We have vistited this resturant twice in the past year and both times the food has been amazing with large portions. Each time we have ordered takeaway so can't comment on the resturant itself. Both times we pre ordered the food as were advised of a time that it would be ready for collection, we waited over 30 minutes after... More

This is my first review on Trip Advisor but felt it appropriate Thai is both mine and my husbands favourite food so whilst on a trip to the Lakes to celebrate a birthday, here was a must. The restaurant was quite nicely done out. We ordered and the food arrived quite quickly. This is when it went downhill. The food... More

I have previously given a good review for this restaurant, however things have changed. Today we have had a terrible lunch experience, especially as we were looking forward to returning:- 1) There was a constant smell of cigarette smoke! (think coming in from a back door) 2) The food was really bland 3) When I questioned an incorrect price of... More

I ordered a takeaway at 7.20pm for collection at 8.30pm. Wasn't ready until 8.50pm. This was not acceptable. As well as this the food was quite bland, and not really value for money. I shall not return or recommend.

Thai is mine and my partners favourite food so on a visit to the lakes we decided to head to the star of siam for a meal having looked on trip advisor for some guidance. The reviews weren't great however, we decided to give it a try and we weren't disappointed. The food was very tasty and fresh, and the... More

Thai food really is my favorite and I've eaten in a lot of Thai restaurants. Me and my partner were in Keswick last week and went to the Star of Siam for dinner. The atmosphere inside is lovely, relaxed and tastefully decorated. We ordered the platter for two to start and all of the food was excellent. My partner v... More

I've been here twice now and the first time it was pretty good. However, on my second visit this weekend I was not impressed at all. My friends meals were adequate, but my meal was terrible. I had the volcano chicken which is supposed to be flambéed in front of you. Firstly, the guy couldn't get his lighter to light... More

This was our first trip to this restaurant and although the service was reasonably good, the food was not the best. The portion sizes left a lot to be desired, the chicken in my jungle curry was dry and chewy, and although the sauce was very good, overall I wasn't impressed.
