“Hot & Spicy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

My daughter and I popped in for a quick meal as we only had an hour to spare. We were shocked at how busy it was but were glad that they still had a table free and could squeeze us in. We both chose quickly and glad that our curries were served quickly as time was against us. Both were delicious, full of flavour, hot and spicy. We paid and were out within 45minutes. Next time we are in Keswick we'll be back hopefully with more time on our hands.

“Nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

We chose to eat here after not feeling like pub food or Italian that seems to be all around the town. The service was slow at times, and we had to ask a waitress multiple times for things - although it as quite busy. We shared chicken satay starter which was tasty. We then shared 2 mains - beef pad se ew and chicken khaprad. Both we very tasty, lots of vegetables which I like - although the dishes could have been a but warmer (temperature not chili!). Overall an enjoyable Thai meal and a change from usual UK pub food.

“Okay, but that's all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We have many Asian restaurants in Australia and we are used to the blast of flavor that fresh herbs and spicy sauces deliver to Thai cuisine. This was missing from our meals last night. Where was the lemon grass and basil, the fresh chillis and fish sauce? The meat in my wife’s Krapow was also pretty tough and my prawn won-tons weren’t – they were pork. The service was pretty ordinary too. For example our waitress apologized for not opening our bottled water because she said she was ‘too busy’. When the man at the adjacent table asked her for a menu, she said she would bring it "when I get around to it’. She shouted at another group who asked when their meals were coming.
Unless you are keen for something that resembles Thai food, I’d give it a miss.
