Great food - unorganized service

Loved, loved, loved the food - once it arrived. We had a party of 11 with a reservation. Positives - accommodated special requests, friendly people, fantastic food. Negative - service - meals came out at different times. Two orders were missed entirely, and came out 10 plus minutes later... read more

Last year they asked us to leave after finishing dinner because too many were waiting. This year was equally as bad. If you have to....get take out. Food... More

This used to be a very good, if somewhat expensive, Thai restaurant, which was a treat in an area not known for it's ethnic cuisine options! However, in the last couple of years, the quality of the food has declined significantly. Not sure if it was a change of ownership, or a change in the kitchen staff, but Manchester deserves... More

We grabbed a quick lunch while traveling through Manchester. The food was tasty and service was very efficient as we arrived at the tail end of the lunch hour. Prices were reasonable. Ambiance was elegant

Living in NYC I have access to any number of Thai restaurants so I did not have too high hopes for a little Thai place in VT! WOW was I surprised the food was some of the best food I have had outside of Thailand! Very fresh tasting, not overkill spicy which allows you to actually taste the curry flavors.... More

I have eaten in many Thai restaurants and some in Thailand. This one is worth taking time to visit. My wife and I like its modest and intimate setting. The food is excellent.

Excellent dinner and service, warm atmosphere. We started with chicken satay and delicious papaya salads. Yellow curry and Pad Woon Sen were both very good. Unfortunately, the baby carrots in the Pad Woon Sen were somewhat moldy, but when removed they meal was wonderful. Well worth a visit.

Overall, the food was very good and priced reasonably. We ordered the Pad Si-Ew with chicken and the Red Curry with chicken. Both main courses were were quite tasty. I really enjoyed the Red Curry which achieved that perfect balance between flavor and heat that is sometimes hard to find in Thai cuisine. We also ordered a shrimp tom yum... More
