While the name has changed, it is still the same owner, staff, food and environment. We have been here numerous times and have always had a good experience. The food is average/good and we have been hoping to have a "wow" experience, but are not able to say we have had one. Following our most recent visit, we have concluded... More

The curry was good, aromatic and tasty. However, the shrimp pad thai I got was not as good as I expected. It was not bad, but just average. The thai tea was delicious though!

I've had a dinner and a lunch with the last week at the reinvented Carlisle Thai Cuisine. The service was terrific, pleasant, and attentive. I could not get enough of the sauce on the Panang Curry with chicken. Gosh it was so very good! Well done -- a new favorite for me in a town of awesome restaurants!

Located in an historic building in downtown Carlisle, this is a great place especially if you're looking for a vegetarian meal. The service was friendly and efficient.

This is the same owner but new name. What I love about this place is their flexibility. In addition to the constantly changing specials, they are always wiling to modify their food to your liking. The fact that there is always parking in the rear, makes this a convenient spot to explore downtown Carlisle from. Unlimited free wifi is always... More

We decided to try a Thai restaurant in Carlisle. We were very pleasantly surprised. Great food, good service, very nice menu selections that include unique chef specials. A bit pricey but portions were good. We tried Thai tea for the first time and were surprised we liked it so much. This place is now a new favorite of ours.

We eat at they restaurant quite often while our son attends Dickinson College. The staff is very friendly and the food is extremely fresh. The restaurant will accommodate small and large sized parties.

When you drive down W.High St., this restaurant does not jump out at you as it is inconspicuously placed, however, it is well worth the hunt for the delicious thai food that Joy, the owner, serves. The presentation was beautiful and the food was very flavorful and exactly what we were looking for. We had 2 appetizers, the Money Bags... More

The evil jungle princess and basil chicken extra spicy are my favorites. Portions are small but the food is very savory and delicious. Best spicy option.
