We found this small restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Penrith - not an obvious place for a Thai restaurant. Thankfully we paid attention to the Trip Advisor reviews and ventured in. The wait staff were friendly and helped us chose. Excellent value for money and great food - who would have thought of finding a great Thai restaurant so close to the Lake District!

Choice from 2 "Daily Specials" described on a board outside the door,or from the menu(about 100 items).I find the food tasty,adequately sized and excellent value for money. Only 24 people can be seated in what is basically a "Diner-type" room with tables only big enough for 4.I go regularly with a friend.

Very nice food. We have been here twice over a few days. Have tried the mixed starters and a beautiful coconut chicken soup. All very nice, in particular the chicken satay and the soup. Very nice authentic taste!

Would definitely recommend.

This simply-decorated little cafe serves absolutely delicious Thai food, and is excellent value for money. The staff were very kind and fitted us in late on a Saturday night when they were about to close - and we were extremely glad we did. The best meal out I have had in a while!

We have eaten here several times and ordered take away. The food is always delicious and the chef will cook to your pallette i.e. more or less spicy as you prefer. The staff are friendly and the chef often comes out of the kitchen to talk with diners. The only disappointing thing is that tables are in little booths which can only accommodate a maximum of four so larger groups or wheelchairs could not be catered for.

Definitely the best Thai food in the local area.
