Whether you're looking for a quick lunchtime fix or a celebratory dinner, these Thai spots are so fragrant that you can already smell the ginger, and taste the dumplings!

Silver Bowl

311 Leith Walk, Leith

Their "off the hook" food "rocks my world", raves Tom G, who struggles not to order from this treasure every night. "It all tastes really fresh, so big flavours like coconut, coriander, chilli and garlic really stand out in each dish." And don't let a drop go to waste: "their Thai crackers are perfect for mopping up saucy goodness."

Thai Lemongrass

24 Renfrew Street, Glasgow

Lex G sampled the "Gaend Phed Ped Yang, which is a roast duck curry with tomatoes and pineapple in coconut milk and Thai herbs". Her verdict? "Yum yum in my tum tum!"

Ruan Thai

48 Howe Street, New Town, Edinburgh

Nikki A's favourite dish is always Thai green curry, and she reckons that the one served here is "as good as the TGC you get in Thailand itself". It's "well cooked with lots of different flavours without any of them being too overpowering".

Thairiffic

303 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow

Rocco G "went for the pre theatre menu which is a Thai slappingly good value deal! The food was immensely appetising and packed a good punch of fresh chillis, herbs and zing!" You'll find two courses for £12.90, Sunday - Thursday.

Passorn

23-23a Brougham Place, Tollcross, Edinburgh

When Stephen C ordered "chicken stir fry with black pepper, ginger, garlic and coriander" he was delighted to find it "beautiful, exploding with taste but yet nothing overpowering".

Thai Siam

1191 Argyle Street, Finnieston, Glasgow

Claire D sums up her meal: "we shared Thai Green Curry with king prawns, and the Holy Basil Chicken. The curry was spicy, creamy and bursting with flavour. Likewise, the chicken dish was evidence of the know-how and passion behind the kitchen doors."

Dusit

49a Thistle Street, New Town, Edinburgh

Poor James W has got it bad! "I have been twice now in a month", he swoons, and even now the "authentic" nosh of this establishment "is calling me back". So, what's got him so hooked? "The duck is to die for."

BKK Thai

946 Argyle Street, Finnieston, Glasgow

"The food here is really good - tasty meals in healthy portions", says Zane G. Specials include tofu pad khiao wan (mixed vegetable and tofu with green curry paste and coconut milk) and pork dumplings in tom yum soup!

Thai Pad

20a Leopold Place, London Road, Edinburgh

Kelly F says her "noodles were exceptional" when she ate here, since "they have just the right amount of heat from the chillies, coupled with the crunchiness of the peanuts".

Chaophraya

Nelson Mandela Place, Glasgow

Michelle M raves "the chicken satay with accompanying peanut sauce literally took me back to the Hawker Stalls in Singapore where I used to buy satay sticks to snack on. The peanut sauce was nicely flavoured and not overpowering."
