It was my first experience with Thai. Very friendly staff, food was ok. But I found out I'm not that keen on thai food. But everyone who does love it loved visiting there. They are now closed because of the lava flow. They were a nice addition to Pahoa Town.

Never terrible but someday that have to learn that Garlic is NOT a dry powder but a delicious vegetable that is a mainstay of great pizzas.

This was the most incredible Thai food ever, but because of family health issues, Sukko Thai closed it's doors. Too bad. WE made it a habit of dining with this family owned restaurant.

CLOSED. I stopped by today and found them moving out due to the lava flow that is expected to cross into Pahoa soon. They said that they hope to relocate at some point but do not currently have a new location.

Great food and reasonable prices. I have to admit that if I hadn't found this place on tripadvisor.com, I may not have gone inside. Was small and quiet, but we were in for a nice surprise. The food was wonderful and made to order -- so it took a little longer to make, but it was the best!! My husband's... More

The restaurant was very crowded (which is always a good sign the food is good) but we were seated promptly by a friendly hostess. Service was equally prompt and friendly. All of the dishes we had were delicious and reasonable. You won't be disappointed with this restaurant.

After a day of busyness and hiking to the Green Sands beach, my sweetie and I were starving! We came in 15 minutes before closing, and they were kind enough to still feed our hungry tummies! The staff were incredibly thoughtful, welcoming, and kind. They brought us clean plates, extra napkins, and a bottle opener for our BYOB. We had... More

Excellent food, good price, large portions, but long wait, but absolutely worth it!!! Amazing spring roll, could be dinner by itself. And btw, I always order peanut sauce curry.

A friendly little restaurant with great food at reasonable prices. We had a good portion of tasty spring rolls for an appy and green tea. Entres were a shrimp stir fry and a chicken red curry. There was only one chef in the kitchen that night so service was a bit slow but we enjoyed playing the trivial pursuit card... More

Awesome food is worth the wait. Nothing special or fancy. Great service even dinner later on a Sunday evening. Don't expect fast since it is fresh. Our one server was working her tail off alone. Relaxed place to sit and chat with your party over Trivial Pursuit or Dr Seuss! Thx Sukothai!
