Searching a place to dine this restaurant came highly recommended. It certainly lived up to its billing with fantastic fare served by the most welcoming of floor staff. We were quickly ushered to our table and offered drinks as we perused the menu. I would highly recommend this eaterie.

We came here a few years ago and had the best weeping tiger steak. So we made plans to come here again... it's a great resteraunt. The menu looks brilliant however we stuck to the weeping tiger steak and it was as good as we remembered. I would make a point of coming here when I am back in town.... More

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try on a Saturday night. Did not like the look of the place- looked small and cheap, but inside was lovely, with plenty of tables. Food was delicious- we had the vegetarian banquet- and were very happy with our choice. Staff friendly and unobtrusive.

Mysels, sister and my daughter visited this restaurant pre-theatre. We didn't book a table before going to theatre but luckily they were able to accommodate us. Staff were very nice and polite. Food was delicious. I explained that I was vegan, the waitress was very helpful in informing me which meals I could eat, although she did say that they... More

My boyfriend and I visited Phuket Pavilion last night after about 7 years and were very happy with the food and service. We had chicken satay to start (nice, but I wished for at least a double amount of the satay sauce), then duck red curry with pineapple (asked for it to be extra hot and it was fantastic), beef...

I have eaten at several Thai restaurants and would have overlooked this but for its close proximity to my hotel this visit. surprisingly empty compared to the plethora of Indian restaurants, we were initially unsure. However, the typical excellent service kicked in from the start and our starters and mains were delivered quickly and beautifully presented. Shared starters were chicken... More

My Wife and i ate at the Phuket Pavilion prior to watching a show at the nearby Edinburgh Playhouse. We didn't have a reservation so we went quite early, about 5:30, It's just as well that we did as it filled up pretty quickly. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. Definitely worth a visit if... More

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods 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 epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
