Lovely restaurant set off main road. Lots of choice on menu, we opted for a banquet - plenty of food for two. Had the sticky coconut rice with lychees for dessert - shared between two of us, the rice and lychees complimented each other. Thank you to the staff.

This place is incredible! The staff are so lovely and dressed in traditional Thai clothing. The owner is very pleasant and came around our table a few times to make sure we enjoyed our meal. And we certainly did! The food is perfectly seasoned and tasted very authentic and special, compared to many other Thai places that claim to be... More

Very authentic Thai restaurant with great staff and nice surroundings. Had Goong Yang for starters was very spicey, wife had chicken satay, couldn't fault them. We then had 2 different sea bass dishes with coconut rice, again no complaints. Not the cheapest but quality of food and service makes this no issue. Worth a visit.

This was my second time to visit this restaurant. I have been dreaming about the tempura prawns since my last visit & they didn't disappoint! Amazing! I decided to have duck this time instead of the usual green curry - again absolutely gorgeous. The house wine was also great. Will definitely be making a visit here next time I'm over.... More

Delicious food, attentive staff and quick service. The restaurant has a friendly atmosphere. A lot of nice touches including the gold coloured cutlery - will definitely go back.

We have been here before but do not hesitate to come back to this nice little place which is very handy for the playhouse. The food is authentic Thai (one of the best outside Thailand) served by friendly and helpful staff. They do do a two course Theatre menu which is ideal but also a "banquet for 2" choice if... More

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

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.
