I have been using this place for the last year after my local thai in Letchworth closed down and can't belive I never knew of this place before, I'm so gutted to have missed out on all them curries all these years, the food from this place is gorgeous! I always have the vegetable yellow curry ordered to be spicer... 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

I have visited Sukawatee and number of times and the food is always outstanding, the green curry was made especially for me as I am not too keen on very spicy food and was fabulous - well done!

Great food, great service, great wine and great little atmosphere! It's like having dinner in someone's living room but must say we all loved it. Very reasonably priced, will definitely be going again.

I have ate here several times and often get take aways from this restaurant and I can honestly say it is probably the best Thai food I've tasted outside of Thailand. The staff are really nice and even when really busy they always I manage to get my order out without too many delays. The food is fantastic and if... More

The last review I wrote for this restaurant I gave 5 star, (which was generous) but we have had lovely meals in the restaurant and the food was authentic. I did not want to write this review and give 1 star but feel customers should be warned- it seems to be pot luck on whether you get a good meal... More

I've eaten at this restaurant on and off over the years. Went in recently, food has gone from good to just okay now. In truth some of the meat tastes quite cheap. But I wouldn't say it's the food that's the problem. The lady who appears to be the manager is so very rude at every opportunity. I can only... More

Have visited this place many times as it is one of the best Thai's I have been too. Having been to thailand and experienced the 'proper' thai style food, this matches up perfectly! The take away is also great - always comes hot. We normally get a starter, main and rice each for around £30 (for 2). Their red thai... More
