Student offer: Suki Suki, the unbeatable Pan-Asian street food restaurant situated by Great Northern Warehouse, will be fuelling Manchester freshers this year, handing out 400 free bottles of Peroni to lucky passers-by in the Deansgate area. Whether you’re a new student, or you’re returning to the city for another year of fun, head down to Suki Suki this week for the chance to grab a free bottle of Peroni.

From 25th September, the Suki Suki team will be taking to the streets of Manchester city centre, welcoming freshers and returning students, asking a host of quirky questions and setting entertaining challenges. If this wasn’t enough, Suki Suki is offering a 20% discount to all students from 25th September until the end of October – simply show your valid student ID card and make the most of the delicious deal.

Full review: You’ll find Suki Suki on Deansgate, connected to the ever-growing Great Northern Warehouse. It’s a smart-looking space, inspired by Japan’s drop-in bars and casual restaurants. Step inside and you’re met with a serious amount of attention to detail – relaxed lighting, a great soundsystem and a pitch-perfect seating layout. Much like the venue, the staff are young, relaxed and friendly – it feels like the kind of place you’ll head back to, again and again.

The Pan-Asian menu is wide-ranging surprisingly affordable considering the city-centre location, with decent offers such as three small plates for £16, but there are full sections for bao buns, ramen, curry and more.

The salt and pepper ribs are as good as it gets. It’s a bowl full of piping hot wings, coated with high-grade salt and pepper seasoning, plump and moreish – here, the emphasis is on the meat rather than gristle. The steamed sui mai are beautifully prepared, full of rich, potent aromas and tender to the touch.

If you like things fiery, the kamikazi wings are a good bet, thanks to the rich depth of flavour, putting them a cut above some of the bog-standard hot wings out there. And quite frankly, the salt and pepper chips are a must. They come dusted with the right amount of seasoning, plus some crunchy onion and pepper pieces to keep things interesting.

The bao buns are exceptional. They’re soft, fluffy, packed with potent ingredients and remarkably affordable. The ramen options are just as good – we opt for the Suki Suki ramen, with a tonkoksu broth, containing crispy fried soft shell crab, chunk of tofu, pak choi, beansprouts and seasonal vegetables – plus a boiled egg for luck.

Suki Suki is a great addition to Manchester’s city centre dining landscape. The whole experience is like being at a raved-about Asian street food stall, but in the kind of place you could imagine hanging out at all day – and late into the evening, courtesy of Suki Suki’s superb range of alcoholic drinks and cocktails.
