Melbourne’s Sukhothai on Northcote’s High Street has become something of a legend since its establishment way back in 1989. Since the early days, the restaurant has made great strides, becoming the go-to Thai restaurant for residents of Northcote as well as for diners travelling from across the city. The perfect location for a romantic evening out, Sukhothai features exotic furnishings and sultry lighting, creating an enchanting and luxurious dining environment.
Taking its name from the 13th-century kingdom and capital city of old Siam, Sukhothai blends the best of traditional and contemporary ingredients and techniques to create an extraordinary dining experience at their premises on Northcote’s High Street. Led by head chef Shouguan in the kitchen, the cooking team at Sukhothai is passionate about the dishes they cook, and are proud to share their rich culinary heritage with the people of Melbourne.
Chef specialities at Melbourne’s Sukhothai include the pad grapow, a dish consisting of seafood stir-fried with capiscum, chilli, onion and Thai basil, the classic pad Thai, and the pla marnow, a steamed whole finish marinated with fresh garlic, coriander, chilli and lemon juice. Diners looking to eat healthy are encouraged to try one of Sukhothai’s fresh, crisp salads such as the incredible Yum Banana Flower, banana flower with spring onions, crushed peanut, lemon juice, coriander, toasted coconut mint, coconut milk and peanut sauce. There’s plenty more on the menu to try, so book ahead to secure a table at this Northcote legend.
