Dusit, Thistle Street, EH2 1DY, Edinburgh

I have been here for dinner twice and have always had a good meal. The platters to share that they do for starters are amazing as can give everyone a taster of things and doesn't fill you up too much. The staff are very attentive but as jcaughey said they are almost too attenttive. Sometimes you just want to be left to eat your meal. The restuarant is always very busy in the evenings so you will need to book in advance.

The food is good but the prices are also high. If you don't get a special deal (2 courses for £10.95 etc) you will pay but it is worth it for a special occasion or a treat.

I dined at Dusit on a Friday evening. The restaurant seems well designed as, although it was full, the atmosphere was lively rather than being too noisy.

For starter I had a prawn dish which consisted of 6 big prawns and a chilli dipping sauce. I felt that the chilli sauce could have done with a bit more of a kick but for a starter I thought the portion was very generous. For my main course I had the red curry with duck. While this was good and very tasty, I was slightly disappointed that, as with the starter, there was not much fire to the sauce, plus I felt that the duck was simply placed in the sauce rather than being married to the dish. Once again the portion was huge - probably too big as I had to leave some, which I hate.

Compared to other Thai restaurants, Dusit is probably at the more expensive end of the scale but I would say that it's probably worth it.

I found the staff attentive - in a good way and not too intrusive. To begin with our table was very wobbly. I made the mistake of not saying anything straight away such that I then felt I couldn't really mention it to the staff. However, after we had finished our starters the waiter serving us noticed the wobble and set to fixing it straight away. The table probably shouldn't have been wobbly in the first place but this (very) dull anecdote provides an example of how attentive the staff are - I think in most places the staff would not have noticed or ignored it.

Dusit, Thistle Street, EH2 1DY, Edinburgh

I went here for lunch on Saturday. To be honest the only reason we went was because town was mad and there were queues out the door for every other place that we tried. My dining partner had been to Dusit before so we gave it a go for lunch.

Dusit is beautifully presented and they do a lunchtime menu for £10.95 for 2 courses. I started with a lovely Thai salad which was just the right size for a starter, for my main I had a chicken curry which was quite spicy! The food was good but it came at funny times... I had my main about 5 mins before my dining companion did which was a bit annoying.

The staff were very pleasant but there were far too many on. It's obviously good to have attentive service - but it was a bit excessive.

I would still definitely recommend Dusit and would like to go for an evening meal. If Thai is your thing and you fancy reasonable lunch - I would recommend Songkran over Dusit.

Ate here last night. Food was very impressive: fish cakes, sweetcorn fritters and chargrilled prawns all delicious. For mains we had pad thai, a duck massaman curry and a chicken pad kaprao. Better examples of these you couldnt find in Thailand- seriously tasty and aromatic with notably fresh and quality ingredients. We also tried desserts out of curiousity (Ive never had a decent Thai dessert) and they actually also turned out to be awesome! The ubiquitous banana fritter was taken to a new level with outs, honey and a very good vanilla ice cream. A slightly bizarre dessert called 'Ebony and Ivory' was actually a delicious Thai take on a rice pudding.

Unfortunately, there were a couple of issues with the service: too many on FOH meant we were constantly being asked the same things by different people and we got our wine topped up every 3 minutes. They meant well and were generally friendly but it was completely overbearing. Also, the curries were served on big flat impractical plates which was a pain in the a*se.

Apart from that, seriously tasty food worth splashing out for. Ill be back to try their takes on venison and grouse.

This is one of my favourite Thai restaurants in Edinburgh. Always worth booking to be guaranteed a table.

Eaten here at least 10 times!

The half moon pancake is the best starter I've ever had - the coconut, prawns and beansprouts and always cooked to perfection and the accompanied dip is just delightful.

The chicken with garlic and pepper as a main is another lovely dish. Rice and noodles just superb. For lovers of Thai food this is the place to go.

This place deserves 5 stars - I just love it!
