    I went here a long time ago before lockdown and I am so pleased that it has survived! The early bird menu had a good range of options. Was very good value and arrived hot to the table. We were on a time constraint because we were going to the Palace Theatre for our birthday treat, and the staff made sure we were served in a timely manner. Wouldn't hesitate to go again. The air conditioning was very good as it was a really hot day. Can't wait to go back 👍

    Service was a little lacking, usually it is spot on, also completely wrong starters were brought out, they said they had changed how they were presented but it became apparent that they were wrong, I ordered beef and received PORK, dad ordered fish and received chicken, not great when he only eats fish and I don’t eat pork. Main course was delicious and correct however, staff need to listen better to orders.

    I travel about 30+ miles to come to try Thai and always enjoy my food. The food is genuinely Thai,the ingredients in the meals are genuine and Thai cuisine is very flavoursome. My wife and I have been coming here since it opened many years ago, and we will be returning

    We arrived 10 minutes late due to incident on m62. This was our first visit since the kitchen update. It was obvious that the restaurant had been redecorated also which was good. The food was good and was still at a really good level of taste and presentation. We will be back

    Despite having booked the resturant via their website through opentable and having confirmation that the booking was confirmed - when we went to the resturant to dine the restaurant was actually closed. I tried to get in tough with the resturant to let them know that there would be a lot of disappointed customers who had booked online and they were not open but had nil response. according to your booking system they were open from the 1st of July but when we got to the restaurant they were closed until the 11th July. Very disappointing that their lack of communication with yourselves meant that had wated my trip to the restaurant. Having been a very regular customer for the past 8 years Im not sure if I will return to the resturant.

    Booked a table for 1230 on Monday 27th June through open table. Got an email reminder the day before to confirm I was still going. Turned up at the restaurant to find out they had been closed since early June and didn’t reopen until early July. Appalled that Open Table allowed us to book a table in a closed restaurant!!

    Walked out after 40 minutes, ignored whilst staff served diners who came in after us. Wasted £20 on a taxi to ensure we arrived on time, we and friends and family have eaten there a lot before, but never again. Seated, given menus and then forgotten and only ten covers in, so hardly exceptionally busy

    I was quite disappointed with my meal, I have the same main every time I come, stir fried chilli paste and sweet basil with vegetables and it’s normally delicious. On this occasion it was bitter and the overriding taste was chilli and instead of a nice light sauce it was quite gloopy so I only ate about 20% off it

    Best Thai restaurant we have ever eaten in and that’s the reason we visit it so often. Love the early bird menu cause it has all the favourite dishes on. Such a large choice on normal menu too. If I lived in Manchester City centre I’d eat here every day 😋
