‘The Times’ Alex Renton 25 January 2012

Passorn in Edinburgh is the best Thai restaurant in Scotland. They serve complex, beautiful dishes using excellent ingredients.”

‘Sunday Herald’ Joanna Blythman 6 March 2011

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.”

‘The New Statesman’ Will Self

“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.”

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.

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.

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.
