We were dubious despite the TA reviews as this doesn't look like a traditional restaurant but we needn't have worried. Greeted at the door where the owner took our wine (its BYO) we were seated in the lovely (I would imagine) former front room of the house.

The table setting was beautiful and I soon saw there were plenty of vegetarian choices. Both of us had great food, and even went for a desert, I had a thai desert which was different but nice.

Will visit again if in area.

My husband and I went to Keswick for a couple of nights and beforehand had highlighted Shemera as a possible place to eat on the Friday evening. We luckily managed to book a table and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere is friendly and service is attentive, but not overbearing. You take your own wine/beer and just pay a corkage, so you can choose your favourite wine to take with you and it doesn't cost a fortune as in other restaurants. The menu choices are fabulous and we could have chosen at least 4 starters and mains each! The food is superb - so tasty and fresh and served with attention to detail. It isn't what you would call a plush fancy restaurant but you feel as if you are having a 'comfy meal' in a friends home. Make sure you book as they only serve 6pm-8pm but it is well worth making an effort to go.

Went to Shemara for a birthday dinner, fab Thai food...the real deal! This is a family run Guest House with Thai restaurant and you can be sure of attentive service from Richard, Fon,& Nancy with help from Jasmine!. Lovely food and atmosphere. It is very popular and you do have to book and take your own wine/beer...even if you can't get in first time keep trying as it's well worth it!!
