This is the third time we went to Sukkho Tai this year and we were not disappointed. The dishes we ordered were delicious and the service was very prompt and friendly. We even had a delicious dessert.................:)

Pointed out error and server "oh sorry,". Accepted rather than reordering. When bill received the dishes delivered were more expensive than those ordered.

This restaurant is one of the better Thai Restaurants that I've gone to. The food was fresh and we'll portioned for the lunch menu. It certainly a restaurant that I would go back to.

This is the best Thai food in Nanaimo, the orders are large and you will take some home. The Sukkho Pad Thai cooked in peanut sauce is so very good , my wife loved the curry dish , we will come back.

My wife ordered their Chicken with Cashew Nuts ($13) and I got the Chicken and Vegetable Green Curry ($11.95). Both lunches came with a cup of broth and tofu soup,... More

We always order from here, the pad Thai and Panang is to die for! The new our door seating area gives this commercial street gem that extra bit of character. A must to if you like Thai.

The thing I love most is their consistency. The food is ALWAYS fresh and delicious with just the right amount of hit. The spring rolls are the best anywhere and I love the pad thai. I also love the cashew chicken, the tom yum soup, the red currie, the prawn wontons.......
