Thai Khun Restaurant A Review
Our family recently went to the Thai Restaurant Thai Khun in Manchester for a family meal. Neither me, John nor Sylvia had eaten Thai food before and we were in for a real treat.
Upon arriving at the restaurant we were really impressed with the exterior and interior. At the entrance was a Thai tuktuk and plenty of bikes and interesting features that gave a real Thai feel to the atmosphere.
We entered the restaurant and were greeted straight away. We had the option of sitting outside or inside. It was a sunny day and we chose to sit inside and enjoy the views and scenery inside the restaurant.
There was so much to look at and see and I could just imagine being in a foreign Thai market place. The interior was themed very well.
Sylvia tested out the Kids Menu at Thai Khun. She was given a picture to colour in, some juice and a starter of vegetable sticks. Sylvia loves cucumber so these went down well.
Next Sylvia had noodles, chicken and BBQ sweet and sour sauce. Sylvia loves noodles and she could not wait to tuck into her meal.
The noodles were according to Sylvia delicious and she ate them all up really quickly. The meal came on a special tray with the food separated and the option to combine ingredients.
I think the trays are brilliant. Then children have the option to mix the noodles and chicken or keep them separated. Sylvia opted to separate her food and dipped her chicken in the sauce which she said was very tasty.
We were all given water along with the drinks we ordered. There were a god variety of options. We chose orange juice and were given juice in a bottle from Thailand. It tasted great.
For dessert Sylvia chose a Chocolate Ice block which was perfect for the hot weather and eaten quickly.
John had Thai Sirloin steak with sticky rice, salad and a chili sauce. He loved his meal and ate the lot.
I had the same meal as my daughter, (A Children’s meal) but with rice instead of noodles. I had a gastric bypass 20 weeks ago and can only eat small amounts of food. I managed half the chicken and rice and the sauce was delicious.
Sylvia is a great fan of rice and decided to finish my dinner off. I didn’t mind and she had spent the last few days doing so much exercise and walking. She really enjoyed the food and is going through growth spurts so I was happy to give her a little extra.
I really did love the inside of the Thai Khun restaurant. We had a lovely meal and for a while I felt like we had been teleported to Thailand and that we were in another country. It reminded me of the year I lived in the Pacific Island of Tonga. I didn’t feel like I was in England and it was just a fantastic experience.
Sylvia finished colouring in her wonderful picture and we left to make our way back home. I did not know what to expect eating Thai food. We all loved our meals. They were all tasty and delicious and we would love to return to the restaurant again. It was a fabulous evening out.
We were given a complimentary meal in return for this honest and truthful review.
