Tucked away in the Gateway Shopping Plaza, Sukho Thai may be easy to miss. An unassuming entrance belies the charm of its interior and the yum factor of its food. Working hard to please patrons since 1990, owner Susie Komolsane and son Eddie Watana reign as consummate hosts over this pearl of a Thai dining experience.

The kitchen presents all the elements of Thai cuisine – sweet, salty, spicy and sour – in an array of dishes that appeals to those seeking a traditional Thai jolt. A selection of spicy curry sauces complements seafood, meat and vegetables. For those who shy away from spicy fare, the menu also offers a wide choice of palate-pleasing sauces infused with plenty of flavor without the fire: baby corn, broccoli, sweet and sour, garlic, cashew, peanut …

Sweet and sour chicken and vegetables with a hefty serving of rice for me and chicken and vegetables with basil (each for about $8) for dining partner was more than we could eat on a recent lunch visit. Spring or summer rolls and a variety of rice noodles, soups, salads and traditional deserts at reasonable prices places Sukho Thai at the top of Thai restaurants to dine at in Fort Lauderdale.

To “sweeten” the Sukho Thai dining experience, summer specials include $2 price cuts on many food items as well as a daily Happy Hour (5- 7 p.m.) with 2-for-1 drinks (beer, wine and sake) and “your favorite bottle of wine” at half price.
