Always been a massive fan of Try Thai as you can never fault them as their food is amazing . As Manchester entered Tier 4 and we always have a Christmas booking here we decided to order via their delivery/ take out service Food was...absolutely amazing. One of Manchester finest restaurants.More

We should’ve been in Thailand for my birthday, our wedding anniversary and Christmas. Covid screwed that up. We should’ve then been out for a lovely meal for our anniversary/ my birthday and Covid messed that up too! So refusing to be beaten we started to...look for great Thai food that could serve us for our celebrations on a Monday night when most Thai takeaways / restaurants are closed. A post on my Facebook had 7 people recommend Try Thai within 30 minutes. It’s 6.5miles away though... ok... we’ll drive into Manchester for it. One phone call later, and with a very reasonable delivery charge we’d placed our order and they were willing to deliver to us! The food... wow!!!! Soooo good! Best compliment I can give is that two years ago my hubby took me on a hidden food tour of Bangkok. We tried so many varieties of pad Thai. They were all amazing. But none were a patch on the belly pork pad Thai from here! Everything we ordered was gorgeous and we even got extra crackers and a lovely birthday / anniversary card! We’re first time customers so but will 💯 be visiting the restaurant as soon as we can Massive thanks to Jenny for sorting th3 order! Can’t recommend enoughMore

Visited earlier in the year and the food was amazing. Lovely staff and spaced out tables. Good cocktail selection too. Can’t wait to go again!

We have been visiting Try Thai for years and the food is consistently outstanding. So fresh and authentic and great value for money. They have also revised two occasions this year in lockdown. During the first lockdown I had my birthday and then it was...our wedding anniversary at the start of lockdown 2. I contacted Try Thai via messenger to arrange a delivery, and responded really quickly to confirm our order. They are offering 15% off too this second lockdown which is fab! Both times the food arrived at almost the exact time we requested it. The food was hot, fresh and just as good as in the restaurant. Great portion sizes too! Thank you Try Thai for keeping us well fed on special occasions. Can’t wait to be able to visit the restaurant again.More

We booked a table for 8pm for 4 people and felt this was more than enough time to enjoy our meal and drinks. Their was plenty of waiting staff so we didn't have to wait long to order and get our food/drinks. The food was...gorgeous as always and very good portions sizes for the money, the soft shell chilli crab in particular is our favourite. Very tasty and one of the best Thai restaurants in Manchester,More

We booked on the evening of our visit and glad we did as the restaurant was very busy - when we got our starters, we could see why. The food was delicious and piping hot so obviously freshly made - we didn't have to wait...long at all from placing our order to receiving our food. We would definitely go back when visiting Manchester again.More

Really nice food. We went as a group of 4 and had the Sunflower and Ruby menus. Really nice mix of food, all very tasty. Knocked it down to 4 out of 5 because service was a little slow. It was busy though, and it...certainly wouldn't put us off going again.More

I only ever speak as I find. I don’t take much notice of what should or shouldn’t be a good or bad experience. So in a nutshell; massive disappointment. Starter was bean curd satay. Truly awful, deep fried old fat tasting heinous experience ; never...again! Main was soft crab and garlic / pepper. Be prepared for a sodium death. And crab which was also deep fried within an inch of its life with innards in tact. Also a jumbo king prawn garlic and pepper dish. Similar in the sodium / msg content but nicer as the prawns were good but not very hot. All in all a huge disappointment given the array of alternatives in the area. Ignore the many other trip advice; it’s very average at most. We did say how we felt with a discount at the end but money isn’t the issue when you go out for a nice Thai meal. This wasn’t that sadly.More

I don’t think it contained MSG as I can tell afterwards if I’ve had it

They say they do. Just make sure when you order. I don't see why they wouldn't help you with that. :D

The chicken and lamb is Halal as far as I am aware but do call the restaurant to check prior to visiting.
