First visit for lunch was nice, had drunken spicy noodles and panang curry, although portions were on the small side. However went back for a visit for dinner and the food was very disappointing. Dishes were very small for the price and worst of all the “Paradise” fish was not fresh. Although we ordered from the speciality dishes, none of them were outstanding, in fact were below average. Ordered satay entree, Paradise fish, cashew stir fry, massaman curry, spicy basil stir fry between 5 people as this number of dishes was advised as a possible set menu for a larger function that we were planning for, but the amount of food was barely sufficient and we had to have a second dinner elsewhere.
Staff were friendly but the waitress had poor English and was not able to take our order properly. After complaining about the fish not being fresh, nothing was offered and we were given the full bill. Very disappointing given that we were intending to use the restaurant for a large function when we were trying out the dinner.
The restaurant at the corner of the O’connell st. and the Courthouse Lane changed the name three times in about a year! Now Sukhothai seems a branch of the same name shop in Timaru.
We had their chicken satay (three skewers), Pad Thai, and green curry just as a typical Thai trial. The satay is a little too oily and the peanuts sauce a little too sweet. But tasty Pad Thai and curry made a lovely meal for us. I wondered why it has some Chinese flavor in the food. This is quite new to my Thai experience. So maybe a bit fusion more than an traditional Thai food.
The owner and other staff both friendly and tried to match our tastes excluding some veges we hate. Will come back sometimes.
