Viet Shack Restaurant

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor
Viet Shack

Arguably Manchester’s most well-known Vietnamese restaurant, Viet Shack started out as a hugely-popular street food stall before opening this restaurant in the city’s ‘trendiest’ district, Ancoats. They don’t take bookings so turn up early and have a backup option in place, as this restaurant is hugely popular, and for good reason.
