About the restaurant
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.
