Visited this restaurant on 30th December with friends and had a fantastic meal - we opted for the banquet for four and there was a great amount of food and everything was delicious! Will definitely come again!

Third visit to this restaurant and we were lucky to get a table . A lovely welcome by Busara and Chris Knight and then a glass of champagne. There was a special New Year menu which was just wonderful. The staff are lovely, attentive but not over the top. The restaurant was busy but there was no delays. A couple... More

Food here is always the best and NYE was no exception - a set meal of 3 courses with Bucks Fizz to start with (well similar) - excellent - just love it here and cannot get enough of their amazing Thai food

We booked after reading some great reviews. We had various starters and a main course each. Both courses were very good. The food was fresh and enjoyable. Unfortunately the service was poor throughout. Once the order was taken, the service was rushed. Drinks and food were placed on the table with few words or interaction with the various staff. When...

We came here on our first visit to the area as a couple about 5 years ago and it was almost as we remembered. Great service, tasty food that seems freshly prepared and a fantastic experience. The only negatives are that you must book ahead and the food is quite expensive (more so than last time) but certainly not unusual... More

Had a great experience here! Service was spot on throughout the evening, very prompt and helpful. Everything we ordered was delicious. My dad often struggles to find good, varied vegetarian food, but here there were plenty of choices. £90 for 4 of us, including a round of drinks and pudding. We felt it was a fair price for a delicious... More

Right from the outset the warm and friendly welcome made us feel at home. We were shown to our tables and the very nice table waiter guided us through the menu. The starters arrived and were piper hot and full of flavour. The main courses were tremendous- never tasted Thai food so fresh and flavoursome. Probably the best Thai food... More

Managed to grab a table 2 without booking at this popular restuarant in central Ambleside. Exceptional service coupled with authentic cooking makes this place one to recommend. The atmosphere is laid back friendly and casual and not overly priced for this tourist trap. Will be back

Thai is the new French. Unfortunately, that often means "Cordon Bleu" Not the case here - it's real Thai food. This building has gone through so many incarnations over the years - but this one has stuck for longer than most in living memory - and there's a reason for it. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable, and the cooking... More
