Ate there three nights in a row (out of a three night stay) which will tell you something about how much we enjoyed this place. It's not plush, or fancy, or fantastic. The service isn't top notch, and the portions aren't the biggest or the best I've ever had. But you know what, it does everything right! The Green Curry... More

This was a second visit to the Ambleside branch. They have a good menu and we took advantage of the Early Evening Menu deal. The corn fritters, pad thai and green curry were all very tasty.

This is the Thai opposite Zefferelli's cinema so easy peasy to find and park round about. Really thought through decor and gentle environment, plus there's also an option for those low tables if you're ones for sitting on floor level chairs Thai style - not me but a nice touch all the same. Faultless Thai green curry (my staple Thai)... More

Very good selection of starters & mains. Usual choice of choice of drinks, with the wine of choice being very good. Starters were very well presented and tasted as good as they looked. Excellent mains, with very good service. Very enjoyable evening.

We visited on a Friday evening. Booked a table for 2, with no problems whilst driving up after finishing work. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lots to choose from on the menu. Both meals were excellent. We will visit again.

Booked table and glad we had as restaurant was very busy. Friendly stay took our order and drinks arrived quickly. About right length of time starters arrived and were very tasty. Our main course was served promptly. Food seemed fresh and portion size generous. Plenty of staff who served very efficiently. All in all a good choice

Greeted by friendly staff, which is a bonus and shown to our table. Quick to take your order. Food very a delight to look at never mind eat. The taste of each ingredient came through in every meal. 4 of us had different meals and were not disappointed at all. The menu is very concise but offers plenty of choices,... More
