Having telephone booked a table for 8 in advance (works Christmas party) this became one of our strangest eating experiences............... The table was booked or 8-30 so we arrived at 8-20 after sampling a few of the delights of Manchester only to find that the place was shut & boarded up - it looked like it had been that way... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times for afternoon lunch but stopped going after finding a much better Thai restaurant only a few minutes away. The lunch menu is quite reasonably priced and the food can be quite good. Unfortunately it's always quite quiet during the day and the decor is dated. The staff aren't particularly friendly, rather... More

Groupon recently ran an offer for this place, and i have to say i wasnt really looking forward to going as i remember this venue from 20+ years ago and unfortunately it looks like the decor hasnt really had much attention since then. Looking past that though, the food was excellent. Really good Thai which i think is on a... More

I know many reviewers had mentioned the shabby appearance, but I guess that is why they are re-locating. We went with a Groupon voucher and were delighted! The god was delicious - great starters and we then both had pad tai. I have eaten any times in Thailand, but this was excellent. When they do move we will certainly be... More

We went to this restaurant as my son had a voucher, so along with my partner and both my sons, we had a table booked. Having then read the reviews, I dragged my feet, and with a heavy sense of foreboding, reluctantly arrived at a tired looking entrance. However, once in, we were immediately greeted by a smiling waitress, and... More

Excellent staff and food. Have been before for the main menu which has a wide choice, and also to the tuk tuk menu which is very good value for money. Only dissapointment is the look of the place, Could be great with just a little update. However i guess its very authentic Thai!
