Went here last night for the first time. Having been to Thailand a few times I'm always quite critical when I go anywhere that serves Thai food. I have to say, this did not disappoint. I can't wait to go back. Had chicken pad Thai and chicken massaman with a Mai Tai cocktail. Never had a Mai Tai that tasted... More

Reasonably priced. I hadn't been here for a while and had forgotten how tasty the food is. Slightly odd decor- really no need for some of it- but friendly efficient staff and great choice of good food. Sweets disappointing as all frozen and bought in but the rest excellent. Good choices for vegetarians too.

We loved this place. We went on a Friday night for the tapas special. The quality of the food was excellent, very tasty. The green curry was the best I've had in a long time, maybe even ever. Drinks price wasn't extortionate. We had a lovely evening and Queen E hopes Big Pappa S will take her back soon :)

Absolutely fantastic food coupled with gorgeous cocktails. The food was outstanding. The only negative is the noise & vibration from the pub below. Will definitely return for the food

Visited quite a few times, don't go so often now as the menus has changed and no longer serve our fav dishes but always pleasant service and enjoyable food.

I was recently in Carlisle for work and wanted to find somewhere to eat. The Royal Outpost was a short walk from my hotel, and as well as being conveniently located, the restaurant boasted a number of very positive reviews. I ordered a vegetarian green curry and a side of Thai noodles. The curry was delicious, with just enough of... More

I am now kicking myself, for having never sampled the delights it has to offer. The Tempura prawns were fantastic, the Panang curry was fabulous. The service was excellent. Admittedly there... More
