Silver Bowl for good Thai food in Edinburgh

Excellent food at a reasonable price (for Thai) delivered promptly (if you live close by) Living further afield does take longer (as I used to experience) but quality wise this is the best you will get for takeaway food of any specialty. Can't fault them.

Great menu, and delicious food. Pad Thai, tofu red curry, tofu green curry, rice and spring rolls for 4 of us for £24. Perfect takeaway - very fresh and very tasty.

I have had takeaway from the Thai many times and it has always been excellent. Thought I'd try the Chinese tonight and it was absolutely disgusting! These are the dishes we had: Prawn Toast - cold and saturated in grease; Spare Ribs - all gristle and swimming in a container full to the brim of a "sauce" as liquid as... More

My wife was sick but in the mood for Thai food so we ordered from Silver Bowl twice in a week. Both times were so good that we concluded that it is probably the best Thai in Edinburgh... At least if wanting to have it at home.

After leaving it too late to book a table at a restaurant, we had no option but get a takeout. We opted for Thai and came across Silver Bowl on JustEast. It was easy to order and the delivery came on time. I'm fussy with Thai food but the meals were fantastic. I definitely recommend.

We ordered a feast tonight for our last night in Edinburgh and it was the perfect final meal. My favourite dish was the beef with holy basil and chilli - smoky, spicy and fragrant. The noodles were a delight and the coconut rice was moreish. It was all bloody lovely!

Everything was disgusting, poorly cooked with bad flavours. The crispy shredded beef was not in the slightest bit crispy, it was chewy and gloopy. The sauce it was in was sweeter than any desert I have eaten (apart from those gooey Indian balls soaked in sugar syrup). The ribs were inedibly hard, gristly and had no flavour. Everyone was very...

We ordered from the 12 Albert Place restaurant on 29th Nov 14 and it was fabulous! We ordered the chicken satay to start and the sauce was lovely, with the skewers really fresh and well cooked. For our mains chicken gai prik tai and chicken gang dang gai with egg fried rice and both were delicious! Portions were generous with... More
