About GOSSIP

GOSSIP is one of a kind in Manchester, which obviously means it’s not your normal Malaysian spot. Instead, this cool cafe on Broadway is a celebration of the Malay kopitiam. These coffee shops were a part of daily life in the Malay states under British rule, where locals, colonial officials and passers-through would gather and, yes, gossip about the latest news. After independence the kopitiam stayed, embedded as an integral part of modern Malaysian culture. GOSSIP balances a European cafe vibe (replete with sleek wooden tables, low lighting and creative wall art) with superb Malaysian and Thai food. There are more creative rice, noodle and curry concoctions here in Moston than you could poke a chopstick at (for vegetarians, the nasi goreng nenas shouldn’t be missed) as well as tantalising small plates and some western fare (a mouthwatering tower cheese burger, for one). It’s unique, classy and incredibly satisfying – but it’s also popular, so it’s wise to book ahead.

I will definitely be returning to this restaurant, the good was amazing ,and there's lots more I want to try on the menu. my husband had thai, I had Malaysian, nothing bad to say about either dishes. very good portion sizes for starter and main, meals are not expensive, 3 choices of bottled beers,which were very nice.

this is a small-medium sized restaurant - which has a cafe theme. The room temp. was a little low and made it a little uncomfortable if you are sitting on the bare wooden seats. The speed of service and food delivery was fair. The starters was good except the chicken satay did not seem fresh/soft/succulent and the sauce was too mild. The curry puffs were slightly over-cooked. The main courses however was excellent, the rendang is the best i have had in the UK...so far. The rest of my family also loved the main courses which included mee curry and tom yam. The teh tarik was too diluted. The lychee drink was good. My rating i think reflects my family's experience. I would definitely return here but would encourage the owners to not slacken on quality on the "smaller" items of the menu.....otherwise i would have returned within a week!

friendly service, pleasant little restaurant tucked away on an unlikely moston crossroads, very good roti channai, beef rendang & mee udang, vg satay meat & marinade tho could do with a little more heat/char, similarly char kway teow was a little too too wet/could do with more wok-heat. overall - very impressed, some of the most authentic and tasty malaysian food i've had outside of malaysia (my folks are from penang/singapore). i'll be back again!

It was okay. Thai food is not up to par but their Malaysian food is lit. The restaurant is a title cramp and it doesn't know what atmosphere it wants to be. There's also two boys (assuming the owner's kids) just sitting on a table playing Clash of Clans with sound. Water is served in a jam jar of all things instead of... I don't know, normal cups!?

We always enjoy our visits to Gossip. The food is delicious and service is good. As its a BYO we do tend to take our own wine but the Malaysia/Thai beers available are very reasonably priced and are a good addition to the meal. In short you get good food at very reasonable prices.

Gossip on Broadway is very welcoming and friendly. There is a great choice on the menu and all of the starters and main courses we chose were fresh and very tasty. I would definitely return in the near future.

First time I have visited gossip but it won't be the last fresh food cooked to perfection and service second to none. Would recommend to anyone. And the price £40 for 4 of us including a bottle of wine.
