Make your mum feel like the queen she is at Chaophraya this Mother’s Day


Mums deserve to be celebrated all year round, but let’s face it very often we don’t take the time to show her how much we care. That’s why Mother’s Day is so important.

Our annual day of showing our mums just how much they mean to us is fast approaching.

Time to start planning how you want to show her how much you appreciate her.


In Thailand on Mother’s Day mums visit their children’s school where each child will kneel at her mother’s feet, paying respect to her for all she has done for them.

And although we’re probably not going to start getting on all fours to bow down to our mums, we’re still pretty grateful for everything they’ve done in raising us over the years.

So why not add a bit of extra spice to Mother’s Day this year by taking the celebrations to Chaophraya.

In Thailand, Mother’s Day commemorates the birth of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit – the Mother of all Thai people – so you can expect a unique celebration unlike any other around the city.

Boasting a stunning fine-dining atmosphere and service that is second to none, you’re guaranteed to make your mum feel like the queen she truly is on her special day with a little help from Manchester’s most sought after contemporary Thai restaurant.

With some mouthwatering deliciousness on offer from royal sous vide lamb massaman curry, to a classic pad thai – or even some slow cooked belly pork with aromatic thai spices – prepare to take your taste buds on a journey.

If your mum’s more of the adventurous type and would rather be getting hands on with the food than being waited on hand and foot, why not book in for a cooking class or cocktail making experience?

Despite mums often complaining about doing all the cooking – we know they secretly love it.

Bond with them over your shared love of food as you unlock the secrets of Thai cuisine under the expert guidance of a head chef. With fruit punch on arrival, a food demonstration and plenty of time to recreate the dishes yourself.

And if there’s one thing we all know mums love just as much as their children – it’s a cocktail.

Learn from the best as a professional mixologist gives you all the inside info on how to recreate your favourite tipples at home. Get creative and even design your own signature cocktail before getting behind the bar and styling it out like Tom Cruise in the classic 80s film.

And if you want to go full on Thai for the celebrations, a traditional Mother’s Day gift in Thailand is jasmine, a flower that resembles motherhood.

Called dok mali, the flower is seen as a symbol of purity and gentleness. If you ask us, it would probably be much better received than a £5 bunch from the petrol station.
