I love Thai food and convinced my other half that we should eat there :-) I believe the building the restaurant is in used to be an old market hall and we sat upstairs in the high-ceilinged part which has huge windows, making it very... read more

I was introduced to this place last year by a seasoned Thai foodie. We have been back three times since and would consider our visit to Ambleside not complete without having a meal at this restaurant. Fantastic food. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere.

Was recommended this restaurant by the owners of the B&B we were staying at. We arrived without booking to be seated in the huge high ceilinged upstairs. Very attentive service & extremely tasty dishes. We had never eaten Thai before so the chilli scale on the menu to inform you of the dishes heat was very useful. Would definitely recommend.

Probably the best Thai food I have experienced. Staff are friendly and efficient. The restaurant always seems full of happy customers and the only negative I can think of is that the tables are rather squashed in upstairs.

Delicious food, cooked fresh and can be 'tweaked' if you want to change the 'heat' of the sauce for example. We have never had cause to regret coming back time and time again, you're guaranteed a marvellous welcome, friendly efficient service, great choice of wine and such tasty food. Congratulations Chris and Busara for maintaining your very high standards

Coming in on a whim after a long day in the hills we hadn't booked but were seated quickly and welcomed warmly. The staff were all attentive and friendly, soon the order was taken and the drinks/food arrived promptly. It was beautiful, with no knowledge of Thai cuisine we risked it all on a prawn special which was divine! Our... More

Staff were very attentive and pleasant and loved the 'uniforms'. Menu was varied and there was also the option to alter the 'heat' in all the dishes. When our food came the waitress carefully explained how to maximise the flavour using various dips. Food was absolutely gorgeous- amazing flavours. A thoroughly enjoyable evening at a very reasonable price.
