We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day and are feeling refreshed after the weekend! To help you get through the week, we’re delighted to announce our #RestaurantoftheWeek. Drum roll please…
Our Restaurant of the Week this week is a stunning Thai restaurant in Leeds; Thai Edge.
Thai Edge is situated on the very corner of Millennium Square, on Calverley Street in Leeds city centre, which makes it an incredibly popular place to eat throughout the day and late into the evening. The restaurant is able to seat up to 120 diners at any one time and you will find a wide range of people inside, enjoying the delicious, and traditional, Thai food.
Thai Edge is one of very few Thai restaurants in the UK to hold an AA Rosette, an accolade that is very much deserved as the quality of the service and the food itself is exceptional. Their roster of awards does not stop there though, they have also won ‘Best Service’, ‘Best Oriental Restaurant’, and have been named as one of the top ten places to eat Asian food in the UK by The Independent.
The interior effortlessly blends traditional Thai décor with contemporary design. Fronds of LED lights, carved wall hangings, authentic ornaments, and beautifully modern flower arrangements all blend together to create a real oasis of calm in the heart of the busy city. During the day, the restaurant is bright, airy and a refreshing place to rest shop-weary feet and minds whilst the evening sees the atmosphere smoulder with the addition of soft lighting and gentle background music. The tables are set simply, but beautifully, and the service is attentive and friendly without being overbearing or intrusive in any way.
Whilst the venue itself is truly the food is the real show stopper. One mouthful of the Pla Pae Sa (gently steamed seabass fillets in a spicy and sour sauce flavoured with tamarind, lime juice, lemon grass, spring onion and plum sauce garnished with chopped chillies) will be enough to have you making your next reservation before you’ve even finished the dish. Even the fussiest eaters will find something to please their palettes and, as all of the dishes are cooked fresh to order, should you prefer your Thai Green curry a little milder, or your Satay Gai with a little more sauce, then the chef will be more than happy to do so for you.
If you think that this standard of cooking is out of your price range then you would be wrong. The a la carte menu is very well priced, and there is a vast range of value for money set menus available. The set menus are perfect for those who want to try a wide selection of Thai Edge’s most popular dishes.
