Tasty authentic Thai food. Freshly cooked, good quality ingredients and well spiced. Very good value for money. Friendly attentive service. Nice ambience and setting. Popped in on a Thursday tea time around 7pm and was surprised that it was empty, with the exception of one customer who was finishing as I arrived.

We visited Bangkok bistro on Friday evening. The manager was incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble all evening. He made sure everyone in our party was catered for and was able to make recommendations about his menu! The food was high quality, reasonably priced and delicious! All of the dishes were made with fresh ingredients, and were adapted... More

We were on our summer holidays and found this little place, very impressed with the quality of food on offer and the food was excellent and as authentic as my local- no surprise to find out both have Thai chefs. Great cuisine, great service, you won't be disappointed.

Lovely food and accommodating staff. Arrived late evening without a booking and were easily seated. Not a cosy restaurant (having previously been a shop I should think) having tiled floors and being very spatial. Food was good and reasonable.

Great freshly made Thai food in a family run restaurant. We had the mixed platter to start which was delicious and the Red Curry and Massaman curry were delicious too. The staff were really friendly and everything was great value, we'd definitely come again!

Being someone who loves Thai food I was looking forward to eating here. I was however somewhat disappointed. To start with the prawn crackers were stale & then we saw that most of the dishes contained peppers. As far as I'm aware in Thailand peppers are not used. The dishes were cooked very well yet it was a shame some... More

Food was superb! The Scottish owner was really friendly (even though he was over run with diners) and even took the time out to tell us about his family life (we enquired). Its his wife who does all the cooking upstairs and she learnt to cook off her mother. I had vegetable Thai green curry and my husband had Massaman... More

We were visiting the Lake District for a friends wedding and staying at a B&B just north of Penrith. After a long day of walking in the Ullswater area we discovered this restaurant using the Trip Advisor app. The location is perfect and we received a warm welcome when we arrived! The food was authentic and we were really pleased... More
