A Chinese restaurant in Manchester has just been crowned the city’s best for the third year running.

One Plus in Manchester city centre revealed on Wednesday that it had taken home the gong for the Best Chinese Restaurant in Manhester at the Restaurant Guru awards for the third year in a row.

Sharing a picture of its award on social media, the restaurant wrote: “Thanks for this award. That’s 3 on the bounce taking this award for 2020, 2021 and now 2022.”

Commenting on having completed an award-winning hattrick in the ever-challenging post-Covid restaurant climate, the team continued, adding: “It’s not been easy and I don’t see it getting any easier but it’s nice to be recognised again.”

The Charles Street restaurant has won numerous awards since opening in the city in 2018, first drawing people in with the opportunity to cook their own hot pot dishes from a conveyor belt of different options.


Today, people go just as much for its excellent hot pot as they do for One Plus’s hand-stretched noodles, Chinese BBQ and rice dishes.

Split across three levels, the restaurant offers something different from other Chinese eateries in Manchester with a rice and noodle bar in its basement, authentic Chinese BBQ and an a la carte seafood menu on the first floor, and Chinese hot pot on the ground floor.

As part of the Chinese BBQ experience, diners can keep their food hot or charred towards their preference via their own personal coal pit on their table.

Elsewhere, the hot pot dining experience offers individual broths with food delivered from a ‘sushi style’ conveyor belt, so whatever catches your eyes, pop this into your tasty broth and eat when ready.
