We were standing outside looking at the menu when a couple came along and told us that they had eaten in the restaurant and it is good. We were lucky that a table was free.
the food was excellent and the staff were charming. What more is there to say? We would recommend it if you like Thai food.

This restaurant doesn't deserve any rating. The staff needs a course in basic manners. My family of four-2 adults 2 kids, are in Windermere at the moment. We were craving for any food other than Italian, as our last few meals had been Italian food. Our hostess (of a highly rated tripadvisor b&b in Windermere) said there was a Thai restaurant at Bowness, which we could try out. She made a prior reservation for us, and we were there on time. At Jintana Thai we had to make multiple requests for the menu and for someone to take our order. Finally one waitress came to our table. We asked her what according to her we should try out, she said she dint know what was good, so we stuck to what we had decided and placed our order (1 seafood soup, 1 thai curry, 1 stir fry veg and 2 portions of jasmine rice). She wrote it and said we would need to order more food, as they expect a higher revenue for a family of four. We told her we would look through the menu again and get back. After 10 mins another waitress came by and we told her this is what we wanted to eat, do we need to order more to have a meal here ? She replied, "order more or leave" !! Disgusted with the rude behaviour at this rather sad looking place, we left. I thought I must share this.

For any readers, please take a look at the pictures of our 'dark dingy loft' on this site, our own site or have a look around on our google virtual tour. You will clearly see it is not dark, nor dingy, nor in a loft (it is just on the first floor!).

We dined here last week during a visit to the town. We went early for the fixed price menu as it offered good value for 3 courses. We were not disappointed as the food was absolutely delicious. The Thai green curry is good but VERY HOT. For our sweets we chose the ice cream which surprised us as it came with cream, strawberries, blackberries and wafers, lovely especially as we had the curries earlier. The service here was very good too. We would highly recommend Jintana to anyone. Next time in the area we will definitely go back.

We both love Thai food but have limited access to it in our hometown so always try a Thai meal when away. This was particularly good, with lots of variety on the menu. We had two courses and all was delicious. I also had a mango margarita which I would thoroughly recommend.
