Great, if a little weird

I was held up at work so we had to move our booking back at short notice which wasn't a problem even though they were quite busy.

We love this little restaurant and its variety of food. We both enjoy Thai food and this is the best we have had in carlisle. Friendly service, great food and very fairly priced. We are regular visitors

The staff were wonderful & as it was a Sunday night barely anyone else was there! We had our 6th anniversary meal - lovely curry for me! - and it was gluten free to boot. Difficult as a coeliac to eat out sometimes - this was not one of those times. Also, to the person who was mad there wasn't... More

We got a platter for two to share and I found it extremely difficult to share 3 prawns on a skewer between 2. The wine was good and very good value for the... More

we shared the meat combination starter which was lovely. My husband had stir fry red curry and I had chicken jungle curry both with singapore noodles and chilli roti. Absolutely fabulous: really spicy and really tasty - we were full but couldn''t stop eating.

What a fantastic place! My cousin recommended we try here so we went the night before her wedding and we were so happy we did! The staff are super friendly and efficient.
