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.
I cannot believe that we have lived here for so long and not been to this superb restaurant before this visit on Saturday. It was delightful, excellent food and superb service, 5 star. We will definitely be back again and again. Thank you everyone
First class experience. Food superb, staff friendly and efficient. Lovely atmosphere. Wide choice of menu and reasonably priced. Will certainly go again and would recommend to others.
This great Thai restaurant always delivers. Fantastic food and service as usual. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. A great night out with family and friends.
