Long awaited visit

On visiting family in leek , went here for Saturday lunch. This is my favourite place to dine in Leek . The food is the closest to authentic Thai food I've experienced in the uk . It never disappoints on quality food . Glad to see nothing has changed.

So Thai has all the makings of a good independent restaurant such as a good menu, good staff, good atmosphere and good prices. We visited on a wet and cold Monday evening and the place was moderately occupied with around 20 diners. The staff had cleverly seated everyone in the same area, mainly for convenience but it made a much... More

I have been here several times and I have always been impressed with the place. It is my go to restaurant in my locality for Thai food. The banquet meals are excellent value for money and offer ample amounts of well cooked Thai food. Well recommended to anyone who fancies a Thai meal. The service is good as well.

Just back from a family meet up at the So Thai Restaurant in Leek, which was a very enjoyable experience. , The choice on the lunch time menu at £7 for two courses with tea or coffee, was a real surprise. All the dishes were attractively presented, and delicious, and arrived in a reasonable time.. The staff were pleasant and... More

A group of us had the two course lunch. There was a good choice for starters and an even greater choice for the main course. The flavours were very good. I enjoyed a mild chicken curry with noodles. The service wqas friendly and efficient.

All of the dishes we have tried have been fresh, hot and very tasty. You can request how spicy you would like a dish... More

Came here quite late on a Sunday night after struggling to find anywhere open, the staff were super friendly & didn't make us feel at all rushed even though we were the last ones in. The food was lovely, authentic & all came very quicky - very impressed & will definitely return on a more busy night :)
