33 Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DN

Taking over the prestigious former premises of Oloroso, up above George Street, high-end Thai chain Chaopraya is a masterclass in studied swankiness. The large space is broken up into intimate booths and softlit corners eyed by solemn Buddhas, with…


23–23a Brougham Place, Edinburgh, EH3 9JU

A perennial player in the mix of Edinburgh's top Thai restaurants, Dusit proves that consistency needn’t be dull, dishing up the same brand of polished, Thai fine dining in the heart of city for over a decade. Nestled on Thistle Street away from the…


49–51 Causewayside, Edinburgh, EH9 1QF

Lying just far enough outside the city centre to be considered off the beaten track, Causewayside is never the less blessed with some decent dining options, of which Celadon is one of the best. The atmosphere is casual but homely thanks to some rustic…

Bluerapa Thai

6 Torphichen Place, Edinburgh, EH3 8DU

Ruan Siam

48 Howe Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6TH

In a new home or a restaurant, basements have a reputation for being filled with flotsam and jetsam, with just the occasional gem showing up how a well an underground space can be used – Ruan Siam is one such space. While intimate, fairy-lit nooks will…

Bangkok Bar

36 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3SB

Songkran II

8 Gloucester Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6EG

Thai Orchid

5A Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2PW

Situated just a quick sidestep off of the Royal Mile, Thai Orchid could be forgiven for trading on its tourist friendly site. However, aside from its unassuming decor, the laughing Buddhas and bamboo screens that seem rather kitsch, everything else…

Absolute Thai

22 Valleyfield Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9LR

Absolute Thai is an unassuming treasure. On stepping through the curtained doorway, diners feel sequestered from the outside world. The restaurant may be small, but the limited space makes for a feeling of cosy intimacy with small touches of kitsch…

Port of Siam

1 Barony Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6PD

Established Newhaven restaurant Port of Siam has gravitated towards town with its second branch, bringing with it the same Thai fusion menu and wonderfully fresh seafood that have made it justly popular with riverside locals. The Barony Street branch is…

Port of Siam

3 Pier Place, Edinburgh, EH6 4LP

Given Thailand’s multitude of islands and strong fishing heritage, it is no surprise that Thai cookery enjoys such an affinity with seafood. Few restaurants, however, have married this to Scotland’s bountiful larder as well as Port of Siam. Sourcing all…

Time 4 Thai

45 North Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3BG

Entering from the grey Georgian slope of North Castle Street, the immediate impression fostered by the distractingly named Time 4 Thai is that of a well-turned-out place. The designers pursued a purple theme, with folded plum napkins, mauve chairs and a…

Wok and Wine

57a Frederick Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1LH

Run by the gregarious Stephanie Lo, Wok and Wine occupies a particular niche at the more elaborate end of Edinburgh’s Chinese dining scene. Beige walls, potted plants and long tablecloths give an upper-crust air that disguises its basement location, and…

Spirit of Thai

44 Grindlay Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9AP

Thai Lemongrass

40–41 Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh, EH10 4HJ
