This is a great date place with a little bit of a ‘wag’ vibe. Delicious Thai food and friendly service, reasonably priced. Book in advance and ask to sit on the enclosed terrace with views of Edinburgh Castle.

We went without a reservation but the staff was kind enough to get us a table on the outside right by the window . We had to wait at the bar but in the mean time I had an excellent cocktail called Flower Market.
Things we ate - 1. Vegetarian Springrolls - very different flavour and was served with my favourite Thai sweet chilli sauce . (4/5) 2. Grilled pork skewers - MUST HAVE DISH , the flavours are out of the world (5/5) 3. Ginger mushrooms - expected there to be a variety of mushrooms cooked in a ginger sauce but there were bailies other veggies too. Not my thing (2/5) 4. Vegetable Pad Thai - great original flavour (4/5) 5. Grilled Thai Chicken - yet another must order dish , the flavours are to die for (5/5) 6. Chicken Thai red curry - takes you back to Bangkok ! Enough said (5/5)

I visited this restaurant on Saturday with 3 friends and as usual had a great meal but it was very crowded and as I use a wheelchair I was made to feel uncomfortable. . To get into the restaurant I have to take a lift up to the restaurant floor, The security man on duty did not have much of a clue about how this lift worked but when I got to the right floor I could not get out of the lift because an extremely ill advised guest had been told by a staff member that it was the correct place to leave 2 empty push chairs. I could easily have caused a lot of damage to my wheelchair and also to the push chairs During the meal the service was poor to say the least. We got an extra glass of wine and 2 bills, bur they only sent us 3 main courses. I suspect they had use a number of badly trained temporary staff. Also when we arrived the seem to have no knowledge of the table I had booked

After a disappointing meal in Chaophraya a couple to months ago we were persuaded to go back and give them a second chance. We had a perfect view of the castle which was a great start. The food we had was amazing. Everything was so full of flavour. And the service, which had been poor the first time around, was much more attentive. It is expensive, and for us it would be for a special occasion, but we would now return.

Top notch food, service and views. Try and nab a window seat if you can. Fantastic food and well priced Thai meals. The wine list is excellent as is the bar area. Lovely presentation of all meals. Try the tasting plate as an entree to get a bit of everything. Mains were generous and delivered spicy and hot. A very high standard

I think it was at least 10 minutes after arrival that I managed to pick my jaw up of the floor; this restaurant is stunningly beautiful. From stepping out the lift on the 3rd floor, and walking past the 3 Buddhist statues with their hands outstretched, you’re dazzled by the glittering pristine finish of the staircase, the large glitzy Chaophraya sign and chandelier. Sweeping up the stairs, you feel like royalty before being warmly greeted by their front of house team who with their hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upward, bowing forward slightly extend the Namaste greeting with large smiles.

Their new menu focuses heavily on sharing and you’ll find some gems here. Traditional Thai Currys are listed – fish, prawn, chicken and vegetable, as well as noodle and rice dishes such as Pad Thai, Udon Noodles, Spicy Fried Rice with Chicken and Basil. But it was the starters that caught my eye with classic dishes like Chicken Satay, Soft Shell Crab & Squid Tempura and the Chicken Spring Rolls. So much to choose from but we settled on the Maeklong Platter which came with two chicken satay skewers with peanut sauce, 4 x prawn and pork dumplings, 4 x chicken spring rolls and 2 x sweetcorn cakes with a sweet chilli dip. This look of this dish is impressive when delivered to the table. Its bright and colourful with the banana leaf adding to the vibrant plate of bites.
We ate our way around the plate starting with the sweetcorn cakes. These were packed with sweetcorn kernels but we agreed they lacked seasoning. Dipped in the sweet chilli sauce however, they transformed into tasty morsels of crunchy crispy savoury bites. The bite-sized pork and prawn dumplings were nice, the chicken skewers again lacked seasoning but smothered in the delicious peanut sauce, were lovely. The one thing that let down this sharing platter was the spring rolls. Although they were stuffed full it was predominantly vegetables and they were bland. Very crispy though. When eating Thai I usually opt for the Thai Green Curry, but the Massaman Lamb Curry with coconut rice was jumping out the menu at me. They describe it as “Pieces of tender lamb stewed with massaman curry, coconut milk, carrots, potatoes and baby onions, topped with cashew nuts. Massaman is made with turmeric, star anise, cardamom, cinnamon and chillies and is one of the favourite dishes of the Thai Royal Family, dating back to the 16th Century”. My partner choose the traditional signature dish, the Chicken Pad Thai “Pad Thai Gai – The national dish of Thailand. Stir-fried rice noodles in tamarind sauce with chicken, spring onions, carrots, egg, tofu, sweet turnip and bean sprouts, topped with lightly pickled vegetables.” The Massaman Curry was served in a cast iron dish, the rice wrapped in a banana leave and unwrapped at the table; whilst the Chicken Pad Thai was served with a glass cloche covering it. I think this was meant for drama and effect but it fell a bit flat. The cloche was filled with steam rather than smoke and was removed almost at the same time as the plate was set on the table.

