Delighted we found this restaurant. Nice atmosphere, prompt service and beautiful food. Plenty of space with the owner playing his part we will certainly return.

Fancied a change from the restaurants on the main road and looked online and realised there was a Thai Restaurant. I have tried the curries, stir fries and soups, all good sized dishes, with a good balance of heat and flavour.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
