Being the top vote on TripAdvisor may not always be the best place to go, but this is definitely one of the best Thais we've been to. Marvellous fresh food, wonderfully spicy and served with an excellent service. Ever had staff ask you whether oyster sauce in your meal is OK as you've just ordered tofu and are probably vegetarian?... More

Suk Jai is an excellent restaurant that we frequent often - both take-away and dine-in - which, as an added bonus, is within walking distance from our home. The staff are friendly and the food is amazing. We have tried pretty much everything on the menu and can honestly say that all dishes can be recommended. Reasonable prices mean we... More

This restaurant is always accommodating to ensure their meal suits your requirements. We have dined there on many occasions with other people in our group and made requests like 'no added sugar', 'well cooked vegetables' or 'no carrots' and every time the staff have ensured those requests are fulfilled with no issues at all.

My partner and I entered Suk Jai and was warmly greeted right away, the FOH were outstandingly friendly. We ordered food to take out which came very quickly and tasted absolutely amazing. We will be back soon and will inform family and friends 😊 Thank you xxx

Dear Sunny Thank you so much for your very kind recommendation. While yesterday was not a good day for me (please read my response to user Keith's review below yours for more detail), I still try my best to deliver the best service to other customers after this very upsetting incident. This is because I did not want you to... More
