Over the years, Sukho Thai has proven to be the finest Thai restaurant in the city. In fact, it's better than most Thai food I have eaten anywhere else in the US. They stick to the most traditional preparation of Thai cuisine, and that's all I can ask for.
The atmosphere of the original Royal St. location is cozy and comfortable. The new spot on Magazine is spacious and modern, but still comfortable. I've always liked their staff. It's a low key, family style management.
The food has flavors that never cease to surprise. I especially love the array of seafood dishes, like the sizzling salmon or the broken net soup. I also love the traditional laab gai (minty chicken I think they call it), and the green papaya salad. Of course, the place is famous for its addicted drunken noodle cult. But that goes without saying.

I love the ambience of this restaurant. I feel very relaxed and comfortable. The staff were always very nice, friendly, and helpful. I always see people I know there and everybody seems to have a good time, especially big parties that bring lots of bottles of wine like me:) I always go there before I join my friends on Frenchmen Street. I love grilled fish green curry with roti. I love the whole fish, I think it is the best whole fish I have ever had. Tom Kha is always the best here, especially on a cold day. The coconut soup just gives you a soothing feeling. I think Sukhothai has a great Tea lists. Don't miss Dragon Pearl Jasmine Tea. The aroma is amazing. Go check it out. You'll love it too.

I can't get enough of this place. If you have lived in major cities with a lot of Thai restaurants and you know Thai cuisine, you'll be disappointed by most Thai restaurants in New Orleans. Sukho is head and shoulders above the rest. The menu has a great variety of dishes, the atmosphere is casual and comfortable, and the staff are friendly. The seafood dishes are some of my favorite. The whole snapper over three flavor sauce is awesome. I even saw a couple taking a picture with one of those one night :) The lime steamed fish, pineapple seafood curry, and curried softshell crab are also best bets. The Broken Net soup has a aroma and a mix of herbs and spices in a combination seafood soup that I find myself craving time and again. Their Pad Thai is right on, and ther have a unique take on Drunken Noodles that's richer than most Thai restaurants. There are a couple of dishes with peanut sauce that I don't care for, but there so many great things to choose. Bring a bottle of wine and enjoy the night because they don't have alcohol. And be careful of the Thai hot! That's too hot for me and most anyone I know. Enjoy!

Just finished eating dinner at Sukho Thai. I was so disappointed with the food I felt that I should write this review while the bitter taste was still in my mouth. Had the Ahi Tuna appetizer which was incredibly bland. Their Thai Iced Tea was mucus-thick. Ordered the Waterfall Beef for an entree. Could only stomach two bites. It had an overwhelming chemical flavor to it. On the bright side the service was fantastic and our waitress was kind enough to take the entree off of our bill. If you are looking for good Thai food in New Orleans this is not the place. Try Bangkok Thai in the River Bend instead.

Maybe this is just Thai food from a different region than we're used to-- but we've eaten Thai a lot, and I also lived in Thailand for a month. This was pretty much the worst Thai food my husband and I have had. I'm sorry to say this about a place that is otherwise so nice. The ambience is very cool, and the service was good-- relatively quick and a friendly waitress..
We got a Tom Yum appetizer, drunken noodles and lime curry. All three dishes were extremely salty, like borderline inedible. We gulped down three glasses of water each due to the salt. The drunken noodles (Pad Kee Mao) seemed to be cooked in a soy-based sauce instead of a chili sauce-- tasting more like Pad See Euw. We did point this out to the waitress, thinking there must have been a mistake with the order, but she said it was normal for them.
After grimly eating about 1/3 of the food, we got a to-go box and paid $40 -- which seemed steep, given the quality. We decided to walk the salt off for a bit, and along the way some guy asked us if he could have our leftovers. We gladly handed them over

My sister and I went to Sukhothai to find a great Thai place in New Orleans. We arrived and waited 10 minutes to be seated, which clearly indicated a seemingly understaffed restaurant since there were only five other tables filled. However, we still gave it a chance. We wanted to eat good thai food!
We sit down. Wait 10 minutes. Nothing. The waitress's friends walk in. They get immediate drink service. We get ... nothing. Another 10 minutes pass. The waitress stops and chit chats with her friends, serves another table, and collects dirty plates from a table nearby. Yet, we still get ... nothing. So finally, another 10 minutes pass and the waitress proceeds to take her friends order. So what do we do...Leave with an empty stomach, not even able to sit in the restaurant a second longer after this rude waitress ruins our chance to eat great thai food.
Too bad, we were really looking forward to it too.

I love it so much that I want to go there at least 2-3 times a week. I'm from Bangkok Thailand just moved here to attend Tulane University. I was disappointed with La Thai and Basil Leaf with their unauthentic food but yet too expensive. Then, I found Sukho Thai when I went out with my new friends to Marigny area. I love it. I was so happy to find an authentic Thai restaurant here in New Orleans which I almost feel like eating my mom's cooking. I had Broken Net Soup and Dirty Noodle. It was a wonderful meal. My friends had Drunken Noodle, Pad Thai, Glass Noodle Spicy Salad. They also, loved their dishes. We finished with Black Rice Pudding. It was so great to discover Sukho Thai. It's really make me feel like home with the real Thai food and friendly atmosphere. Especially, they don't use MSG like other Asian restaurants. I just love it so much. I went back about 4 times in last 2 weeks. Next time I will try their vegetarian dish and I will let you all know again.

See that this restaurant hasn't been reviewed in a while. Found out why tonight. Lemon Grass Soup (so bad I threw it down the garbage disposal - WAS there any Lemon Grass in it?) along with the Chicken Satay (flat pieces of soury tasting ""mystery meat"" with cheaply made bottled sauce -- also down the disposal) ordered for dinner tonight because I was sick and craving Lemon Grass Soup and Satay for comfort.
Food arrived 45 minutes later. I'd been assured it would arrive in 20-30. Called the restaurant to complain (after I threw the food down the disposal). Clerk who answered the phone (same clerk who had trouble taking the phone order) was just plain rude. Told me ""...perhaps you don't know what Lemon Grass Soup or Satay tastes like"". Informed him I'd LIVED in Thailand for quite a few years, told him I wouldn't be ordering from them again and hung up.
5 or so minutes later, the OWNER had the CLERK call me back to tell me I wasn't welcome to order from them again! CAN you believe!?!?!?!?!? In a city where good food is so celebrated, I am, simply put, shocked. My pleasure to give them 1 star. Am a ""local"" and will NEVER recommend them to anyone. Will pass along my experience to other ""locals"". My pleasure, rude morons! Shame on you.
