First impressions of this restaurant are great. Colourful and as soon as you walk in the smell of lemongrass hits you which was lovely. Having travelled to Thailand three times and Vietnam once I was looking forward to this restaurant. My friend who I travelled with to Asia was also excited about Jintana. The first upset was when we were... More

Visited a couple of evenings ago for the early bird menu and very impressed with the first class service from the helpful and attentive staff. The food was extremely well presented and tasted great. We didn't have to wait long for the starters and were given the option of going straight onto the main course or waiting a while, which... More

Four of us ate there on a Sunday night, less than 10 people in total between 7pm and 9pm in the restaurant. We ordered a set meal for 4 people, the food was ok but a little sparse in my view and nothing special, was more like Chinese with a Thai twist ! The decor is very old looking but... More

I live near two very good Thai restaurants and also visit Thailand and I'm sorry but the food here isn't quite up to the mark. Thai food is cooked fast and comes to you fresh from the wok and has all the lovely flavours and aromas to remind you of Thailand. Didn't get much of that here. Bit overcooked and... More

Popped in here on spec during the mountain festival and found them welcoming even though we hadn't booked. Staff were attentive enough, 2 starters were good as were the mains. Decent portions, good flavour. Would go back.

The food here was good but the service is TERRIBLE and I will not be returning. Whilst waiting for our food another table simple asked how long their meal would be as it was 6:45 and they had been told they had to be out by 7:30 as the table was booked. They had been waiting over an hour and... More

The food was OK but had to keep my big down coat on throughout the meal as there was no heating on. Asked the waitress if the heating was on and she said it was always cold in there. My boyfriend asked again later and she said she would ask someone. Was eager to get out of there and whilst... More

My husband & I ate here on valentines night. The restaurant is cold & i felt somewhat crowded in between other tables. Choice of wine was extremely poor unless you were prepared to buy a bottle. Food was ok but not amazing & the cutlery had twisted handles making it really difficult to use in fact i resorted to using... More
