Thai Restaurants

Manchester boasts many first class Thai restaurants
– many are award-winning restaurants, and some even offer on-site workshops
in Thai cookery. Thai cuisine emphasises lightly prepared dishes with
strong aromatic features, and can often be very spicy. Traditional Thai
food at its best balances four basic taste senses in every meal – sour,
sweet, salty and bitter.
