One of the most delicious Thai restaurants in New Zealand. The food is authentic, excellent, fresh, and absolutely delicious. The lunch is very competitively priced, comes with soup and main. Very delicious and filling. The service is not top notch, more like a well run family business than a professional fine dining establishment. But the food is as good as the food in Thailand itself. We always stop by this wonderful restaurant on our South Island trip. This is one of the busiest restaurants in Timaru as it is the only Thai restaurant in this town PLUS it also serves excellent Thai food. As a result it is always extremely busy. The owners are absolutely lovely. If you love authentic Thai food do not hesitate to stop by at Sukhothai if you visit Timaru. The food is fantastic.

We often visit this restaurant when we are passing through or staying in Timaru each year. Last year it was disappointing but we believe that was due to the lady who runs it being away in Auckland setting up a new place. This year it was once again very good. Service was back up to previous standards & the food was once again quite tasty, if a little expensive for relatively standard Thai food. Amazing what a difference one person can make to a restaurant!

If ur fortunate enough to get Anne you've hit the jackpot, we come here a few times and no matter how long it's been since the last visit she remembers our favourite meals and is so friendly and efficient.
I love Thai food and have never been disappointed with the flavour. you will love the lunch menu particularly and be prepared not to need afternoon tea the meal portions are very filling.

Warm welcome followed by a bit of a hard sell routine to order extra and quickly, bit overbearing in effect.

Otherwise, service quite quick and friendly.

Decor fine and clean.

Food fairly average, no complaints. More Chinese influence than previously encountered for a Thai.
