Sukhothai is a fantastic chain of Thai restaurants with several locations in Leeds and one in Harrogate. The restaurant in Harrogate is highly popular with locals and visitors to the town. I have actually been before with work and I did intend to review the meal, but I got a bit carried away with free wine (I love a good corporate function!) Anyway, J and I visited Sukhothai a few weeks ago and tried the set menu (C as I remember). I did have a very embarrassing moment eating some hot and sour soup where the chilli affected me so much my face went red (trust me to put too much in my mouth at once). Anyway, the staff were very kind and brought me lots of water so I could cool down. Here’s what we ate:
Satay chicken and tiger prawns in crispy batter. Both perfectly cooked and served with a variety of dipping sauces which I thought was a nice touch. I particularly liked the satay chicken.
The infamous hot and sour soup! It was absolutely delicious, even if it did make me sweat!
Masaman chicken curry and king prawns marinated in spices and stir friend with ginger and garlic. I adore masaman curry and this one was beautiful and the chicken was so tender. The prawns were lovely too, really tasty. I don’t often pick stir friend dishes in Thai restaurants but trying this has inspired me to.
Ice cream and Thai custard. For some reason, I never order desserts in Thai restaurants now, purely because I eat so much for starter and main courses. The Thai custard was lovely and had a delicate vanilla flavour.
If you live in Harrogate, Headingly, Leeds or Chapel Allterton and you haven’t been to Sukhothai, I urge you to go now. It will make you fall in love with Thai food all over again.
