"We want diners to feel like they had a really satisfying, memorable meal experience, in a fun and casual environment, with the best value for their money," said co-owner Keith Scarmuzza. "We also want them to feel a true appreciation for the amazing culinary art that is Thai cuisine, which we feel is like the French cuisine of the East."

Food & Drink

The food is tasty and perfectly cooked. "Our Drunken Noodles and Pad Thai have always had a very strong following, but what truly separates us from the crowd are our more elaborate menu items unique to SukhoThai including our Three-Flavor Whole Redfish, our Volcano Soft-shell Crab, or our SukhoThai Royal Tom Yum Soup," Scarmuzza said.

History

As a family restaurant, owned by husband and wife, Keith and Supreeya Scarmuzza, moved back to the United States in 1998 after living in Thailand. The couple conducted their market research, sampling all the Thai restaurants in town, and were not satisfied. They both decided they wanted to have the style of food they love in Thailand. They established the restaurant in 2003.

Atmosphere

Elegantly decorated with an Asian flair, diners are transported to a lavish and upscale Thailand.

Price Point

Prices range between $21 to $30.

Unique Traits

Thai cuisine, in its authentic form, is sold at this site. :SukhoThai stands out from other Thai restaurants in the New Orleans area in that we serve the most authentic Thai style dishes in the area," Scarmuzza said."We serve high quality ingredients, and are not afraid to spice it up just the way we like it back in Thailand."

It's known as one of the spiciest restaurant in the entire New Orleans scene, not only among Thai restaurants.

Another special feature of Sukho Thai is the wide selection of Vegan and Gluten-Free menu options, which have a large following of foodies. Vegan food is actually a segment of traditional Thai cuisine.
