Opened nearly 30 years ago, Sukhothai is one of a portfolio of restaurants run by Ping Mak and her business partner, Lincoln Lo (together with Tai Pan and Thai Gallery), which have established Marbella as a serious player in the Asian food scene.
The modern interior with sophisticated lighting and subtle oriental detail offers a stylish setting for lovers of good Thai food. The intimate layout of tables guarantees atmosphere and on any night of the week, diners enjoy lively ambience filled with the hum of conversation.
The menu is rich and varied, carrying more classic dishes prepared in an authentic home cooked style as well as some surprises. The successful marriage of sweet, sour, salty and spicy is key to the restaurant’s continued success. Fresh herbs and daily market produce are also a vital component of what makes the restaurant so popular.
Sukhothai is a well-treasured gem in Marbella, and it is typical to run into friends here, since once you share the secret with them, there’s no turning back…
