Thai Restaurants in Manchester
1. Tampopo Pan-Asian restaurant in Manchester 16 Albert Sq - M2
This pan-Asian pleases the crowd with everything from Japanese ramen and Singaporean laksa to Thai red curry and Balinese pork belly. The Albert Square original has spawned five other sites across the city.
2. Rosa's Thai Cafe Thai restaurant in Manchester The Old Courthouse, 184 Deansgate - M3
The “lovely Thai food” at these reliable cafés is “impressively authentic given that they are a chain” – “excellent value” and “fast”, if occasionally let down by “iffy service”. Founded in 2008 by Saiphin and Alex Moore, who inherited the name of their first East End site, the group has 18 branches in London and expanded to Liverpool, Manchester, Reading (delivery only) and Leeds following the sale of a majority stake to US investors. The couple also have two spin-offs, Lao Café in Covent Garden and the new Chinese noodle bar Hoh Sek in St Katharine Docks.
3. Thaikhun Thai restaurant in Manchester Unit 17, 3 Hardmen St - M3
2018 Review: This Spinningfields branch of a 10-strong national Thai chain is the most commented-on in the group, and wins consistent praise for its “buzzing” style and also (mostly) too for its “fantastic” street food dishes.
5. Try Thai Thai restaurant in Manchester 52-54 Faulkner St - M1
2019 Review: This Chinatown joint was once a “great little secret” but, post-expansion (adding a Thai-style canopy bar and lavish velvet curtains), it now “gets very busy”, so “book way in advance”; the lunch and early evening deals are “excellent value, but don’t showcase the best of their food”.
6. District Thai restaurant in Manchester 60 Oldham Street - M4
"New Wave Thai" in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, featuring, according to their website, "progressive barbecue cookery and liquid intelligence inspired by a future Bangkok". Two tasting menus are the only available options.
