Yesterday Jon and I went for a lovely Leeds date night to Sukhothai. This restaurant is so close to our home and is such a great place to eat; we love it! We were so excited to be asked to come down and share our experience. Not only that but we will also be returning in a few weeks for a masterclass. Jon and I cannot wait to have a go at preparing some of the food ourselves.
Sukhothai is the perfect place for a Leeds date night if you want a more high-end meal, but without the hefty price tag. The food is always incredible. Their menu offers so much variety; it took us a while to choose our food! The restaurant has a lot of consideration for dietary requirements. The staff are very attentive to your needs, getting to know you a little while giving you the space you need to enjoy your evening. We loved our three-course meal, as you can see their food presentation was perfect throughout
Sukhothai Leeds Date Night
For my starter, I chose the Hed Gratium. This was mushrooms marinated in garlic and oyster sauce and was so flavourful. I also really want the bowl it was served in!
Jons started was the ‘Sai Oua’. This was Thai pork sausage, minced pork, with red curry paste and lime leaves.
For my main, I played it a little safe with Gung (prawn), Pad Thai. The dish was stir-fried noodles with eggs, bean sprouts, carrot, spring onion, ground peanuts and prawns. This was so tasty Jon ended up having quite a lot of it to eat too!
Jon’s choice of weeping tiger came out sizzling! He loved his sirloin steak, grilled Thai-style and served on a sizzling hot platter with special sauce.
The staff also brought us a different dish to try. I believe it is the Sukhothai signature spicy ‘Pearls of Sukhothai’. This recipe was divine, so enjoyable. Steamed king prawns with garlic and a hot and sour sauce, flavoured with lemon juice, galangal, lemongrass, lime leaves and coriander.
Finally, it was time to manage a dessert. The staff were lovely, giving us some time between courses before choosing our pud!
Jon chose the hot chocolate fudge cake with ice cream, and I had the lemon and ginger cheesecake. It was an unusual cheesecake with a lovely texture and flavour. The perfect end to the meal as it wasn’t too sweet or sickly.
We finished off the meal with a round of hot drinks. A brilliant end to a delicious dinner. I had a tasty latte whereas Jon stuck with English Breakfast tea.
The tea cow milk holder was maybe our favourite part of the meal.
Next time you are going for a meal out in Leeds, give Sukhothai a try. Somewhere a little different with a beautiful atmosphere and incredible food.
