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 Tuesday to Saturday evenings 5-9pm – and so was born our Thai takeaway in Kendal.

How it Works (Drive-Thru Takeaway)

We operate an adapted drive-thru system. This operation developed through the COVID lockdown, and even though this has now eased, the system proved so popular with our customers that we have decided to continue with it.

We are open from 5pm – 9pm Tuesday to Saturday. It is advisable to pre-order whenever possible by email or text (07768 808249) after choosing your dishes from our menu.  All our food is cooked fresh, we do not pre-cook any meals, so this limits the number of dishes we can serve each evening.

If you prefer not to pre-order then you can contact us during opening hours (5-9pm) to place your order, although at busy times we cannot guarantee your preferred collection time. Walk-ins are welcome although we cannot guarantee to serve you immediately.
When we are busy we try to keep waiting times for collection to a maximum of 15 minutes. Recently we have been max’d out on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Once you have received your collection slot, drive or walk to collect and we will bring your order out to you. You can pay by card or cash, and take home to enjoy your meal. 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 from Tuesday to Saturday each week from 5pm – 9pm.

The takeaway is situated north of Kendal at Unit 6, Dockray Hall Mill (LA9 4RU).

Orders can be placed by phone or email to receive a collection time.
