Here at Tampopo, we take incredible dishes from the streets of East Asia – Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan – and recreate them for the good people of Manchester and London.
Our Pan-Asian menu has been shaped by our journeys across the region – journeys we still regularly undertake, discovering amazing new recipes and learning from the chefs who’ve perfected them. We bring you the real flavours, real textures, real freshness – and, for those that crave it, that real heat-kick, too.
Whether you’re peckish or famished, feeling adventurous or craving comfort, the Tampopo menu has you covered. From steaming bowls to sociable sharing plates, corn fritters to nasi goreng chicken, we’ve got the dishes to make your heart sing and your tongue tingle.
We’ve also got scaled-down options for the kids, and a wide selection of meal-complimenting drinks both soft and boozy.
The OG of Tampopo locations! Small but perfectly formed, with a cosy max capacity of 64. We’re less than five minutes’ walk from either Deansgate or Spinningfields, with the nearest tram stop being St. Peter’s Square. Coming by car? The surrounding streets have metered parking.

Our name ‘Tampopo’ (a Japanese girl’s name meaning ‘dandelion’) is also the title of a Japanese film, which chronicles a woman’s search for the perfect bowl of noodles; a quest we recreate at Tampopo today.
We’ve travelled all over East Asia to bring back our favourite dishes for you to enjoy. So sit and savour the aromas and flavours from the bustling street markets of Bangkok, the hawker stalls of Singapore and the noodle vendors of Tokyo.
