More about Phetpailin, Manchester

Phetpailin opens its restaurant’s doors from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch noon until 3pm, dinner from 6pm until the generous hour of 11pm, and for dinner on Mondays and Sundays from 6pm until 11pm. This is a blessing for workers in Manchester’s city centre looking for lunch, curious foodies in and around Chinatown looking for something other than, well, Chinese food, and for Southeast Asian and Thai cuisine lovers in general, for whom the set menus (including a vegetarian set) for a minimum of two people are a great introduction.

The most lavish of these Phetpailin’s set menus showcases the Southeast Asian and Thai powerhouse cookery at work in the restaurant’s George Street kitchen, offering the house’s mixed starter platter followed by tamarind duck, prawn green curry, Thai-style grilled sea bass, stir-fried beef with chilli and basil and plenty of fragrant steamed jasmine rice. Other wise, the a la carte menu at this city centre restaurant on the fringes of Chinatown is a joy to explore.

Excellent food, great service. Really like this place. Be aware you need to bring your own alcohol. Sainsbury's is very handy across the road. Really recommend.

This is the second time i've been to Phetpailin. It's well worth a visit. The restaurant is small and off a side road in China Town and I would not have known about it if not for the birthday meal I attended one Saturday a few months ago. It was busy then and there were 15 of us! We all really enjoyed the evening and couldn't fault the food and the service. This time I went with a few girls from work on a week night, the place was pretty quiet but not in a bad way, it was cosy and once again the food was amazing. Also it's a bring your own which makes it a cheap meal (average main is around £9 plus your side. I went for a duck curry and one of my friends had a wonderful seabass dish that looked very impressive. Will certainly be back there in the future.

We enjoyed Phetpailin very much. We all thought portion size was just fine. The Plain Noodles with spring onions were excellent as a side dish - so tasty. Everything was good and we would def go again. Bill was approx. £58 for 4 persons - starters and a main course with sides each. Taking your own booze obviously brings the price down, but rest assured the food is very good. Staff were friendly and cheerful. Non alcoholic cocktails looked good but we didn't have any.

Lovely food, didn't realise you needed to bring your own drinks but lessons learned. Tip for you, go on a weekday not a Friday as there were lots of very loud after work people in there making it difficult to hear each other. However the food is great and worth the visit

No corkage, which is a bonus. Still, menu is fairly dear and portion size conservative. Extra dishes not ordered were added to bill. Staff very friendly and helpful.
