If you follow me on social media, you will know that I have been so excited to visit this new restaurant in Manchester. Last week Ed and I finally got to visit Tattu and experience what it had to offer. When we first entered the restaurant, we were blown away by the interior and attention to detail. It is very clear that a lot of thought and passion has gone into making this restaurant into what it is. The interior design is a work of art, it really is amazing! The bottom floor consists of a bar with a nautical theme, a lot of ropes, naked bulbs and rustic wooden tables. You will also notice a lot of art on the walls, hands up to the amazing artists and photographers that have been featured, they are brilliant. 

Whilst waiting for a table, our coats were taken and we were asked to take a seat by the bar. The waiter came over and was so friendly and knowledgeable about the drinks, he was confident which put Ed and I at ease as we had never heard of some of the cocktails. Ed went for the Smokin' Aces which was described as "A smokin’ blend of chipotle pepper rum, rye whiskey and falernum with a dash of Chungo Amargo Bitters and finished with an ice-cold bullet" and by iced-cold bullet, they literally put a bullet in the drink, really cool touch! I had the Skull Candy which is described as "A sweet blend of vodka combined with lavender, strawberry bubblegum and fresh lychee". This cocktail tasted AMAZING and also came in a glass skull, I won't lie I felt pretty cool drinking it!! Both of our cocktails had a silky smoke coming off them which added a really beautiful look, mine also came with an edible flower, something the restaurant seem to incorporate throughout their courses. Even though we had only had a cocktail, we already felt overwhelmed with how amazing it was!

We were informed that our table was ready by one of the waitresses who was also extremely friendly, we walked upstairs and again, we were blown away by the interior design. In the middle of the room sat a beautiful blossom tree, yes, I said blossom tree! It looks amazing and there were bulbs hanging from the branches which looked awesome! We took our seats and had a look at the menu, I have to admit I had no idea what some of the meals were, luckily our waitress was really knowledgeable and explained everything, she also offered advice on what sides would best suit our main! I went for the Red Roast Baby Chicken which came with Master stock, kumquat, shitake and baby bok choy. I was advised to get a side of Duck Egg and Sausage Fried Rice to soak up the juices from my main. Ed went for the Iberico Char Siu whih came with Choi Sum, spring onion, orange and lemon marmalade. we were both impressed with the presentation and flavours in our meals. I have never had anything like it before, there were so many new scents and flavours, I was really happy with my choice! 

When it came to dessert I was feeling quite full, not like me at all! I had told the waitress I did not want a dessert but she convinced us to share the Year Of The Goat which consisted of Goats milk, plum and lapsang souchong  beads, rice noodles, edible flowers and more! We were already drawn to this as Ed drinks Lapsang tea non stop! I am so glad we had a dessert as it was amazing, the tea beads explode in your mouth and it's like nothing I have had before, it is presented like a piece of art! 

As you can tell, I have nothing but positivity towards this restaurant! It was truly amazing and it's an experience you have to try if you love great food! We will definitely be returning, it offers a completely new take on dining out and turns eating into an amazing experience!
