Good Thai foor in an open air setting

Four of us ate here on a Thursday night. The restaurant wasn't too busy and as there were only two serviers on duty that was a good thing. I think this may have been a garage or something else before because they have those large rolling windows and they were all open giving the pace a very airy... read more

Hubby and I eat A LOT of thai food. And this restaurant ranks up there as the best. It's a pretty spot...and open air as the front windows completely open up, so you feel like you're outdoors. Hubby had the prawns with mango in curry special, and I had a red curry prawn dinner. Both were perfect! I like hot... More

We've walked by this place often and it always seems busy so we thought we'd give it a try despite the mediocre reviews. The location is nice enough, on the main street of the old town. The front is comprised of three glass garage-type doors that open fully giving it an almost patio feel, for front tables that is. It... More

The food is always consistently delicious and the staff are very friendly. We've moved away from Nanaimo but this is one of our must stops when we are back visiting!

My friends and I come here about once every week or two. Usually we get the pad Thai and the house soup and it is yummy and that'd what we come back for. However the service is okay Depending on which server you get. There is the one tall server, Caucasian female who just doesn't want to be there. Every... More

Hands down the best Thai food I've ever had; I have tried thai food from Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, but this is the most flavourful and well textured thai meals I have ever had. You can really taste the kaffir lime leaves, cilantro, etc. The portions are perfection and the vegetarian options are endless! I highly recommend the Vegetable Panaeng.... More

Our guests chose this restaurant as they are vegetarians and love the veggie plate which they both ordered. There were five of us. We also ordered water, two beer on tap, spring rolls, the pineapple rice, the drunken beef and the cashew chicken. The water arrived promptly. Then we received our spring rolls - which were excellent - WARNING VERY... More

By far, Sukkho Thai is our favourite Asian restaurant in Nanaimo, and one of our faves places to eat regardless of type of cuisine. The flavours are amazing, the portions are hearty, the decor is ethnic and cosy. Awesome, awesome restaurant. A 'not to be missed' experience in downtown Nanaimo!

Heard the food was very good. The setting is open and pleasant and you can watch the passing scene. The waiter was hesitant, distant, and not fully informed. Service was disappointing and no interest was shown in how we felt about the food. One meal, the chicken house curry, had enough flavour to keep it from being bland; the other,... More
