This is our favourite restaurant in Penrith, we often pop in and pick something up from here at the weekend. The food is always delicious and fresh tasting, I can highly recommend the duck salad, it's so tasty with lime, chilli and coriander.
We've also eaten in, it's lovely and clean and the service was really friendly.
There isn't a huge amount of space if you have a big party, and the seating is in little booths for 4, but it's great if you're a family or couple out for a cosy dinner. Handy parking right outside the door at night, but a bit of a struggle parking during the day.

Our first visit tonight to the restaurant. We live near Penrith and have been meaning to visit. The food was excellent and there was plenty in each serving. We had the mixed starters, followed by sticky rice and two beef dishes (peanut one and a ginger one). They were both delicious.

Highly recommend visiting here for Thai. The service was great and the food excellent and fresh.

Thai food cafe serves up some of the best Thai food I've had this side of Thailand...it's quite a small little place but it's clean and homely and the service is great. Highly recommended if you're passing through Penrith

Visited here on our way down the M6 on a Thursday evening, as others have mentioned it's very handy if you fancy something a bit better than most service station food.

The Thai food cafe is situated close to the centre of town and we quickly found a parking spot. The restaurant is within a shopping centre but also has it's own entrance for access when the centre is closed.

As has been mentioned it's on the small side, 6 tables all in, but it's very clean and cosy. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and the selection of drinks was impressive.

Now for the food, prawn toast and spring rolls with dip were very nice but the fishcakes were a bit disappointing. They were more like a sausage patty than what I know as a fishcake. As for the mains, they were spectacular! Everything tasted so fresh and the sauces were full of flavour despite appearing runny. Sticky rice and noodles on the side which soaked up all the tasty sauces perfectly. Clear plates all round.

We're definitely going to visit again and if you're going to be in the area make a point of dropping in.
