Price Point: Mains from £10-£20
With stunning views over the landmark that is Edinburgh Castle, feel like a king or queen while dining on the best Thai food in town.
Located between George Street and Princess Street, Chaophraya is perfect if you're negotiating the cobbles in central Edinburgh. Soak in the remarkable view from their glass-enclosed dining room. Even the ceiling is made from the stuff and it really is a sight to behold! Looking to impress? Stop the search!
While you're waiting for mains, order in some starters to share. The Chaophraya platter sounds like a good place to start, as does the yaowarat dumpling platter and chicken Thai tacos. Alternatively, ease into your evening with some authentic tom yum soup that comes with mushroom, prawn or chicken.
Then onto the main event! Go down the classic route with the chicken, tofu or seafood pad thai or a red, green or jungle curry... choose your weapon wisely. But if you want to Thai (pun intended) something different, opt for the spicy riceberry and basil that comes in meat and vegetarian form or the Thai re-imagined section. Let your imagination run wild.
