“It felt like being back in Thailand but obviously not as cheap”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

My wife and I visited this restaurant whilst enjoying a weekend in the Lakes. The food was fantastic and authentic. It is in a nice location in the middle of Bowness. The staff could not have been more helpful. It obviously cost a lot more than the same meal in Bangkok, Phuket or Chiang Mai but it was delicious and good value considering English prices. We would go there every week if it was nearer our home.

“Better than we expected”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

foods actually quite good, better than we expected really. ordered Thai Green chicken curry as we will know if it is good & wasnt disappointed, sauce was cream & tasty. PAD KEE MAO turn out to be quite different, not bad but not the real traditional noodles dish you get. NAM TOK MOO was really nice & deliciously tasty with a bit of sour tarmari sauce to make it really yummy so as the sticky rice which we dont see it in many Thai restaurant even in London. Ambience is ok, typical Thai deco & staff were friendly & welcoming. Price reasonable too & if we up in Windermere again will go back if we fancy a Thai food fix.

“Family dinner”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

We took out two 9 year olds here and they loved it. We go whenever we're in Bowness and we're never disappointed. The food is consistently of a high standard. The service is always prompt and helpful with suggestions for the children. A wonderful addition to the selection of restaurants in the village.

“Nice and spicy!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on a whim one evening without making a reservation. Although we were lucky enough to get a table it has to be said that the front of house waitress could have been friendlier. However this is the only negative comment as he food was delicious!

For starters we had a papaya salad which was fresh and a spicy fish soup. Both of which we would highly recommend. For our main course we shared a rice dish which was ample and ordered two curries. We would recommend the chicken yellow curry as this was creamy and delicious. We also ordered a pork jungle curry. This was tasty but rather watery, a bit like a soup.

The price was reasonable and we would visit this restaurant again if in the area.
