There’s a Thai-takeover at the Greater Northern’s Community Kitchen this weekend serving up everything from soups to salads, noodles to rice and plenty of Thai classics. 

Greater Northern’s Community Kitchen is giving local businesses who have restricted access to outdoor dining space the chance to operate on the open square and serve up their delicious cuisine in the heart of Manchester in a Covid-safe way! 

Siam Smiles is a critically acclaimed Thai restaurant based at the Great Northern’s Mews but this will be the first time ever owner May has cooked at a pop-up.


May’s restaurant, that has been described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘the most exciting thing to happen to me in Manchester since the days of the Hacienda’, has racked up quite the exciting name for itself.

The Siam Smiles dining experience will be open from 4pm-8:30pm on Thursday, and 11:30am-9pm Friday to Sunday.

On the menu is ‘PhpPla Phed’ duck summer rolls, ‘Yam Talay Woosen’ a seafood salad. As well as yummy ‘Khang Massaman Gal’ a chicken curry served with rice.


There will, of course, be plenty of Pad Thai on the menu too!

Diners can also treat themselves to a delicious authentic Thai dessert including ‘Koaw Niew Mamaung‘, a sweet sticky rice dish or ‘Kuay Thod’, banana flitter, both served with coconut ice cream.


The dishes can be eaten alone or shared between friends and family, ranging from £5 to £12 there’s something for every taste bud!

You don’t need to book either you can just pop down grab a table in the nice weather this weekend and soak up the last of the September sun!


And don’t worry about drinks – Estrella Damm and Didsbury Gin are on hand serving up delicious boozy drinks.
