Decided to get a take away here whilst sittibg in the ice cream parlour opposite and I wasn't disappointed. It's a small restaurant but very stylish ib decor. Very welcoming staff even with my young grandson deciding to have a melt down. Food was delicious looking forward to a return visit to sit in and eat . Definitely would recommend.

Food was fresh and quite nice. Staff friendly. Decoration of restaurant could use some work, but ok. We had a big mixed starter which was fine, nothing to write home about though. The mains were better, again, nothing fantastic, but all fresh and home made. About £80 for three, including 4 beers total, so not so cheap.

Nice and warm inside Sukawatee after walking round Hitchin on a cold day. As is usual friendly greeting and fast polite service. Excellent quality food and very reasonable at under £20 for us both.

This was my 2nd visit in 2 months and I was very happy. All the food was great and I did ask for a special jungle curry extra hot. It was perfect and gave me the kick I was looking for. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they also helped me source Thai food from a local shop. Thank... More

Dear Mark, I am informed by the staff that Jungle curry is trending at the moment, you must have a strong palette requesting it extra spicy from our chef ! Good luck with your own creations now you know where to shop locally. Many thanks More

A friend took me here a while ago and I was impressed. This is definitely a budget eating house and provides good food at a very reasonable price. A main course (of real food!) for under a fiver is a "reasonable price" in my book. I have been back since with other friends and the service has always been pretty... More

Had an evening meal here and also a Satuday lunch from their business lunch menu. Both extremely good and the sat lunch was only £4.99 - excellent value for money. Good variety on the menu and well cooked. Staff very pleasant. Went here on recommendation from work colleagues and not disappointed.

Having been a number of times where food and service have been good, disappointed this time to find that customer concerns were dismissed. Ordered glass of house red to find that was mainly lees, and told that was the way it was. Unlikely to visit again.

Your glass wine should have been replaced without question apologies for this, one question had you already drunk it before complaining ? More
