“One word - wow!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Ate at Passorn for the first time last night with friends. The food was amazing and the staff were great. As diehard fans of another great Thai restaurant in Edinburgh, we would even admit that Passorn has trumped our favourite restaurant! Can't wait to go back, and have already recommended it to several friends.

“Excellent”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Booked for our wedding anniversary. Lovely fresh, zingy Thai flavours, unfussy and efficient service. Felt dishes could be a little larger to score even better on value, but a small quibble. Better than other well known established Edinburgh Thai restaurants and, for that matter, regular European ones too. Looking forward to going back soon.

“Reviews + Reality = Disappointment”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Nice atmosphere, took our coats, and put cloth napkins on our laps for us. Menu is labeled for vegetarian items and for those containing wheat, but when it came to accommodating our dietary limitations, our server sent out two separate people to explain that they would not make a slight modification for us. They said they were too busy and that there were other options for us to choose from, so we had to choose a different item to order. We won't be returning.

“My favourite Edinburgh restaurant”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've eaten twice in two months at Passorn, for special family celebrations, and am already looking for an excuse to go again. Having eaten well at Thai restaurants in and around New York, and in Sydney, my family had been disappointed by Thai food elsewhere in Edinburgh. So Passorn had been going for some time before we decided to check it out.

It's a wonderful restaurant. The freshness and intensity of flavour is unsurpassed elsewhere. The spiciness is carefully matched to your personal expectation. The range of dishes is greater than at most Thai restaurants and the presentation will make you want to get your phone out and take a picture of your plate. The service is friendly, courteous, and attentive.

“Angelic Thai food”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This wonderful little restaurant is not in the centre of Edinburgh but close enough to get to easily. As you go down the street look out for a tasteful grey painted frontage bearing the name. Inside the welcome is true Thai. From the moment you arrive you know you are somewhere special. Just walking past the tables of other diners is an experience in itself and sets you up for perusal of the menu. Everything is absolutely top quality and cooked to order by the fantastic Thai chefs. I had a curry of monkfish which melted in the mouth. The sticky rice arrived in bamboo pot and was delicious. There is a small but really good wine list. Judging by the clamour for tables booking is essential. Go there and come away feeling you have had a taste of the angels.
