Updated: 3 September 2017
Manchester is filled with great restaurants, catering to a vast variety of different cuisines from Greek to Indian. If it’s Thai food that tantalises your taste buds then you’re in luck, as the city brags an array of options ranging from the fancy to the inexpensive. Here are six of the best Thai restaurants you’ve got to try in Manchester.

Try Thai

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Tucked away in China Town, Try Thai is one of the most popular Thai restaurants in the city centre. Featuring an authentic menu, canapé bar and set menu options, you’ll be hard pressed to find fault with their deliciously spiced food. All of the chefs were trained in Thailand, which shows in both their cooking skills and the range of unusual dishes on offer.

Chaophraya

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Another popular city centre restaurant, Chaophraya features dishes from all around Thailand, inspired by owner Kim Kaewraitkhot’s childhood moving around the country. Seafood dishes are the speciality with the Thai Fisherman’s Soup being a firm favourite of regulars to the restaurant. We recommend booking in advance at weekends, as the restaurant’s prime location just off King Street means that it gets busy.

Crazy Wendy’s

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

If you’re looking for entertainment with your Thai food, it doesn’t come crazier than at West Didsbury institution Crazy Wendy’s. A popular haunt for hen dos, the food is typical of what you’ll find in most Thai restaurants (expect red, yellow and green curries) but the performance is what really makes this place special. Wendy herself is likely to be found dancing on the tables singing along to her favourite songs and kick-starting the party.

Vivid Lounge

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located in the hip Ancoat’s neighbourhood, Vivid Lounge is gaining a reputation as one of the hottest spots in the city. Bizarrely, the restaurant serves English cuisine up until midday, when it transforms into a relaxed Thai restaurant in the evening – serving simple, affordable and delicious cuisine. Try their DIY Thai bowls to choose your own base, curry and toppings for a quick and tasty lunch.

Can't go wrong with a bit of Thai food at @vividloungeuk in Ancoats, Manchester!

Siam Smiles

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Based in a Thai supermarket in the middle of China Town, this small yet awesome eatery earns a place on this list thanks to its authentic flavours and incredibly affordable, delicious cuisine. Choose from a variety of small plates and main courses but be warned – this is probably the spiciest Thai food in the whole of Manchester!

Thaikhun

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Head to Spinningfields to try something a little different at Thaikhun. Rather than concentrating on curries, they take inspiration from Thailand’s street vendors and offer street food and sharing platters in a laid back environment. Visit with a few friends and order everything on the menu to share between you all for a true taste of Thai cuisine.
