The service was friendly, enjoyed all of it and there were other diners. Slightly out of the town centre but well worth a try

Our B & B suggested this restaurant. We were the only diners. All the food was so good. She gave us an extra appetizer and was so kind and attentive. We had soup and I asked for a chicken dish with lots of vegetables. I think she made it special to please me and I loved it. They do take... More

Noticed it travelling through Penrith , was quiet, very friendly service and possibly the owner advised us on dishes, the food was very tasty, the bill was about £36 for 2 of us with a pint of coke and a pint, only downside i felt it was quite expensive, but clean , friendly and most important nice food

We arrived without booking and were greeted warmly. The restaurant was quiet and well-presented. There is an extensive menu, with a huge choice of both meat and vegetarian options. The food was fabulous! Well cooked and beautifully presented. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and the patron was lovely - she was so friendly and interested in what we had... More

We ate here while on holiday in the area. It was quiet because we arrived early and we were seated immediately. The proprietor greeted us and was really friendly and chatty. Our waitress was polite and efficient. The staff were attentive without hovering and they seemed to cope really well even when it got busy later. The food was absolutely... More

Ordering the take away was hard work the lady couldn't wait to get me off the phone rude, should of known then... More

You can pay London prices in the lake district but the Platinum is the best Chinese food in Cumbria...we had a banquet and sizzling dishes duck and particularly the special fried rice were some of the best dishes we've had....and this place uses all AUTHENTIC ingredients (shitake NOT button etc)

Called here on the way back to our holiday accommodation after a day out. Very quiet (Tuesday night) but we had a lovely welcome and the food was very good. Would definitely recommend.

Don't have a clue how this place has good reviews. If you have any appreciation of good, or even average chinese food then you really won't appreciate this place. Every dish was bland and the meat was dried out, from the spare ribs and king prawns to the chicken, the duck was ok but scarce, and the sauce was pretty... More
