“Thank goodness for Tripadvisor as we would never have found this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

As this was rated the 2nd best restaurant in Keswick we thought we would give it a good and were intrigued that it was the front room of a Guest House! The room was so beautifully Thai. We don't usually have starters but as this was part of the deal, we did. I enjoyed the spring roll but didn't eat the second one to leave room for my mains. My husband did not like the consistency of the crab fish cakes although he ate both of them! However the main courses were fantastic and we finished off everything set before us! The service was without fault. We felt as if we had been invited by the family to dinner. Every enjoyable and would definitely recommend.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We ate here mid week in late June and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We bought chilled wine and beer from the off licence in St John's Street, quite close by - the corkage was £3 per bottle of wine and £0.75 per bottle of beer from what I recall. The food was amazing - really high quality; we had a fish special, pad thai, red curry and it was all delicious and served with charm and the personal touch so often missing from more conventional restaurants. We visited last year when in Keswick and I'm sure we'll return again in the future.

“Small restaurant but big heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Just been to this small restaurant over the weekend 6 tables only we booked over the Internet which was easy and the restaurant replied quickly to my email sent. The staff greeted at the door as soon as we arrived could not fault the service or the meal the food was good and the atmosphere was authentic would certainly return .

“Delightful small restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Booked in advance for this small restaurant in a guesthouse. It is BYOB so I bought a chilled bottle of beer from Booths supermarket, the Co-op which is nearer does not sell chilled beer or wine. The pork spring rolls were some of the best I have ever tasted and the salmon and prawn red curry was excellent also. The food is all fresh and cooked to order. I shall revisit this restaurant when I am in the area again.

“Best Spring Rolls ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We decided to try here after reading all the reviews and were not disappointed. A querky location in the dining room of the guest house and just added to the charm. With awarm welcome, the service was outstanding, as was the food (especially the vegetable spring rolls). Looking forward to our next trip to Keswick!
