Visited Friday lunch time, we enjoyed a sharing platter, which the veg and the prawns tasted so fresh. I then had the 'Waterfall Pork' dish which was so authentically Thai in flavour, chilli, ginger and spring onions. I have only put 'very good' instead of excellent as the some of the pork was a little dry, but everything else was so excellent that I am still happy to recommend. Will be going back when I am in Ambleside again.

We had a masaman veg curry and a Penang style chicken dish. Both were delicious and authentically Thai. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Even got some free nibbles before our meal arrived! This was the second time we'd eaten here and each time the standard was very high. Speaking to other locals, this place has a great reputation.

Have been visiting this part of the lake district for many years. Unlike many of the restaurants in Ambleside, this place did not disappoint. We spent a very relaxing evening, all had the seafood set menu. Great service, friendly staff, good food, nice ambiance. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys Thai food.

We've been visiting Ambleside for many years but for some unexplained reason we've never tried Jintana, until this month - and quickly realised what we'd been missing! Okay, the frontage is no big shakes, given the impression of a postage stamp interior, but it's actually pretty spacious. Service was friendly, prompt and accommodating, even though the restaurant was very busy, and the menu had a really varied selection of dishes. We shared the mixed platter starter, which was delicious. The mains were suitably spicy, without trying to vaporise your taste buds. The wine list didn't disappoint, and was decently priced. We'll definitely be returning.

Called in for a quick lunch with my husband. Had the lunchtime special menu which is excellent value for money. We both like a spicy dish and so went for the Thai salads for starters and were not disappointed. Flavours were beautiful with lots of heat. Curry for main course which was also lovely. Would recommend Jintana to anyone who enjoys Thai food and will definitely come back on our next trip to the lakes.
