We love Thai food and were not disappointed by Jintana. The red chicken curry was spicy and delicious, with plenty of chicken. The Pad Thai was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. The cocktails were good too, so all in all a very good find and we'd definitely return.

The food was packed inside the standard size takeaway plastic boxes, but within the boxes a smallish portion of rice was wrapped in cling film, approximately half filling the container. The other food portions... More

There's no law saying that restaurant staff have to come from the place represented by the food they're serving. But the lack of any Thai staff these days (front of house, at least) does rob it of some of its former authenticity. Of more concern was the bill. The food was fine, although one of our two mains was the... More

4 of us had a 2 course meal from the pre-theatre menu, all of which was delicious. Very satisfying as well as tasty. I would recommend this restaurant.

We had a very nice Thai meal there. The waiter got my wife's order wrong (a different chicken dish), but other than that service was good. The Thai crackers were very generous in portion size and the food was tasty and well presented. Both Thai's in Ambleside are equally good.

The Jintana is a great Thai restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful meal experience. Great service and a reasonable priced meal in a good location opposite the cinema.
