Back in July, Living Venture’s pan-Asian restaurant and bar, Australasia, launched a new sister venue, Sunset by Australasia. The relaxed terrace bar and stylish hideout is a ideal sipping spot thanks to a canopied, heated terrace and luxurious Pacific-inspired surroundings. Designed by Michelle Derbeyshire (Grand Pacific, Artisan), the space oozes Ibizan vibes… which is some achievement when you’re located just off Deansgate. Big sister restaurant and bar Australasia has a reputation for serving the best in sushi and seafood – and the Sunset menu follows suit, with menu inspired by Australian and Pacific Rim flavours. Highlights include ‘shabu’ broth style dishes served in hot granite bowls, Japanese ‘kakigori’ desserts with fresh fruit and shaved ice and sweet or savoury bento boxes. Cocktails are equally tropical – think Sunset Sangria, Pina Coladas and Frozen Pornstar Martinis. We’re lucky enough to be able to offer a Manchester Wire reader an Exotic afternoon tea for two people at Sunset By Australasia. The one-off prize includes a cocktail, savoury afternoon tea Bento box and sweet afternoon tea Bento box (per person). Competition closes on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at midnight. To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your details into the box below. Entrants are subscribed to our twice-weekly mailing list and we don’t share information with anyone else. The afternoon tea must be taken between noon and 5.30pm between Monday and Thursday. The prize is non transferable and is for two people maximum. The prize includes (per person) a Frozen Sunset Porn Star martini or a glass of Mirabeau Pure Rose, a savoury afternoon tea Bento box and a sweet afternoon tea Bento box.
