Chaophraya Restaurant Review: January 2017
Chaophraya pronounced “chow – pry – a” is named after a river in Thailand formed by the confluence of the Nan and Ping Rivers; flows southward past Bangkok and empties into the Gulf of Thailand. I and my plus one boarded the long-tail Thai boat known as Ruea Hang Yao for an adventure of a life time and ready to seek out foodie Thai treasures in the heart of Manchester city centre. The moment that you step through the doors the attention to detail has clearly been thoroughly thought out and the restaurant interiors offer opulent surroundings boasting a mixture of standard and sunken seating on two full floors with ornate lighting features and authentic Thai statues.

Thaikhun pronounced “Tycoon” is both a homage and celebration to the street food sellers in Thailand.

Invited to sample Kim’s new menu, boarding pass in hand, I flagged down a traditional Thai Tuk Tuk and prepared to hold on tight, as it was my time to brave the bustling Bangkok streets for the culinary ride of my life.
