A champion of authentic Thai flavours, Suda is a welcome addition to the stylish St Martin’s Courtyard development, with the bonus of an inviting alfresco space. Inside, the contemporary design
includes quirky touches such as carved animals on each table, although clunky wooden stools aren’t the most comfortable perch. Thankfully, the food provides plenty of distractions – notably the som

wraps stuffed with fragrant duck, crab rolls with five-spice tofu & tamarind sauce, & lip-smacking bowls of plump rice noodles with beef & Chinese broccoli. Classic curries & soups
are also on offer, backed by wines & cocktails that are a cut above.

It's a pretty view of the courtyard: neighbouring restaurants offer al fresco dining as well and it's nice to feel a bit of a buzz from such polite punters. Foot traffic here is slow and steady so you don't feel like you're in the West End at all...

SUDA has been open for just over a year and is a sister outlet to the already well-established Soho restaurant Patara. Handily positioned off Longacre in Covent Garden, my guest and I went on a busy Wednesday lunchtime and were intrigued to see if the self-styled Thai Cafe Restaurant could deliver the authentic flavours that she,as someone whose early years were spent in Bangkok, finds so irresistible...

Where: Covent Garden Cuisine: Thai CafÃ© RestaurantSwank Levels: 4/5Suda is a fairly new restaurant and a fairly strange one at that. It is definitely swanky and it is obvious that it is also new. The entrance isnât worn out yet by the footprints of regular diners and the interior still gleams. Read more Â»
