Thai fare attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Thai fare at Sukho Thai. This Groupon is valid at both the Uptown and Marigny locations.
Sukho Thai's skilled chefs compile a menu laced with indigenous Thai spices, fresh ingredients, and house-made sauces. Succulent components collide like high-velocity Lego blocks in the pineapple-seafood-curry shrimp—a seafood-and-curry appetite assailant combined with bell peppers, broccoli, and basil ($15.95). Chili sauce gurgles up around volcano soft-shell crab, a pair of soft shells served over steamed cabbage with broccoli and carrots ($23.95). As chefs prepare the curry and chili entrees, fish sizzles like raincoats made of alka-seltzer upon contact with house-made lime-garlic sauce, as whole snapper or redfish is garnished with sliced lime, fresh chilies, and fresh garlic (Market Price, typically $24.95–$29.95). Each individually prepared dish sails to tables with the patron's preferred level of spice—mild, medium, hot, or thai hot.
Named among the Top 100 Restaurants in the Times-Picayune's New Orleans Dining Guide, Sukho Thai's Marigny restaurant showcases a sunny-yellow exterior studded with crimson doors, and the Uptown location beckons to passersby with swaying palm trees. Inside the Uptown eatery, brick walls surround booths, and hanging lamps and exposed beams soar overhead, creating a cozy atmosphere for diners to tear into platters or gifts celebrating overturned traffic-court convictions.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Sukho Thai a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
The chefs at SukhoThai evoke the streets and kitchens of Thailand with balanced dishes that spotlight fresh and exotic ingredients. In addition to bowls of sinuous egg and rice noodles, they craft panang curry filled with strips of pan-fried duck breast, fresh coconut milk, and kaffir lime leaves. Waterfall beef mingles with chiles, roasted rice powder, and mint, and the steamed fish of the day swims in garlicky lime or whiskey ginger sauce. SukhoThai also rotates seasonal specials—including a recent collection inspired by Bangkok street food—through their menu on a regular basis.
