A surprisingly good Thai restaurant. Food excellent and home made & cooked by the Thai chef/owner. Dining room lovely although it was a bit cold sitting at the bay window (it was a bitterly cold night).

Been to Keswick many times before! Every time I've struggled to find a good restaurant. Tried booking here before but every time it's full and for a good reason. The food is fantastic! The duck, chicken, beef was perfectly cooked. That's not even mentioning the starters! Service couldn't be faulted. Everything is cooked fresh to your liking. I will definitely... More

We have wanted to visit this Thai restaurant each time we visit Keswick and eventually managed to book at table 30th December during our New Year Visit to Keswick. Having read the reviews we were a little apprehensive but there was no need to have been. I have visited Thailand and this was food was excellent. There is no alcohol... More

Luckily got a last minute cancellation for a table for 4. The whole evening was the best New Year's Eve we've had in years. Amazing flavours, superbly cooked food by Fon, ( duck spring rolls are to die for)exceptional attentive service from Richard and Nancy.

Myself and my family have enjoyed a number of dinners at Shemara over the last few years. Each dining experience has been thoroughly enjoyable and unique. Individual tastes are well catered for and each dish is cooked to order and created with passion and flair. It is certainly the most authentic Thai food we have had in the UK. I... More

Seriously, book a table here... it's wonderful. The chef and server were so friendly and attentive. It's a B&B dining room, which is quite large and accommodates about 12 diners. The decor is luxurious and inviting, showcasing traditional Thai elements such as painted ivory and golden elephant tapestry. The atmosphere is intimate but also private for individual tables. Sublime. Thank... More

The restaurant room is quite small (it's the breakfast room for the B&B), only 4 tables, and the temperature was VERY high. Add the heat of the spices.... I was melting down. BUT the food was very good. I had red curry duck spring rolls and thai green curry King prawns, served with fried rice. Maybe the rice was a... More

As locals, we'd heard about the restaurant,and planned to visit, but with one thing and another just never got round to it until last Friday. The restaurant is basically the front lounge of the guest house and while the room is small, it is beautifully decorated with Thai memorabilia, as are the tables themselves (including chopsticks) so creates a lovely...

You need to book well in advance to eat here, only about 6 tables, lovely atmosphere, chopsticks were actually on our table when we arrived contrary to previous review. We found the food to be lovely, very reasonable prices and well presented. The owners were some of the friendliest, and welcoming I have ever experienced. We enjoyed the food so... More

Food was fine, service was competent. We had to ask for chopsticks but they were provided quickly. Overall good food, but not exceptional.
