We are currently faced with an extraordinary situation during which we must prioritise the safety of our customers and employees, who are the heart and soul of our business, above all else.

In an effort to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily closed our restaurant with effect from 19 March 2020 until further notice. We will constantly re-evaluate the restaurant re-opening schedule as conditions continue to change.

In the meantime, we’re working to go into partnership with Uber Eats with a view to offering our customers their favourite dishes to enjoy at home. We will let you know more about this soon.

Please try to stay healthy, and we are confident we will emerge from this crisis with stronger bonds throughout our community.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time and look forward to be of service to you again soon.

Spirit Of Thai


Spirit of Thai opened to a fanfare of rave reviews in the summer of 2006 and has since established itself as a firm magnet for Thai food lovers. The restaurant is conveniently situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s theatreland, just a stone’s throw away from the Lyceum, Usher Hall and the Filmhouse. Its location is perfect for enjoying a relaxing meal before or after shows and concerts to round off an unforgettable evening.

Spirit of Thai’s interior decor is a subtle blend of the traditional and the modern, with tiled floors, magnolia walls and wooden ceiling beams creating a calming cottage feel, where customers can enjoy an authentic Thai meal in a tranquil atmosphere. The warmth of the service and surroundings extends to the exotic, aromatic food. Each dish on the extensive menu is clearly and accurately described, and the welcoming staff are on hand to offer customers advice and recommendations if needed.
