Best Thai food

A welcome surprise for a meal out during the festival. The best Thai food we've had. More pricey but portions bigger than usual. A treat.

Visited this lovely restaurant last night and was blown away by the food. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The food was excellent. The only negative comment would have to be on the price. A bit too expensive.

Went there for a pre-theater, they offered a two course menu with a reasonable choice and we took that. Was a bit below the promise ("angelic thai food"....) but not bad. Rightfully spiced, both the hot and sour shrimps soup and the curry beef were well prepared. Service was very accurate and careful. They made a mistake in the final... More

Main reason of choosing this restaurant was it was open till late and I could go in at 10 o clock in the night. This isn't common with Edinburgh restaurants. Another plus point about the place is it has free parking after 6.30 just in front of it so if you're driving you are quite sorted. Try the sweet potato... More

Had a decent meal but the prices are high considering that there are Thai restaurants of equal or greater renown nearby for significantly better value. My wife's prawn curry worked out at about £4 per prawn...

Enjoyed the pre theatre menu tonight with my family. Service, food and ambience were all excellent. Wonderful fusion of colour, flavour and spices. Fresh Thai food at its supreme best.

We chose this restaurant on the basis of the TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was beautifully presented and full of flavour. The service was quite excellent. Suggest you book a table as we found that all the tables were full by the time we left (we had a midweek booking).

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
