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 early 2020 our business took another path as we opened our Thai cafe in Kendal, serving traditional Thai food.
Our Thai cafe at Yard 2, Stramongate caters for eat in meals during the week from 9am – 4pm (Wed – Sat).

From March 2020 we decided to run Unit 6 for takeaways only on Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings, while still using it for storage and ‘prep’ for our outdoor events, 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 up, we will bring out your order, drive 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 Thursday morning by going to our menu, choose your dishes, call us on 07768 808249. We will give you a time to collect. Leave your telephone number and car registration and we will send you a link for payment from your phone.

If you prefer not to pre-order then you can call 07768 808249 and place your order when we are open at 4pm. Thank you.


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 on Thursday, Friday & Saturday each week from 4pm – 9pm.

The cafe is situated north of Kendal at Unit 6, Dockray Hall Mill (LA9 4RU), recreates the ambience of streetfood cafes found around Thailand.

Our new Thai cafe at Yard 2, Stramongate. Kendal (previously ‘Red Door Kitchen’) will soon be open for meals, but not takeaways.
