“This Thai restaurant should have 6 stars!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

this is the second time I have visited 'Jintana' in Kendal (Not in the same week of course...) and I was just as impressed.
I am no expert when it comes to Thai food but this appears to be as authentic as it gets.
We had the vegetarian platter to start, fabulous, well cooked lightly battered vegetables in tempura batter with excellent dipping sauces.
The 'Larb Gai' salad , minced chicken with ginger and mint was the best I have ever had, fabulous taste.
Also had the Thai red chicken, very creamy and coconutty (if that's a real word ), my wife had the sizzling chicken with ginger and vegetables, very good indeed with a sweet sticky sauce once the sizzling had stopped.
It's not the cheapest in the world, but we knew that when we went in.
Staff also were attentive and polite, and everyone was brought a little free taster to start with .....not sure what it was but I think it was crispy rice thingy.....just great.
Plenty of food, and I assure you, I can eat !
Please try here, I would go back tomorrow....( I still have a few days of my break left so I might just do that)
