Passorn (9/10)

Passorn serves delicate, carefully prepared and really quite beautiful Thai food …..

It was apparent that Passorn was a class act …

..Passorn is a quietly elegant, tastefully kitted out restaurant in a serene, unostentatious way. Our gratium prig Thai prawn was a work of art and delivered flavours to match.

I have been back to Passorn for lunch, and already I’m looking forward to the next one.”

Their signature dish of stir-fry monkfish (Pla Samun Pri) was superb – it deliquesced on my tongue. As for their Pad Thai, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted better.

Good Food Guide

“This is a restaurant which aims for, and achieves, quality in every area, from the warmth of the welcome through to the expertly prepared and presented dishes. Vibrant, chic, and already famed for its delicious food, this modern restaurant takes Thai dining into the 21st Century.” – by Karen Birch – Creative Cusine / March 2011

I am not prone to superlatives but I can say without any shadow of a doubt that the meal I enjoyed on that cold, grey Monday in Edinburgh was the best Thai food I have ever tasted! I will be going back there to eat as soon as I can and if you are in Edinburgh I urge you to do the same! So, if you want to experience angelic Thai dining – the most exquisite food and faultless service, visit Thai Passorn while you can !
