Concierge.com's insider take:
The Sukhothai hotel's signature restaurant offers a calming ambience of teak, ceramics, and Thai silk in a room that appears to float over a pool of lotus blossoms. Acclaimed for its unique blend of traditional and modern Thai cuisine, the restaurant takes its name from the green ceramic glaze (meant to resemble jade) for which Thailand is known. The delicately steamed white snapper with lime juice and only a hint of chile is proof that Thai food need not be spicy to taste special. Grilled Phuket lobster is a succulent (and surprisingly healthy) option, while the green chicken curry makes for an excellent indulgence. End the meal with pumpkin custard and mango with sticky rice with fresh lemongrass tea (to aid digestion in traditional Thai style). Well-informed English-speaking waitstaff provide spot-on recommendations, and the chef is happy to make adjustments for those with less-fiery palates.
