fantastic authentic restaurant, I am so pleased that they are re-open and have been a customer for many years. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. The staff are great, personable and they are exceptional value for money. Good sanitation stations and social distancing in place.

Very relaxing atmosphere, lovely background music, cleaned toilets.

Should have had a facility for disabled people because I saw there was a wheelchair customer wanted to eat in your restaurant on my way out but decided not to because there was no lift.

The food was delicious but a little bit salty in my point of view.

All in all, I definitely come back

Shocking and outrageous! All booked in for happy hour. Trip to see our son in Manchester after lockdown. Checked happy hour menu on June 2nd. Arrived for the meal June 3rd. Timings changed. Queried and waitress brought over timings menu with previous timings taped over. They should have honoured our booking but didn’t. The place was heaving due to happy hour! Not happy for us. We left.

Found this place by looking at reviews and we are very happy we did.
The food is delicious!
We often go to Thailand and found the food to be every bit as delicious.
If we lived in Manchester we would be regulars.

Food was warm and tasteful, for vegetarians there is many options for starters and mains. The price for 2 adults roughly £60 which is reasonable.

The staff and the food was lovely. We arrived one hour early and they fitted us in.
They have a wide menu which is great. Staff are very friendly. We will definitely be visiting them again. Loved it.

Food was outstanding, 5 stars doesn't do it justice. All of us left pleased with our respective lunches, but the thai salad and the king prawn pad thai stood out in particular. You could tell the seafood was extremely fresh, maybe from the fishmonger's next door. Staff were extremely friendly, accomodating, and available. The lunchtime menu is very reasonably priced at £11 for a three course meal but I must say again that the food was incredible - really fresh, bright and authentic. My one suggestion would be for the restaurant to provide a tapas-style option so that we could try all the different starters and small plates they have! Overall I honestly can't overstate what a great time we had, I'm so happy to have found this place and will definitely be visiting next time I find myself in Chinatown again.

Food was ok nothing to right home about. One main course out of three was tasty. Started were average. Service never asked how the food was. Was very impersonable and there are much better places to go

AMAZING AS ALWAYS. Booked a table for 6 for our first post lockdown meal and it didn’t disappoint. Friendly and efficient service, delicious, tasty, fresh, spicy and authentic food and all at a reasonable price. My favourite restaurant in Manchester for the past 20 or so years and the best food outside of Thailand (and even better on occasions).

The food at Try Thai is amazing - be warned the Chilli and Holy Basil really is hot. Staff seemed courteous despite it being Lockdown eve and they were extremely busy.

There wasn't a great amount of social distancing, we were sat quite close to other tables. portions were decent and it was sweet of them to bring a complimentary piece of cake out for my brothers birthday.

The one thing that really caused us a problem is that there was a table seated right next to us of 3 young people. They were incredibly loud, to the point we couldn't even hear each other. When we mentioned it to the waitress she said she hadn't noticed and nothing was done about it, it would have been great if they'd asked them to keep it down as they were disturbing not only us but other patrons.

Would go back but hope it would be quieter!
