We were dubious despite the TA reviews as this doesn't look like a traditional restaurant but we needn't have worried.

The table setting was beautiful and I soon saw there were plenty of... More

My husband and I went to Keswick for a couple of nights and beforehand had highlighted Shemera as a possible place to eat on the Friday evening. We luckily managed to book a table and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere is friendly and service is attentive, but not overbearing. You take your own wine/beer and just pay a corkage,... More

This is probably one of the nicest Thai meals I have had. The small restaurant is located in a guest house in the centre of Keswick. The owners are very friendly and it was good that you bring your own alcohol. The food was delicious, home made and delightful. I asked for my soup and curry to be made hot... More

Superb food - green curry was the best I think I've had - nice and hot - delicious coconut rice, and lovely starters & drinks. All for under £50. We'll be back.
