I researched some thai food places in manchester and decided to walk out from my humble travelodge to dine alone prior to a business day. So glad I did. For a bargain under £10 I had the tastiest thai food. A BYO (build your own) large bowl with a good selection to choose from was quickly served up. Beef massaman... More

This place was recommended by a friend. It's a hidden treasure! I came for breakfast, which was absolutely tasty, really well presented and a good size. I don't drink tea or coffee and the staff were really happy to sort out lemon in hot water as my drink. The cake is also delicious. I wondered whether it might be a... More

Four of us came here for a 'brunch' but me & my girlfriend had never been here before, so wasn't really sure what to expect. Three of us went for the full english option from the menu and it was very good for the money. We had to wait a little while for it to arrive to the table, but... More

Given the reviews, we couldn't have been more disappointed. We walked in and nobody acknowledged us at all. The girl with pink hair and the girl with blonde hair carried on chatting in their own world. We then sat there like lemons having no idea how to order or whether we were supposed to go up to order as their... More

Lovely breakfast just across the road from my hotel. Choice of tasty treats. Went for the bacon & avocado tower. Delicious! Coffee was nice too. Strong & flavoursome!

Stayed at the nearby Ibis hotel and we were told this was the only place nearby for food, however we were pleased we tried it. The staff were friendly, the restaurant seemed clean. The menu is small but still gives a good variety, we did the Thai bowl where you pick your own ingredients to make up your meal. All... More

Popped in on our way home last night for a drink and couldn't resist booking in to eat. Shrimp rice with pork. Duck in tamarind as a small bowl deal. Both with lots of really fresh additions. Great value. Good vibe.

Food exceptional as always. The service prompted another 5 star review for Saturday night. Both staff ran off their feet with smiles on their faces. The kitchen got all 7 meals out in great time considering the place was packed. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or wine always a pleasure. Cannot wait for long summer boozey days at vivid

I live nearby and I simply love this place. It really is a combination of everything. The breakfasts are delicious, but they are also consistent. The Thai food is authentic, delicious and the menu is fun. The service is extremely friendly, quick, helpful, I could go on as I love the staff in there. It is a little oasis in... More
