“Excellent views from the conservatory” – including possibly “the best view of the castle, if you get the right table” – are incentive enough to visit this branch of an eight-strong Thai chain. It also delivers “surprisingly good and inexpensive food”.

“The views from the conservatory are second to none” at this “eclectic” rooftop Thai – part of an eight-strong northern chain, and overlooking the castle and Firth of Forth. The food is “authentic and very good” and, while it can “sometimes be difficult to get a table”, your “patience is rewarded”.

“Views out over Edinburgh Castle” are a bonus at this “really welcoming” contemporary Thai, praised for its “lovely staff” and “a wide choice of dishes all presented wonderfully”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
