Hotel news, opinions and updates from the team at The Sukhothai.
There is something really wonderful about going to the Farmer’s market and looking at all the beautiful, home-grown produce, herbs, plants and flowers for sale, especially in Provence, France. I simply couldn’t imagine life in the kitchen without fresh herbs. I met Chef Edouard Loubet a few years ago in Bonnieux who is exceptionally professional, polite and also charming.

Save your money and get some great value…come and try my new Sunday brunch. It is without a doubt the best in Bangkok. The food and service are outstanding.
The lobster is from the deepest and coldest waters of Maine, resulting in lobsters with meat that is firm and radiant with a clean ocean flavor. You can serve thi... Read more
Next week on Tuesday 22 Sep in our Italian restaurant La Scala, together with our talented Italian Chef, Maurizio Menconi we are going to do something real "crazy" or some would call it “madness”.
Believe it or not, we are going to bring the finest ham in the world to The Sukhothai. The name of the ham is Jamon Iberico or popularly known as the Pata Negra from Spain. The Spanish just know how to make ham, I know that La Scala just want to give you some info; this ham is made from ... Read more
