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!

We arrived before 7 pm and we had the early dinner menu: 3 courses for £16.95 plus 2x1 in cocktails! It was a bargain for the quality of the food & service. I will highly recommend this place to anyone.

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.

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.

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 :-)
