Great service and amazing food....the 3 course special at£10.95 was good value for money..had a good choice..... the staff knew it was my birthday and surprised me with a ice cream sundae with a lit candle and sang happy birthday..a lovely touch...only criticism was a 10% service charge added to the bill... would have left a tip regardless... Will definitely visit again

Nothing beats this restaurant in the whole of Manchester for us.
Clean, fresh, food was delicious, staff very welcoming and friendly and can’t do more for you. Even gave me a birthday cheesecake and sang me happy birthday and I didn’t know they were going to do that! Absolutely best Thai food we have tasted- and I’ve been to Thailand. Amazing.

Visited this restaurant several times & always been impressed with everything. The service was disappointing, staff were inattentive on this occasion? Food was great.

Me and my family had a fantastic evening at Try Thai. The food was incredible and felt authentic. We loved every dish. The portions are quite big. The service and presentation was amazing! Everything was very clean and well organised. We had incredible evening and loved the fact its family run! Just wish they would open up a branch in London so we don't have to travel as far! We absolutely will be coming back and bringing friends/family.

A good job we had booked as it had a sign saying no walk ins. A nice choice of food and my duck was good but the other meal even though it was marked as normal heat had chilli's in and was too hot. Very poor selection of white wine as most was sold out. I would go back but double check on the ingredients.

Amazing food, very authentic.
The satay chicken skewers are to die for and the chicken pad Thai was very tasty with just enough chilli heat.
Will definitely be back again

Food was great but overpriced for the venue, a lot of stairs to climb for my husband and if you have young children in a pram.
The service was good but felt a little rushed ? Maybe time of year ?

We were a party of six going to enjoy a night out. The food at Try Thai was excellent. The service brilliant and the atmosphere was great. Cannot fault the food, service or the enjoyment we got from eating at Try Thai. Will certainly go to Try Thai again when I am in Manchester.

When I think of Thai food, Try Thai is the first place that comes to my mind. Since lock down has lifted I must say the food quality has dropped down a little as well as the service. It seems as though they don't have enough staff on per shift but the staff that are working do try very work hard. No matter what the value is always great. Will continue to visit Try Thai when we are in Manhchester as I think it's the best Thai restaurant by far.

Food was brilliant and we had a lovely evening. Only reason for giving it 4 stars was because our service was very slow. We had to call for service many times and we just weren't being seen to! It took a long time for someone to even come and take our order after asking 3 times it was finally taken.
The food on the other hand arrived really quickly and everything tasted amazing.
Will definitely be returning - but please guys - check on each table regularly!

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.

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.
