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.

Tried this restaurant on the off chance, was only in Edinburgh for one night. Excellent service and excellent food. Perfect meal and brilliant value for money. A must try if you like Thai and are in Edinburgh.

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
