Went as part of a large group of 24 having only booked for 20 but they could not have been more helpful despite being really busy. The service was excellent and, whilst I'm no expert on Thai food, the food was outstanding. Everything was fresh, fragrant and suitably spicy. Couldn't have asked for more

Visited Doi Intanon on a Monday evening in January. Restaurant was relatively busy, staff very friendly and attentive. Food was authentic and absolutely delicious. Highly recommended for livening up your tastebuds whilst in Ambleside!

We tried here because it was central to shops, hotels etc, very busy early in the evening and that is a great sign, we were not disappointed. We had the mixed set menu for two of fish and meat dishes, the sauces were hot and mild as requested so no surprises. The atmosphere was good, service timely, staff very friendly,... More

Just fancied something different and popped in to see if there was a table for 6 and came back ten minutes later with the table waiting. The staff were attentive, and the drinks arrived quickly, complimentary prawn crackers followed by delicious corn-cakes and fishcakes. For main, I highly recommend the Special-Drunken Duck-portion size was not over powering but rich in... More

Quite honestly the best Thai food we have ever had. The building is amazing too ! Top tip would be to ask for a table upstairs as it can be a little cold downstairs when people walking in from the road (we usually go round January ) 5 Stars and would recommend even if you haven't had Thai food before...

We very nearly went back the next night to (unusually) order the same meals again. Subtle, wonderful flavours.

We have previously really liked this restaurant, but we were a bit disappointed this visit. Food was ok but not great, service quite indifferent. The restaurant was closed at the beginning of the week and we thought about trying the alternative Thai in town, but decided to stay loyal and wait. I wish we hadn't bothered, and will go to...

Loved it....Had to wait for table as we hadn't booked. Book to avoid disappointment! Family run business and the passion shows in the service and the owner floating around chatting with customers. Lovely atmosphere. Food...well, I have got to say, personally it is the best Thai food I have eaten. I didn't want it to end!!! And it takes a... More
