SquareMeal Review of Suksan

From the same mini stable as Sukho Thai, this neighbourhood eatery is still something of a find and a haunt worth knowing, according to local fans. Inside, Thai artefacts, bare tables and carved deities provide the trappings in a tidy, if unexceptional space, but it’s the cooking that really warrants attention here. Regional dishes such as mieng bhed (roasted duck fillet wrapped in rice paper with herbs) and pla yang (sea bass in red chilli paste served in a banana leaf) overshadow the more predictable satays, spring rolls, stir-fries and pad thais, while fans of green and red curries will find their favourites pimped up beyond the usual standard; hot-and-sour salads and classic tom yum soups also get a jazzy makeover. Be prepared for a wait at peak times.

Had another delicious meal here last week – consistently interesting and tasty food, much better than some more expensive Thai restaurants in the area… The staff are attentive without ever rushing you or intruding, and the soft shell crab is perfect.

Sometimes we would want to keep hidden gems for ourselves, because if they are discovered, it will be much harder to get a table easily. Suksan is that type of place. Opened fairly recently in the same spot as a previous Thai restaurant, the food is way above the previous one. Maybe that's why it's still undiscovered. The decor is nice and has the usual Thai artifacts found in upscale restaurants: carved wood, Thai deities, statues, etc in a contemporary setting, beige and brown. But the real treat is the food. The menu has the traditional dishes, but the quality and freshness of the ingredients and the masterful cooking is what delights. The food strikes a rare balance between flavour and subtlety. I have been at Suksan 3 or 4 times now and have tried different dishes on the menu, and have not been disappointed. I have been to similar or much more expensive Thai restaurants in London and Suksan better than most. One of the weak point is service can be overwhelmed and slow when it's busy. Here it is. The secret is out… Enjoy!
