We visited this restaurant due to its reviews on this site. The staff were very welcoming and found us a table despite us not booking. We like to try new things so we both ordered meals we had never had before with a little help from the waitress. The starter was tasty and the main was fantastic. The Thai beer... More

We have stayed in Ambleside on numerous occasions. This restaurant is great. We arrived on spec and got the table near the entrance, that was great as the weather was muggy! The food here is faultless and the staff equally friendly and attentive. If you are looking for exquisite Thai cuisine this is a must go!

We literally walked in off the street on our first evening in the Lake Districts! We are lovers of Thai food and have been to Thailand many times and were very impressed by the quality and authenticity of the food at Doi Intanon. The staff were lovely and friendly, the Restaurant had a nice ambience. We were both extremely impressed... More

Doi Intanon is probably my favourite restaurant in Ambleside. It's cheaper than everywhere else (I don't know why Ambleside restaurants are so expensive). Every dish we ordered (we went twice) was consistently delicious. Mains are around £10 (compared to £15-£20 in other restaurants) It's been there for over a decade, with good reason!

We stumbles upon this restaurant by chance. We had to book for this meal as it is very busy!! The food was amazing. Huge selection for all tastes and tasted like authentic Thai food. Excellent wine selection too. The decor was beautiful! There is no air conditioning therefore could be very hot but there are fans everywhere keeping you cool.... More

The location of this restaurant is very good and ranges over several floors. It is very bright and clean with the most beautiful staircase. The service was very good from this family run restaurant the menu is very clear with a picture of chillies against each dish denoting how hot it is. Having selected a range of dishes we were...

A week in Ambleside every year and a meal in the Doi Intanon every time. Always good. This time was actually the best meal we have had there. Always look forward to going back

The manager was very welcoming and the china was lovely, but I am afraid the food didn't really set me on fire. It was pleasant, but not amazing.

We love returning to this restaurant each year and the food is fun and tasty. The staff always make sure we are not overdoing the chillies and after 4 or 5 visits we haven't yet left anything on the plate.

Have tried to get into this restaurant a couple of times before but has been fully booked. We made a reservation well in advance this time. Its a quirky different style building, not what we expected however it was a great experience. The food was fabulous, excellent starters, chicken satay and king prawns in filo pastry. Mains were full of... More
