The food tasted really fresh and was clearly made with very high quality ingredients. The only negative is it's on the pricey side. Go for the pre-theatre deal or banquet; much better value for money.

Yes it is a tiny little restaurant tucked away in a basement therefor hard to find but well worth it. My family (wife, daughter, and son-in-law) ate there on Tuesday evening, 20/8/13. We all ordered from the two course special menu (Gawd I hate making choices in restaurants) and we were all pleased with our meals. Service was excellent and cheerful. Portions were more than adequate, in fact I would say substantial. We all had drinks, wine and beers, and the bill came to £92.00, not bad at all considering the quantity and quality of the food and drink.
Yes, I would certainly eat there again.

Tiny little Thai restaurant in the basement of a New Town building. Food was tasty. The pork in the dish I had was a little chewy. The sizzling giant prawns were delicious but pricey at £19. Worth a visit.

5 of us ate here last weekend and opted for Banquet B to get a sample of Thai dishes. The food was good but not exceptional and there was just far too much of it. We were given a 'doggy bag' which fed us 5 again the following night. If trying a banquet (for 2 or more) take less portions than people. The meal plus 2 beers each came to £37 each which was rather pricey for what you got but if you take the view that's 2 meals each........
Service was polite but a little intrusive. There was always someone at the table asking how things were. Service is included in the price so they certainly worked for it.
Location excellent. A stroll downhill from the centre of town on the edge of the New Town. Very handy for the bars and cafés of Stockbridge. I'd go again but order less.

Dined here midweek this week, the food was ok although the starters was greasy (fish cakes, spring rolls), main dish (king prawns panang) had good flavours but the prawns weren't deveined properly. The service was very slow (restaurant was busy). Waited a long time between the courses and was tucked away in a corner.
Asked for the bill but it never arrived so after a long time ended up getting up & paying at the desk. Its expensive for what you get. Had better Thai food and service elsewhere so unfortunately will not be returning or recommending.
