We all enjoyed our meals, my meal was very tasty although it could have been hotter and the tom yum soup (king prawn ). Did not have much prawn in it.

This is a nice little restaurant it caters for. Thai and Indian cuisines. We visited as a couple and had Indian only. The service is very good and the ambiance of the restaurant is nicer than it looks from the outside. The food is good value and very nice. This restaurant is worth a trip whilst in Edinburgh. You don't need to pre book as both occasions there were enough tables.

This was a very disappointing experience. Service was very slow and unfriendly. The food was quite bland considering this is a Thai & Indian restaurant. I won't be returning.

The service was good and the staff were friendly. There was enough space despite it being very busy (Friday night during the festival). The food was delicious. I'd go back again.

We arrived on a Monday night @ 21:30. No guests in the room. Service was outstanding but the food was only ordinary. OK value for money.

Went as a family of four on early (1730) New Years Eve. Restaurant became very busy so may not be a typical experience. We all had Thai food so I can't comment on the Indian. I did not enjoy my meal at all. My mixed starter was various lumps of deep fried pastries with very little taste, and the Pad Thai was more like Chinese rice noodles, being dark brown and greasy. I also had to ask for it to be re heated as it arrived cold. However, my family who had different dishes (sweet and sour and green curry) said their food was very good (and arrived hot). Service was adequate, not overly friendly (but might have been the date we went). Our red wine was chilled but tasty and reasonably priced. Much nicer in atmosphere than it appears from the road, and a lolly for the kids on the way out which was a nice touch!
