In a strange city, looking for an easy lunch we came across Phetpailin by chance. We were offered A la Carte but unusually I went for the very cheaply priced set lunch menu as it had dishes on I had not heard of before I could try as well as usual dishes. Starter & main came at almost same time... More

Definitely worth a visit if you like Thai food! Very busy at weekends. Good food in China Town... Entry is via a set of stairs so not wheelchair friendly.

We had a lovely meal in a what I would call a scruffy restaurant. Old and dated decor and furniture but the food was good. Not 100% traditional but they tried with the ingredients available. BYOB so the food has to be good to compete in the area.

The food at this restaurant isn't anything like it used to be. The servers are horrible & rude. The food is poor. When I was recently there I felt like I was a bother to the waitress & waitresses. It took forever just to be waited on & to have some water. Two of us ordered 2 meals each so... More

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!
