This is by far the best restaurant in the kendal area. Such a shame it got flooded in December. We will be back as soon as it re-opens in May.

This was a very last minute decision to dine out following a long busy day and once again we were not disappointed with our meal. It was lovely. The starters pork on sesame toast and the Thai fish cakes were delicious as was our main course. We left the restaurant feeling totally relaxed and refreshed - just what was needed.

This was the best Thai food we've had. I had the Chu Chee Pla with Sea Bass and the taste was outstanding. My wife had Chicken Pad Khing which she also loved. Service was very good and staff friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Starters were fine, but we ordered a red Thai curry and green Thai curry, there was too much hot watery soup like ingredients. The egg fried rice was too sticky. The portions are very generous, and we could have had fewer portions of rice and one between two of the main courses. The staff were very nice and helpful. The... More

We just squeezed in for an early table on this very busy November weekend. Although we had to leave before 8pm we had ample time to have starters and main. We have been here several times before. Sweetcorn fritters and tempura vegetables good, followed by veggie & tofu stir-fry with green coconut sauce. Nice to have tofu aswell as vegetables.... More

Very good quality Thai restaurant, excellent service, you are not rushed the table is yours for the night. We had read about it on Trip Advisor and thought we would like it and we were definitely not disappointed.
