Celebrity chef and patron of Randall & Aubin Ed Baines explains:
“Randall & Aubin has always proved popular with the Chinese community in Soho and Manchester, who especially enjoy our fresh lobster, oysters and show-stopping Plat de Fruit de Mer. Now with direct flights into Manchester from Beijing with Hainan Airlines, it means even more Chinese visitors to the city, and this is why we have now opted to translate our menu into Chinese to ensure they feel welcome dining with us.”

Randall & Aubin aren’t stopping there; they are celebrating the Chinese New Year the best way they know how with some unique dishes being added onto the menu with a delectable Chinese twist on some sea-food classics.
Oysters are given an oriental re-vamp and presented Shanghai-style. The Rock Oysters are lightly battered to create a crispy casing then served with soy sauce, ginger and garlic, alongside a raw salad. Bright, fresh, and embracing all the wonderful flavours of the Far East, this is a platter of perfection not to miss.
For starters, make sure to try the Crispy Duck Salad – a striking combination of vermicelli noodles, juicy mango, rich hoisin dressing and brown shrimp, all muddled with lime, chilli and coriander for that lip-smacking finish. And the main event is a real speciality that’s a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach – Singapore chilli crab with watercress, cashew and watermelon salad. It is a real showstopper.
On the weekend of 16th February, the streets around Manchester will be transformed with even more vibrancy, colour and Far Eastern charm than usual, as the place erupts in celebration of Chinese New Year.
Dragon dancers, boisterous parades, glowing red lanterns and awe-inspiring street performers will turn the area into a dazzling display of Chinese culture that welcomes the Year of the Dog. So make sure you decide to celebrate in style with the special menu or perhaps the more traditional Chinese celebratory meal of Lobster in our awe-inspiring Plat de Fruit de Mer.
The special menu will be available alongside their usual à la carte menu on Saturday 17th February only.
