First Thai Experience

This was my first time trying Thai Food, I had really high expectations and they were met! The food was absolutely delicious, and so was the coconut lemonade. The atmosphere is pleasant, the prices are very reasonable and the service was good. I cant't wait to visit again and try something... read more

This little Thai restaurant serves more like a fast food outlet. It's not very pricey and the service is pretty good. From what I did learn it's owned by a Scottish chap married to a local Panamanian lady. Food is above average on the few dishes that we tried except for the Tom Yum soup which was a big disappointment.... More

The place was surprisingly good for a casual dining, almost fast food style, place. We drove past it and checked their website online and check it out for dinner. Great food at a great price, huge appetisers and an altogether satisfactory experience. I recommend if you're looking for a nice casual asian meal with friends.

This little Thai restaurant was surprisingly delicious! Great selection of Thai food's usual suspects watered down a bit to accommodated a more Panamanian palate. Service was excellent, quality of ingredients was good and the Coconut Lime juice is absolutely fabulous. The setting is casual so it's appropriate with any sort of company you're with.

I was not expecting to find really good Thai food in Panama, but I needed a break from jumbo shrimp, US bred steak and corvina (sea bass) served in a variety of styles and freshness. Tom yum soup followed by Chicken Pad Thai and house special Sukhi Steak was my first very pleasant experience of this restaurant. Service was exceptionally... More

My partner and I have eaten here several times because it's one of those places that you get to like and just want something that you are used to. The service is average Panamanian (which means could be slow to medium and if you truly need something you will need to wave someone down,) but the food is great. Meals... More

Recommend for thai food lovers, personalized service, great food. You can moderate the spice level just ask the server to increase or decrease the chilly to your liking. Recommend.

Sukhi is a good spot for lunch or dinner at a good price. The decor is simple but clean. A good spot for a lunch downtown. I usually eat at the location near the Marriot in the city.

I had some sort of "curry" which was not good at all; tasted more like scented chicken than curry. We also ordered a pad Thai which was good so kudos on that one. I don't know if they messed the curry today but I will give this place a second shot

Cusine a bit more generic Asian than Thai, but at a reasonable price. Good service and central location. Seating was a little sparce as well as the parking. Usual patrons are local businesspeople and university students.
