Living in North Wales for the last six years after living in Vancouver, BC Canada I MISS THAI food so much. I cook Thai a lot at home, but it was such a treat to go and have really great food. The chicken satay were moist, and the green curry chicken was really tasty. My friend had the tom yum guy soup and a basil stir fry which were also good. We stayed for nearly two hours and never felt rushed. The service was perfect and the restaurant is so clean. I will always make a point to go back when I am in Manchester.

It’s a lively little restaurant, very unassuming from the outside but a lovely ‘authentic’ feel inside. Staff were great. The is good and tasty and you get a lot of it, but it won’t blow your mind but much much better than other Thai restaurants in Manchester (and I’ve eaten at many)

Lovely little Thai restaurant in Chinatown Manchester, ( I think it had the possibility to open another floor).
I been here several times now and it’s always busy ( I would recommend pre-booking)
Food was plentiful and tasty.
Not overly priced,
Only one very small comment that the tempura batter was not the the light flutter batter you’d expected, more a heavy, but this did not take anything away from the tasty meal.

It was disappointing comparing to my last visit back in August.
1/3 of the items on the menu are not available.

Lovely cosy atmosphere and very attentive staff who helped explain parta of the menu to help choose. Excellent choice on the menu. Good was clearly freshly prepared and very flavoursome. And provided surprise cake for a birthday treat, at the request of no singing.

Will definitely go back.

It’s a great place for a birthday or anniversary for example!

The food here is always amazing and is the reason we go back time and time again. Always a good atmosphere and the staff are extremely attentive and helpful. The cocktails are freshly made and definitely hit the spot.

Worth a try and makes for a fabulous evening celebration.

We attempted to dine early (4:00 pm) but one of our party was late, the staff were very understanding of this. WE ate from the early diner menu, which offered a great choice at a fixed price for 2 or 3 courses. We started off intending to have two courses but were tempted by the Banana Fritters, which were delicious. By the time we left which was about 6:30 pm, it was very busy, which was great to see. So recommend booking. Overall great value, we had a great time and are planning on going again!

Went for the early evening deal (which is on til 18:30 so arrived circa 18:00) - it was quite quiet at this time which was fine but service was a bit slow considering they weren’t that busy. The Early evening special is good value and a decent choice of starters and mains. Both courses were excellent. Would recommend

Went for Lunch set menu with work colleagues. It felt as it was a bit understaffed and service was quite delayed. The food was ok but maybe as it was the set menu it wasn’t as amazing as it has been at dinner seating

Usually this restaurant is excellent, disappointed this time. Crispy pork dishes were incinerated and almost inedible. Other dishes were good but not up to their usual standard.

Another trip to Thai Try and another great experience. Must have visited 30-40 plus times and can honestly say never had a bad experience. Well worth the visit.

Lovely food, can never fault it, a bit slow sometimes with service, waited for drinks for around 15 minutes to order and then another 10-15 minutes to bring them over
Apart from that though thoroughly enjoyed and will always return for the food and ambience alone.

Amazing food! We ordered a out 9 starters between 3 people and all shared to get the most out of the experience and every dish was insanely tasty! The staff were lovely too, and very welcoming. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant itself was splendid - really loved it and can't wait to visit again soon!

So bad! Ribs had no meat on them and burnt, chicken wings burnt, crispy bean curds dry and tasteless, didn’t have main course because of how bad the starters were. Staff not bothered about how bad the food was, couldn’t wait to get take full payment. So so so bad
