Eating out

Called into this restaurant on the off chance of them fitting us in on a very busy evening. They were great, rearranged some seating, asked us if we could fit in for an hour later, which suited us fine. As we were going into the town for a quite drink first. When we went back we were shown to... read more

Four of us (two couples) had dinner here on a Friday night, it was busy but the service was very good. The young Thai lady who seemed to be running service has a brilliant sense of humour and really adds to the atmosphere. It's reasonably priced, the wine was very good too and the restaurant décor is lovely, it's small... More

Quite possibly the best food I have had. Was staying in Kendal and fancied trying the other Thai restaurant that is top of trip advisor and was disappointed to find it shut every day we were staying. We did find this place a little lower, however we are greatful we did. All the food was packed full of flavour. We... More

From the minute you walk in the door nothing is too much trouble. The food is suberb; having visited Thailand I can honestly say that this is as authentic as it gets. Staff are friendly and smile a lot just like in Thailand. Can not recommend highly enough

Had Saturday night supper here and as I'm a great fan of Thai food, I was looking forward to eating here. I wasn't disappointed - the food was excellent - the wine good and well priced - and the staff engaging and persuasive. Who could ask for more?

We had a child free night and decided to try here. Wow this place is great from the waiting on staff to the decor but most of all the food was absolutely delicious. We will return.

The decor is lovely, the service excellent and the food very good - in fact we couldn't eat it all so, had it boxed and enjoyed it next day!

I have had takeaways from here before that have been beautiful and all present and correct. So when my in laws came to stay, I suggested we get a takeaway from Sawadee, we ordered at around 7:30 but would have to wait until 9 to collect the food, but this was not a problem for us. When we went to... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago during a long weekend away in the lakes. I had looked on tripadvisor before our trip and spotted this restaurant on here. We both love Thai food so I booked us a table for the Saturday night. The decor was great, very authentic, and the staff were friendly... More
