The food at SUDA Thai is beautifully fresh, flavoursome and loveable. I would go back to SUDA again, and again, and again. Furthermore, the restaurant is located in the fantastic St. Martin`s courtyard, which is just a stone`s throw away from Covent Garden, all of the top London theatres and the buzzing Leicester Square. We visited on a busy(ish) lunch time and the external excitement transferred from the London streets, to SUDA`s serving floor. Honestly, it was a fabulous place to eat.
Drinks at SUDA are a real treat. The drinks menu consists of super fresh smoothies, for the healthier among us, and lavish alcoholic cocktails, for the slightly naughtier. We found the mix of beverages to be eclectic enough for all tastes and palates.
I tried the Signature SUDA passion -Rum with fresh passion fruit muddled with bitter lemon and sweet oranges topped with soda. This cocktail really packed a punch and was a great way to kick off the meal. And it was a bargain at £6.50! My partner tried one of the `Non Dairy` smoothies – a blend of apple juice, coconut milk, with banana and fresh Thai ginger, and it was gorgeous. Again a bargain at £3.50!
Starters are a modestly sized affair; we were served these smaller dishes that are perfect for sharing and perfect for everyone around the table to begin their journey into SUDA`s Thai cusine. I would recommend picking a few of these dishes and swapping them around, this will ensure you get a complete feel for the fantastic food on show.
We went for the Signature SUDA wrap, a fresh rice wrap with braised duck and Thai herbs. This was utterly delicious and stunningly fresh – a real delight. We also went for the more generic option of satay chicken skewers, an extremely tasty traditional dish. In short, the starters menu is extensive, exciting and packed full of flavour. Next time we may go for a few more than one each – they were simply that good!
For mains, we tried the infamous and delectable Massaman curry, a Thai favourite, which oozed warm, fulfilling spices. It is one of the tastiest curries in the world and SUDA does it beautifully. I could eat a bowl of it right now!
I would also recommend the fabulous coconut rice – unlike some types of cocunt rice, this is lovingly steamed in coconut milk for maximum depth of flavour. This side really added another dimension to the mains. Other tasty options are available, such as traditionally steamed jasmine rice and wok fried rice.
The location is fantastic, the food is scrumptious and the overall feel of SUDA is just perfect. I can`t wait to go back! If you are looking for a light lunch or an exotic meal, then this is the place for you.
