Perhaps it had been built up a bit, as this had been recommended to me as the best Thai in the area. I wasn't too impressed. The special starter of sweetcorn cakes were a bit tough & bland. The husbands prawns looked the same as ones I'd bought in m&s. The mains of Thai red curry & beef stirfry with... More

we went on a Monday night and it was still busy which was good sign. The menu is extensive so its hard to choose. I had a duck dish and my wife a prawn curry. Both were excellent and a good portion. The staff are very helpful and the tableware is a nice Thai design which adds to the experience.... More

We ate here at the weekend - the first time we have eaten a Thai meal for some years - and thoroughly enjoyed it. Despite me needing to follow a gluten and lactose free diet there was plenty for me to choose from. Between us we had prawn crackers with sweet chilli dip, chicken satay, mixed vegetable and tofu stir... More

Seated downstairs promptly, friendly front of house staff and food that will blow you away. The stand out dish being the Drunken Duck Stir-Fry! Amazing. Full of flavour and spiced perfectly. The beef salad and Thai Green curry were faultless too Zara and I had a great meal. If you are worried about the heat of the dishes they will... More

We called in by chance and enjoyed a lovely dinner in a very interesting building, with a more recently opened upstairs - don't forget to note the ornate Thai carvings on the wooden bannisters!. Lovely Thai food, a good selection but the best thing was the friendly service and the great staff

We stopped in here quite late on a very wet evening and were simply grateful for a table. Gratitude turned to joy when our food was served. Each dish was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and we had a wonderful meal. The spice rating on the menu seems to be pretty spot on. Definitely somewhere...

We visit Ambleside several times a year but it's been a while since we've eaten here. Previously we have enjoyed our meal in spite of small portions and a fairly limited menu. My, how things have changed. The menu is extensive, with a wide and varied selection of starters and mains. These is plenty of choice for meat eaters and... More
