Casual Thai

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... read more

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.

Charming little place around the corner from the Marriott Hotel in Campo Alegre, Ricardo Arias Ave. A good menu with a variety of Thai dishes moderately priced. The service was good and friendly. The ambience is pleasant and very casual. I ordered the Pad Thai which came with four large langostinos and it was delicious. The portions are not that... More

For me, it's difficult to enjoy eating at Asian restaurants, being of Chinese descent and having been raised eating great Chinese food. Most of the Asian restaurants are just variations of Chinese or Japanese food, so I'm usually wary of any Asian restaurant. Sukhi Thai, however, it's a great Thai restaurant, faithful to what Thai food is. I've been to... More

If I could give this place a 0, I would! My husband and I ordered delivery from Sukhi based on a recommendation from some friends. It was handsown the worst food I've eaten in a really long time, maybe ever. We ordered a wide variety of food (since we love Thai food and rarely have it). We ordered a mixed... More
