We have frequented Suk Jai over the last 4years, either for a casual meal at lunchtime (less expensive), or a more formal evening meal(more expensive. but greater quantities of food). Either, or the food quality is excellent. Good friendly service, without any pressure. Can totally recommend.

Could not fault the service or the food. This place is always busy so can be a bit noisy. It has a lovely outdoor courtyard so a great place to go in summer.

Thank you so much, we were a little late and you were busy but slotted us in no problem. The food was fresh, flavoursome and timely, but not rushed. Definitely deserves its top rating.

Delicious food and great service! I have ordered a few different things of the menu here and always found everything I've tried is full of great flavours and cooked to perfection. I often get takeaway for lunch as they do a $12 lunch special.

As usual, the Panang Suk Jai was fantastic. Tasty and well balanced, just spicy enough! Service is great. Will continue to support our fave Thai spot!

This place is consistently well reviewed and with good reason. The food is consistently superb. We have tried many dishes and the tom yam soup is authentic and hot. Other dishes are also excellent and the service is good. My parents have also raved about this place and my son loves his pad Thai. Highly highly recommended for a good... More

We ordered Prawn Tom Yam (Thai Hot level of spiciness ) and it was really authentic and fiery hot! The beef mussamun was superb; the beef was tender and the gravy was rich and creamy! The Panang sukjai curry was also tasty and good whilst the prik king salmon reminds us the taste of Malaysian sambal. The generous use of... More
