After searching online for a Thai restaurant in Edinburgh, my partner and I fell upon this one, which happened to be round the corner from our accommodation. We have visited many Thai restaurants, looking for true authenticity, and we were thrilled to find that the...More

Meal was adequate if not startling but service was very good. The menu was short on selection and the TomYum was lacking kick.

Very nice, and attentive service. Handy for the playhouse Theatre. I had the green curry, which had a lovely kick to it - but was probably just a tad too sweet to get the place 5/5.

We were a party of 9 people before going to the theatre. This Thai meal was the best we've had in years. The sharing starter was the star dish - highly recommend!

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
