I have been here three times now over the last year, and think it is a real gem of China town in Manchester. The decor leaves a little to be desired, and you might not think that the restaurant is particularly special when you first arrive, but the food and service is some of the best in Manchester. The restaurant... More

We've been here a few times now and it never disappoints. It's definitely worth seeking out, but it's not too big and has been full every time we've visited so make sure you book. I almost always get the beef panang (it's what I keep going back for). Chicken satay skewers and the green curry are very good too, we... More

Visited here today at lunch time with work colleagues and having never been before I have to say it was quite a nice place. In china town (Manchester) I do think looks can be deceiving and I am not entirely sure I would have gone in if it wasn't in these circumstances BUT the food was delicious and it offers... More

Booked for Saturday night in advance of the Coldplay concert the following day. As busy as you would expect on a Saturday night, prices on the high side but justifiable due to the excellent food which was tasty & delicious. Would recommend for a treat!

This may be my new favourite restaurant the food was so tasty! Definitely the best Thai food I've ever had in the U.K.! The staff are so friendly as... More

My boyfriend and I have visited this restaurant over 30 times in the last few years and we've ordered the same dishes every single time (bar one!). The waitress can remember our order! The sticky ribs are amazing and so are the crispy spring rolls! The prawn crackers are always so fresh and tasty. For mains we go for the... More

What can I say? I don't get the chance to try Thai normally as my wife thinks it's all too spicey A mate and I fell into this charming place by accident on a rainy Manchester evening First course a very spicey soup for two. Mussels, prawns, squid and scallops in a hot, fragrant broth. Eye-watering at times but delightful... More

Visited on Monday evening with my sister. Restaurant is up some stairs in shared premises - doesn't look like much but it's a nice little place. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful although service was a little slow at times, i.e. clearing the table/bringing the bill. Food was very tasty - we had a mixed starter to share (the... More

We had dinner in this restaurant with our son who lives in Manchester and rates the place highly. We were not disappointed. There was a good range of Thai food including vegetarian dishes.
