Food was fantastic, delicious and great value for money. My only concern was no ventilation in enclosed environment and tables close together.

Nice buzzing atmosphere.
A few smiles from the waiters wouldn’t
go amiss .
Messy bar area needs attention , I don’t want to look at a bar of cleared dirty glasses while I’m dining .
Overall though , a good meal .

Biggest mistake booking this for our anniversary. Very noisy and it was very full. Nothing appealing or nice about the place inside
Just a basic restaurant
My husband had to ask for service as we needed a drink and we had been seated for over 15 minutes

I have been a long standing client of Try Thai since I found this hidden gem - it really is excellent value for money and the food is amazing. I love this place as a foodie and am loath to share it but if it brings them more custom then I am happy to support this excellent restaurant.

The service was really slow. We had to ask someone to come and take our order.

Noticed the bar area was full of dirty glasses that were collected from tables but not washed.

Food was great though.

Needs better service especially that there is an automatic 10% charge added to the bill.

In the heart of China Town, the place was easy to find and was pleasingly busy at 1845 on a Thursday Night. The menu is comprehensive but there were a lot of dishes marked as not available. The service was efficient rather than friendly and the food was delicious and well cooked with generous portions.

First time here out of all the restaurants we chose TRY THAI we wasn't disappointed. Food was very good ,service was polite and friendly, reasonable prices.
Parking could be a problem so got a taxi, stairs was plentiful but I'm sure their was a small elevator for wheelchair access, ,
Some of the one person sides and deserts would definitely do two people, , beware the service charge of ten percent on to your bill at the end.
All in all a really enjoyable visit with pleasant surroundings,, worth booking a table if possible as it did get busy.

It was a family dinner due to one’s birthday. The best Thai restaurant in Manchester. Everything was great. Delicious food and excellent service. A “happy birthday” song played with a piece of birthday cake was a surprise 😀 Thank you “Try Thai” Team!

Lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff. We had the happy hour 2 course menu. The food was very nice, perhaps a little too oily on some dishes. The satay chicken wasn't quite what I expected, a little dry. But over all a nice experience and we would recommend and come back.
