“Quirky but lovely.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

We had a very simple meal here as we weren't very hungry but still loved to have some food. We had the penang beef curry, some fried rice and sticky rice. Food was served surprisingly quickly. The curry was fantastic, although the value a little weak as you didn't get that much for 8.25. The rice dishes were solid. Service was quite attentive and didn't give us fussy looks for not ordering that much (a big + in attitude when compared to a lot of restaurants...). Honestly, the decor is a little dodgy with bright red and green colours, but it's not that big of a deal as the food and service was quite good. Thanks!

“Just about okay. Ish.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Very confused what to say really. Love Thai food both missus and I. The decor looked okay. The staff was very friendly. The duck in starter was tasty too and then it started going downhill. We had sizzling prawn for one of the three mains. It was undercooked and anything but sizzling. The side of noodle didn't taste like properly home made. Just the cheap super market type. Another main was Singaporean style Noodles - very little meat. And no taste whatsoever. just plain noodle with some sauce if you like. The only highlight was the third main dish - some thai curry that I cannot remember the name of, and it tasted better than average especially with the jasmine flavoured rice. Not a great evening for us but we did have a lot of average and sometimes tasteless food because a. the place was clean and b. we were famished :)

“exellent food, surroundings slightly strange”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

The waitress was friendly and helpful. Food delicious, plentiful and nicely presented. Portions of rice large. Starter half duck which we ordered for three would have fed four easily . I found the surroundings strange - rather bare brightly coloured walls but no curtains to soften the general effect. Would definitely go back but try take away next time. Could do with more than one music tape playing. Down a side street so will probably not get that much passing trade . They are doing a loyalty card which is free and gives discount - apply online.

“Fresh and spicy authentic Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We went here on the off chance. Great selection. Everything beautifully fresh and piping hot. This with gentle and efficient Thai service made it a great evening. No hesitation in returning.

“Thai Brasserie Bowness on Windermere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Finally a Thai restaurant that's worth visiting.
You can't miss the building in Bowness its bright and catches your eye.

The food was on the expensive side however it is well worth a visit we have had a sit down meal and a takeaway and the food was top notch on both occassions.

Keep up the good work and you should do well, we will certainly spread the word :o)
