I have now visited this resturant 3 times. Food is excellent especially the thai curries and the Tom Yum soups.Good sized portions too.I will visit again and again. Only criticism they need to get a good quality rose wine by the glass e.g zindenfel and staff a bit more attentive when ordering and paying for the meal.

On a regular basis a group of friends and I look for somewhere to eat and catch up on the latest gossip. Usually we meet at a local Indian Restaurant, but on this occasion we decided, upon recommendation, to visit Suawatee. I am so glad we did! It was busy, which was a good sign but because we booked we... More

Staying overnight in Stevenage after a few months in France, we craved some tasty, spicy food and this restaurant certainly met the bill. Good sized portions, tasty and good service certainly made it a very good experience for us. Worth pre booking as small restaurant and we are told, always busy. We can certainly see why and can readily recommend... More

My family and I love Thai food and even though it wasn't anything 'amazing' as the starters seemed to be brought in from a Chinese wholesale supermarket. The mains, however, were actually tasty and the service was quick! I would defiantly go back as Hitchen doesn't really have any outstanding restaurants so this little place is a good second choice.

Thank you for your positive review, all starters are handmade in house weekly then placed in the freezer ready for cooking/service, it would prove impossible to prepare all starters fresh to order as I am sure you would agree, looking forward to seeing you again in the near future, Highly recommend Tom Kha Kai (soup) very fresh taste (bit spicy)...

This is a lovely relaxing restaurant with good fresh food and a simple uncomplicated service. We all had different dishes and no one was disappointed. The portions were generous too. If you like Thai food then give this a try.

A small sized restaurant but don't let that detract. I visited with my girlfriend. The service was quite efficient and fine throughout the meal. The food was very nice and neither of us had any complaints. For the starter we both had fish cakes, which were very nice indeed. For the mains, a chicken dish & a fish dish, both... More

This restaurant is in Hermitage road high street, which is difficult to get parked in, (just around the corner there are two/three spacious car parks that have ample room after 6pm). I have to say and agree with another reviewer- this little Thai restaurant has improved its menu/food over the last few years... recently I was here with my sister... More

Visited for my boyfriend's birthday as we saw it had good reviews, but we were very unimpressed. The service was indifferent and at times impolite, and the food just wasn't up to standard. It was a Thursday night and not busy, but the starter was anaemic and small, and the main presented pretty badly. It just didn't look appetising, and... More

I visited here as the other thai was closed, and I'm glad I did. The food was lovely and was served hot. I highly recommend the mixed starter). Although the overall service was good, we did have a couple of issues trying to get their attention to get another drink etc. definitely worth a visit!
