Superb Thai food, very good service and atmosphere. I have my favourite dish, ginger duck, and order it every time. My wife is the one who varies her choices, all are good. So happy the owner moved up from Auckland, their loss, our gain.

We spent 6 years living in Asia, and visited Thailand several times, and his is the best Thai food I have eaten since! And lucky for us, it's a five minute walk from home. Loved the Tamarind Sauce dishes, and very good Pad Thai.

If you love Thai food then this is the restaurant for you. The food is amazing and the staff are incredible (we have even turned up way too early to get takeaways and the manager has opened up early for us). I cannot rate them highly enough. You will not be disappointed :)

I joined a friend for an early Saturday evening dinner - it had been a few years since I dined at Suk Jai. I am pleased to say that everything was up to their very highest standard. It was not too busy, so we were served promptly. Excellent food - I was driving so passed on wine. Highly recommended.

Chart and his tram always make you feel very welcome. The food is absolutely beautiful. There is nothing that is too much trouble for them. Have been going here for at least 6 years. Our favourite go too Thai Restaurant. Oh I shouldn't forget to mention James the giant toy Penguin who greats you at the door.

We eat here often as the food is always excellent, never had a bad meal although occasionally if you are too late they may run out of the salmon. I could tell you not to have the salmon, so more for me but truly it is just sooo good.
