Chef May has taken the Manchester culinary scene by storm. When the chef of her restaurant left she took on the cooking duties to keep the business going.


May learned to cook solely by watching Thai YouTube cooks. The dishes she serves at there cafe, Siam Smiles, have been highly praised by food critics in the city. Now she hopes her story will inspire other budding chefs…


"The most exciting thing to happen to me in Manchester since the days of the Hacienda."

The Telegraph 

''Siam Smiles is known as much for this relaxed dining approach as it is for its authentic Thai menu: fish ball noodle soups, papaya salad, and blow-your-head-off curries.''


''Siam Smiles will be a grand place for lunch and evening food. It is reasonably priced and packs a delightful food punch.''
