  • 2016 Festival

    It’s a wrap for another year of the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival, which proved to be a huge hit amongst diners and restaurants. The signature event ‘The Moveable Feast’, was extremely popular with tickets selling out within hours and necessitating an additional date to be added. Guests were taken on a culinary tour of restaurants around the city centre, with a few little surprises along the way.

    What the restaurants said

    Marinel Scorer, Marketing & Outreach Manager at Chaophraya:

    “The Chaophraya Edinburgh team were absolutely delighted to have partnered with this year’s Edinburgh Restaurant Festival as it has been such an exciting and inspiring concept to encourage people to dine out in the Capital. With this year’s Festival theme focused on ‘try something new’, it was a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase the contemporary Thai cuisine delicacies we have on offer at Chaophraya, inspiring diners to enjoy the different styles and flavours of Thai cuisine. As well as our 30% discount on the A La Carte menu, we thoroughly enjoyed being part of The Moveable Feast event which brought diners here as part of a gastronomic tour of the city. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the experience and we’re sure we’ll be seeing some of those diners again!”
