Good Thai food, wonderful location

The food is good and the location excellent. The view across the river & quay from this spot is fabulous, day or night. The food was good Thai food with some Chinese seafood dishes - as you might expect. Yes, it's pricey, but not abnormal for the neighbourhood. Check out some of the neighbouring seafood places to see how expensive things can be ! And they sell wine with dinner, at a reasonable price. The other reviewer must have been pretty hungry to have eaten lunch for $60/person !

My wife and I dined here, had a bottle of house wine, appetiser and main for under $90 all up. The Larb Moo (Minced Pork Salad) was good - fresh tasty ingredients - and we also enjoyed the very tasty Papaya Salad (Som Tam), which is surprisingly tart (not sweet at all).

Service was wonderful as well... staff ever present when needed but not annoying.

Will go back soon.

Steer clear - ridiculously overpriced

Head there at your own risk - priced ridiculously for tourists.

Had lunch there for 5 pax with a bill that came up to $300.

Example:

Prawn cake at $7 each

Kang Kong for $22

Pad Thai for $22

Sliced beef for $36

Lime juice for $6

Food is decent but a shame that the management chooses to fleece its customers, resulting in a restaurant that is empty most of the time

killed by the drinks

A late movie at the Arts House meant that Boat Quay would be my nearest dining option. Looking at the interior of Sukhothai, it looked like a fine dining setting although the bulk of the diners choose to sit outside and enjoy the night breeze by the river.

I started with the Tom Yam Gai ($5) which was quite good at a slightly higher spicy level.

I then decided to make my life easier and just picked both the chef's recommendation. The first, the beef cooked in wine sauce ($15) was a disaster. The beef was overly marinated till it has lost its original texture.

The second dish, which was supposed to be duck in ginger ($15), totally did not look or taste like its namesake. Instead, what arrived was some smoked duck in in a thick gravy sauce. The dish was not bad, it is just that it was not what I would have expected.

Finally, I had the Phak Ka Naeng Kalum ($22), or baby kailan in oyster sauce. The kailan was crunchy and did not have the usual bitter after-taste. Well done here.

As one can see, the food arrived with mixed reviews. However, what killed the night was the drinks. A lime cordial was charged at $6 and a baby coconut at $7 - typical prices for a tourist trap! Another point to note for those paying by the Standard Chartered card is that the 15% off only applies to food (and not the highly priced drinks). However, any "chef's recommendation" dishes are not discounted. If there is one reason why locals do not frequent boat quay anymore, it is due to these hidden pricing policies of the restaurants here.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
