Get to Try Thai

We revisit Try Thai to find it is still excellent

''mmmm that's really good''.

Nestled in the heart of Manchester's famous Chinatown, Try Thai has rightly built a name for itself as a premier Thai restaurant,in a city where there are several.

The second floor restaurant offers a wide range of well known thai dishes with Lunchtime & Happy Hour Menus,aswell as Banquets.

They give us the same table each time we go, normally once every few months,but you dont have to be a regular to be warmly greeted and well looked after.

I have been going there for a few years and honestly, the food just keeps getting better. The staff are so funny, very friendly, and regardless of whether it is a business dinner, dinner with friends or my dearest other half, the meal is always intimate, high quality and the amount of "mmmm that's really good" comments that go round the table tell the whole story.

I generally over eat there because the food is so addictive, and it is one of the few places in chinatown where I can get a halal meal. I love it so much.

We decided on this occasion to share a starter with the Combination platter of Thai fish cake, garlic spare rib, satay chicken, crispy coriander beef.Plenty arrived for us both to get our evening started.

Then for the mains,with the much lauded Spicy Green Papaya Salad With Soft-Shell Crab for me and the Thai Green curry with Chicken and fried rice for my partner.Not a scrap left over on either plate paid the ultimate compliment to the kitchen.

A shared bottle of chilled Pinot Grigio was our tipple,although the venue boats a good range of wines,beers,cocktails and speciality Thai drinks too.

The restaurant is fairly traditional in its decor and style and caters equally well for tables of 2 as it does for larger group tables.Its frequently busy so pre-booking is always recommended.

The Canal Street Card is accepted here with savings of 20% off the food bill(main menu) Mon -Thurs.

Try Thai is also very convenient for another famous part of the city.The Gay Village.Piccadilly Gardens is also a short walk,with its tram hub enabling the visitor to move effortlessly around the city centre and beyond.

Minutes too from Market St,The Arndale and The Royal Exchange make this a must if you are a fan of wonderful Thai food.
