Great food

To me this is the best Thai food in the city. Always great flavors and tastes fresh. No alcohol served, but you can bring your own. When I am away from New Orleans this is always one of the first places I come back to.

There have been lots of good reviews for Sukhothai on Trip Advisor which is why we went. The location in Marigny, close to the French Quarter is excellent. The staff were very friendly, the building has tons of character and the food was inexpensive. Down side was that the food itself was pretty ordinary. I eat a lot of Thai... More

While visiting in New Orleans we developed a "hankering" for Thai. Upon the recommendation from a local on the street, we chose Sukho Thai. First impression of the restaurant is of an old, tired, neighborhood restaurant which probably served mediocre food. We could not have been more wrong. The food here is beyond belief. While it is not fancy, it... More

We are huge foodies and were eating our way across New Orleans. The only place we visited twice was here. Pad Tai and Curry dishes were awesome. My only complaint was we ordered a veggie roll appetizer and paid around $8 for 2 tiny rolls cut in half. Very skimpy. Thai tea and coffee was super good.

Read the title, follow the title, you're welcome. The menu is simple thai menu staples, but every single menu item that came out to our table was delicious. Maybe some of the best pad see ewe I've had in a LONG time.

The place is at the outer edge of the French quarter (past the French Market if you are walking from, say, Jackson Square or Brewery. It is a bit hard to find. The food was reasonable but I was hoping for more flavor and aroma. It is moderately priced. The ambience is closer to a hole in the wall than... More

Fairly basic decoration like a canteen but service was fast & friendly. Bring-your-own alcohol policy may turn some people off. Food was authentic and plentiful at very reasonable prices. Would happily go back.
