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.

Service was a little slow but when we ordered the food from the massive menu it came out quickly. The menu is huge!!!!

Food was nice. Don’t recommend the soft shell crab but do recommend the chilli be ginger pork. That’s was delicious

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.

Nice Thai food in Manchester. It was busy and atmosphere was great. Staff was good and food was tasty. It is not exactly good price and it is not too expensive neither but the food is lovely. This is a Thai restaurant with standard.

Anniversary 9.00pm meal so booked a table and after arriving was led to a reserved window table as requested.

Ordered a banquet and the food was as delicious as ever - we tend to call here for special occasions.

The only problem we have is negotiating Manchester’s one way systems and road closures which both my Garmin and Google navigation were unaware of - a nightmare.
