A delightfully warm welcome in a beautifully presented and tastefully decorated dining room. It was a pleasure to eat such delicious, authentic and lovingly prepared Thai food. We chatted to the owner and his wife to ensure that our next intended visit does not coincide with their family trip to Thailand. Can't wait to go back.

Superb, a warm friendly welcome, excellent authentic Thai food, the chef even comes out for a chat. If you're in the lake district, don't miss this gem, book your table well in advance!

Wow - The food is fresh, delicious, hot and tasty with great service by Richard. The B&B is not licenced so you can take your own drinks ( a minimal corkage charge). I met 2 friends for dinner and cannot rave enough about the food - we all agreed it was one of the best meals we have ever eaten.... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal of crab cakes and spring rolls, Thai green curry and a fish and prawn dish with jasmine rice. This was followed by mango and sticky rice pancake and rice balls with sesame, peanut and red bean paste, unusual and very tasty deserts. Will definitely return.

This dining experience puts others to shame! All food is cooked fresh and the flavours are like no other, the owners are so passionate about their food that this restaurant cannot be compared to other 'chain' restaurants. They cater to individual needs where spice is concerned and the result is magical. I ordered a fish dish, expecting a small fillet... More
