We went to this highly rated cafe on a Monday Evening. Of course the Arcade was shut when we arrived so we had to walk round from the main street to the car park at the back. The church was fascinating and obviously a community hub! There were only four other people eating in and a couple of people for... More

This is a small restaurant found in Devonshire Arcade beside the George Hotel in Penrith. Warm welcome and freshly made food. Open kitchen so you can see meal being prepared. Food well presented. Restaurant very clean. Bottled alcohol available.

It's excellent. It's all cooked to order, fresh, spiciness is adjusted to your preference. Not huge portions so we have a soup or salad for a starter....which makes it even better (if slightly more expensive). Go there!

Excelent service, quick and polite. Good quality food, very fresh and tasty. The two soups we had tasted great, and the hot one, was hot - so be careful what you ask for! The mains were also good, very tasty and fresh. Excelent meal.

This is a small restaurant with fixed tables and benches, the sort you have in fast food outlets. It is not a romantic sort of restaurant but the quality of food really makes up for what it loses in ambience. The food is a high quality, although not massive portions.

We popped out for a quick tea, got it at 8:50 and we didn't know it closed at 9pm but they were more than happy to accommodate us. Been a couple of times before and never disappointed. Mixed starter to share was yummy and we both had chicken Thai green which was devine! Definitely go back. Excellent food and service.... More

Good Food and service in a clean environment. They are situated at the end of the Arcade but you can get access to the restaurant via the back of the building when the Arcade closes

went with two adults and one child, great food, good size portions and tremendous value for money. Small amount of tables so book in advance and nothing fancy inside but don't let that put you off. If you like good thai food then give it a try.

We thought at first that this restaurant was closed in the evening as the arcade it's in was closed up. Luckily we discovered the next day that there is an entrance round the back of the arcade so returned that evening for a tasty meal that was good value with excellent service
