First off I am aware that it is technically a Thai restaurant. I order more or less what I would order from any Chinese takeaway I buy from. Yes the price is slightly higher here as it is restaurant quality food but you taste every penny. Order sweet and sour chicken from your average Chinese and it seems to arrive... More

Whatever the previous guy said about the staff not being attentive isn't the norm - we come here once a month or so and the staff are great - always make it a fun a night! The food is pretty good - not the great thai in the world but certainly the best around here. Some nice stuff on there... More

Thank you very much for your 5 star review much appreciated, Due to the popularity of soft shell crab they appear to have done a runner ! out of stock at present with our suppliers we are doing our best to source new supplies so fingers crossed they will be back on the menu very soon. More

This weekend we booked the Sukawatee restaurant for our anniversary meal. We arrived at the restaurant by 7.45, after sitting at the table for a few minutes we were asked if we were ready to order drinks. While we ordered our drinks we also thought we would quickly order some starters as we already knew what we liked, we then... More

Having received feed back from the staff you were requested twice to order your main meal due to the volume of orders being placed and warned of the delay, Yes I agree it is not good service to wait one hour after your starters BUT this was mainly your fault for not ordering your main sooner, also it was very...

We had a takeaway from this restaurant last night and it was brilliant, each dish was delicious and they don't use msg in their food which is great, by far the best of this type of food in Hitchin. First time I have used them but wont be the last

We were served burnt scallops and gave the waitress an opportunity to replace them or knock them off the bill. Her reply was "don't insult my husbands cooking" she was very rude so we refused to pay and left

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)...
