So, I walked by that new place in Fisher Street yesterday, apparently it was opening night. Looks nice from the outside but has anyone actually been? What do they serve? Prices? What's the name of the place? Do they deliver? Is it true that there will be a Hotel too? Perhaps a decent place which removes Lewes from the 'map of embarassing places to stay'? I want to know it all.

It is owned by the people who have the Spice Merchant and they have told me that it is going to be serving Thai food. I think initially it will have offices upstairs. Can't wait to see it as I used to work in that building.

Should've been the first in a new range of town centre establishments that ALL towns will want eventually - Lewes could have been the first - we could've started a trend that would sweep the country and solve all our social ills - homelessness, street crime, parentless children, graffitti, growing ageing population - it could all be solved with a simple system - but nw my brilliant idea will just have to wait..

A Thai restaurant? That's a bit 1990s isn't it?

I think its called the Buddah bar, lots of mirrors and buddahs, black, red, chandeliers.
But its not the famous Buddah bar (it is Lewes after all, so not very cutting edge( thankfully) but looking forward to something a bit different. Didn't look at the menu andI only saw a little bit of the layout. Bar on the left hand side, lounge on the right. Not sure about upstairs.The only thing to worry about is it might attract drunks wanting a late night fight.
All we need now is a cinema, a fish restaurant,and a Mexican like the great one they have in Canterbury.
I do hope 'Angry of Lewes (Retd)'dosn't mean a happy clappy church?

Mystic M it may be a little radical but think it through - street homeless, single parents unable to support themselves, disabled, undesirables - all could be moved into a secure work/home environment - simple useful tasks to benefit society - packaging goods, sorting recycleale items, ironing, washing, simple domestic repairs and refurbishments (bikes, toys, furniture, sewng) in exchange for food and shelter. Easy to distribute medicine if required - they could nurture and support each other and socialise once their work is finished....
used to be called Workhouses - we just need to think of a more socially acceptable label.

Angry of Lewes (Retard), you haven't done your market research. You may find that there has been an entrepeneur with the same idea who had set up some branches in Mauschwitz and Duckau a couple of years back . It didn't go down well, despite free shuttle trains, and he lost it all.

It's called BuddhaBelly, it's Thai food. Went there last night and had red curry, my husband had hot & sour soup to start and then green curry. It was first rate, though you have to like your Thai food spicy!!! The manager from Spice Merchant is in charge (it is the same company).

Thank you for the information everyone. Just wondering what it will do to the Thai in Station Street?

What is the Thai restaurant in Station Street like? I went 4 years ago and thought it was revolting - a plate of non-descript splodge with something lurking under it (supposedly tofu as I'm vegetarian). I've never been back but have recently read that it's the only restaurant in Lewes in the Michelen Guide! Is this a reflection on the restaurant or the guide I wonder?

I used to love the Thai in Station Street - I don't go there now as it is very expensive.
Mind you, I have walked past the new place on Fisher Street and thought that it DOES look like a brothel from the outside. Will be interesting to see what "alterations" have been made to the listed building (I remember seeing sledgehammers being taken to the doorframes before planning consent was granted (if it ever was?))

How dare you, that plate of non-descript splodge with something lurking under it is my national dish.

Calum, why did you think it was going to look old in there? It used to be my place of work, and believe me, what they have done is a definite improvement.

It may be our national Dish but we all have to make sure that we represent our country 110% with whatever we do
Im sure it couldn't be that bad though lol I've had lunch time noodles there a few times and its pretty good (love me noodles)
Advice for dining at the new place. Book well in advance. The restaurant area is quite small and it does get busy. But then again you could always wait for a table whilst sipping on a cocktail
