Contemporary underground market hall Hello Oriental, specialising in Chinese cuisine, is here – and it’s a food lover’s paradise. Spanning three whole floors, some of which sit underground, Hello Oriental provides Mancs with a one-stop destination for Chinese and Vietnamese grub, and forms part of the huge new Circle Square development, which is set to be a go-to for food, drink and live entertainment when it fully opens.
Opening earlier this year following numerous delays, the new Oxford Road venue is the brainchild of restaurant Ocean Treasure – and boasts an ultra-modern food hall, a supermarket stocking high-quality produce and a Chinese bakery. Providing an Asian-infused experience like no other in the North West, guests can indulge in some of the finest Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean dishes when visiting Hello Oriental, including roast meats, colourful bao buns, loaded fries and pho – alongside Instagrammable soft serve ice creams served in teddy bear-shaped cones.
In addition to an unrivalled food offering, guests can also expect DJs and live music when visiting Hello Oriental, setting the tone for a fantastic social venue where guests can gather with mates and dig into tons of different street food dishes.
The food hall is also home to various bars, serving up delicious Asian-inspired cocktails, boozy bubble tea, and even jugs of Chinese beer.
Hello Oriental is open seven days a week, and you can find it at Circle Square on Oxford Road.
