We were in Chinatown, Manchester on a Thursday evening and undecided whether to go for: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, etc. My wife looked in Try Thai and said it seemed decent but they were busy and it would be a 30 minute wait. We decided to go in and have a drink in their bar while we waited. Our table was... More

Eaten here a year ago, and then tonight, lovely food, king prawns in Penang sauce was real good, spring rolls were a bit naff, compared to the prawns starter, price wise.... I wouldn't order them again, the mains were very nice thick red curry, 3 spice Thai sauce, prawn pad Thai was good as was the sticky rice. Overall a... More

We responded to generally positive reviews and came away very happy with Try Thai and would happily return. Superb starters on each of the meat based set menus - the slightly crispy noodle/vegetable dish was an unexpected treat. Main courses very good too - especially the yellow chicken curry. No dishes were disastrously spicy - one or two were unhelpfully... More

We came during a 'Happy hour' menu time and really enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. The calamari starter was over-done and very rubbery, however satay chicken was great. For mains we had thai red curry with sticky coconut rice and garlic&ginger stir fry with egg fried rice, both dishes very absolutely delicious and freshly prepared. We will definately come again.

Everything was perfect about our meal: the gracious, swift friendly service, the lovely modern interior, the excellent food and the really good value for money. We had the 3 course veggie banquet at £20pp. It was refined, superbly tasty, varied and made of high quality ingredients. The ice cream dessert wasn't your usual afterthought: it was a proper sundae with... More

OK food, but ask for a table away from the main route to the kitchen. One waiter stormed past our table carrying way too many plates in an unstable pile, the inevitable happened and several fell off, hitting my friend and pouring leftover sauce and food onto his arm. The waiter was apologetic, but all they did was a quick... More

We were in Manchester for an exhibition and found this lovely restaurant in trip advisor. We shared a vegetarian buffet and the food was lovely. There was a nice selection and the value for money was very good. The staff were friendly and the decor is beautiful. Just on the edge of China town.

Almost passed it up because we looked in the 1st floor and it was empty (usually a bad sign) but went ahead in...hostess took us to 2nd floor which was packed full! We got there just as happy hour ended but they let us order off the happy hour menu anyway. Pretty good deal. 1 starter, 1 entre, and 1... More

After reading good reviews, I went for an evening meal and the food was fantastic. The menu is varied and every dish is cooked and presented beautifully. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff are kind and attentive. I've returned a few times since and everytime I have received excellent food and service. Best thai in Manchester by far!
