An eat in restaurant right in the heart of historical Hitchin town centre, with the option of takeaway menu and delivery. Staff friendly, polite and very helpful if you are a novice at eating Thai or Malaysian. Dishes are flavoursome, delicious. A little more expensive than Chinese but cheaper than Indian. Not only do they cater for meat eaters but... More

I needed to find a restaurant midway between where I live and where my friends live so we could "meet in the middle". I did a quick search on Google and found Sukawatee. It is always a risk when you have to rely on the recommendations of strangers through sites like this one but, I didn't know Hitchin so I... More

Have had a few meals here now foods always been amazing the drunken chicken noodles is great. Always left here feeling full and happy. Reasonably priced we feel as some Thai places charge a lot more for food that's not as nice.

Sukawatee offers great Thai food with authentic taste like chicken satay & Pad Thai. The food can be enjoyed in their restaurant or as a takeaway. The lunch option is particularly good value and the kids always enjoy the takeaway option on Fridays.

Sometimes there is a long wait for collection, but that's only because their so busy which is a good sign so order an hour in advance! It's worth it! Can't say anything but we come back time and time again... More

There wasn't anything fundamentally wrong with this restaurant. The staff were friendly, service timely, decor in-keeping with the Asian cuisine served. Sadly it was just very greasy. I wouldn't rule out giving them another shot - everyone deserves a second chance! But I would steer clear of deep fat fried options personally.

Went here with my wife for an evening meal on a recommendation. Tried the Pad Thai which was bland. Had fish with a chilli sauce, the sauce looked like it had been poured out of a bottle. Definitely won't go back.

This is one of our favourite restaurants - the food is excellent every time and reasonably priced too!! My daughter has been to Thailand and says this is as near to the authentic street food as you can get!
