Dusit, Edinburgh

49A Thistle St, Edinburgh EH2 1DY

Dusit in Edinburgh, “Dusit was opened in 2002 by Pom and his team, to great accolades in the local and national press. Pom, originally from Bangkok, worked at the high end of the food and catering industry in the UK for twenty years before developing the Dusit concept. The Dusit team has built an enviable reputation based on fantastic food, attentive service and relaxed ambience.

The cuisine is contemporary Thai, using the best fresh local produce, combined with herbs, spices and Asian vegetables imported from Thailand. This has led to Dusit being recognised as one of the top Thai restaurants in the country. Dusit consistently receives great reviews and has been awarded much coveted Ticks in Pete Irvine’s authoritative book, Scotland the Best.”

Time 4 Thai

45 N Castle St, Edinburgh EH2 3BG

Time 4 Thai in Edinburgh, “Time 4 Thai is a stylish, contemporary Thai restaurant ideally situated close to George Street and a very short walk from Princes Street. Since opening its doors to customers in 2005, Time 4 Thai has successfully established itself as a firm favourite on the Thai dining scene for both residents and tourists alike. Walking into the restaurant will be an immediate pleasure. The interior is a blend of creams, lilacs and greens. The real scene stealer, however, is the large glass wall at the entrance, tastefully lit to enhance the lilac orchids embedded within. All of the crockery and cutlery is made and imported from Thailand giving an air of class and authenticity.

The menu can be described as modern Thai with king prawns and seafood as a speciality. Fresh ingredients are flown in from Thailand every week to ensure all dishes are cooked in authentic Thai flavours. Time 4 Thai has a very metropolitan feel to it being elegant and contemporary. Whereas Time 4 Thai’s sister restaurant, Thai Lemongrass, tends to be more of a homely local eatery, Time 4 Thai is definitely a big city venue. The lunch menu starts from £16.80 which will not be disappointed. Also proving very popular is the special lunch menu the restaurant has recently launched. All the dishes are a meal in itself, reasonably priced and are perfect for customers who don’t have much time on their hand but would still like to enjoy delicious and freshly prepared authentic Thai food.”

Spirit of Thai’s interior décor is a subtle blend of the traditional and the modern, with tiled floors, magnolia walls and wooden ceiling beams creating a calming cottage feel, where customers can enjoy an authentic Thai meal in a tranquil atmosphere.
