A bit tricky to book as the phone wasn't answered but we persevered and we are glad we did! Pleasant welcome on arrival and we were shown to a table upstairs in what seemed to be a converted chapel. Tastefully decorated. We ordered a variety of starters and mains some off the specials list all reasonably priced and not too... More

Housed in the old Market Hall in Ambleside, we had a spicy, tasty meal, beautifully presented and served by a waitress able to describe the choices available. Ample off road parking a short distance away.

My wife ordered the vegetable spring rolls to start and had a beef stirfry which she really enjoyed too. It was her first Thai and she doesn't like anything too spicy. The staff can offer advice and every dish can be toned... More

Had a meal here during a holiday in The Lakes and was not disappointed. I had the spring rolls which were tasty, followed by the Penang curry which was absolutely delicious! You could tell it was all freshly made and the meat was tender. Staff friendly and welcoming. Only downside for me was there was limited white wine by the... More

Have the duck red curry! It's original and delicious. Really friendly staff and a tasty delight in area which could quite easily just play on its location for custom. Great work!
