Phet Pailin is a regular haunt of ours and it's great to see it is maintaining its high standard. I guess a downside of this is that it's getting difficult to get a table now but, after the food we had last night, that's no surprise. The tamarind fish was amazing, the green curry good and the prawns with basil... More

I was there to have a dinner. The place is small but comfortable. The staff are nice but honestly some of them they are not prepared to be waitress.I ordered two plates and the food was really awesome. I carried by own alcohol drink (because it is allowed) but I never had a glass and I had to drink of... More

Went with friends. Quality ingredients but I couldn't finish my meal. It was so heavy in oil I had to drain it before I could attempt to eat it. Everything else was saturated in salt and to add taste it was àddition of chilli.

Went to the restaurant last night on the off chance as we were in China Town, no reservation. The staff were accommodating and although fully booked managed to find us a spot. We spent a month in Thailand recently so were hoping it'd be like being on holiday again. We ordered or two favourite dishes from the holiday (lucky they... More

Contacted the restaurant by email twice to book, received no response. Called and was told this was due to a "problem with the email". Booked for 8 people, a mix of business-and-birthday lunch, and arranged with co-workers to ensure everyone could clear their schedules for (what should have been) today's lunch. Phet have just contacted me, 35 minutes before our... More

Went with a group of 9 people. The mixed starter is always our go to (beware the squeaky fishcakes!). The food is always delicious and the service speedy. Relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably priced. I cannot stop going back!

Ate at Phetpailin last night for my friends birthday and have to say we were all actually very disappointed which was surprising considering all the great reviews. We were a party of 12 which I appreciate isn't easy but we just felt they didn't make life easy for themselves at all! The restaurant isn't that big and we were very... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Manchester, Phetpallin always delivers. The fact you bring your own bottle, means it's a relatively cheap night out. But that's not the reason to try this splendid Thai eatery in the heart of Manchester's China Town. The food is exquisite, the service exemplary, and we always have a great time in this cozy, little... More
