We stopped for an evening meal at this quaint thai restaurant in Knutsford en route to the Lake District, looking for something more than the usual service stop meals.

Mae Gaew was a splendid surprise serving delicious thai dishes with good service just 10mins from the M6. Furthermore the chicken was halal.

Would definitely visit again if passing by.

Eat here quite often and get takeaways as well - generally as one other reviewer said a "nice" place to eat. It's not pretentious and the staff are friendly and helpful. I think it would take only a little bit of attention to detail to lift the bar to a slightly higher "very good". So to summarise - I reckon if you fancy a thai meal in a reasonably nice place - would recommend :-) If you're looking for something exceptional then perhaps try elsewhere?

I was disappointed ,it looked interesting from the outside..I had Thai style spare ribs which were tasteless and very dry and expensive for what they were. Staff were quite pleasant .

Like another recent reviewer, we were in the corridor between the front and back of the restaurant. It was fine (and didn't even notice the squeaky floorboards after a while.) Service was prompt and quite charming. A reasonable selection of wines by the glass and all at keen prices.
My starter of prawn toast was distinctly average, but my wife enjoyed her green salad. Our son had chicken satay which he said was tasty.
The mains of Duck with pancakes, a duck curry and a chicken curry were varying degrees of good to very good, and so a good meal was enjoyed by all. Happy to recommend this Thai restaurant to couples and families alike. There are lots of good eating places in the town and this deserves to be counted as one of them.
