“Really good thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Friendly welcome, good service and really tasty authentic thai food. Reasonably priced and the ability to take your own drink works well (small corkage charge, which is fine).

“fantastic food again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The OH and I ate at shemara again on friday 5th july. Once again the food was fantastic.
We had dropped our wine off earlier in the day for Richard and Fon to put in the fridge for us, and we were shown to our table which was in the window looking over the car park.
We both chose the salmon and prawn fish cakes as our starter. they were gorgeous !!!!
I had the Thai green curry with chicken, Richard asked how i liked it, and i said hot, which i got.
it was exactly how i wanted it. I said to Fon later that her thai green curry is the best that i have eaten anywhere.
Linda loves the Tom Yum goong soup, which she got as her main meal. excellent again !!!

I just wish that we lived nearer, so that we could go more often.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Have stayed at Shemara guesthouse in Keswick before and been very impressed with the hospitality, rooms and breakfasts on offer. Saw that they now serve Thai meals in the evening so just had to give it a try. Very glad I did!

The food was served promptly and very nicely, and was simply delicious. Overall costs were kept reasonable as you take your own alcohol and just pay a small corkage fee, so much cheaper than buying wine by the glass or bottle in a restaurant.

You can book to eat as a resident or non-resident, so I would thoroughly recommend it.

“Thank goodness for Tripadvisor as we would never have found this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
