We received a friendly welcome, quick service and the food was the best Tai I've ever had. I went because the restaurant was recommended by my sister, who spent her birthday there every year. It did not disappoint!

Brilliant food, fantastic smells and great service. A brilliant restaurant and one we'd return to tomorrow if we lived in the area. We first visited Doi Intanon 4 years ago on my first trip to Ambleside with my (now) wife. We stumbled in as it was the only place serving walk-in's at 8.30. We live in London so were a... More

I really can't fault the taste of the food from here, it has been consistently good for the many years we have been returning here. One thing I have noticed though is that the portions are getting bigger, and the food seems to be getting more filling. Years ago this used to be such a tasty but light place to... More

My husband and I ate here this month. We both had satay skewers to start and then shared a coconut rice with chicken cashew and massaman curry. I can't fault anything about this place. The food is honestly the nicest Thai food we've eaten outside of Thailand.

We visited on a Friday evening. The meal was great. Service was good. We'd definitely recommend booking, as the restaurant is extremely popular and busy.

We ordered a take away for 8pm. It was ready on the dot. Boiling hot and absolutely delicious, I can recommend the green tai chicken curry.

Managed to get in at short notice and although we arrived fairly late in the evening at no point did we feel we were being rushed. My food was absolutely gorgeous and apparently my girlfriends veggie options were too. Attentive service and reasonable price, and the decor and feel was interesting as well.

Food was great and nice to have a set meal to try new things. Staff helpful even though restaurant was very busy. Clean restaurant and good value for money.

Have used their take away service over many years, but this time my husbands meal was very disappointing. Also the meals have lost the delicate touch of previous years and have become rather stodgy. Shame!

A good but expensive meal was ruined when the bill turned up. A charge of £30 was added for service charge. When the manager was questioned about it he seemed to be annoyed & argumentative about it & wasn't going to budge on it. It wasn't mentioned when we booked the table its in very small writing at the back... More
