Location: 321 Sussex St, Sydney
Booking Required: Sometimes
Thai food has become so common in the Sydney landscape that it’s hard for a restaurant to really stick out and make you want to go back. Sussex Thai manages to do that.
They do it by offering good food, at a good price in a nice location with good service. Nothing is outstanding, but the total package is hard to fault.
The entrees are really quite delicious here and whenever I come I usually get a mix of those. The chicken in banana leaves has a fantastic flavour to it and is one that I’ll always order. The mains can be a little hit and miss though. Their curries are sublime and the garlic soft shell crab an absolute monster of a dish (they must have an entire bulb of garlic on it), but the scampi wasn’t great and the stir fried pork belly is nice but almost prohibitively spicy.
But whatever you do order, it’s never a terrible disappointment, and you know that the next dish will be better.
RATING: Will return to
