Wow, we had an amazing evening meal here and I have never had better Thai food. The waitresses were so helpful and very accomodating. The restaurant itself is charming and cosy. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Slightly hard to spot - but worth the hunt! Incredibly good service felt well looked after by staff. AMAZING FOOD - can customise how spicy you want your dish to be and choose what kind of meat ( vegetarian options available) as well. LOVED IT!!

We have always enjoyed dining here in recent years and our visit before the Edinburgh Festival Fireworks was no exception. Delicious food served by charming waitresses. Only comment would be that the decor feels a bit shabby and dated and could do with a refurb.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
