The food was fantastic we had the pineapple rice, the curry beef, shrimp noodles and the duck. Great. The best one of all the pineapple rice. Fab food. Would be helpful if staff spoke better English but we loved the experience. Will be back

This is a great place to go for an after theatre meal. The food is amazing and so fresh tasting. I would recommend the king prawns and Tom Yam soup.

I took my daughter here for a birthday meal. It's small and for a Friday evening was surprisingly quiet whilst our original choice was fully booked and we couldn't have a table for nearly 2 hours. The waitress was attentive and efficient. We ordered starters,...More

I would highly recommend the 3 course set lunch deal. It is £11.50 and served quickly. I went for vegetable spring rolls and prawn red thai curry. You also get ice cream for dessert but that is set and you can't have a different dessert....More

This was the first time I had been and I was very impressed. It's quite small but cosy, Excellent food - so tasty and very generous portions. The service was excellent too. I'd highly recommend you try here.

Pretty standard Thai fare. Well located for local Enti. Venues but does not stand out amongst the competition. Service was somewhat flustered and a lot of menu options looked disarmingly similar.No draft beer.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
