Love this place but have got to get them to CUT DOWN ON THE SODIUM. The glass noodles were so salty I could barely eat them. WHY?
Great servers and Ali and John.

I was looking for somewhere to take my dad for an early Father’s Day dinner. He loves Thai food, so I looked around, and this place kept popping up as one of the best in the city. It did not disappoint!!! Everything was incredible, and I want to go back next week! We tried the shrimp-in-a-pouch, green papaya salad, seafood fried rice, drunken noodles with chicken, three flavored whole fish, and curried soft shell crab. It was all so delicious! Definitely going back soon!

Thai was our first visit and it’s was a nice experience. Caitlin, the bartender was our server and she helped us make less spicy selections to suit us. The restaurant is newly remodeled and beautiful. The owner was eating at the bar, which is always a good sign of a commitment to a quality experience. The happy hour red blend wine was excellent as well. We’re going to become regulars at this place.

The Tom kha was excellent. Fresh rolls were very good- great peanut sauce. Pineapple fried rice was a little spicy but still good.
My server, John, is top notch — cute, funny, efficient, and cute ( oops, I already said that ).
Ali is the glue that holds Sukho together.
Bustling place— reservations suggested but walk-ins welcomed if you don’t mind waiting.
Lots of to-go business

Tom Kah soup was deliciously prepared as I requested.
Pineapple fried rice was excellent , although a little too much spice this time around.
Ali oversees all. What a gem.

I had been to SukhoThai before and the food and service were fabulous. This time was a different story.
The meal started out with a lovely green papaya salad which I must say was delicious.
We ordered Thai Fried Rice next which came out a huge pile of mush. When the server was question, the response given was we changed the menu but just haven’t updated it yet. When we said we didn’t want the fried rice, we got an odd look and a huff. No additional questions.
We never got a water refill but ordered a sampler appetizer to see if our rice was a fluke. It was not.
The sampler platter was just as awful as the rice. I couldn’t eat the shrimp pouches as they smelled fishy. The “ahi” tuna sushi wrap was tasteless, cold, and gummy. But worst of all were the Thai egg rolls - tough, cold and chewy with no flavor... how is that even possible?
Add to this that we were only one of three tables so being busy wasn’t an issue.
I hate giving bad reviews but I cannot believe how bad the food was. And the lack of server interaction was minimal to say the least.

It was great to sit at the bar again. The Tom Kah was good but much creamier than last time, like they used coconut cream instead of coconut milk ( I like the milk better).
The rolls were good- freshly made. The pineapple rice was excellent.
Good service from Garland and as always, Ali.
Problem with a guy who was sitting at the bar and got up at least 6 times MASKLESS to take wine to a table. Then he’d come back, get on his phone and yell MF into it. This happened over and over and is unacceptable behavior.
Please correct

Horrible service and average food. Apparently drink specials ON THE MENU don’t get honored because they are “subject to change at moments notice” so we, the customers were expected to ask if they were still happening. Find another Thai restaurant.

We ate here on a slow weeknight...they were short on staff but the service was fine...we ordered 2 appetizers and they were so good we ordered them again. The place seems to be very clean and nice...the menu is rather complicated...but we all found something we liked. I got the green curry and it was great...I want to go back for more soon. Our table also ordered the fried soft-shell crab curry...the garlic chicken and another fish dish. Everyone thought their dish was very good. We will be going back.
