We visited this restaurant after a recommendation and it did not disappoint! We went for the set menu and the food was first class. If you are in Ambleside then you need to include this restaurant in your plans.

Anybody who is used to good Thai food will be bitterly disappointed with this place. My chicken stir fry was made with chicken mince 😟 The mixed starter was dry and average at best. But chicken mine... really!! They must be struggling.

Dear 522alastairm, Thank you for your opinion of our food. However it is a little difficult to take seriously: The Chicken stir-fry that you ordered was Phad Krapow. The meat in this dish is traditionally prepared minced and then stir-fried with Garlic, Chilli & Basil. This is why your dish was served as it should have been: MINCED. In our... More

Didn't think Thai food could get any better than what Iv previously tried, I was wrong. Literally the best food Iv had. We had the set menu which was £20.50 each it included a mixed starter for two. We also had Thai green curry, chicken and cashew and a stir fry veg and two rice. The food was so fresh... More

Visited midweek. The place was fairly busy and it had a lovely atmosphere. The service was perfect. Attentive staff and no long wait. Food was the best Thai food I have. Good quality ingredients used and a good chef. Good menu choice. Can't really fault it. If I lived closer then I'd me back more often.

We have visited this restaurant for many years and it continues to be very good. A good choice of dishes, attentive service. The best thai in Ambleside. Ensure you book as it is always busy.
