    Wonderful evening. We were welcomed by a very polite and friendly young lady who tactfully requested a time for us to leave our table. We were shown to our table which was located by the window overlooking the street with a lovely view and quite magical when it became dark because of the lights situated along the balcony. The Spanish waiter Manuel was attentive, very helpful, polite and friendly. He helped us chose good wine and advised on the flavours and spices contained in the food. The food was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by the four of us. Although the restaurant was very busy we did not feel rushed. A very enjoyable from the beautfully decorated surroundings, clean and pleasant toilets to the wonderful service and excellent food and drink. We continue to recommend to any of our friends visiting Edinburgh.

    The food was really good, staff were very attentive, and they gave my husband a slice of their very delicious cake with a wee candle with a song as a surprise for his birthday. Would definitely go back!

    The green curry was terrible and the noodles were overcooked and sticking together. It was also overpriced.

    Three of us are at Chaophraya, my husband, niece and myself. We were lucky to get a table on the roof terrace overlooking George Street which was amazing......such a beautiful evening and what a view. The staff were so attentive and our food was excellent.
