Absolute Thai , 22 Valleyfield Street, EH3 9LR, Edinburgh

An absolute find. This small restaurant serves fantastic food at a price that would make many other Thai restaurant blush (it's BYOB as well). This is a small family business and the decor is light and simple but the cooking is always spot on. We've now been there several times and have never been disappointed. The garlic and pepper chicken is fabulous, as are the plum wine ribs, the papaya salad... well pretty much everything we've tried so far. And the owners are truly lovely and always try to accommodate. I would really recommend this for value for money.

4.5 from Rich (12%) on May 3rd, 2010 (7 years ago)

Absolute Thai , 22 Valleyfield Street, EH3 9LR, Edinburgh

The best Thai food that I have found in Edinburgh served at a price that can hardly be believed. The restaurant is slightly tucked away which is both good and bad. Bad for the family who run the business as it would be full 7 days a week if it was more prominent, but good for us as they has always been room when we have turned up.

The food we have had has always been superb, delicate, fragrant and really fresh, packed with taste and with some really spicy dishes. The service is attentive and friendly and whilst the restaurant is not the most atmospheric, this slight downside should not even register when compared to the multitude of positives this little gem offers.

This is the best thai food i have found,authentic!!! Labb Gai is so good and Somtam with sticky rice is good too! The restaurant is tiny so well worth booking before. We love this place and will be back again and again.

Absolute Thai , 22 Valleyfield Street, EH3 9LR, Edinburgh

Gem of a place, hidden away near Tollcross/Kings Theatre.

Have eaten here one three occasions- twice for dinner, and once for lunch.

Green curry monkfish is lovely- hot, but not over powering. the Chu Chi Talay is great too- scallops and monkfish were cooked to perfection. Rice is so good, you could probably just eat it on its own!

Paid my second visit to this small and friendly restaurant. A friend and I shared a starter platter which had fishcakes, steamed dumpling, chicken satay, tempura prawn and spring rolls with a variety of sauces, dips and salads. All very tasty! For our mains, we had chicken breast panang curry, which was deliciously fresh in a rich sauce and served with pak choi. The other main dish was stir fried chicken and ginger - very delicate flavours and great texture with the wood ear mushrooms. A coconut rice and a portion of deep fried sweet potato added to the experience!

The restaurant is tucked away in a side street, but close to the centre of Tollcross and easy to get to. A very friendly family business - highly recommended.
