Sukjai Thai

Sukjai Thai is one of those places you’ll most probably never walk into unless you wandered off the street; at the end of a city¬† with very little to offer. Imo, its more of a backpackers haunt, what with the number of boisterous drunk guys singing songs on the street just next door/across the road… Its also a weirdly chintzy venue with hanging blue lights that transition downwards (blue rain), making everything look blue and unappealing. Its not exactly a sort of venue that appeals to me personally.

We sort of ended up here by… default? SC brought me here and I didn’t protest.

decent enough looking fitout but only if you’re into the whole disco food places

mural, singer duo setting up to sing thai tunes

ginormous cutlery. You can see the blue.

um, what is this?

more kaleidoscopic colour and a mural on that wall. And all sorts of coloured lights.

aka the worst thai green curry that the Jugernaut has ever had. Poor quality rice, that thai green curry is soup. Hard to describe but it was so overly watery that it tasted like water and had no flavour or kick. THE WORST. And I’ve had some lousy ones in my life. I asked SC, how hard is it to get a green curry right?! Its like a staple at every thai restaurant everywhere. At the time of writing this review, just got back from Newtown Thai, had a green curry. Same dish, Infinitely better.

Egg dish with mussells. I’ve had a similar dish in asia with oysters. That was good. This is actually a good dish. The mussells aren’t as good as soft oysters but its not bad. 6/10

blue looking dessert. oh wait. The light. coconut milk + waterchestnut encased in some sort of jelly. Smelly, plasticky tasting and the liquid tasted odd. $5. Very gross and was left mostly uneaten.

 

Suckjai? The odds are in Sukjai’s favour with a few people prefering it; but when I know Home Thai does great Thai in the city for about the same price, I won’t be back here. or I’ll walk up to Spice I am. The other dishes on the menu might be possibly better. They also only do cash so despite our bill costing $34, we had to go find an ATM so we can pay them. When your dishes aren’t exactly super cheap, you should at least have etpos services.
