 I love to eat Thai food not just because I am Thai but finding the right restaurant is a bit challenging also. Thai food is quite complicated in terms of delicate ingredients and cooking methods, so to find the right restaurant which can actually provide you THAT authentic taste is hard, especially when you are abroad. There are a wide variety of Thai restaurants established worldwide but not all of the restaurants can make the diners say 'wow' 
However, I have come across one of the restaurants located in the heart of Manchester, United Kingdom, called "Thaikhun" where it makes me feel like home. 

As a part of Millennium Hotels & Resorts, The Equinox Fashion was invited to participate in the campaign of "Blogger's guide to Manchester"in order to introduce a place to visit in Manchester. Hence, I wouldn't even hesitate to recommend Thaikhun to the readers since I just feel like I would love to present the place that truly offers the 'genuine taste' of Thailand.

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to visit Thaikhun myself, and I spent almost two hours provided with amazing food and excellent service. My first impression has to be the decoration of the restaurant because it looks really street style to me. How could the restaurant even manage to get some of the rare items that might not be able to be found in nowadays!? If you have ever been to Khaosarn Road (My favourite place) You'll definitely love this place. Also, I just love the fact that the restaurant is very neat and clean!

I ordered lots of foods included dessert like Pandan Pancake last night. The starter I selected was Por Pia Sod, healthy veggie wrap with fresh prawns, while my friend went for Moo Dad Diew. The vegetables were really fresh and I love it because I am a person who really concern about the quality of  the food, however, Por Pia Sod looks a bit like Vietnamese food to me because in Thailand this dish is different. The sauce also differs from the ingredients used in Thailand, however, I assume that it might be hard to find the exact same ingredients in UK since there aren't many Asian markets unless you have to import everything from the original country which might cost a lot in logistic. Besides, I understand that the taste has to be adapted because Thai people (not including me) eat really spicy food. Therefore, for the pleasure of the diners here, the food has to be adjusted but still tasted in Thai style.  

For the main course, I have to say that I love eating Pad See Eiw so much! It tasted really delicious I must say. My friend also ordered Mad Sa Man Gai (Chicken curry) which is not a spicy dish but more sweet and creamy, good for those who love coconut milk.
