Reasons for trip

The teenage god-daughter wanted Thai for lunch and so Suda Thai Cafe Restaurant booked for 1pm on Saturday based on Trip Advisor reviews.

The restaurant, in a quiet courtyard on Long Acre, was half way between Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations and was easy to find.

It was quiet when we entered but soon busied up during the afternoon. It’s a casual, modern dining area but with an extensive menu, all five of us found something to suit.

God-daughter is not into sharing and wanted her own portion of chicken wings to start with whilst the four grown-ups shared calamari (which came in one of those trendy mini chip baskets) and a Suda Platter for two which consisted of: chicken satay, kanom jeeb (steamed dumplings), duck roll, fish cake, prawn cake and chicken on toast. All were good and ideal for snacking on whilst interrogating god-daughter about how her first term at uni was going (appears to be lots of socialising and less study).
Two of our group shared the tasting curries – three bowls of different curries which we weren’t asked to taste, so we suspect they were good. Roy had two herbed lamb chops with salad, god-daughter, the tamarind duck and I went for a dish with the two chilli symbol, laab gai, which was minced chicken with a lovely spicy, piquant dressing.
Dishes vary in price, but are not expensive with the meat dishes around £12 although mine was only £6.75. Wine was a reasonable £18 for a bottle of Chenin Blanc (but I daren’t tell you how many we had).

There is also a pre-theatre and weekend menu with two courses for £13.75.

Service was good (prompt, professional and friendly), the music not too loud and whilst this isn’t a place for a special meal, if you want something informal, I’d highly recommend it
