I had the jungle curry on my last visit, AMAZING if you like spicy food. But even if you don't the waitress said the spice level can be changed to your preference. The waiting staff... More

Best Thai restaurant in town. Been a number of times now and it never lets you down. The staff are alway smiling and are happy to help and also to give you advise on places to visit when in Thailand which is great. Will be back again soon hopefully.

My mum and I called in for a meal here tonight. We had the special set menu between us. The food was lovely, the fishcakes, prawns and ruen Thai duck in particular were superb and the sweet chilli fish and prawn green curry were excellent. They were very amenable with altering dishes for my allergy and the staff were excellent,... More

I've been here quite a few times whilst staying in Carlisle on business. Taking customers to this restaurant we are never disappointed. The food is excellent and plenty of it! The spicy soup is really hot! If you like Thai food this one is for you!

My grandparents have often visited this restaurant and have never had a bad meal. I have since been with them on a number of occasions and can confirm the standards are always high and the food is delicious on every occasion. The starters are beautiful and the main meals are even better. It is often hard to find something to... More

Hidden gem of a restaurant, with proper tasty Thai food. The staff were helpful and friendly and even brought out a surprise vianetta with candles as it was our birthday! Highly recommend to anyone who loves Thai food or wanting to try it.

Stairs are fairly steep but once you are inside the decor is good and the staff welcoming. Having recently visited Bangkok, we found the food authentic and very good. The set meal for two was a good choice but you needed to be very hungry to finish it. We would certainly visit again.
