The food at Rak Chang never disappoints. Sometimes service is a little slow however that does not over rule the quality of the food. It is extremely good quality- especially the Thai Green Curry. It is always creamy and the prawn toast is equally crispy and fresh. The food is affordable also, with a great lunch deal during the week!

Why do they need to make it smell like an air freshener factory has exploded? Makes the dining experience very disappointing, like eating your dinner in a somewhat superior toilet block. Food actually rather good, though fish dish slightly disappointing. Overall Manolys and Tudor Thai in Leigh preferred, though maybe on a busier evening the air freshener stench might be dissipated and eating here might then be more enjoyable. Bottom line, I can't recommend...

Three amigos (atually brothers-in-law) looking to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of one. We went Thai...and glad we did. After a swift beer in a local pub we made our way to Rak Chang. The table was booked for 7.00pm and there was plenty of space. We were the first ones in for the evening. The service was very attentive..but then we didn't have any competition. After selecting and ordering drinks we quickly opted for a set menu C as it gathered most of our favourites...it was a good choice.

The food was REALLY excellent, flavoursome but nothing too hot. There was plenty of it and we all enjoyed the variety the option C set menu gave us. From the crispy duck starter, we then enjoyed steamed Red Snapper, Massaman Curry, delicious grilled lamb and mixed seafood...all accompanied by their respective delicious sauces and a large bowl of egg fried rice.

The restaurant began to fill, but our service was as good and attentive. With the food consumed we were offered the ice cream sweet. I happend to cheekily mention a double of chocolate and vanilla to the surprise of the waitress. A few minutes later my B-i-L's ice creams arrived...single scoops with cream...mine...two scoops, as requested...if you don't ask.....

With a nice espresso to finish and lifts home it was an overall success. I would have no difficulty in recommending Rak Chang...nice environment, friendly service and good food...what's not to like? Have a great Grand Canyon wedding Jay & Roxanne!

Always excellent food and not expensive.
Lovely waitress. They do a set lunch menu during lunch service and is beautiful. This is one of my favourite places to eat. I would definitely recommend people to go.
