Champagne for £15 each so can't complain.
We will back for sure to try food a la carte and because staff was so lovely, they made us feel welcome and help us with our specification.29/01/2013 16:00:00Vermillion: one in a million.Last night I went to the vermillion restaurant for the first time with two others. As we had never been, we were instantly pleasantly surprised that at reception, the staff offered to take our coats off us and put them in a secure cloak room. We were given a token to return upon our exit of the restaurant.
We then entered the dining area which was absolutely delightful.
We ordered from the Asian fusion set menu as we wanted to try a number of new dishes.
Great value for money, great staff, great management.
I will be eating there again.
Thank you vermillion. :)23/01/2013 16:00:00FabulousWe really enjoyed the evening at Vermilion - the deal with a meal and champagne for £15.00 is fantastic and well worth a try. I have been here before and will continue to return.15/01/2013 16:00:00We loved the relaxed ambienceWe loved the relaxed ambience of this place. I would definitely like to return to try more dishes. The food was excellent and full of flavours. Everyone loved our visit. Service was well-timed and friendly. Our only negative was that it was quite pricey but for a special occassion it was excellent.12/01/2013 16:00:00birthday bashI booked the restaurant for my partners birthday and they went above and beyond.
I received a phone call the morning of my reservation asking what drink I would like waiting on the table.
the staff were so friendly. They gave him a birthday card and complimentary champagne . The service was amazing07/01/2013 16:00:00Made a booking for a SaturdayMade a booking for a Saturday afternoon for my boyfriend's birthday. The restaurant was absolutely beautifully decorated inside, and surprisingly, we were the only customers, so the whole restaurant was just for us. The food was presented in a real fancy way with sauces to accompany each dish. The staff were extremely friendly and were always there to help. The restaurant was very clean and toilets were of a high standard, even with works going on.
We ordered the Asian fusion set meal and I must say, we were both fully satisfied when we'd finished the mail meal. We even asked to take the dessert home, so we wouldn't miss out on all the yumminess. I will most certainly be rebooking a meal at this restaurant. New favourite restaurant!07/01/2013 16:00:00excellent mealEnjoyed an excellence's meal here, I went with 2 other people who also liked it. Set menu was excellent value, I love this restaurant and will definitely be returning. Staff were great and so was the service.06/01/2013 16:00:00Always SpecialVermillion is still something of a hidden gem in Manchester. Eat there on a busy Friday or Saturday night and you will be telling your friends for weeks about the food, cocktails and funky bar. Week nights quieter but a great time to impress a business partner or book the lavish group tables complete with throne chairs and spinning centre table. The Giant Ocean Tiger Prawns are worth the visit on their own even if they are the most expensive starter in Manchester. 10% is added to the bill regardless of service or numbers so factor that in!
Top tip: for a romantic dinner ask for a seat near the wine room it's quite a sight and remember if you splash on a bottle of Champagne you can book an intimate 'cocoon' upstairs for after dinner drinks.06/01/2013 16:00:00Our first time at VermilionIn Italy we have never found anything like the vermilion.
We love Asian cuisine and here we find a rich menu of excellent dishes combined with a warm atmosphere and truly extraordinary.
We will recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have information about Manchester!27/12/2012 16:00:00Christmas Eve TreatWent here due to the excellent reviews from some friends.
Lovely evening out for Christmas Eve, everything from start to finish was absolutely
perfect.23/12/2012 16:00:00One of a kindThe atmosphere is exquisite, the service is impeccable and the food is world class.05/10/2012 00:00:00
