Fantastic fresh food which you can taste is made from fresh produce :) the way Thai food should be. Went here due to the fantastic reviews from other locals and was not disappointed!!!! Can't believe the shocking review in here by some stupid tourist!?!? They are obviously clueless when it comes to Thai Food... Kendal lives you Little Thai Chef :)

“Authentic, delicious and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Whenever I go back to Kendal, eating food from Tana's kitchen is definitely one of the highlights. The food is fresh with tons of ingrediants that are just beautifully cooked - it never disappoints. I'm just sorry thats its not my local takeaway.

“Consistently excellent food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

We often get food from the Little Thai Chef and it is always fantastic. People need to understand that the food is freshly prepared and cooked to order unlike many take aways so we're always happy to wait- it's always worth it! We love it so much that I bought my boyfriend a voucher for a cookery course here for Christmas. Please disregard that negative comment, from over 15 visits we've never had poor service or food.

“Little Thai legend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Tana's culinary skill has got to be one of Kendal's best kept secrets . The food at little Thai is consistently excellent and offers great value. Tana the owner is always hard working and delighted to explain the cooking traditions and ingredients she uses. A fab place that deserves a top trip advisor review and a high ranking as a place to eat wholesome and really tasty Thai cuisine. Nothing mass produced here. The other really great thing about this place is Tana's friendly approach to customer service.A place to go and enjoy great authentic Thai cooking at an affordable price!
