We read reviews and it sounded good. It was great! We had the Angel Curry, really tasty! All the other dishes, which I cannot remember the names of, were also delicious. We sampled the banana fritter and black rice pudding. Yum! The black rice was new to us, it was a very light, sweet with a little salty and fully... More

If you like Thai food (and I mean the good authentic stuff, not the pub facsimile dishes) then it will be worth your while seeking out this excellent restaurant away from the main streets of the city centre (but within walking distance of several hotels, including the Novotel, the Doubletree and the Edinburgh City). The decor is beautifully understated and... More

We asked the hostess for recommendations and I have to say she wasn't helpful at all, it felt like she was too busy to deal with our questions but the restaurant was empty when we arrived. The food was amazing, both the lamb and the steak. They said it wouldn't be too spicy and they were right, delicious! The girl... More

busy place, maybe booking would be best next time, we just turned up but we managed to get a table for 2, the lady who greeted seemed very serious/stressed but the place was busy, immaculate food presentation, the waiting staff extremely attentive and polite, thoroughly enjoyable and will definately be back...beautiful food.

Was in a group of four of us. Restaurant very busy and we went and had a drink in the pub opposite and the person from the restaurant came and told us our table was ready. Excellent friendly service. The food took a while to arrive but it was worth the wait. Beautifully cooked and very tasty. All the meals... More

Really pleasantly surprised at the level of service for such a small restaurant, it has a real high end feel. The food is also great, traditional thai dishes presented well. We were asked how hot we wanted it on a scale of 1-5. Turns out 3 is still pretty hot! Anyway, A+ would recommend.

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.
