Yakisoba& Cakeaway-  Manchester
My cousins leaving meal, he's off to uni, Cambridge to be specific (yes.. I did just outline that, how could you not outline it, PROUD COUSIN HERE!) Anyway, back to the point so we chose to go Yakisoba, situated in Chorlton Manchester. Its a sort of Chinese/ Japanese restaurant, really warm and homely atmosphere I would say, not your typical type of loud music, busy, dressed up environment. So we ordered a mixed sizzler starter platter, we swapped the beef option to lamb and chicken as beef is not halal there- the platter was lovely, made us have high expectations for the main as it was a great start. 
Our mains shortly followed -they were quick with serving that's something I liked and  they also gave us this extra free separate tray of food (top right pic) it had fruit, tofu soup, prawn crackers...That was different. 
I ordered the Pad Thai, Its basically like noodles mixed in with prawns, vegetables, sounds standard really but honestly they add something magic to this dish and I always end up getting it wherever I go- rice, fuzion literally anywhere that has it! As I've had it many times before I was able to compare it easily .... This one was terrible- it left a bitter taste , I had like 6 bites and left it, quite sickening. My cousins had ordered two other dishes- they had the same experience a few bites and it was left. I definitely wont be going there again, a shame really quite enjoyed the relaxed cosy atmosphere- rate it 5/10 and that's being nice!

We ended the night in Cakeaway Didsbury- really nice deserts, always share as its so rich a few bites and your literally done trust me we all have a sweet tooth and we struggled. Today was my third time going to this place, they do make you wait like 20 mins before your  served  your deserts but it may just be because the cookies are made from scratch? My mates  haven't had good experiences with this place- I think its when you order online through just eat- it takes too long to be delivered. I recommend you actually go to Cakeaway and try it. They do amazing occasional cakes!
