Bangkok Bar

36 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3SB

The old Blue Moon Café may be a sadly missed Broughton Street institution, but Newhaven-based Asian fusion restaurant Port of Siam’s opening of a new branch in its place has brought a new and intriguing personality to the spot. Annexing the restaurant…

Bluerapa Thai

6 Torphichen Place, Edinburgh, EH3 8DU

Small, sparse and brightly lit, Bluerapa has been plying its trade in the unprepossessing Haymarket byway of Torphichen Place for just under two years. Punters in search of fine dining might consider venturing furthering into town – the food here is…


33 Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DN

Krua Khun Mae

29 Cockburn Street, 1 Craig's Close, Edinburgh, EH1 1BN

Krua Khun Mae translates as 'mother’s kitchen', a name chosen by new owner Anan to reflect the homely nature of the menu and ambience. Originally called Chang Thai, this cosy subterranean restaurant is tucked into a tiny alley which runs down from…


28 Bernard Street, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 6PP

Still a relative newcomer to the Leith dining scene, Mintleaf’s dusky, opulent interior sets a sophisticated undertone to this Thai and Indian restaurant. Having separate head chefs for the two menus, Mintleaf can almost seem to incorporate two…

Nanyang Malaysian Cuisine

Unit 1, 3–5 Lister Square, South Pavilion, Quartermile, Edinburgh, EH3 9GL

If you can find Nanyang, deep in the maze of modern glass blocks that form Quartermile, you should reward yourself by taking the time to explore this dynamic cuisine, still under-represented in Edinburgh’s restaurant scene. Minimalist but comfortable…

Port of Siam

1 Barony Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6PD

The slightly labyrinthine premises of the New Town branch of Port of Siam are spread over several rooms with entrances from both Barony and Broughton Streets. It shares the same menu – and the same husband and wife chef team – as its sister restaurant…

Ruan Siam

48 Howe Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6TH

You might have to venture underground to get to this little hideaway, but it's no underdog. Diners melt into the mood-lit, jazz-infused oasis, surrounded by authentic smells and friendly, well-judged welcomes. The menu opens with a short explanation of…

Saiko Kitchen

15 Roseneath Street, Edinburgh, EH9 1JH

Founded by owner Natalie Florance using inspiration gathered during a trip to Vietnam in her student days, Saiko Kitchen is a neighbourhood café rather than a destination establishment, as evidenced by its opening hours (no evenings). The small but…

44 Candlemaker Row, Edinburgh, EH1 2QE

Japanese eateries tend to be quite trendy, so this cute little place on Candlemaker Row feels quaintly old-fashioned with its simple wood furniture and traditional Japanese crockery. Owner Qun Tang previously ran a sushi restaurant in London and visits…

Thai Pad

20 Leopold Place, London Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5LB

Quicker than you can say 'tablet computer', there's a grimly punning new restaurant, Thai Pad, on the scene. It is, in fact, a new incarnation of the fairly short-lived Love You Long Thai restaurant in the basement of the Richmond House Hotel on London…

Thai Pod

20 Leopold Place, London Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5LB

The takeaway arm of London Road’s Thai Pad, the same kitchen and chefs are responsible for a menu with mains helpfully broken down into Thailand’s culinary regions. Mixed starters are very generous in quantity, and include a beautifully flavoured, if…

Time 4 Thai

45 North Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3BG

Ting Thai Caravan

8-9 Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH1 2QZ

Absolute Thai

22 Valleyfield Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9LR

The ambience of Absolute Thai is rather more unfinished than the name suggests. The dining room is a tight squeeze and décor is a strange mixture of disparate furniture and trinkets that would be at home in a gap student’s living room. The menu is…


49–51 Causewayside, Edinburgh, EH9 1QF

Slightly off the beaten track, Celadon’s southside location means that it attracts an eclectic blend of locals, tourists from nearby guest houses and students. The restaurant offers a comfortable environment with stripped-back walls, fairy lights and…


21 Argyle Place, Edinburgh, EH9 1JJ


49a Thistle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1DY

Dusit has become a byword for fine Thai dining in Scotland. It is the place to take people, and recommend to people, knowing they won't leave disappointed. The English names of the dishes give the menu a narrative quality, inviting you to tell a story…


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

Phuket Pavilion

8 Union Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3LU

Songkran II

8 Gloucester Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6EG

Spirit of Thai

44 Grindlay Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9AP

In a location so unequivocally Scottish, it is no easy task to bring, as this restaurant aims, a little Spirit of Thai. Once inside however the bustling tourist crowds seem distant. Asian chillout music, authentic smells, and an interior that displays…

Thai Basil
