Fantastic food with lots of variety. Great ribs for starters. Booking essential to avoid disappointment. Parking available opposite with local bars and shops. Lovely old Market Place sadly no longer a market.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Had looked on trip advisor for places to eat as on holiday in Cockermouth. It has put my faith back in Chinese food. Just disappointed it is so far away from home. We just turned up at about 5.20pm on a Tues. There were quite a few diners in so I think that says something... More

Didn't book a table as we were heading out early on a Thursday evening but we only just managed to get a table for four as they were busy. I can see why as the food was excellent whether it was from the Thai or Chinese menu. Staff were efficient and friendly.Will be back

Booked this meal at short notice for an unexpected celebration. The staff were welcoming and showed us to our table almost immediately. We settled on the Thai banquet for two, which was delicious with a wide variety of food which was far in excess of what we could eat at the time. As the restaurant is also a takeaway, our... More

Good menu, great food and service. Had a good laugh with staff when they gave us a bill for £50 less than should be in error.
