A new Chinese restaurant is opening at Circle Square this month, bringing its signature ‘secret recipe’ dumplings, noodles and broths to the Oxford Road corridor.
Due to open its doors this month, new opening Mr Su has already been a fixture in Leeds since 2019. Now owners have their sights firmly set on Manchester.
When the new restaurant opens next week, customers will be able to build their own noodle bowls from scratch: choosing their own toppings before picking one of Mr Su’s signature secret recipe broths.
Founded by Jimmy Su, who has over 25 years of experience working in top restaurants in Dubai, China, and the UK, the menu features high-quality noodles, dumplings, and a range of broths all prepared in-house to special secret recipes.
The offering is extensive, but in a good way with multiple variations of what it does best: noodles and dumplings all at reasonable prices.
Broth choices include normal, tomato, seafood, spicy, or pickled, whilst the toppings station will offer up a range of traditional and more localised options from veg and chicken, to prawns and beef.
Once toppings have been picked, customers simply take their selections to the counter where they’ll be made up into a mouth-watering bowl of noodles.
The menu features specialty dumplings filled with a variety of ingredients like lamb and Chinese leaves, priced from just £3.90 for six. Elsewhere, you’ll find the likes of chicken and duck street noodles and mixed veg noodles.
Mr Su is set to open on the ground floor of the Vita Student Medlock Building at Circle Square from Monday 15 May.
Speaking on the new opening Jimmy Su, co-owner of Mr Su, said: “We can’t wait to officially open the doors to Mr Su Manchester to show the city our specialty noodles and dumplings, that have been 25 years in the making.
“We’re all about great tasting, good-quality homemade noodles and dumplings accessible to everyone which is reflected in our price – traditional Chinese food isn’t meant to break the bank, and we’re incredibly excited to open in Manchester building upon the success of our Leeds store.”
Mr Su opened its first store in Leeds in 2019, situated on Blenheim Terrace, the restaurant has gone from strength to strength, cementing Mr Su’s as the go-to place for noodles and dumplings in the city.

A massive spooky outdoor ice rink is coming back to Manchester this Halloween
It’s time to dig out your scare skates, as Manchester will soon be home to one of the UK’s largest outdoor ice rinks yet again this Halloween.
As the nights begin to draw in and the air gets colder by the day, we all know that means the spooky season is just around the corner, right? And, of course, that also means it really won’t be long before a whole host of ghoulish monsters begin to take their place on top of the city centre‘s tallest buildings just in time for Halloween.
While the iconic MCR Monsters will, once again, take centre stage as part of the annual Halloween in the City event, they’re not the only returnees to the scene.
That’s right, Scare Skate is back – and there’s some new additions this year.
Just like it has many years before, Cathedral Gardens will become become home to Manchester’s – and one of the UK’s – largest outdoor ice rink for October half term, as Scare Skate sees Halloween fans and fear-loving families take to the ice for some “frightfully good fun”.
Skaters can expect Halloween-themed music, lighting, and lots of themed props to help “ignite the fright factor”, and not only that, but new for this year, a frightfully-realistic giant spider wrapped in bright-white LED lights will stand front and centre.
Always a highlight in the city’s spooky social calendar, fancy dress is encouraged, and skaters are invited to capture those all-important photo worthy moments on the ice.
“Halloween is an integral part of the Manchester calendar, and we’re thrilled to see Scare Skate play an important part in the city celebrations for another year,” Kelly Baker, who is the Director of event coordinators, Managed Ice Rinks, ahead of the event’s arrival.
“Scare Skate is the perfect activity to bring the family together this season, and we’re looking forward to celebrating Halloween in the Cathedral Gardens grounds”.
Scare Skate will arrive in Cathedral Gardens from 27 – 31 October 2022.
Then, following the opening week of Scare Skate, the ghoulish spider will go into hibernation and a dazzling seven-metre Christmas tree will take its place and transform the area into the ultimate winter wonderland.
Tickets for Scare Skate are now on sale, and prices start at just £15.50 for adults and £12.50 for children – with discounted family, group bookings and season tickets also available.
Brickhouse Social is hosting a brand new Harry Potter-themed pub quiz
Everyone loves a good quiz and while we know there are some non-believers, we think it’s fair to say most people grew up loving Harry Potter. Put those two things together and what do you get? The perfect night out for a Potterphile.
No, we said ‘Potter-phile’.
Manc favourite hangout and popular student spot, Brickhouse Social, has just announced the launch of their new Harry Potter-themed pub quiz, the first of which is set to take place on 4 October.
And just like any good quiz team, any quiz worth its salt needs a good name. Let us introduce you to Brickhouse‘s first-ever ‘Quizitch’ night. Well played — five points to Gryffindor.
Playing host to a horde of fantasy trivia nerds (ourselves firmly included) across their three-storey venue, the quiz starts at 7pm and will put Potterheads to the test with several rounds of questions about the famous book and film series devised by their resident Harry Potter expert.
From Azkaban, muggle magic and the Forbidden Forest to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Quizitch is set to be a Potterhead’s dream.
Better still, although it might not quite be the Triwizard Cup, there is going to be a veritable Honeydukes Express’ worth of prizes on offer, including bar tabs, slices of pizza and more.
Last but not least, the best part about this place is that once you’re all quizzed out, you can always head upstairs for a drink on the terrace, shoot some pool on the first floor or dance the night away at the Kable Club down in the basement afterwards.
You can reserve a table by simply emailing [email protected] or you can always give the guys a ring on 0161 236 4899.
Now, we’ll warn you: spots are being snapped up quickly so get in touch ASAP if you want to take part and even if not, you can always try your luck in case someone drops out. Either way, this won’t be the last time you’ll see Brickhouse diving into the Wizarding World.
Lastly, if all else fails, it’s not like there aren’t a whole host of other great pub quizzes going on around Greater Manchester all week long.
