This was a third visit, taking advantage of the happy 'hour'. Which, naturally enough, runs from 4 to 7pm.
Like many restaurants in Chinatown, the main eating area is accessed by stairs, so may be a challenge for those with restricted mobility. We were again greeted promptly as we entered, and service throughout was efficient and friendly. The place began to fill up at 6pm.
I follow the maxim "never eat anywhere that has pictures of meals on the menu". Rather disappointingly, Try Thai tries to get around this by having a tacky slide display on a wall-mounted TV screen. Switch it off, folks - no one's going to order on the strength of those images.
But that's the negatives over with. Food is served on oblong plates and eaten off triangular plates. Rice in covered round pots, so a great venue for geometry students... Cutlery is automatically provided, with chopsticks available on request. From the promotional menu - two courses for £12.95 - there were eight starters (two vegetarian), and eight main styles with a choice of meat or vegetarian. I particularly enjoy the stir fry with chilli and sweet basil.
Portions are very generous; I've not yet managed to eat all the rice. There are drinks promotions in the happy hour, supplemented by specials (eg half price cocktails/mocktails on Wednesdays). Good value.
