“Lovely welcoming atmosphere”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were asked on arrival if we would like to sit in the relaxing seating at the entrance are but we chose to be shown straight to our table.
Drinks a little slow to arrive but after that the service was excellent.
Food delicious.
Will be back.

“Fun and Yum!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We took the kids here for dinner after a great day at the lakes. The decor and atmosphere in the restaurant was fab and fun for the kids. Lovely service and the food was excellent! Hubby loved his very spicy jungle curry and the kids enjoyed sharing the seafood platter starter. My chicken pad Thai was delicious. We would definitely come back next time we are in the area.

“Great staff; ok food”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Ate as part of a big party so chose a mixture of banquets. The staff were very attentive and good fun. However having eaten a lot of Thai food before several of us thought the food was competent but several shortcuts were taken in not sourcing authentic ingredients.

Definitely enjoyed the evening but don't expect the greatest Thai meal.
Definitely had a good evening but

“Our meal on Sat Oct 5th”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is now a firm favourite restaurant to visit when we come to Cumbria. we have been through kendal many times and didn't notice Jintana. It has a small shopfront on the main road through town. The restaurant itself is deceptively big, and we were greeted by friendly staff. We were early so had a drink in the bar. The Tom Yam cocktail is very good! hubby had asahi on draft which was very nice for a lager. The restautant was very busy but we were taken to our table and orders taken swiftly. there was a little wait for our starters but it was worth it for the taste, Tom Ka soup with prawns was singing with lemongrass and had enough heat from chillis, The scallops spicy salad was amazing too. The green curry was as good as, if not better than any i'd had before and hubbies duck and tamaring was very good too. Possibly the only downpoint was the staff were very busy, but this, we were informed was due to someone not showing up to work, so i cant really penalize my review score for that. I would have given 4.5 stars, but very happy to round up to 5 stars and look forward to returning here soon.
