Authentic Thai Food

Passorn Thai was launched in December 2009 by Cindy Sirapassorn, with the goal of providing wholly authentic Thai cuisine using only the finest Scottish produce plus imported Thai herbs and vegetables.

‘Passorn’ means ‘angel’ in Thai and we wish to provide an angelic experience for our customers.

The aim of Passorn is to bring a true taste of Thailand to Scotland. Passorn is owned by a Thai woman, uses only authentic Thai recipes (many of these being family recipes).

Passorn aims for the highest quality in every area, from the warmth of our welcome through to our expertly prepared and presented dishes.

We would never use MSG in our cooking.

Once again the food was spicy, tasty, interesting and absolutely delicious. My little beef salad was so tasty. And then there is the Black Tower dessert, I'm lost for words here...sweet, salty, hot, cold, fruity, tropical and just delicious! Yum! This place is a must for spice lovers.

The waitresses are very friendly and efficient to serve the most beautifully presented, authentic Thai food in all of Edinburgh. The delicious, unique smells of the food are enough to put me in a good mood and the chefs never fail to deliver on quality/creativity. This is why I highly recommend Passorn Thai restaurant if you are in Edinburgh for the best (angelic!) dining experience.

The food was also amazing, very spicy which I love! This is the best Thai I have ever had, easy 5 star rating from me and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some great Thai food!

Superb tasting food, good service. The restaurant was very quiet - Covid times, 9pm Thursday evening - with one other table in use, who left shortly after we arrived. We'd driven 380 miles, so were tired and hungry.They were quick in serving the food and helpful with suggestions and advice. Take their warnings about spice seriously! Their 1-5 scale of spiciness is genuine. I like spicy food, and a rating of 3 was enough for me.One minor criticism: they close the kitchen at 9:45, and they didn't tell us. We wanted a little bit of dessert after our main meal but, because we finished at 9:50, they couldn't serve us any. If they'd warned us, we might have ordered the dessert in time.

Oh my goodness. The food was just beautiful! Everything we had was exquisite. The waitress was a bit snippy and the prices are quite high but to be honest the food was so good I didn't care! Will be back :)

Excellent food, amazing quality food, one of the best steak curries I've ever had. The customisation of the spice makes the dishes feel so much more personalised. Loved it!

Top food, great service, good atmosphere. Called in with no booking about 7 midweek, I think we were lucky to get a table for 2. Highlight of the menu was the tenderloin beef salad starter with a really excellent mix of flavours - lemongrass, red onion, coriander, lime leaves, chilli, mint, tamarind.
