Sukhothai Imperial (粟库泰泰式餐厅)

img051_b01_02If you’re a Christian expat, you might be worshipping at BICF 21st Century.  If you’re like me, you would be one of the people who attend the 1130am worship service and thus will come out hungry afterwards.  Luckily, Lucky Street (好运街) is just beside 21st Century Hotel.

Lucky Street is a block of restaurants and bars for the hungry and night owls.  In this stretch, Sukhothai beckons to all Thai food lovers.  They have the traditional Tom Yam Kung Soup (RMB28/bowl), Som Tam Thai (Green Papaya Salad, RMB 29), Pad Thai (Rice Noodles with Shrimp and Peanuts, RMB 36) and Rung Nok (Sweet Bird’s Nest with Thai Coconut Milk, RMB 68).  The food their is tasty with a twist of Chinese to cater to the local people.  The interior of the restaurant is typically Thai and they also sell Thai jewelry and gift items.  Oh yeah.. slide the door to your right and not push when you enter the restaurant.

For those who live within 5 kms of the restaurant, they offer free delivery for a minimum order of RMB 50.  Beyond 5 kms, there will be an extra service charge.  To order for delivery, their number is 10-58670211.  The restaurant is open from Monday to Friday from 1030-1430 and 1700-2230 and Saturday to Sunday from 1030-2230.
