SquareMeal Review of Suda

"VERY GOOD"

This smart, modern Thai has won plenty of fans, thanks to a winning formula of friendly staff, great cocktails and dishes packed with authentic flavours. Reliable classics such as creamy satay skewers, fragrant green chicken curry, pad Thai and fiery tom yum soup are all present and correct, but we think it's far more fun to explore the rest of the wide-ranging menu. Highlights on our last visit included the richly spiced signature red curry with duck and juicy, tangy tamarind prawns. Suda's take on som tam (a classic, hot-and-spicy papaya salad from Thailand's Isan region) is always a favourite, packed with fresh and fiery flavours. Cool coconut ice cream and gut-busting banana fritters offer final temptation. To drink, there's Singha beer on draft and a decent selection of wines served from Enomatics.

A big focus on sharing plates makes this Covent Garden restaurant a good, ice-breaking host for groups. Among the boutiques and laid-back eateries of St Martin’s Courtyard, Suda Thai combines classic dishes and contemporary flavours with flexible, fairly priced menus. Step inside and – across two floors – a dark palette, wooden furniture and industrial fixtures ensure corporate crowds will settle right in. A semi-private dining area upstairs looks out across the buzzy courtyard: this space can handle drinks receptions with ease.

The atmosphere was ok, the service also though being asked what we wanted to drink 4 times in 5 minutes when we arrived was a little wearing. The food though was v disappointing. I think of Thai food as light, fresh, aromatic. This was chewy, heavy, glutinous. Tom yum was basically greasy water with a lot of chilli and a couple of prawns. Green curry lay on my stomach all evening. There was a strong aroma of lemon grass in the restaurant but I'm pretty sure it didn't come from the food. Fishcakes greasy and rubbery. I could go on but you get the picture. I saw it has 2 stars from Squaremeal which is normally a pretty reliable indicator - not this time. No exaggeration, this was low end chain restaurant standard.

Don't let the fact that the name of this establishment contains the word “Café” fool you into thinking that this is anything other than a fully-fledged restaurant. Three of us went last night and were impressed. The first surprise was to be given a choice of seating on what appeared to be a very busy night. We were advised that downstairs was quieter, so that's what we chose. The next surprise was the interesting table decorations: hand-carved wooden animals sporting the restaurant's details. Before we had come into the restaurant we had looked at the menu on display outside. It looked somewhat limited. The third surprise was to find a much fuller menu at our table with a great deal of choice. The last surprise was the rich flavours in all of our meals, surpassing what we expected. We enjoyed our starters, mains, desserts and drinks, served by friendly staff who were able to recommend both drinks and dishes, all for about £30 each. Great for a Saturday night out.

We went back again on Wednesday evening and have made a point to remember the name. of this great value for money Thai restaurant in a superb location. Discovered the huge 1st floor dinning area this time and it was really busy – last time we were early and it was pre-theatre so we ate downstairs. I had Calamrari with a sweet chilli dip followed by poached salmon. The salmon was really good – poached beautifully and the broth (sauce) was tangy and spicey. Best brown rice I have eaten – never expected to say that! Marked down slightly on the calamari – cooked beautifully (over cooked calamari is awful!) but the batter was lacking somewhat – or the oil they fried it in really need changing.
