If you like Thai food then try this little place in Lerwick town centre. Sopa who owns it is also the owner of the Glenorchy hotel where I stay for work so have eaten here frequently and although was never too sure of Thai food have found many dishes I love.

This is a typical lowish-budget Thai place. Food good without being exceptional, service friendly. Sound system playing (I assume) Thai music was faulty and sounded terrible - manager eventually turned it off. You wouldn't think twice about this place in a large town or city, but in Lerwick it made an interesting change.

This was the first time I had been to a Thai restaurant, I've been to plenty of Chinese restaurant which sold some Thai food but this was just Thai food and boy what an eye opener, a brilliant range of food all with explanations of what was in each dish and a guide to how spicy they were. The service... More

We came here a few times on our last visit to Shetland and loved it so we headed back here upon our return visit. It was as good as ever. Don't be put off by the exterior - the restaurant behind the takeaway is lovely. Staff are friendly and service is efficient. Delicious food. Will definitely be back.

Very enjoyable Thai food. We had the set meal for 2 which was rather too much in quantity (for me, though probably not for everyone) but there was no faulting the quality. It was nicely presented and served by the owner herself, who was welcoming and helpful and whose graciousness contributed to a pleasant occasion. This is a fairly small... More

Have been here twice recently for a meal in the restaurant. Both times we had a set meal, lovely freshly cooked food, so tasty and plenty of it. Mixed starters are fantastic and well worth the money. Restuarant is cosy and basic and drinks are reasonably priced. We will be back soon

There was very little to indicate you were sitting in a Thai restaurant other then the staff. The furnishings were comfortable but no atmosphere. There were two prawn dishes on the starter menu, so I ordered the pepper prawns. I was so disappointed when I was served four (freezer food shop) thickly battered prawns on a bed of shredded dry...

Eat here during our stay in Lerwick. The owner was very friendly and the food was good. We had a fair selection of dishes which were all tasty and the service was fine.

We thought we would try something different for a change. Ordered a takeaway so we did not eat in the restaurant. You can change the spice level of your dish if you like. They do sticky rice which is unusual. The menu was not extensive but you can have the usual meats and seafoods. The ribs had a very nice... More

After hearing good things, we decided to try out Phusiam. There was 6 of us and we got the starter platter which was lovely but things went downhill from here....I ordered a dish which was described as crispy chicken stir fried with green beans, baby corn, onions etc. The reality was bit of battered chicken and onion rings. When I... More
