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.
The food was absolutely delicious, I am still thinking about the panang curry and pad thai. The service was great, very friendly, we will be back!
Yummy dinner great service. Chef prepared a meal for us that is no longer on the menu!! Was as good as I remember. Many thanks 🙏🏻
I have walked past this restaurant many times yet had never tried it until a friend recently did. She said it was best Thai restaurant she had been to in the north. My family love Thai, so we decided to try it last night. Well, we experienced great service & the most beautiful & exotic flavours by far. Will definitely be going back.
Satay were the best ive ever had and the pad grapow was just like i had in Thailand. Also the pork curry Hung Le is a must
On a hot day Sukhotthai was an air conditioned oasis.....with BYO wine we entered and enjoyed a lovely meal in a nice friendly environment. We had garlic prawns for starters which were a touch over garlic-y....we then had a curry puff with peanut sauce each and they were beautiful. For mains we shared a whole barramundi cooked with ginger and other spices with vegetables and rice. It too was tasty, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. Sharing the fish was just the right size for us, however if you were really hungry one person could polish it off quite easily.
From the moment we arrived we were treated really well. The staff were magnificent..Very kind and thoughtful...Our stay was made so very special and individualised. The rooms were very comfortable and clean..The food was amazing....A overall wonderful experience travelling to a Japanese wonderland..This was our second time and we will be back again.. Thank you
I thought the food was excellent, however, the service could have been a little more attentive. Overall, it was a great dining experience. I recommend the restaurant to anyone that wants a quiet atmosphere where you can actually have a conversation without stretching your vocal chords.
Absolutely perfect. Service, Staff friendly, polite, everything clean and well presented on table. Food was amazing and served hot and well presented. Value for money and I will be going back on a regular basis.

Fabulous authentic thai food, lovely staff, great ambience. A regular favourite. Unlike some Thai restaurants that tone down the spice their food has the marvellous blend of flavours that make thai food so delicious.
Absolutely fabulous food, authentic Thai that was fresh and flavoursome. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice. The barbecue prawns were divine and would highly recommend them
Beautiful food. A little busy on a Friday night, so perhaps there could have been a little more attention to our table after mains were served, but overall a fantastic Friday night benue
