Collected our meal after a busy day walking & boating. We were all quite hungry & were very excited to get back and enjoy our food. The food was packed inside the standard size takeaway plastic boxes, but within the boxes a smallish portion of rice was wrapped in cling film, approximately half filling the container. The other food portions... More

There's no law saying that restaurant staff have to come from the place represented by the food they're serving. But the lack of any Thai staff these days (front of house, at least) does rob it of some of its former authenticity. Of more concern was the bill. The food was fine, although one of our two mains was the... More

4 of us had a 2 course meal from the pre-theatre menu, all of which was delicious. Very satisfying as well as tasty. I would recommend this restaurant.

We had a very nice Thai meal there. The waiter got my wife's order wrong (a different chicken dish), but other than that service was good. The Thai crackers were very generous in portion size and the food was tasty and well presented. Both Thai's in Ambleside are equally good.

The Jintana is a great Thai restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful meal experience. Great service and a reasonable priced meal in a good location opposite the cinema.

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...
