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.

Visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening. Was quiet when we arrived quite early on, but was busy by the time we left - obviously a popular place, and I can see why! Bit of a Trip Advisor cliche but we went after reading reviews on here and we definitely weren't disappointed. Shared a meat platter to start - all... More

Never tried Thai food before & wasn't sure they'd be able to accommodate my gluten free diet, as we'd just went in on the off chance. Everything about the place was lovely. Very good service, food, drinks & very relaxing. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

I was passing through Carlisle recently and revisited the Royal Outpost for an evening meal (my husband had noticed some positive reviews on Tripadvisor) and I was pleasantly surprised as what a positive experience we had. The setting is unusual for a Thai/Malaysian restaurant - a very old street frontage and wood panels inside and I'm always a bit suspect... More

The food at this restaurant was absolutely delicious and fairly priced. We were a family of 7 who travelled from Penrith to Carisle which took about 20 minutes - definitely well worth the travel. Between us we had the sizzling steaks, sea bass fish, and prawns which were all cooked to perfection. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Thai... More

My family dined here one Saturday night for my mam's birthday. We ordered the mixed platter for everyone to start and some prawn crackers. The food was delicious but I think one small basket of prawn crackers between six people is not enough and especially when it costs £2 so that was a bit disappointing. It should be a basket... More
