Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do not hesitate to book this place - hands down the best place we ate when we were in Ambleside! Thank you! Only thing I would say is over order rice!

Another enjoyable evening. Although a cold breeze in the seating area down stairs and, I assume owners son, could be more customer focused. Waitress was lovely and food good.

The staff were lovely and the food was tasty but the portions were rather small and this was by far the most expensive meal we had in ambleside and it wasn’t good value at all compared to the other places we went?

Just been and ordered sharing starter with one extra starter between two of us, as we were not sure what we wanted. Had one gin, and 2 small beers Total bill was just pennies short of £50, we were very surprised as the amount of...food we got was, in our opinion small. We paid £9.95 pp for combination starter and got 1 small satay, 1 Prawn, 1 small spring roll and 1 port toast each. We ordered a speciall chicken wing starter which consisted of 4 wings for £8.95. We love good food and are happy to pay for quality food, in fact we ate at Old Stamp House last night, which was amazing. But we honestly were amazed at the cost of our meal at this Thia restaurant. Assume it relies on tourists who will just 'pay the lake district prices' but we can't condone it Won't be backMore

By far the best Thai good we have had in the UK The service was 10 out of 10, everything with a smile and fast service. The food was phenomenal, huge range of variety on the menu and the server can recommend dishes if you...ask, they can also tailor the spice level to your preference. We had 2 mains and 2 rice's all was brilliant I would highly recommendMore

We had a delicious dinner during our visit to Ambleside. The chicken satay was perfect, and the young woman who served us was friendly. The service was consistently prompt and professional. We'll be back!

WOW!!! What can i say to justify this meal. We arrived and was given a table after being advised they would need it at a certain time for someone which had booked. (We were walk ins). We had no issue at all with this, so...happy just to get a table. We then looked through the menu and chose our meals ( this was my first experience trying Thai food so didnt know were to start). We were able to have a starter, main and dessert. And OMG it was fantatstic. The food 😋. Would highly recomend.

Had a lovely family meal here last week - the Emerald sea bass was particularly good. Service was ok but had to almost stand up and wave to get the waiting staff’s attention a couple of times so, please be a bit more attentive. It’s...expensive for what it is but it’s a nice restaurant to eat in.More
