The new menu at Sukhothai, Le Meridien Village gives you a true taste and experience of Thai cuisine and culture. If you’re a lover of Thai food, this sumptuous restaurant is for you.
We started our meal with a delicious Papaya salad, flavourful prawn satay, crispy deep-fried prawns wrapped in glass noodles and a sweet dimsum stuffed with minced meat and peanuts. After binging on these delicious appetizers, we moved on to the pomelo salad and Tom yum soup. I mean how can you go to a Thai restaurant and skip their famous sour and spicy soup right?
For mains, we tried the chicken tossed with crunchy, freshly toasted cashew nuts and vegetables, pad Thai noodles that oozed with vibrant Thai flavours, green curry with juicy king prawns and steamed sea bass that was packed with flavours but too lemony for our taste.
By now, we were quite stuffed with all the yummy food we had eaten but obviously we left a wee bit of space for dessert. We tried the pandan creme brûlée – a silky smooth custard with a rich flavour and a caramelised sugar topping and the famous Thai dessert – Tub Tim Krob which was utterly delicious.
We had a lovely, authentic Thai experience overall. Since the weather is at its best, we decided to sit outdoors and the service was spectacular. They also had a Thai performer who graciously greeted everyone with her pleasing smile and danced gracefully to soothing tunes every 30 mins.
Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to dine at a warm, comforting and sophisticated Thai restaurant with great food and service. Special thanks to Shreyas for his hospitality and recommendations.
