We ended our week in amble side at the Doing Intanon and had a great meal. Real mixture of diners from couples to large groups. We tried two starters and both very nice. Our mains were both the green curry as it was rated as quite a hot dish. Was nice but a bit tame for us. Earlier in the... More

We ate here following a recommendation and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and all the staff were helpful and efficient. The food was delicious and well presented. Well worth a visit.

This was our first visit to this tempting restaurant. Surprisingly large, with a light & airy upstairs, it's comfortable and welcoming. The food was wonderful, our generous portion of starters (thai fishcakes and two types of spring rolls) were followed by well presented delicious main courses. The chili rating given to the spicy dishes did seem very accurate and so... More

We were staying in Clappersgate for the week and only got a take-away from here on the last night. We would have ate in the restaurant but we were on holiday with our dog. The food was gorgeous and very tasty, we will be returning next time we are in Ambleside. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Would highly... More

Found this great place while walking down the road in Ambleside. We were planning to have Asian cuisine and hence walked in without a reservation. Was fortunate enough to get a table upstairs and the place looked pretty full. There was a wide ranging choice of food with chilly ratings attached. The starters comprising of Gai Hor Bai Toey (marinated... More

Given the difficulty of importing all the right ingredients to make authentic Thai food this restaurant manages to make some of the best Thai food I've tasted in the UK. We were seated upstairs next to a window looking south and although we'd never eaten here before the owner (Busara) made us feel really welcome and looked after us right... More

This is one of four restaurants that my wife and I visit every year whilst staying in Ambleside. It is on the main road so easy to find, a wide-ranging choice on the menu, plenty of tables having extended upstairs a few years ago. Do take notice of the "Chilli Rating" on the menu, I once ordered the Thai Green... More

Stopped here for food without a reservation. We were greeted warmly and shown straight to a table where we ate the tastiest meal of the weeks visit. Not huge portions, but delicious and well presented. Hostess was very friendly Would definitely eat here again.

As 2 couples staying in a holiday cottage, Doi Intanon ticked all the boxes for providing a Sunday evening meal. Bizarrely, quite a few of the restaurants are closed on a Sunday night and so this establishment was comfortably busy with visitors. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, with comfortable chairs and fresh flowers on each table. On arrival we... More

A very enjoyable meal. We started by sharing the Thai fish cakes (2each, more than enough for 2) then both had a red Thai curry - salmon for me and chicken for OH. All very good, definitely recommended.
