Thai food is all about flavoursome and fragrant dishes made with skill, passion and produce that’s super fresh. Here in Edinburgh you’ll do extremely well to find a finer example of fine Thai cuisine than that which is on offer at Noks Kitchen. This restaurant – well-located on Gloucester Street in the Stockbridge district – not only gets the flavour of its food absolutely bang on, but the presentation on the plate rivals any that you’ll find in a restaurant much higher up the price ladder. Noks Kitchen is, therefore, an absolute gem and one that wows revisiting diners on a regular basis. It’s definitely best to reserve a table way in advance.
We’re going to go ahead and say it: you won’t find more beautiful-looking Thai food in Edinburgh than at Noks Kitchen. You’re also unlikely to find Thai food that tastes better, or a Thai menu that’s as pleasingly far away from the norm as this one is. As you can tell, we really like Noks Kitchen and we know that you will as well. You’ll find Noks on Gloucester Street in Stockbridge where the restaurant itself small, intimate and well-decorated with a combination of exposed stone, dark furniture and a few homey Thai touches.
In terms of what you can expect from the menu, on the Noks Kitchen lunch menu you can pick up two terrific courses for £9.95, whilst the dinner menu is laced with further quality. Begin with a vibrant Thai salad or soup before moving onto a curry in the way of a classic massaman or panang. The grilled duck red curry made with a variation of fruits is also a sensation, while the pad sam sa hai from the wok, prepared with asparagus, king prawns, scallops and monkfish is an absolute must try. Diner of Edinburgh and Stockbridge can also look forward to plenty of fresh seafood, done just right on the grill.
At present enjoying trying new dishes in the new lunch menu. We spoke about trying their yellow curry and a complimentary taster was brought. Staff are very helpful.
Amazing food, service was also great. Would definitely return when in Edinburgh.
Fabulous lunch as always, best Thai food in the city.
