Made a takeaway order on their website, was told would be 20-30 minutes. After 40minutes passed I phoned to check progress. Communication was terrible. Couldn't get a sensible answer. Multiple calls later and still unsure why our food hadn't arrived. Eventually the food arrived after...1 hour 15 minutes, unfortunately the food needed to be microwaved as was lukewarm. I understand there are sometimes delays, but if this happens, please phone the customer to explain what's going on. The food did taste good on reheating, otherwise would have been 1 star.More

We discovered this restaurant in lockdown when looking for a Thai in town. It did not disappoint. Delicious dishes and great service. We haven’t had a meal we haven’t enjoyed yet and keep going back. If you like Thai, then definitely worth a visit or...a takeaway.More

This little gem is tucked up a quiet street just a stone’s throw from The Meadows, within a short walk of Edinburgh University’s main accommodation and teaching sites, and only a 15-20 minute walk of the Castle and the Royal Mile - and it is...worth the wander. While its appearance from the outside is understated, the welcome within is far from that - and the food is wonderful. We enjoyed a selection of delicious Thai starters and soup, followed by some flavoursome curries, noodles and rice - all in generous portions, and served with the widest of smiles. The prices are very keen - ideal for a family meal, or for when visiting a member of the family studying at the university (as we were). In terms of cost, the restaurant has the added advantage that it allows you to bring your own alcohol - Gary, the proprietor (who runs the operation together with his partner and their excellent and friendly team) no longer sells alcohol on the premises, preferring to encourage the clientele to drink their own (with no corkage charges) - which, if necessary, can be purchased from a shop directly across the road from the restaurant. So, for a wonderful meal at modest cost, Thai-Laos has a huge amount going for it. We loved it, and will definitely be back.More

I was overcharged for my meal and was promised a follow-up about it but received no further communication. Pity, as the food was quite good.

A small but perfectly formed Thai restaurant with such lovely staff who can’t do enough! The food was good especially the prawn starter. Two kids, two adults, two veggies, two meat eaters and no one was disappointed. By your booze over at Sainsbury’s or bring...your own so it’s an inexpensive way of eating out and enjoying the food! If you like Thai food go here if you’ve never tried it go here !More

Cannot believe we’ve lived across the road from you for 7 months and not eaten here. Tonight, with empty cupboards and a very empty pair of tummies we decided to have a rare takeaway. OMG. The food. Don’t even feel guilty! So fresh, full of...veg and flavour and love! Amazing service, super friendly staff, would make you smile even in the middle of a pandemic! We’ll be back! 😊More
