I've been coming here for several years and love the place. Had a jungle curry last night and it was properly hot! I love spicy food and the best meals for me are hot but with lots of flavour and the jungle curry nailed it....More

Found this place by chance and were really pleased. The food and service were excellent and not really too expensive. Authentic Thai food and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely revisit when next in Edinburgh

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

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
