About Chang Thai

Thai food with a romantic twist is how we would describe Chang Thai, a cosy restaurant in Edinburgh’s historic Craig’s Close between the Edinburgh Rail station and the Princes Street Gardens. Decorated with glass tabletops, wood-panelled walls and fresh flowers, Chang Thai is a warm and welcoming space in the city’s Old Town filled with exotic aromas and traditional decor. We love the super-friendly staff and premium yet affordable selection of authentic curries, stir-fries, seafood and salads made from the very best local produce. Chang Thai is a brilliant choice for tables for two, discreet business entertaining and dinner parties and attracts an eclectic crowd of locals, tourists, students and theatre goers.

Lovely food, authentic full of flavour and even more delicious then other Thai restaurants we have been too! Worth a 2nd visit!.

Great restaurant. I started with the chicken satay and had the green curry as a main. Both of which were delicious. Washed down with a cold bottle of Singha it was a great meal. I was too full for a sweet. The decor is traditional Thai and the staff are efficient and friendly and the cost is very good. I would recommend this gem to anyone who likes Thai food in a nice relaxed atmosphere


I had an early dinner at Chang Thai in Craig's Close, Edinburgh which is probably why the restruant was empty and lacked atmosphere. I had the Chicken Green curry with cocunut rice. The curry it self was avarge not a great deal of kick to it and in fairness the menu did say it was medium spicy, would have expected to be asked what level of spice did I want. The rice was not strong on coconut flavour and more a sticky rice context. So I would put it as aveerage and not rush back for seconds

Chang Thai Edinburgh A lovely, quaint Thai restaurant with lots of character, from the elephants in the window to the hand decorated tables. Somewhere to go with your partner, friends or family. This is a mid-range eatery with a rustic look.

Had a great meal here last night. I had the massaman curry which was delicious and my wife had the tofu green curry which she loved. Nice decor and friendly staff in a great location at a good price.

Well recommended

I had satay which was quite good. For main course, I had the green curry with beef. It wasn't the best one I had but so-so.

Chang Thai in Edinburgh - standard half decent Thai fair. Very enjoyable fot the price.

Had a gorgeous meal at Chang Thai tonight. I had the geng ped yang and my partner had a mild chicken massaman curry. Both were delicious as was the sweet bottle of rose we had to round of a lovely evening. Authentic Thai decor and lovely staff. Well recommended and i will definitely be returning again. This was our third visit and as usual we left very happy.

My friend and I decided to try out Chang Thai in Edinburgh as the reviews on toptable was very convincing. However, we finished our meal with disappointment. Instead of asking whether we would like a drink, we were just brought a glass of tepid tap water. We had a mixed platter to start with and it was missing tod man pla which seemed to have been replaced with something else but we weren't asked or advise of. The main course wasn't quite what we expected either. So we're unlikely to revisit.

Went to Chang Thai the other night with my girlfriend for dinner, had high expectations after reading several reviews. All in all we had a really good time, arrived at 20:30 and left just as they were closing at 22:30. Food was superb, had the vegetable tempura for starter which I'd recommend. We shared a red Thai curry with duck, green thai curry with chicken, coconut rice and Thai sticky rice which was more than enough for 2. The restaurant was quite quiet so there wasn't much atmosphere, the lighting was quite bright as well. For some reason we were not given the opportunity to order desert (was far too full anyway) but we should have been offered the menu. Great food, generally good service, could do with getting some lower watt bulbs though.

Had the early evening menu in Chang Thai in Edinburgh. Food was excellent as usual, very authentic and ideal portion size. Staff were very attentive and lovely. My only complaint would be that where I was sitting beside the window was uncomfortably cold. I would however recommend this little hidden gem.

Chang Thai, Edinburgh. My third visit and this time with family. We had an excellent meal with excellent service. The dishes were all well presented and the portions were just right. Speed of service was well timed and the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. My one small critisism was that the plates could have been hotter.

Went as two 20 something couples in December 2011. Firstly the decor was excellent and the restaurant was very warm and friendly. The restaurant was very clean and well run.

The food was excellent and the price was also very reasonable. I'd recommend Chang Thai, Edinburgh to anyone. Infact I've booked for our next meal already!

Visited Chang Thai on New Years eve - it was busy & we were seated by the door but v. draughty so asked to move when other diners left. As it was busy we were left waiting a long time from starter to main course about 45 mins - in fact i think our mains had been forgotten about! The wine we ordered was not in stock but we decided to have champagne instead! The food was good and the staff friendly but we both found the restaurant a bit cold!

Chang Thai, Edinburgh 3 of us visited for New Years Eve. Good meal, unrushed, nice atmosphere and location. Order and service were slightly confused, but it is definitely genuine Thai so some language challenges (and my Thai is non-existent!). Overall really nice place, good food, good value and worth another visit.

Lovely little Thai restaurant tucked down a side street. Restaurant is cosy, service very friendly and efficient but most importantly the food was absolutely delicious. So good that we have booked to go again this evening!

Really tasty food sadly the plates were cold and therefore made the food cold straightaway :o( I wasn't as bothered about this as my husband was, I was more concerned that there wasn't enough food!! I had No.22 which was a traditional Thai curry (prawns) which was absolutely gorgeous and I could have eaten 2 lots easily!! All in all the food was delicious and service excellent but cold plates producing cold food let it down

Chang Thai is the perfect place for a romantic evening! The food is great and the service is just perfect. Could do with turning the lights down a little as it's quite bright inside but otherwise it's a brilliant little place.

fantastic experience. hospitality was excellent as was the food, 10 out of 10 on all counts. The restaurant is lovely, even though it was not very busy, it still had a nice atmosphere, my wife and me had a lovely evening.
