The atmosphere is OK and the service is friendly. We hadn't booked but as we expected in December that was not a problem. We both ordered red duck curry and it was brought quite quickly. It was disappointing - quite watery (I have seen other reviews saying the same thing) and it included pineapple, cherry tomatoes and - a little odd I thought - grapes.
Two nights later we went to the other Thai in Ambleside, Jintana, and had much better red duck curry.

We visited here with friends, the staff are friendly and welcoming, it has a very relaxed atmosphere. Hot & sour soup was really good, all of the dishes were well spiced and good and the portions sizes are good. We had green curry dishes, beef dishes, noodles, prawn dishes, so we had a good selection to try and we were pleased with all the choices.

They also have a really nice thai beer which went down a treat.

Oh dear,i have just read all the amazing reviews on tripadvisor of this restaurant and im thinking did we go to the same place because we ate there on 27/11/12 and it was only average at best.To be fair the duck spring rolls were lovely but my green curry was tasteless and the sauce was like water.My wifes chicken noodle dish was so salty she struggled to eat it.We had a bottle of white wine and a jug of water and there wasnt much difference between the two in taste.The worse thing is we ate there quite a few years ago and it was very good but we were very disappointed on our second visit.I know people will say why didnt you complain but not everyone feels comfortable in complaining in a busy restaurant drawing attention to themselves and I know this review goes against most of the other ones but i have to be honest and say how it was.
