    Lovely meal, had the mixed starter for 2, the papaya salad took me back to Thailand!! The pad Thai was lovely too, had the mixed dessert of mango sticky rice and pandan pancake. Wasn't keen on the pancake but the pandan custard tasted just right!! Staff were attentive and the setting was perfect. Would go again... And again!!!

    I have dined at Chaophraya in Manchester many times, enjoyed countless meals and experienced the best of Thai cuisine. However, this last occasion I would describe as simply 'nice'. While the food was ok, I found the whole experience pleasant but missing its usual allure. That said, I would still return and recommend to friends to give Chaophraya a try - and hopefully catch it at its best.

    Enjoyed the food. However the service let it down. We was in a rush to go to a concert and there was staff everywhere but no one attended to us so we had to go to the bar.

    Positives: Good food. I had the lamb curry and my wife had Chicken Pad Thai. Both servings where just enough and tasted well. The waitor was friendly, and the house wine was very good. Negatives We had too wait 25-30 mins for our reservation, which was a bit strange considering there was only two of us, and the place wasnt that packed.

    Excellent meal and a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant. service was a little slow to start but I put that down to many diners arriving at the same time. Service was fine after that
