This was our first visit to this restaurant. I don't know why we never tried it before on our many visits to Ambleside. Despite making a last minute booking we were made welcome from the moment of entering and shown to our table with very little delay. The staff were extremely friendly and polite, attentive and helpful, even to advising on the amount of chillies in each of the dishes. This is great for someone who is new to Thai food and is afraid of ordering something too "hot." The menu is vast and there is something for every taste. Certainly a must go to eatery.

The food is superb.. The service attentive and discreet.
Not the cheapest Thai in Ambleside but simply the best . The ambience is superb.
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Our last evening in the lakes following out weeks holiday of walking and exploring, we thought we'd treat ourselves to some posh nosh!

We prebooked (which I think might be a necessity for a Friday night in Ambleside) but did arrive early but the staff were very accommodating in getting us seen to.

The restaurant is decorated very well and is clean and smart etc. but it lacked something which we couldn't quite put our fingers on. Perhaps the lack of Thai staff, or the not providing your customers with chopsticks. Little things. The menu is quite small with some English additions.

However, that being by the by as the food was delicious and the bill was not massive. The staff were indeed helpful and attentive.

Pre-booking on a Saturday night is essential as the place was packed and they were turning people away. Despite this the service and food were both excellent. We sat upstairs which has a large vaulted ceiling with a real sense of space. A great atmosphere.
