A glamorous Chinese restaurant in Manchester has launched a new bottomless brunch and, by our calculations, it might just be one of the most expensive in the world.
Glitterati favourite Tattu, based in Spinningfields, has revealed the menu for its new Sunday event a Tribe of Tattu brunch – set to run on every bank holiday in April and May – ahead of its launch on 30 April.
Frequented by celebs such as Coleen and Wayne Rooney, Michelle Keegan, Lucy Fallon and Stephanie Waring, the restaurant’s swanky new May bank holiday bottomless brunch offers guests three courses for £47.50, with more optional add-ons bringing its potential food total to a whopping £82.50.
Add on to that various drinks packages priced at £50, £28.50 and £20 respectively, and the most expensive option totals somewhere up to £115.50 and £132.50 a head.
The steep price puts Tattu’s brunch firmly amongst the world’s ten most expensive bottomless brunches, outstripping the Michelin-starred Blue Bay brunch in Monaco with bottomless glasses of Moët et Chandon vintage 2013 (£120), and The Waldorf Astoria’s famous bottomless brunch in New York (£100).
Dish choices, that said, do sound stunning. Options on Tattu’s new brunch menu include the likes of chicken truffle shumai, tuna sashimi blossom and salt & pepper loin ribs for starters, followed by mains of red snapper tom yum or wok fired chicken and steamed jasmine.
Optional ‘stage two’ menu add-ons, meanwhile, include a mouthwatering caramel soy-aged black wagyu beef fillet (£18), and Shanghai black cod with hoisin, ginger and lime(£17).
The brunch is then finished off with a stunning ‘Cherry Blossom’ dessert with white chocolate, cherry and candyfloss, bringing the restaurant’s famous sakura trees to life on the plate.
Drinks packages are then added on separately, with the most expensive option – a freely flowing champagne package of Laurent Perrier Brut – priced at £50 per person.
Alternatively, guests can opt for the signature package offering a selection of non-stop cocktails including Skull Candy (Crystal Head vodka, candy and lemon) and Koko Tattu (Bacardi, coconut and lime) for £28.60 per person.
There is also a non-alcoholic bottomless drinks package on offer with two virgin mocktails – a virgin Mountain Spritz (Everleaf Mountain, Lavender and bubbles) and Sweet Skullduggery (Kiwi, blueberry and apple) – to choose from.
Running at Tattu on Bank holiday Sundays throughout April and May, the menu does not state how long the drinks packages run for.
However, staff at Tattu told The Manc that it all depends on how big your group is: so a table of two would enjoy 1 hour and 45 minutes of endless drinks, whilst a table of three or four would be given two hours of bottomless booze ‘and so on’.
Asked how long a larger group of eight would be given to enjoy their endless champagne or cocktails, The Manc was informed it would be 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Inside One Eight Six as Manchester cocktail bar finally reopens two years after devastating New Year’s Eve fire
One Eight Six, the Manchester cocktail bar that was destroyed in a blaze on New Year’s Eve, is finally ready to reopen.
The stunning subterranean bar and live music venue has been closed since the very early hours of 2022, when a fire broke out shortly after the midnight countdown.
Terrifying CCTV footage at the time showed balloons across the ceiling catching fire and around 170 people fleeing the blaze.
It’s since been confirmed that the cause of the fire was real pine Christmas trees that were fastened to the ceiling, set alight by celebratory sparklers inside the bar.
Ever since that fateful night, One Eight Six has been quiet – until now.
The popular Deansgate bar is finally ready to quite literally rise from the ashes, having undergone an extensive refurbishment.
Its interior was completely destroyed in the New Year’s Eve fire, but has been reborn better than ever before.
Customers will again enter the bar through a barbershop at street level, with in incredible twisting neon light feature hanging from the ceiling.
Then after heading down the stairs you’ll find yourself in an art deco speakeasy, with the stage set for live music until the early hours.
Huge curved velvet booths in shades of pink and red will provide guests with a luxurious night out setting.
One Eight Six has installed opulent black marble floors and glowing light arches too – not to mention a giant ‘One Eight Six’ sign in mirrors.
Walls and pillars have been covered in even more mirrors to reflect the huge mirror ball and stage lights.
Founder Dean Mac said: “After nearly two years, we are finally allowed to be back on our feet giving the people of Manchester what they have been waiting so patiently for.
“Thank you again for sticking with us and supporting our journey this far. This new chapter of ONE EIGHT SIX will be better than ever. Same vibe. Same location. Just a whole lot sexier…”
It’s all looking pretty luxurious – just like before.
One Eight Six will officially open its doors this weekend on Deansgate, with bookings live here.
