Thai Takeaway in Kendal (Our Story)
Welcome To Unit 6
It is amazing what can happen within a few years. What began in February 2018 as a unit for storage and food preparation soon became a small streetfood cafe.
We cooked Thai meals by the street on our little market stall – the one we use for events and shows around Cumbria – and catered for workers on the industrial estate Tuesday, Thursday and Friday lunchtimes.
By July demand had grown for our food, so we closed on Tuesday and opened every Thursday from 12 until 9. Then, by October we were also cooking on Fridays.
The concept of developing a streetfood cafe began to evolve, and by February 2019 we had installed a wok cooker and developed the unit into an open kitchen, where customers can watch their meals being cooked.
In 2020 our business took another direction when we opened our ‘Thai Cafe in Kendal’.
This was re-branded in the spring of 2021 and has now established its own identity as the ‘Khao Soi Thai Cafe‘ serving tapas-style traditional Thai food, inspired by dishes from grass-roots Thai cuisine.
From March 2020 during the COVID-19 restrictions, and to keep our customers safe, we developed Kendal’s only ‘Drive-Thru’ Thai takeaway at Unit 6 on Dockray Hall. From 2021 we increased our opening days and now serve food from Wednesday to Saturday evenings 5-9pm – and so was born our Thai takeaway in Kendal.
How it Works (Drive-Thru Takeaway)
During COVID-19 we are operating a ZERO CONTACT ‘Drive-Thru’ system. When you collect (drive or walk), we will bring out your order to you, for you to take home and enjoy your meal.
All our food is cooked fresh, we do not pre-cook any meals, so this limits the number of dishes we can prepare each evening. Therefore, it is advisable to pre-order your meals.
You can pre-order from Tuesday morning by going to our menu, choose your dishes, call us on 07768 808249 or email. We will give you a time to collect.
Leave your telephone number and car registration and we will send a link for payment to your phone.
If you prefer not to pre-order then you can call 07768 808249 and place your order when we are open.
Presently, on Friday and Saturday, because of lockdown, we are exceptionally busy and you may experience a delay in receiving your meal. We try to keep this delay to 15 minutes, please accept our apologies for this. If there is a delay you will receive a text message informing you of this. Thank you.
แกงเขียวหวาน (Gaeng Keow Waan) Green Curry is synonymous with Thailand. Hot, spicy, full of flavour. Deliciously cooked in coconut milk. Exciting with eggplants. Its distinctive aromas are a delight.
Tom Yum Soup
Our Thai takeaway in Kendal is open from Wednesday to Saturday each week from 5pm – 9pm.
The cafe is situated north of Kendal at Unit 6, Dockray Hall Mill (LA9 4RU), and is COVID secure operating as a ‘drive-thru’ takeaway.

Popular This Week
Pad Tom Gratiem (Wild Garlic Stir Fry)
This fantastic seasonal dish, made with wild garlic locally foraged, is stir-fried in Amporn’s delicious homemade stir-fry sauce, with basil, garlic, chilli, belly pork. Generally, chefs use the leaves for their dishes, but for our stir fry we wait until just before the flowers appear, and use the sweet young stems, chopped and mixed with chilli and garlic (as if there wasn’t enough!).
“The food was delicious and lovely and hot, the spring rolls were the best I’ve ever had and not greasy at all and the mains had just the right mix of fresh veg and herbs and spice. Our online message was answered promptly and the ordering, payment and pickup was very organised and easy to use.“
“Amazing Every Time!”
“We have been here often and have yet to be disappointed with either food or service. Friendly and very efficient. Highly recommend and thank you for making our experiences of eating the meals you prepare, memorable every time we visit😋 “
“Best Takeaway Ever”
“I called up after a recommendation and I was told they were fully booked until 8.30. The owner managed to help me out and squeeze 3 delicious meals in at 4pm, they were outstanding. I have eaten a lot of Thais in the area & all round the world and this is one of the best !
Thank you very much we will be back soon :)”
“This is one of the best Thais I’ve ever had. The thought and care that went into the cooking of these dishes showed through ever dish. A slice of Thailand in Kendal. Will be coming back again and again. The corn fritters were just something else!”
