More on Sukhumvit

Long-running Suda Restaurant sits just off Sukhumvit Road and has been filling the bellies of locals and tourists for decades with cheapish and cheerful Thai-Chinese food.

Travelfish says:
While the crowd skews towards tourists in the evening, the lunch-time crowd is more the mixed office crowd, showing that this isn't a totally toned-down for tourists deal. If you like your Thai food with a punch though, do say so when ordering. The lengthy menu covers many Thai standards and crowd pleasers, from simple soups through to spicy salads and a broad range of noodle dishes.

Their stir-fried morning glory, whole fried fish and pork satay with peanut sauce all have their fans, but we’ve always been partial to the spicy pork and beef salads (namtok neua/muu) and the crab curry. It's a challenge though to have a bad meal here, as long as you’re not expecting haute cuisine. Simple plates start at around 80-100 baht with main courses around the 150 baht and up pricepoint. The beers are super ice-cold and they never seem to run out.

Food is slapped down on plastic-covered tables while you sit on plastic chairs, and the open-to-the-street design of the place creates an almost street-food style ambience. Suda can get extremely busy come the evenings; don’t be surprised if you need to stand around and wait for a table.

Service swings between prompt and friendly and glacial and indifferent, depending on how busy business is, but they will get to you eventually. The only real annoyance here are the watch-selling touts who walk between the tables shoving fake watches in your face. A polite no works ... eventually.

While not worth travelling across Bangkok to eat at, if you’re staying in the Sukhumvit area, this is a good spot to stop by at for an affordable Thai meal in a simple setting.
