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.

One of the best places MCR has to offer. Good food (mostly, but not always, Thai-authentic), friendly service, especially in comparison with in-friendly UK service, nice place and reasonable prices. Always a good choice.

In Manchester on my own for work. Was looking for a tasty Thai restaurant near my hotel and found Try Thai. I felt very welcone and the food was so good (soft shell crab starter was amazing and prawn jungle curry cooked to perfection). Absolutely delicious! Will definitely go back

We went for the happy hour menu and I have to say we were blown away by the food. Best Thai red curry I have had in Manchester, the yellow curry was equally as good and the crispy coriander beef was one of the best starters I have had from any restaurant. I have recommended this restaurant to friends and they have come back saying the same things for both the curry and the crispy beef starter. Highly recommend it.

We decided to try Try Thai because we saw on the web that it had very good ratings. The food was beautifully presented and the whole meal was very good. Worth trying. Would go there again.

Dinner with wife and daughters. A bit hidden and looked small from the outside, but once inside it was a very nice place with good atmosphere. Service was well-timed, helpful and friendly. Food was excellent and plentiful. We ordered a set menu for three persons, and it was more than enough for the four of us. We'll be back :-)

Found the staff very rude, service was insanely quick. My starter was taken away from the table whilst I was still eating it and then the main came out in under 3 minutes (timed it coz I could tell it was gonna be quick)
Food was OK, sauces tasted good but the beef was really tough
Terrible night and would not go back....

Travelling to Manchester for a work commitment and one of my friends happened to be in Manchester on the same night so we decided to meet for dinner. I have heard a lot about Try Thai through friends who have been there before and said it was amazing. Thai is my favourite food and I have been to a lot of Thai restaurants before. This didn’t fail to disappoint and will definitely be returning when in Manchester again. Cocktails were good too :)

Ate here during Happy Hour so received 2 beers for the price of one. Enjoyed our starters of Calamari with a sweet chilli dip and spare ribs. I opted for a chicken red curry and my husband had chilli paste and basil belly pork. Both were excellent. We ordered 2 portions of rice but one would hav3 been plenty.

Service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely return next time in Manchester

The food was amazing, the actual seating layout is a bit cramped. Our waiters were friendly but one of our staters was not put through with the order that had to come with our mains after we had to check up on it, and it did come quickly. But as I said the food is amazing.

Absolutely delicious food, unbeatable value for money and excellent service. But NOISY! Not ideal for a quiet conversation, but obviously really good for big, fun groups. I'd go there again, but not for a business dinner!

An unexpected find and very glad we took time to visit despite poor weather. The food was extremely authentic and well prepared. Value was very fair and service was polite and attentive from young ethnic Thai staff. Unfortunately we were just passing through, otherwise I would make this a regular place to visit. Some of the most authentic food I have tasted outside Thailand (previously lived there for 5 years).
One note of caution - this place is REAL Thai food - take note of the chili spice markings on the menu and treat them with respect !!!

We are at Try Thai on New Years Eve. The restaurant was not busy at all. The food and service was ok. Preferred Thaikun which is close by and seems more authentic but that is just my opinion.
