Thai is one of my favourite dishes and I've spent many a year trying to recreate the experience of a Thai meal on my honeymoon over a decade ago. This was the first meal that has come even close; and my wife agreed. The wonderful décor and ambience also made us feel we were somewhere exotic and the red thai... More

Went to the Jintana on our last evening of our stay in Ambleside.  After enjoying the Doi Intanon my wife who is Thai wanted to try other Thai Restaurants in the area.  We entered the restaurant and the waitress was just guiding a party of five to a table.  Nobody else approached us or talked to us we just sat...

First impressions are good because of the attractive, ethnic way the restaurant is decorated. Greeting was friendly and service OK, that at times could have been more attentive. Menu choice was good and the food was good, fresh tasting Thai. Not outstandingly good, but more than acceptable. We would be happy to return.

Our favourite place to eat in Ambleside. Lovely atmosphere, good choice of menus, attentive staff and really tasty food. Price is mid-range. Even though Ambleside wasn't busy the restaurant was, a sign of a good restaurant.

Average food, nice staff, although they could have been a bit more attentive. When our food was served the waitress accidentally poured some green curry into my husbands drink and didn't notice. No harm done but had to ask for another glass and when I told them what had happened they didn't bother to take the dirty glass away, nor... More

Dropped by at short notice and were seated and served by very pleasant team of youngsters who were attentive and courteous. Food was ready in no time and was delicious and varied. It was also inexpensive and in my opinion great value.

There are 2 Thai restaurants in Ambleside, both of good quality. However for us we prefer Jintana. The setting /decor is amazing. A much more interesting and intimate affair. 10/10 customer service. Everyone worked together and it was such a slick operation from arriving to leaving. The waitress we had was bubbly and polite and that in itself can make... More

We are regulars at Jintana in Kendal, so it was good to have the chance to try the Ambleside restaurant. We went early in the evening so it was relatively quiet and we had a very enjoyable meal.

Food was delicious so it's a shame most of the crockery that it was served in were chipped and/or cracked. Busy Saturday night and the staff seemed rushed but the service was good. Ordered the set menu for two which was just the right amount of food and the dishes complimented each other well. I'd eat here again but please... More
