Had much better experience previously. Standards are slipping. Soft shell crabs aren't fresh and all dishes are just too sweet. Used to be quite authentic Thai.

The set lunch menu is cheap and cheerful. I especially enjoyed the big fat juicy steamed mussels. The halal sirloin steak from the a la cart menu was initially overcooked but was replaced without fuss and was nice when it eventually arrived. The ambiance is ok. The service can be slow. Some of the waiting staff are really well trained and attentive, others not so. Great for casual, value dining experience.

Food is always up to expectations and fast to deliver. Make reservations before heading down as it’s always full during meal hours.

Food was good and service without fault - all going well until we saw the mice running around the room! Was a bit of a shock - waiting staff noticed but carried on with their duties - we gather to keep low key. Shame because everything about the restaurant appears clean and well presented.

Really nice set menu lovely quality of food would definitely go there again. However, for some strange reason they were only offering one type of coffee with the 3 course set menu and couldn't do expresso.

Good food, depends on the dish you ordering. Some are a bit too sweet due to the sauce that come with. Some waiters/waitresses look like they do not wanna do the service. Some are very friendly. When the tables are fully booked, they are not very attentive although they seem to have many staff walking around.

Lovely restaurant so glad we visited after a day out in Manchester, loads to pick from but I was drawn to Try Thai & I made the best decision! On arrival we were greeted & waited in a lovely cocktail bar with a few drinks before we were taken up to our table. It was very busy, but the atmosphere was great, we had a quieter table at the back of the restaurant which was nice & cosy. The menu was easy to understand (for those not familiar with Thai food) & good value for money. Food came out quick (but not too quick!) piping hot fresh cooked & delicious, really generous portions. My only constructive criticism is that I would prefer thin or thick noodles, not keen on ribbon noodles, although they were still tasty, it’s just personal choice. Everything else was fantastic & I will be returning here when I visit in May.
