Four of us went to the Royal Outpost last night and had a lovely time. The food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. It was not our first visit and it certainly won't be the last

We went here for my daughter's birthday, and had a lovely meal. The menu was interesting and all our choices were very good indeed. The service could have been a little more attentive, not least as we were the only people in the restaurant; and the music was... odd... Nonetheless, I would certainly recommend this as a good place to... More

Its a great place to go for a treat. Easy to miss on the main street, but its definitely worth finding! Service has been a little slow both times I have been, but the food is always absolutely amazing!

From the moment you walk up the stairs to the minute you leave, your looked after. Having only had Thai food a couple of times I was unsure what to choose! The waitress was happy to suggest dishes based on my preference to spicy food & hot food. We all had different starters (party of 6) so we tried each... More

The food here tasted fresh and authentic. The vegetarian spring rolls as a starter were delicate, followed by Massaman vegetarian curry with coconut rice. The flavours were perfectly balanced without being either too hot or overpowering. The service was excellent and the prices reasonable. The only down side is it's location...... it's upstairs in an original Redford Pub complete with... More

Me and my partner ate here and it was simply beautiful. Starter, main and pudding were all delicious. To start we had the tempura prawns which were absolutely beautiful you got just enough for a starter not too little and not too many. They came with a very tasty sweet chilli dip. We both chose off the malaysian section off... More

Really enjoyed the Food and service......but the music drove me out of the restaurant. Modern thumpy type music in a traditional Thai environment would prevent me returning. I mentioned to the staff and they just agreed with me ! Great Red Beef Curry was very fresh and tasty

Unfamiliar with Thai and Malaysian food but the staff were so helpful with choosing. Advising not to order too much but making sure we had a varied menu. The food was so fresh and tasty and the service excellent. Carlisle is lucky to have this place. Wish I lived closer.
