Looking round Penrith for a café late afternoon and found this in the Arcade, one of few places still open. Really pleased with the choice on offer and the quality of the meal, good value too. A bit of a 'fast food' feel to it but don't be put off, it's well worth a visit. Café also does takeaways, so... More

Loved this place! The food is so fresh and so tasty! The chicken soup was out of this world and the banana fritters, home made and home battered, stunning! Service was spot on!

I normally have one of the excellent spicy soups - Tom Yum Gai (Chicken) or Tom Yum Goong (King Prawn) Today tried their lunchtime special starter followed by Stir Fried Beef - Neau Pad Khing Just £6.99. Going back next week

We have visit the cafe at least ten times but this is my first review. We have always had lunch there and have never been disappointed. All food tastes so fresh. I like Thai food and make a point of visiting Thai restaurant in new town and cities when I have the choice. I have not found one to deliver... More

We went to this highly rated cafe on a Monday Evening. Of course the Arcade was shut when we arrived so we had to walk round from the main street to the car park at the back. The church was fascinating and obviously a community hub! There were only four other people eating in and a couple of people for... More

This is a small restaurant found in Devonshire Arcade beside the George Hotel in Penrith. Warm welcome and freshly made food. Open kitchen so you can see meal being prepared. Food well presented. Restaurant very clean. Bottled alcohol available.

It's excellent. It's all cooked to order, fresh, spiciness is adjusted to your preference. Not huge portions so we have a soup or salad for a starter....which makes it even better (if slightly more expensive). Go there!

Excelent service, quick and polite. Good quality food, very fresh and tasty. The two soups we had tasted great, and the hot one, was hot - so be careful what you ask for! The mains were also good, very tasty and fresh. Excelent meal.

Thank Mike C
