Plenty of folk from Manchester have made the trip to South East Asia over the years, and one of the things that they have brought back with them is a taste for Thai food. There are four key building blocks that must be balanced to make the unique flavours of Thai cuisine: spice, provided by generous use of chillies; salt, which is taken from fish sauce; sweet, from palm sugar and sour, added through use of citrus fruits like lemon and lime, as well as tamarind. The use of fresh and crunchy vegetables, often lightly cooked in stir-fries, is also very important, and if you head over to Phanthong Thai on Regent Road in Altrincham, you can find a kitchen that is well versed in all of the above. Take the train from central Manchester to Altrincham station and then wander down Railway Street to Phanthong for an authentic example of Thai cuisine – just remember to book a table ahead of time.
Another great meal at a fantastic price, service excellent and staff very pleasant with nothing too much trouble. Definately a venue to try whilst in Altrincham
Wonderful evening with excellent vegetarian food. Very easy parking at rear of the restaurant.We were a party of four and our guests suggested we go again
An excellent meal and very good service provided on the night. The soup was nice for a starter and the selection of curries etc was impressive for the main meal.
Delicious food, excellent service, attractive and elegant ambiance. Phanthong is one of our favourite restaurants for both the quality of the food and service. It is also right next door to a large car park which makes access extremely easy! They have excellent value mid week offer.
Excellent meal and friendly staff, we have visited the restaurant before and will not hesitate in visiting again. This time we will not leave it as long before visiting again as the food is fantastic.
Warmly welcomed into the restaurant and given a good choice of dishes, including set-menu options. Nothing was rushed and we really enjoyed our meal and the restaurant atmosphere. Certainly, we'll look to visit again.
The menu is a little limited but the food and service were very good and we had a very pleasant meal. I would check menu before going but if you see choices that suit it is well worth a visit
Delicious food in an elegant Thai ambiance. The service was attentive, the food beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Despite the restaurant being full the noise was reasonably muted because of the three interconnecting room layout. One of our favourite restaurants!
First visit but certainly not the last. The service and food were excellent. Price represented value for money for what was on offer. Conveniently situated adjacent to a car park, free after 6pm.
The restaurant is clean and bright and the service was good. The food was very good although the portions were small and i am not a big eater, but i finished everything.\my partner could have done with more food.
