Reviewed 17 June 2014

A very enjoyable meal. We started by sharing the Thai fish cakes (2each, more than enough for 2) then both had a red Thai curry - salmon for me and chicken for OH. All very good, definitely recommended.

“Excellent service and delicious food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We went here with my parents as they had been there a few years earlier and hoped it was still as good as it was and they were not disappointed. We were seated straight away and our drinks order taken swiftly. There was an excellent menu with lots of choice (although as a non-meat eater I prefer Thai restaurants to serve quorn rather than tofu). We like spicy food so opted for the jungle curry. There wasn't much choice of plain food for the children so they ended up with plain rice and plain noodles (my children have an aversion to sauces) - maybe a plain chicken or beef noodle dish or similar for children wouldn't go amiss or some sort of kids menu, although I am sure they would have made something if we asked specifically. The food was very tasty and the jungle curry did not disappoint on the heat front - yummy! There were some nice desserts too - not just frozen deserts which seem to be the speciality of Thai restaurants usually. Would definately eat again here - staff very friendly. The restaurant was clearly popular and would recommend booking in advance as many people were turned away whilst we were dining.

“Another great meal”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Every visit to Ambleside includes a meal at this great little restaurant. On holiday with friends in the area meant that I was able to steer everyone to Doi Intanon last week. We had dishes from the vegetarian menu, including delicious satay tofu and corn cakes for starters. We weren't disappointed - food delicious, service very good and superb value. Thank you, I'll be back.

“Excellent Thai cuisine ”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We visited without a booking but were offered a table and made to feel welcome. We chatted to the owner whilst waiting, his personal
and friendly manor made us feel comfortable and valued.
The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, upstairs is particularly pretty and quite unexpected. The service and attention to detail was excellent, Sebastian served us the was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Sea-bass and king prawn red curry both equally beautiful, packed with flavours and presented well. The food was served promptly with our choice of rice and noodles. The restaurant is well priced and is well worth a visit, it's been there for 14 years so they are certainly doing something right! We will certainly visit again... But book next time. Highly recommend :)
