A very busy place- need to book in advance. Fish cakes were a little rubbery, not as good as we expected- hence not 'excellent' rating. Rest of food was good, regular hot Thai flavours, good service overall and a lovely setting in the old hall. Nothing out of the ordinary with some tough competition in town. Love Thai food so...

Just spent a week in the Lakes and decided to eat here as it was recommended by the owner of the cottage we were staying in. It was so good, we ate there again on our last night. The Pad Thai is easily the best I've ever had and everything else we ate was faultless from start to finish. If... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Ambleside and my all time favourite Thai restaurant; trust me I have visited a few!! I like the atmosphere of the Doi Intanton as it sits inside an old chapel in the heart of Ambleside which gives it a unique feel. A word of warning though this restaurant is popular so you might want... More

We ate twice here during a week's holiday. Both times the staff were very accommodating and we were given a table without a reservation. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious on both visits. We tried their curries, stir fries and weeping tiger. Sometimes a second visit can be disappointing, but we were delighted with... More

What a great place! Lovely old building adorned with Thai decoration and tastefully furnished. Lots of choice, so only problem was what to have! Food was superb. All of us had different choices and all were fantastically tasty and beautifully presented. Although I am not an expert both my well travelled friends assured me that this is the real deal.... More

We ate here on Thursday evening - arrived early evening to find the restaurant already fairly busy. The restaurant is in an amazing building and inside the decor is impressive. Upstairs the restaurant is light and airy and unlike any Thai I have visited before. We chose the set menu and were pleased that we did. Mixed starters arrived included... More

We had a red and green curry with jasmine rice and fried noodles - the food was absolutely delicious ! Both of agreed... More
