From the glorious greenery of Hesse in Germany, comes to Chorlton the teutonic delights of classic German food. Hotpot Ess Paradies (that’s dining paradise for those not fluent in the language of… not love exactly, but love of sausages?) is a unique restaurant concept bringing together classic German ingredients and Manchester’s famously open-minded diners. The food of Goethe and Brecht in all its comforting-strudely goodness is writ large at Barlow Moor Road’s premier European kitchen.
Willkommen in… Manchester. Manchester’s dining scene has long been dominated by the flavours of the subcontinent, but European food is starting to enjoy something of a renaissance, particularly outside of the city centre. Those in the know have always headed to Chorlton for unique restaurants, away from the generic chains in town. In Hotpot Ess Paradies on Barlow Moor Road, locals have reason to be smug. Bringing the suß und salzig flavours of German cuisine (and let’s be honest, the beer too) to the north, they have enjoyed unprecedented success in reforming the Mancunian image of German food.
German food is unfairly caricatured as a wholly Wurst-led cuisine, but at the team at Chorlton’s Hotpot Ess Paradies are proving there’s more to German food than sausages! Naturally, the Barlow Moor Road eatery features some excellent bratwurst (and currywurst, and würstl) but there’s also schnitzel, stew and gulash too (there are even vegetarian options…). For Manchester’s curry-loving masses, the success of Hotpot Ess Paradies is a testament to the team’s very own Manc swagger. Head here for delicious German comfort food Guten Appetit!
Excellent restaurant with a good range of starters, mains and deserts and some very fine German beers. The staff gave us a big welcome and were attentive throughout our stay.
We took some friends tonight who loved the evening as much as we did. They found the food delicious too which is what we told them to expect. Thanks again!
Another lovely meal which we both really enjoyed. We will be back in the New Year to enjoy the warm reception and the delicious German food.
Another lovely time. Thank you! Great atmosphere and delicious authentic German food! This time with two German guests who thoroughly enjoyed it all! We will be back for sure!
I heard about the Ess Paradies a while back and always wanted to try it. Finally had a chance when my colleague agreed with me to go. We had Reibekuchen and both the Schnitzel Wiener Art (Pork) with the fries. It was delicious! We were both too stuffed for dessert. The staff was lovely and very friendly and as a native German we naturally spoke German. Rest assured I will be back!
The owners of this restaurant are wonderful, very helpful and happy. The food is fantastic, authentic and home made in house. The atmosphere is brilliant as well, low key, perfect for a relaxing meal with friends and drinks. Highly recommend
We received a warm welcome. A small homely place where you can see the kitchen and so see the food being freshly cooked. The service was good. The food was tasty, home made. Very reasonable prices. Wil definitely be going back again soon.
Wonderful service and a great meal had. We would highly recommend it. The staff were very friendly and helpful together with a great selection of beers also.
Good, honest and filling food, nice friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere, we'd definitely go again, even if just to try a few more dishes off the menu.
An amazingly friendly and authentically German restaurant, quality food, shut your eyes and you'll think you are back in Deutschland! Highly recommended, not to be missed.
