We came a few days after Christmas and didn't feel like we were welcomed at this restaurant at all. We were not seated for about 10 minutes even though there were empty tables. Went up to Thai owner at the counter and asked a white elderly gentlemen. White elderly gentlemen (maybe owner) was rude in his tone. It felt like... More

We booked a table in advance. The gentleman on the phone didn't seem too friendly but reviews said the food was great so I wasn't put off. We were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff. We ordered a banquet for 2. Service was quick and the food was outstanding. Would definitely recommend.

Been here several times and it is always wonderful. The food is delightful but the people are even better. The Thai girls are nice and friendly the male owner/manager is also excellent. Very good value for money too! Can't fault this place.

My wife and I nipped in as we were staying nearby, we didn't book and luckily they managed to fit us in although they were very busy. The food was lovely and there is plenty of choice and variety on the menu. The staff were very friendly and the service was faultless, also we didn't feel rushed even though they... More

Initial impressions were good...ambience etc. However door opens straight on to street so pick your table carefully as there can be quite a draft when new people come in. I like Thai food but found the green chicken curry to be a bit bland. My friend had a duck dish which was nice. Service was a bit on the slow... More

I've not been here for a while so I took a friend/colleague for dinner. He loves Thai food and was very enthusiastic about how good his meal was. I love the sirloin steak salad and can't help having it every time. Excellent food and service as always.

Definitely the best Thai food I've ever had. The prices are reasonable, and the staff are very friendly - quick service too with an excellent atmosphere. If you like Thai food then go here now!

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods 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 epicentre 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.
