DISTRICT, Northern Quarter’s alternative Thai dining experience has impressed crowds with its avant garde dining since opening its doors back in 2021.

Its menus explore progressive barbecue cooking that has a focus on traditional Thai food, but gives it a modern twist. It takes inspiration from other cultures to fuse a tasting menu that’s unlike anything you’ve ever eaten before, so the talk of a one-off birthday many will delight the ears and taste buds of many.

Taking place on the 27th and 28th May, the kitchen will celebrate 365 days of cross-continent cooking with a Synthwave soundtrack supplied by Manchester’s very own Nite School.

The menu will be full of one-off dishes that won’t be seen on the menu again, designed by the team’s expert chefs. 

They haven’t given much away yet about what will be available at the exclusive dining event, but you can expect all of the cheffing mastery of DISTRICT with deconstructed and re-invented Thai dishes leading the way

Each dish will also be paired with a drink and the evening will end with an all night party in celebration of the restaurant’s one year of service!

DISTRICT came to life after the owners of Tokyo Ramen saw a gap in the market for a Neofuturistic interpretation of Bangkok’s street food in the city. 

Thai inspiration allows District to put things like ‘Not Tacos’ on the menu: perfectly formed morsels of beef brisket saturated in a juicy, coconut-infused curry, served on a ‘pancake’ – heavily influenced by southern Thai ‘roti’, definitely not a taco.

The venue has also bagged itself a prestigious spot in the Michelin guide and has had some outstanding reviews from big publications such as The Times during its short stint as a restaurant.
