We had the most beautiful meal here. My starter was called Miang (chicken)..I didn't want it to end, it was truly delicious! Staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. Best Thai meal I've had in a long time.

Very good food, clearly prepared fresh with choice ingredients. Attentive if somewhat apologetic servers. Decor could do with sprucing up a bit.

Went to the restaurant for a birthday meal and they did not disappoint. If you are a fan of Thai food then this is the place for you! One of the best Thai restaurants I’ve been to in the UK. We opted to get a couple of dishes and share and the Massaman lamb shank was absolutely delicious and the beef Penang was a close second. Will definitely be returning here when in Edinburgh again!

Lovely food served on hot plates where appropriate. Service quick and attentive. A couple of things like prawn crackers and Leo beer not available but as it was the first night after a long lockdown, very understandable.
Have been before and will be back again.

Food was barely mediocre, especially for that price. I love springrolls but the ones we got weren't good at all. The pad thai dishes were pretty boring and didn't really taste like anything. All courses were served with some sorry looking carrots which clearly were a not fresh.

We eat regularly at Passorn and the food is excellent but the Bangkok lunch menu had changed and my Thai fish cakes as a starter were not as good as usual. My wife had the sea bass and that recipe had also changed and was not as good as usual.
