Try Thai is packed every night of the week, and with lots of Chinese / Thai diners, which I believe confirms it's authenticity of cuisine. The menu is varied and always cooked / presented well. I have always found the service helpful and extremely polite / efficient. I prefer the upstairs restaurant which does get quite noisy, but I like... More

I only reviewed this restaurant 5 weeks ago and my review was very complementary. Therefore, it's very disappointing that this review is less so. We called in midweek and we were directed to a table far in a corner close by a service door. As the restaurant was near empty I asked for a different table. The new table was... More

Found this place though TripAdvisor. Absolutely fantastic food was great as was the atmosphere. Tells you something about a place when you go to a Thai restaurant and a large thai family are eating there. Definitely planning a next visit x

Unable to book a table on line for Sat 03/12 so contacted on phone only to leave a voicemail, took 3 days to get back to me, but sure enough we got a table. Great food and service, however let down by very noisy parties being spread around instead of being in one place giving other diners the chance to... More

Once we had climbed the three flights of stairs to enter this highly rated Thai restaurant the decor and general vibe of the place is good. Service is from authentic Thai staff although a bit sporadic. Wide range of drinks on offer and the menu is well laid out. Food was some of the best we've ever tasted and we... More

We chose this restaurant on a visit to Manchester based on the excellent reviews. The place was buzzing, the atmosphere good and the staff friendly. However, the food was a great disappointment. Maybe our expectations were too high, or maybe we made the wrong choices from the menu but the food tasted overly sweet to the extent that the individual... More

Unfortunately we didn't make our reservation on Friday 25th due to the tragic fire and the sad loss of 2 lives as a result. We were notified by phone that Try Thai wouldn't be open by a member of staff in the afternoon, so thanks for that. We will book again on our next visit.
