After craving for Thai food for the longest time, I went to Sukho Thai on a Monday for lunch. From what I have read, Sukho Thai is also owned by Khao San Road. It’s actually quite interesting to read how the couple (owner + chef who are also husband & wife) have met and started up their restaurants, http://www.sukhothaifood.ca/aboutSukho.html
Aside from Sukho Thai, they also expanded another restaurant called Sabai Sabai (post coming up shortly).
Sukho Thai wasn’t too packed when I arrived but after half an hour or so, the resto did start to fill up. It has dark and black walls, wooden tables and leather seats and a few metal pillars accompanied by jumpy music throughout.
Great thing about Sukho Thai is they do take reservations and if there is a wait, you can probably wait near the stairs that is indoor.
The waiter recommended the Khao Soi to me and I also ordered the Thai Iced Tea.
The Khao soi was good, very similar to Khao San Road‘s but I think KSR was a bit better. I asked for a medium spice and it wasn’t too spicy to me at first but it did gradually grow op me. It had a proportionate combination of the crispy stuff, noodles and chicken. Great lunch portion size for me!
The iced tea was not served cold enough but still very good and rich!
I would come back and try the Pad Thai next time.
