Have been wanting to try this place for ages and finally did today, I'm glad I did.Theres loads of choice, you get loads and was really tasty, they do a loyalty card thing too which is good, it's got a good reputation and it's well deserved , will be back to try more Thai delights

My colleagues and I occasionally treat ourselves to a Thai takeout lunch from here, we've never been disappointed and have tried quite a few of the dishes between us. This week we had chicken satay and a red, yellow and green curry. Delicious. Always served with a smile too.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The food is second to none, always plenty of choice and freshly made. I couldn't even tell you what is my favourite as they are all equally fabulous. Keep doing what you're doing. Definitely Carlisle legends.

Hi suecoe2015, Thanks so much for a lovely review. It is a bit of a drive through service though we are positioned by the pavement too in order to serve 'walk by' customers. The weather is always in the lap of the Gods lol...especially in Carlisle! It's been a good October, let's hope for a mild winter x Best wishes,... More

Parked on a car park near to town. Always busy when they are there. Food is great and staff very helpful. Only a pity they are not there all the time. Could do with their own restaurant .

May B, Owner at Padthaistr Eat, responded to this review

Hi littleanaCumbria, Thank you for a superb review. Sorry we can't be there more often. Unfortunately the 'homemade' aspect of our food involves a huge amount of preparation time which restricts the amount of time we can physically be there. I hope you can get to us during our normal trading hours but don't forget we can make special freezer... More

Great takeaway meal from a very helpful couple who offered sample tastings etc so I could choose which curry I was going to have. Two points to note: (1) The location shown on TripAdvisor is wrong (as at October 2016): it is on Nelson Bridge (north side) just west of the junction with Viaduct Estate Road; (2) There are a...

Cannot fault the food at all. I was a bit disappointed because I couldn't get pad Thai without a wait due to telephone orders. However I was offered a taste of various curries and the chicken so I could tell how good it was!! The portions are huge and good value for the amount of meat and veg and rice... More

HI Pol1712, Thank you for your great review. We are happy to take advance orders for pad Thai if that helps? Try to ring before 11.00am and we can book a time for you to collect our 'cook to order' pad Thai dishes. Hope this helps but glad you enjoyed the special Yellow curry too!
