A chic basement dwelling entered via a glass triangle-shaped pod, Australasia brings modern Australian-style cuisine to central Manchester. Alongside Pacific Rim flavours and influences from Europe, Indonesia, South East Asia and Japan, guests can indulge in a modern take on afternoon tea.

An Asian-style afternoon tea is served in 2 ‘waves’ at Australasia in Manchester, with fresh salad and sushi followed by sweet treats accompanied by flowering teas. A cherry-picked list of sakes and exclusive cocktails are served at the bar, and cleansing infused water flavours include watermelon, and orange & galangal.

The Australasia menu also features a rage of supreme sashimi, nigiri and Californian rolls, as well as tempura, and sizzling delicacies from the robata grill. Amongst the ‘big’ and ‘small’ plates, favourites include warm duck salad with papaya & peanuts, or crispy suckling pork belly with pineapple curry.

Whitewashed brick and woven wicker furnishings are found indoors at Australasia restaurant, while the canopied garden terrace offers a tranquil urban oasis. Salford Central Station is a 7-minute walk away.

    We had the Asian afternoon tea offer. Fantastic value for money. Beautifully presented fresh delicious food. Seated on the outdoor terrace on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Service was slow but we didn't mind as we weren't in any rush. Staff very very busy. Maybe need to take on some more waiting on staff

    food was lovely , waitress really friendly . the downside though it was extremely noisy with large parties in same area as people having afternoon tea. hen parties wandering in and out . couple at side of us smoking electronic cigarette 's whilst we were eating . overall nice place , but could do with separate area away from people just drinking

    Staff lovely, food average was not worth £25.00 each. We could have ordered more of the normal menu for less and got more different dishes.

    Absolutely fabulous Afternoon Tea - great sushi selection and gorgeous desserts. Lovely atmosphere and good service - the only thing I didn't like was the very loud music making it difficult to talk.

    The afternoon tea was lovely, but it became very busy within an hour of us arriving, and we lost that relaxing ambience.
    A good twist on a traditional afternoon tea and was very tasty.

    We really enjoyed the Asian afternoon tea .It was a nice alternative to an English one and the cakes especially were delicious
    We booked on line and it was advertised as afternoon tea with a glass of champagne ,but on the menu it was shown as "champagne" which was actually sparkling wine.It was very nice but not as advertised-disappointing
    Also our cakes disappeared and we had approximately an hours wait between waves
    Finally the heaters kept coming on so it was ridiculously warm and we had to keep asking for them to be turned off
    A nice tea but could have been better
    Our waitress was excellent
