This was our first visit in a party of five on a Saturday night. We were looking forward to some tasty dishes based on the website. Unfortunately we left feeling like we wouldn't return. Here's why: - two out of three starters didn't arrive, then we were told we didn't order them. These starters then appearered with our main courses,... More

we fancied Thai while on a weekend away and was a little put off by the outside as it shares an entrance to a karaoke bar upstairs with bouncers on the door. However the entrance is just off to the right inside and it was a little offputting by roudy youngsters on their way to the karaoke passing by the... More

The restaurant was quiet but we did arrive at 18:45 so it may get busier later on. Food was delicious and portion sizes were great. Many reviews comment about the decor but its clean, comfortable and does seem to have been updated recently. Staff were friendly and efficient. Overall I would say it was good value for money and highly... More

went here on a sunday night and we were the only 2 people in the place. To say the decor is tired is an understatement. The lady serving, dont know if she was the owner or not , was more interested in talking to a friend who came in for a chat than she was in tending to us. All... More

The service and food here are absolutely excellent, I cannot fault it. Yes, the decor is a little dated and it doesn't look much from the outside, but it nevertheless has a certain charm. It's also very reasonably priced for a city centre location. Would definitely visit again if wanting Thai food in Manchester.

Despite the shabby decor and old musty smell of the rotting wood, this place has certain character. The food is actually well presented and rather nice considering the low prices for a city centre restaurant. My concern for the restaurant is only that it needs a serious makeover bringing it back to life. We visit the the Karaoke bar affiliated... More

We went to this place because years ago we had been to the Royal Orchid and they told us this was its sister restaurant. We tried not to be put off by the terrible photos, dirty and tired on the outside (wish we were). We tried not to be put off by the internal very shabby decor. We ordered. Utter... More

Absolutely lovely, we fancied a Thai did a quick search and came across this beauty.  What's even better is that they accept taste card on a Friday.  Starters where amazing and the main we had thai yellow curry, so tasty. We also got pad thai noodles.  Perfect would recommend this to everyone and I will be here again for sure. ... More

Dont be put off by the outside look of this place. The exterior and also the interior need a lot of TLC but the food was wonderful, the service was brilliant and the servers were most attentive.
