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 established its own identity as the Khao Soi Thai Cafe‘ serving tapas-style traditional Thai food, inspired by dishes from grass-roots Thai cuisine. At the moment this cafe is closed. We may reopen in the future should we find suitable premises.

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)

We operate a ZERO CONTACT ‘Drive-Thru’ system. This operation developed through the COVID lockdown, and even though this has now eased we are continuing to be prudent and continuing with this 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 whenever possible.

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. Drive or walk to collect, pay by card, take home, and enjoy your meal
If you prefer not to pre-order then you can call 07768 808249 and place your order when we are open, although at busy times you may have to wait longer


Chicken Satay

ไก่สะเต๊ะ (gài sà-dté) These succulent pieces of chicken, skewered on a bamboo stick, are tempting enough. Dip into the satay sauce, twirl the chicken around, and eat. It is a flavour you will not forget.


Green Curry

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

ต้มยำ (Tom Yum) There are many things to remember Thailand for – this dish you will never forget. It is synonymous with Thai culture. Fantastic with mushrooms, amazing with chicken. Superb with big king prawns.


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.

A dish of Laap, a spicy Thai salad with minced pork, ground rice, mint and cucumber

Laap (Moo)

ลาบ (laap) Our summer special returns. This traditional northern Thailand salad is just the ticket! Spicy minced pork or mushrooms (vegetarian), seasoned with onions, ground rice, lime, coriander and mint is served chilled. Fantastic with a cold, light beer and a sunny spot in the garden. The mint and the coriander bring out the flavours, best eaten with chinese lettuce leaves and your fingers!


“Fabulous Food”

“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.”

Thank you very much we will be back soon :)”
