“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We went for the set meal for two, a nice selection and a very nice hot green Thai curry. Service was very friendly, always with a smile. Food served quickly, each course following the other with minimal waiting time.

“FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

We stayed in Bowness for a week starting the 3rd November. We visited Jintana on Wednesday, the atmosphere was wonderful and the service excellent, the food was so tasty and the best Thai food I have ever tasted. We liked it that much we visited again on Thursday and Friday night. All credit to the chef and wonderful friendly staff.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

We ate at Jintana on a Wednesday and the place was pretty packed. We were lucky enough to get a table with a walk in but I'd recommend calling ahead to make a booking.

The food was excellent, very tasty and some of the best Thai food I have had in the UK. Service is nice and friendly. We'll certainly return on our next visit to the area.

“Excellent food and service again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

We ate here when we were staying in Bowness last year and enjoyed it so much that we booked a table again and ended up eating at Jintana twice this time during our stay in Bowness. We really enjoy Thai food and find the food they served here is of an excellent standard. I think booking would be highly recommended at a weekend but we when we went back mid-week in November we got a table easily without booking. The service is nice, understated and they don’t rush you. My husband particularly enjoyed the weeping tiger sizzling steak and I had the red mullet in ginger and red chilli which was spicy but not too hot. We just shared some Thai crackers to start which were lovely and found that 1 rice was plenty for us to share with our mains as portions are quite big. We had a very enjoyable meal so much so we went back a few days later on our last night of our holiday. If you like Thai food I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant as the food and service is good and I wouldn’t say it is anymore pricey than the other restaurants in Bowness. We will definitely go back when visiting Bowness again.