Edinburgh is a town with literally thousands of options for food. You can only handle so many pubs and so much haggis. If you are looking for a very nice dining experience and enjoy excellent Thai food, then give Chaophraya a go. The service is impeccable, the atmosphere beautiful and the food lives up to the environment. The signature cocktails are great to set the mood. Definitely call ahead for a booking, we walked in, but don't take that chance. If the weather is nice you can sit outside and since the whole place is on the roof of a building the views are great. Preference a castle view or a sunset view.

There are no shortages of restaurants in Edinburgh, but there is a big variation in quality. My wife and I both love Thai food and Chaophraya came highly recommended by food bloggers, travel sites, and a couple of locals we met. This restaurant is located on the fourth floor of a building located on Castle Street and offers an amazing view of Edinburgh Castle if you are lucky enough to secure a table with a view. We waited too long to secure a reservation with a view, but we were still able to get into the restaurant with only one day's notice.

We went here for a family dinner a while ago. It’s a lovely restaurant with great views of Edinburgh.
I had the spring rolls to start which were delicious but enormous so bare that in mind!
I followed this with the pork belly Pad Thai. This was nice but the pork belly was a bit hard. I’ve been before and had the chicken Pad Thai and that was much better.
I had the mango beer too and this was also delicious.
The waiters were lovely but the service was quite slow but I imagine this was because they had a massive group in a private room.
At the end of the meal, we were allowed to go and look on the balcony and had great views of the sunset.
It’s a lovely setting for a special dinner but I’ve had slightly nicer Thai food elsewhere in Edinburgh.
Excellent restaurant and stunning views! I made a reservation for my birthday and had the most amazing evening at Chaophraya Thai! I want to thank the staff for accommodating my request to have a table near the window and for going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect! The waiting staff were knowledgeable and passionate about what they were doing as well as helpful when it came to making sure our food was perfect and that the table was clear whenever we'd finish that course.
We would love to go back and we are thankful to have gotten a chance to taste your delicious dishes prepared with the outmost care and attention. Thank you so much for everything ( the fact that this is a family owned restaurant made us even more proud to have been here and even happier to have chosen this restaurant for our special occasion )!
Fantastic night, scrumptious food, stylish cocktails and highly attentive service. Great entrance, interior decor, bar, glass conservatory seating as requested which really made our night special. Food was perfect with good sized portions, even had to get a to-go bag because I couldn't let anything go to waste.
Everything about our experience was 5-Star. If you want a classy, memorable dinner out, book this place.
This is an amazing place! When you first arrive it feels like you are entering an office building. But once you take the lift and exit you feel right at home! Friendly staff, fabulous food and for a special evening, the place to be! Highly recommend!
Certainly will visit again when I next go to Edinburgh! Remember to book even if it is the night before!
This Thai restaurant was highly recommended by both a local tour guide and a fellow traveller! The restaurant is large with a view of Edinburgh castle from the balcony. The indoor decor is lovely, with a big fish tank that we were sat next to, and the servers were kind. Our food (spring rolls, pad thai) was delicious. Definitely worth visiting!
Had a lovely time with Chaophraya!
The food was incredible and so was the service by Elmo! She was super helpful with the menu and making amazing recommendations and the food was out of the box and so were the cocktails!
The bar is super friendly with any sorts of changes with the drinks which made an additional point!
Excellent Thai Restaurant.
Extraordinary good service, very nice and helpful.
We had to wait at the bar as we where a little early and got offered a Glas of water for free.
Drinks at the bar where great.
We had a table with a fantastic view, you can ask for it in the reservation.
The menu is great and the food was excellent.
We had a great evening.
If you are looking for a high class Thai restaurant in Edinburgh you should clearly consider the Chaopharaya.
Beautiful views over Edinburgh , prefect location to catch the sunset over the west.
Food was really tasty , portions are large but if you over order they will kindly pack you up a doggy bag , there were bags on lots of tables so we weren’t the only ones with eyes bigger than our bellies , we went for the vegetarian set menu - staff were wonderful and attentive and really friendly - great value and well worth a visit. Book ahead of you want a good view.

Most of the orders were spectacular. Try the spring rolls, noodles, black pepper beef and steak and sweet an sour chicken
For dessert both sticky rice and chocolate mousse were amazing
Our first visit was simply marvelous. I can't recommend Chaopraya enough. The food was delicious, generously apportioned and exquisitely presented. I definitely can recommend the banana fritters with ice cream for dessert and the sweet and sour chicken with Dragonfruit. Also their fries were exceptional, they had a unique smokey flavor and unique shape.
