Quality food and Attentive Service

First impression as you walk in, great décor, staff in uniforms to add to the Thai ambience. Little bits of detail such the wood covers on menu's and wine list add to an air of quality. Dare I say it even the toilets are immaculate, bamboo wallpaper and Moulton Brown toiletries. So what about the... read more

Friendly staff. Decent wine selection. Food prepared fresh. Compliments on the Thai platter much better than more common deep fried offerings I have experience in other Thais. We went for the £44 set menu and enjoyed it. Two mains were a beef and a chicken dish.

We tried to book this little place for a Saturday but given it was Bank Holiday we obviously should have booked a bit sooner, but we got in for the Sunday and we certainly weren't let down. The service was brilliant, fast and polite. The food was delicious but the portions were huge! I felt rude but had to leave... More

I love thai food and this didn't disappoint. Beautiful restaurant with helpful staff. Waited a while to be asked whether we wanted more drinks but they were busy and everything else made up for that. I can't think of any better Thai restaurant I've been too in the UK and the food was every bit as good as the best... More

We marvelled at the gracious and warm welcome from the owners. Drinks were served very quickly and the amazing 3 course delectable meal followed without a long wait. This was greatly appreciated as we had travelled far. All servings were utterly delicious and so tasty and tastefully served. Compliments to the chef were offered.

We got a table straight away, although I imagine you would need to book a table at weekends. The service was really nice, friendly and welcoming. We didn't have to wait too long for the food. Food was tasty, good portion sizes, although the meal we ordered said 3chillies hot it really wasn't hot at all. I Recommend this if... More

Although it was a little quiet when we arrived, the food and helpful staff made up for this. Very pleasant surroundings and delicious food. We got a takeaway the following week!

We love our Italian and tapas but for a change my boyfriend and I tried this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We only had a short stay in Kendal and went here on our final night- last night. It was the perfect end to a lovely mid week break. The Thai green prawn curry was the best I've had... More
