“Perfect Phetphallin”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had an absolutely brilliant meal at this restaurant. We were very impressed with the tilapa dish - it was so so tasty. The staff were so polite and it was excellent value for money. This is now our favourite Thai restaurant in Manchester

“Authentic Thai food, the best we've had in a while”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

By far the best Thai food I've had in this part of the world. I'm not overly keen when it comes to Thai but we decided to check this place out on the recommendation of a friend. We arrived at 8.30 on a Friday evening and were quite surprised to find the restaurant almost empty. The service was fantastic and the food even more so, which added to the confusion about the number of empty tables. The prices were very reasonable and the portions were the perfect size and filled us up, not too big like some Asian restaurants. It's also BYO so we grabbed some bottles of beer from the Sainsburys around the corner.
Would highly recommend to any fan of Thai food coming to Manchester in the future.

“Excellent food, great value and friendly service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have now visited Phetpailin a few times, and have yet to be dissatisfied. Every dish I have tried has been excellent quality, and more than good value. I am quite wary about ordering certain Thai dishes in restaurants as they can often turn out to be factory produced frozen things, not the case here. I really appreciate that they value flavour over flair, and of course the BYOB is an extra incentive if dining on a budget. The staff are attentive yet unhurried and friendly. Superb.

“Parents night out”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We have visited Phetpailin several time whilst attending concerts in Manchester. These meals have always been rushed and we have not had time to enjoy the moment!
We visited on Saturday whilst we had a babysitter for the children and made a night of it. We has some of the best Thai food we have ever had. The ribs were the best we had ever tasted. The restaurant allows you to take your own drink so we chose well and took a fairly pricey bottle but without paying the usual restaurant mark up. If visiting China Town in Manchester this place is a must. It isnt exactly plush however the food and the service more than makes up for this.

“Outstanding for taste - Nom Nom Nom”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Visited Sunday evening quite late, and we were the only couple in. Note this place is unlicensed so only serves soft drinks -you are welcome to bring your own alcohol.
Quite pleasant and homely feel inside - no pretentions
We went for Green Chicken Curry, Prawn Pad Thai & Beef with Chilli & Basil - all incredibly tasty.
Plenty of spice, chilli & flavour here - one of the best we have ever tasted
Highly recommended if you like authentic that food.
