The quality and service is very good. Unfortunately the food(all of it) was served luke warm, and there were only two tables in the restaurant besides mine. The wait staff was attentive so I can only assume the kitchen was in a rush ti get the food out. The quality of the food was good, but who wants to eat... More

I've spent some time in Thailand to appreciate the real Thai experience but I found my Thai fish cakes to be slightly rubber like & my red curry seemed made more with cream instead of coconut milk. It was sickly. It's a shame as this place receives good reviews & has a warm ambience but I was let down by... More

In Ambleside for a week with work and checked out Doi Intanon on the first night. We were all really impressed with pretty much every dish we had and were surprised at how busy it was on a Monday in November! I'd recommend this place if you're in town, but be prepared....4 chillies plus is pretty hot!

We chose this Thai restaurant in Ambleside purely on the fact the menu says they do not use shrimp paste or fish sauce in their vegetarian dishes. We got a table of two early on a Tuesday night which was a good thing as people came piling in afterwards. We ordered a bottle of Merlot and a lager whilst we... More
