We were two at Sukhothai tonight. What an amazing place! The place is run by a family of supernice Thai people. They were very warm, hospitable, and welcoming.
The food is incredibly good. We started with spring rolls and garlic chicken: deep fried little chicken fingers, Thai style, with a sweet garlicky dipping sauce. Delicious. Every piece a winner. Then, we move onto Beef Khao Soi. Unbelievably good: perfect (fatless, gristleless) pieces of brisket beef simmered in a yellow curry with egg noodles. Wow, a Thai restaurant with beef that's not scary!
Then, we had their Sukhothai Pad Thai. Very nice. Perfectly al dente rice noodles! Another first. The best Pad Thai I've had. No red ketchupy slimy mess here, folks. This was light and fresh, with a few shrimps.
Our third dish was Gaeng Panang: a savoury peanuty chicken curry with steamed white rice. Again, the chicken pieces were picture perfect each one. Not a trace of fat, gristle, bone, or anything unpleasant. Just well-trimmed boneless white chicken meat, simmered in another sublime and rich Thai sauce.
Delicious cassava cakes for dessert, and a Fanta cream soda to boot.
Thanks to those that have touted this place on CH. I can never eat at Salad King or Young Thailand again. Ever.
Run, don't walk, to Sukhothai.
