We are well known for our excellent seafood dishes, wok-fired stir-fries, traditional curries and noodles, and our extensive vegan menu. We don't hold back when it comes to spices - we are serious about Thai chilies! But we always customize the spice level to your liking.

We look forward to seeing you!

Food was excellent, the staff was doing their very best but appeared to be short handed, I welcome the day that it returns to its pre Covid state with lower lights and table cloths.

We were excited to be back but they weren’t ready. We were seated, 15 minutes passed without any attention, so we left. Hopefully they’ll get it together soon

Most of our hot food items were served just a step above room temp. The shrimp in a bundle appetizer seemed like it was made days ago.

Outstanding shrimp and scallop dish - no offense, but better than many of the upscale French and Cajan restaurants we visited. Great atmosphere and service. Highly recommend for date or family night.

This is one of our favorite Thai restaurants in town. The food is flavorful and always hot out of the kitchen, the ambience is open and inviting. The Drunken Noodle, as well as the Tom kha, is the best in town and there are many unique appetizers as well as soups and salads. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. However, the server made a critical error at the end of our experience. She gave me the hand-held checkout device with the tip already selected and stood over me as I was finalizing payment. I have worked in the service industry in one of the most difficult locations in town; Bourbon Street, and I know what she was doing. She might have made even more than what she selected if she had not made this decision. Regardless, the overall experience was outstanding and I would return again.

The whole fish (red snapper) and the Whiskey Fish both tasted great, but the smell was EXCEPTIONALLY fishy. It has been my experience when fish smells fishy, it is "old" and not fresh. again. When I eat there again, and the fish smells this fishy, I will return it to the kitchen. Otherwise, this was a pleasant dining experience.

Fantastic, fresh food, the most extensive vegan menu of almost any place in New Orleans, a bartender who knows how to make a classic gin martini, and the most wheelchair accessible and friendly place we've been to in six months of looking. Kudos! We will be back.

I believe the a/c wasn’t working properly it was warm and our waiter was pretty sweaty.

I would have preferred that the basil scallops were browned a bit for more flavor. The vegetables were perfect.

We just got a really bad server who was more concerned with how his hair looked than making sure we got the best service. The menu is confusing. There are two whole fish chef's specials on the menu. The waiter failed to point that out and of course, we weren't served what we had expected. We've had many good meals here before but for some reason, the whole experience was off on this particular evening. The whole fish was disappointing. Should have stuck with the traditional curries we were used to.

We go here periodically. I too often get the Pad Thai, great, but I ought to try new things. This time I got the Pad Thai (very good, again). An Old Fashioned was good but not great. I finished, and waited, and waited, and waved, and signaled. It took at least 20 minutes just to attract the bill.

Food was good but poor service- had to ask multiple times and multiple people for basic things such as water refills and the spice rack. Was never checked up on and the food was good but the service was extremely lacking.

Even though the restaurant was mostly empty, our waitress kept rushing us to order—after we told her TWICE we were waiting for our third party. She was pushy and couldn’t read the table at all. She didn’t even point out the specials when we asked if there were any (there were and things we’d rather have ordered at that).

The “atmosphere” was cheap, ugly and boring. Our table also wobbled.

We won’t be going back.

Best Thai food I have ever put in my mouth. We had the dim sum, fresh spring rolls, pineapple curry, and the green curry. Highly recommend it. I even suggested they offer a curry flight which showcases all the ones they offer as a menu item. We will be back and we live over 2 hours away.

It was our first time dining here and our experience was excellent. We shared the the vegan fresh rolls for an appetizer, & I ordered the Caribbean Pirate which was incredible. They offer 5 different levels of spice levels, and I chose level 3 (medium), which was perfect, but level 4 (medium hot) would’ve been too hot for my liking. The service and ambiance was great as well. We will be dining here again in the near future.

Had a galentines dinner at Sukho Thai and we were seated right by the window. It was an awesome view and the drink specials were good. The service was great and despite an issue with the tab, the restaurant responded quickly and helped right away. The drunken noodles are the best

Dinner with out of town guests who needed a break from the tourist-y places they’d been going. Tea menu has many choices. Husband & I had usual order: shrimp in a pouch, edamame, drunken noodles & shrimp pad Thai (that the chef kindly removed the tails for me so I could avoid the mess of removing them.)Guests really enjoyed dishes, a vegan and a “timid tastebuds” included. Excellent as always.

We walked into SukhoThai looking forward to a Thai meal...one of favorite cuisines. The food was good but overpriced in our experience, even for New Orleans. What really made us sad about our choice was the service. Not once during our meal did our server come to the table to ask how we were doing. The restaurant was not that busy--fairly early in the evening. He didn't look happy to be there, wasn't very helpful with our questions and did not offer a dessert menu at the end.

Choose food carefully. Mixed quality, value. Some items super good (soft shell crab appetizer) others not so great (pork and Chinese broccoli) - broccoli not Chinese, totally uninteresting.
