“Left standing at the door”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012 via mobile

I tried to eat here while shopping in carlisle. We opted not to go for dinner because they don't serve wine and you can't byob. I was alone and asked to sit at the empty counter even though tables where available. When I said I didn't want to sit at the counter, the waitress left me standing at the door. After a couple of minutes I left and had a nice lunch at a table at amy's Thai. Don't go here alone.

“16 yr old says 'it made my stomach happy!'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 via mobile

this place gets crowded, and for good reason. The noodle bowls are flavorful and the service is excellent. Best value for quality food in Carlisle!

“A MUST for dinner anytime you're at the Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

I must agree with all of the posters, that this place has it all. Great value, great service, you'll get your meals very quickly, and most importantly, it's all fresh and delicious. Anytime I'm taking in a show at the Carlisle Theatre, just a few doors down, I always enjoy a wonderful meal at Issei! If you haven't been there yet, make sure to check it out. You won't be disappointed.

“delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

My husband and I travel back and forth across the PA turnpike frequently. We were staying overnight in Carlisle and decided to try this place based on the trip advisor reviews. They are spot on. We loved it. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was attractive, and the prices were very reasonable. The waitress was very helpful. We eat Asian cuisine often, but this place will become a new favorite. It is only a few miles off the highway and quite convenient, although parking can be a problem as it on street. The restaurant is only open a few hours for lunch and then again a few hours in the evening for dinner so dine early or call to make sure of hours. When your meal is finished, go right next door to Helen's chocolate cafe and crepery for desert. Try the chocolate raspberry crepes - Yummy!
