By far my favourite restaurant in Manchester. The food is authentic & a treat for the tastebuds whilst being great value for money. The staff are attentive & friendly. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been here & it’s always my first pick whenever friends or family are visiting. My most recent visit was for for my partner’s birthday & I have to say it was superb. Highly recommend one of the banquets if you like to try a little bit of everything. The portions are generous & I guarantee you’ll leave satisfied!

Taste and presentation of the food was amazing! There's so much to choose from (and they're all delicious) that you end up over ordering. Not to mention that the portions were large!

Great food and good service. The restaurant was packed which is always a good sign. Little wait for our table but that’s understandable given how busy it was.

Date night with my husband. We had the Rose set meal was very, very good. Lots of staff ensures really great service. Don’t be put off by walking up the stairs. We went up the first flight of stairs and it was empty. Then we sent up a further flight of stairs where there was lots of relief to see other diners. The set meal we chose was on the pricier side. The wine for a bottle was priced reasonably.

We were in Manchester for a couple of days for work purposes and wanted somewhere to eat and found this. Booked on line, turned up and were greeted by a pleasant young man, asked to take a seat, then after a few moments were sent upstairs to our table. It was ver busy but the staff were very attentive with taking our orders, serving our food and explaining the dishes. We chose a set menu for two and it was delicious, piping hot and our waiter explained each dish to us. We were very happy and full and hope to return on another visit.

I've been to Try Thai a few times when working in Manchester and it never fails to please! This time my wife joined me and we got to enjoy it together.

Let's bear in mind it is an excellent thai restaurant but it is not, nor does it pretend to be, a fine-dining place.

Service is great, prompt, prices excellent value, it's buzzy, friendly and above all the food is fantastic. Fresh ingredients, well balanced flavours with spicy dishes delivering warmth without overdoing it, and all without overly heavy sauces you can sometimes get in thai or Chinese.

My only comment, and it is very minor, is service is typically efficient, effective and therefore sometimes just a touch brisk. What was good, was that they asked if we wanted a break between courses. This is a busy, buzzy restaurant and a great place to meet people, enjoy a good meal that will leave nobody hungry and everyone happy!

Been in Try Thai many times and everything I've tried is absolutely excellent. Only negative point is that it seems very difficult to adjust the level of spiciness to mild even when they say that they can do it. If you don't want your food to be too spicy, just follow the "chillies" on the menu

Once you Try Thai, you'll want to try it again and again. The food is excellent and very well priced, staff courteous and attentive. The ambiance lovely. Complimentary starter of delicious pickled vegetables, followed by vegetarian Yellow Thai curry, nicely spicy with the unmissable sticky Thai rice. Veg spring rolls and plum dipping sauce perfect. Leave room, you'll want to order extra. Free meter parking after 8. Try Thai fab cuisine.

Try Thai was a success. I planned a nice meal for my coworkers to celebrate a birthday. We ordered 3 food banquets which at first glance seemed like too much food but between all of us, we left the plates clean. The service was great. All understanding and attentive to our one person with a nut allergy. The drinks were very good most importantly everyone left completely satisfied. Thanks so much for a great dinner service!

Our visit here was a pre-Theatre Booking. We had 6 items from the ‘nibbles’ menu between 2 of us, which was more than enough if you have a small appetite and they were certainly value for money, as well as the drinks we had. The food was served quickly, it was very hot and it was lovely, well worth the visit.
