Lovely food. One meal took quite a long time to appear and my friends were half way through theirs but they did apologise.

Always fantastic food and great service at Try Thai and this time no exception. The happy hour menu is brilliant value and includes a good selection - you can mix and match at your table too and add extra items from the A La Carte. Highly recommended

Went with my girlfriend who is Thai and the staff immediately started speaking to her in Thai so straight away we were happy that it was real. The food was amazing and very authentic. My girlfriend received everything she ordered exactly how she would in her own country. The only downside was it was much more expensive than In Thailand which is only to be expected.

Arrived a little early, but the staff were happy to accomodate this. Got to my table and was swiftly asked if i'd like a drink, needless to say i got my drink shortly after.
My friends were rather sporadic at turning up. But the staff were happy to wait for the remaining stragglers. This did mean we had a few people squeesed onto the same table, but they did ask if this was ok. Being friends, we were more than happy to all bunch up at the same table and it made the experience that little bit more fun!

The food was phenomenal! I decided to be adventurous and try a mushroom based meal, i'm not the biggest fan of em. But i thoroughly enjoyed the dish, practically licked the plate clean! All my mates really enjoyed their meals. With one stating it was better than the Thai resteraunt she'd originally suggested.

All in all:
Fab staff!
Great food.
Great service.
Good pricing and portion size!

Would recommend and will certainly be visiting again!

Food was disappointing. Manager was excellent and took an item off the bill but a starter and the main both disappointed. I would prefer good food rather than a reduced bill.

I've lost count how many times I've eaten here over the years. One constant throughout that time is the reassuringly high quality of food. That, and the authenticity of the flavours.

It was not my first time to this restaurant. Previously I have enjoyed the whole experience thoroughly. This time however it felt rushed and the experience was not worth the cost. We were not given a drinks menu, the food was not great and the waitress cleared our table and handed us some wipes after our starter and thought that we had finished our whole meal and was ready for us to leave. When our main was brought we were left for around five minutes without knives and forks despite asking for them. I doubt I will return.

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!
