About True Thai

The vibrant and exotic flavours of traditional Thai cuisine are perfected at Edinburgh favourite, True Thai.

Close to the University of Edinburgh and famous Arthur’s Seat, True Thai boasts a creative, yet traditional menu with favourites including vegetable tempura, mun wad tan (fried potatoes with plum sauce), delicious soups and an extensive curry, stir-fry and noodle menu available. We recommend the chef's speciality pla seabass true thai, crispy seabass fillet with fresh herbs, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, red onion and cashews – it’s out of this world.

Lovely hidden gem away from the city. Attentive and friendly staff. Plenty of choice on the menu and food was full of flavour and very tasty. Not too expensive either

Having a reservation was a must. The food and service were excellent. Would definitely recommend. We also appreciated the numerous options as to whether you wanted certain items very, or simply mild.
