Friendly neighbourhood Thai in the heart of Stockbridge delivers classic favourites as well as some less-seen treats
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Up a short flight of stone steps, large Georgian windows brighten Suree Thai as they look on to intimate St Stephen’s Street in the heart of Stockbridge. The small, tasteful dining room is semi-divided into two spaces enabling both to feel cosy but not crowded. The menu is filled with traditional Thai curries and stir fries, satays and tom yums, but less often seen, and great shared as a starter, is the warm larb salad of chicken or pork, which has just enough chilli heat to wake up the palate, tempered by lime leaf and mint cool. Talay pud kee mao, piled with many scallops, mussels, squid and prawns, is coated in a mildly spicy sauce piqued with a splash of red wine, while the red Thai curry roast duck, accented with plump lychees and pineapple, is flavoursome if a bit fatty. Clearly popular with locals for dining in and delivery, the restaurant hums even on quieter evenings, while staff provide thoughtful care for their customers
