“Lovely food”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

One of the nicest meals I've ever had. The food was delicious, the staff were great and the prices were very reasonable indeed. My wife and I both opted for Thai dishes and we were not disappointed, the food was brought out when we wanted it, we were not rushed at all and the staff made sure our experience was enjoyable too, very friendly and helpful. Next time we visit Edinburgh we'll eat there again.

“Indian and thai???”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

It was more Indian than thai and in general I find it a very strange combo.

We had the lunch buffet for 7,95 and I was a bit dissapointed by the very limited number of courses to choose from, but at least most of it tasted fine.

The service was good and pleasent.

“Definitely go”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The staff and manager always make you feel welcome.
The cuisine - not really my cup of tea, but I love popping in from time to time to try something new and every time I leave happy, fed and full. Guys are always there to help or recommend what to mix with what.
Unfortunately I always pick early time to dine, so not many tables around and place might seem to be a bit dead - but still seems really good - pick a table by window near the bar if dining early - my partner didn't really like quite 'high pitched' vocals from the back speakers - I didn't really mind.
Great place for larger parties.
Will be back!
Thanks Guys!
