Conference Dinner: Tattu

The Image Conference is pleased to announce the Conference Dinner.

Located in the heat of Manchester, Tattu offers a modern Chinese cuisine experience.

Tattu is an independent family run business founded in 2015 by two brothers with a clear vision – to bring something unique and exciting to the UK culinary scene. The word Tattu is derived from a combination of ‘Tattoo,’ the art form that inspires our interiors, and ‘Tatau,’ which is an ancient word from eastern culture that means to ‘make a mark’. The goal was to build a customer experience around the brand that stimulates all senses, fusing beautiful and meaningful design with quality and innovative Chinese cooking.

Tattu’s award-winning approach to interior design ensures that the restaurant is carefully designed to take guests on a sensory journey from the traditional East to the modern West. Through a painstaking attention to detail, every single element has a purpose and a connection with the identity of the restaurant.

Diners are encouraged to embrace the customary approach of sharing dishes, from colorful dim sum and luxurious small plates to contemporary main course dishes and stunning desserts. Each seasonal menu is created by talented chefs utilizing only premium ingredients sourced from carefully selected suppliers, delivered by highly-trained front of house teams with a strong focus on a meticulous and engaging customer service.
