Discover the best places in Manchester to enjoy Thai food

No matter what your favourite cuisines are, our city has some world-class restaurants. And with a range covering everything from classic Italians to modern British, there really is something to suit all tastes, quite literally.

Manchester's Chinatown, the third largest in Europe, is home to numerous fine restaurants serving both Chinese and Thai food, but you don't have to stay in the city centre to get excellent Thai cuisine - you could even try making your own.

3 out of 5 stars

There are plenty of Thai and Malaysian restaurants to choose from in Manchester, some headed up by celebrity chefs (Ning), others located in swanky million pound buildings (Vermillion) or high profile locations like King Street (Chaophraya). One that has none of those things but consistently delivers good food is straight up, authentic Thai restaurant Phetpailin.

The Village Inn

Authentic Thai food with a pint at The Village Inn, in Flixton. The pub's not bad at all but quite a few people only head here for the Thai food, impressively put together by a capable kitchen. It's inexpensive, too.


Bangkok Orchid

A very decent Thai restaurant on London Road, the authentic food and impressive vegetarian selection have been doing a great job of attracting Hazel Grove's food fans in their droves. Service is sweet.

Siam Smiles


An authentic Thai supermarket and café on George Street, in the heart of Chinatown. The aesthetic is pretty basic but the wealth of happy customers hit here solely for the produce and food - both widely heralded as some of the best outside of Thailand. Make sure you go for the laab moo. It's pretty special.
