Good to get a table during these trying times food was slightly under par and there was no draft lager only bottled beer.
Soft shell crab was a revelation,really good.
Staff were great as usual I have already rebooked for next month.
Keep on supporting Try Thai as this is an independent restaurant

Only given the lunch time menu even though the full.menu was asked for. Not response so we chose what was on the lunch menu which wasn't all that great, very mediocre.

Service was shocking, even though the restaurant was not full. Food was below average. Served luke warm, all dishes very watery. Have eaten here previously but will not be returning. Should have just thrown £100 in the street.

The food here is always reliably superb and the lunchtime set menu, which was always great value anyway has been simplified and reduced in price (possibly to attract custom as the restaurant is still quieter than usual), making a visit here a no-brainer.

Covid measures are all in place and during our visit were strictly adhered to with sanitiser at the door, all staff wearing masks throughout and our waiter being attentive while still respecting distancing measures.

Thoroughly recommended.

We booked a table for 8.30pm and as soon as we arrived we were rushed and told to order as the kitchen was closing. If that was the case then I don’t understand why they offered an 8.30pm table. Also as we were eating we were asked if we wanted to order anymore drinks as the bar was also closing. We were rushed into ordering and we just felt rushed. It was not a nice experience

We didn’t enjoy the food found it too salty for our tastes. The hot & sour soup was disappointing as not spicy enough and no prawns in it.

We have been visiting TryThai for a number of years now. We ordered our food after a short wait. Unfortunately, the quality of the dishes that arrived were poor. They're a lot more spicier now and borderline unpalatable.

Also, the waitress who showed us our table lacks manners and communication skills. The restaurant is clearly understaffed and this can be observed by the unpleasant running around of the waitresses.

It's a shame that this restaurant has gone downhill. I don't think we will return after this experience.

The Restaurant was nice and the staff were very friendly but after ordering our first drink it was difficult to attract a member of staff to get another. The food was tasty, plenty of it and good quality. It was enjoyable and good value but I don’t think it was that good I’d rush back, there are other places for me to try but as a one off it was good.

Went on a Monday for lunch . Great welcoming feeling. Had the belly pork massamam curry for my mains. The sauce was great but the pork was hard and dry and the onions undercooked. Apart from that portions size was great. Loved the special drinks and starters. Overall great experience .

The food was average. The restaurant it self was lovely and the staff were very attentive. The cocktails were good and I managed to use their happy hour offer.
Before I make my final decision on this place I would like to revisit.

Our 4th family meal at Try Thai when visiting Manchester. A fairly quiet Sunday evening so not too busy. Staff lovely, service spot in and food authentic and fresh. Fantastic meal thank you.
Stir fry with basil and chilli , red curry with duck, fish cake, pork belly with tamarind. All excellent.
