I had been chatting up Malaysian food all day to my hiking partner and knew this was going to have to be good. I almost panicked entering the place to find it nearly empty at 6PM on a Sunday evening. That can't be good, right? Well, I don't know why the place is so empty as the food is marvelous. All the courses were well - presented and the service was very good. I got to check all the boxes on a fairly rare cuisine. My only complaint would be for a better selection of beer. But they had what was typical for most Asian restaurants.

A fantastic experience. From the welcome at the door to the great service an all round 5 out of 5.

The food is amazing. I can highly recommend the meat platter to start and the Randang is some of the best I have had. Do yourself a favour if in Carlisle and looking for somewhere to eat you won't do much better than here

Had visited this restaurant a few years ago and wasn't impressed. Believe has changed hands now. Luckily has also changed for the better. With 3 friends we got a selection of starters and main courses. Great meal. Everyone happy. Wine good too. Not overly expensive. Def worth a visit. Will be going back.

Fan-Thai-tastic! Just the place to go if you like Thai food and is a good place to go with friends and family as it has a friendly atmosphere. I went with my parents and it was amazing!
