Area: Garhoud, Dubai
A triumph of culinary heaven awaits in Sukhothai, a quiet, unassuming and authentically classic Dubai Thai restaurant. If you ever had any doubts about Thai cuisine, this place will dispel them.
Evening diners at Sukhothai are accompanied by the kim, a traditional Thai stringed instrument. And the array of dishes is amazing and extensive. Faced with such choice, the combination starter at Sukhothai is a winner, offering little bursts of different flavours, from crab meat dumplings to chicken satay to fat prawns swaddled in noodles.
For main courses, the Tom Yum has won awards and acclaim from visiting Thai dignitaries, and the red curry is unbeatable. Seafood night on Monday at Sukhothai offers an all-you-can-eat feast. And if at the end of the evening you decide you want to take home a reminder of the exceptional meal you’ve just had at this superb Dubai Thai restaurant, on the walls are some lovely artefacts available to buy.
