Tasty food

Our party of 4 all really enjoyed our meals there. The staff are very attentive, efficient and polite. I'd definitely recommend the paneer Karachi, which wasn't on the menu but they made it on my request. Excellent value too!

This is my first overnight stay in Carlisle and I had great plans to find a Thai restaurant I had been told about. Fortunately the weather is awful and I can't face another wet walk into town, so after a quick check on the TripAdvisor app I've ended up here (a couple of hundred metres from where I'm staying).

Yet again a fantastic meal at this restaurant, the place has been in operation for over thirty years and is still producing the goods. We visited as a group of four and not one of the group were disapointed with their meal which was outstanding with particular reference to the Chingri Moshla. Efficient and friendly service and nothing is to... More

Visited as we were staying overnight in a nearby guesthouse. Arrived without booking and given a warm welcome. Decor quite old fashioned but I actually really like this. It was very clean. Service excellent and friendly with minimum waiting times. 3 of us dining, we all had different meals and all were lovely with good sized portions at a reasonable... More

Last time we visited this restaurant was a few years ago, we didn't find it over exciting so have never bothered going back. It is our 'local' however and a couple of weeks ago we decided to try it again. It was very good indeed. Very tasty food, served sizzling hot, in fact lava hot, good portions, good service. Nothing... More

The service was good and friendly. The quality and presentation of the food was very good and it was inexpensive and very good value. I disagree entirely with another reviewer's comments about the poppadoms as ours were very good as were the chutneys etc served with them. The portion sizes were good too - we were unable to finish all... More

Very friendly welcome. Huge choice of menu and excellent food well served. Not some where you would go without a recommendation as above some shops on a main road but well worth finding.

Arrived at 6.30, thinking we might be the only customers but got to the top of the stairs to find quite a few waiting for a table. They are superbly efficient though. There is a big seating area, where they serve your drink of choice while you peruse the menu., and order. When a table is free, the waiter takes... More

Returning to Carlisle after several years absence - good to see that this unassuming restaurant is still popular and still serving good food.
