I came again last night to this restaurant - the place was empty apart from one other couple at 9.00 pm so we ordered and, within less than 10 minutes of us sitting down, our dinner was served and looking amazging and sooo delicious!! I LOVE Pad Thai and, having been to Thailand and had it there, this restaurant certainly... More

Very authentic Thai and Malaysian food, loved the massuman curry. Food was well presented, hot and fresh. The waitress was attentive without being too visible. Party of 10 well catered for, will definitely return.

Incredibly quick service. Delicious food. Gorgeous starters. I usually have the prawn pad thai which is very generous and usually has enough left over for the next day too!

Liked all of it. Service quick - food perfect. So cheap at about £15 for two and that included a glass of wine too!

Fantastic little gem, in cute historical Hitchin. Everything seemed perfectly cooked, the complimentary mixed Prawn crackers were a nice gesture and the waitresses were extremely attentive. The Prawn tempura starter was the best i've tried anywhere, seriously melt in the mouth joy! Perfect! The steamed veg side dish, was a nice mix of veg and had no oil or anything... More

This was the first time we'd been back to Sukawatee for a long, long time, we didn't rate it previously but had heard good reports from friends so decided to try again. Every one of the mixed starters were great (I think there were six), delicious whichever of the four dipping sauces we mixed and matched with. For main we... More

I have visited once this restaurant with my children. I think it is an average restaurant with thai food. The location is excellent and it is easy to find. The price is not expensive, but the interior of the restaurant is not good in my opinion, it is quite dark and small. Food was quite tasty and service was quick... More

Was slightly reticent about our planned trip to Sukawatee, not because of the relatively few bad reviews (everyone has an off day), rather, I'd read the manager's acerbic comments in response - that lady is frightening! And just a little bit entertaining too. Customer is most certainly not always right... I can't lie, I was hotly anticipating what kind of... More
