Khao San Road vs Sukho Thai
Does it matter which one to go to? Ambiance/decor has no meaning to me.
Khao San Road
326 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1P7, CA
Both are fantastic and worthy of being voted "Best Thai in Toronto." If ambiance isn't of importance, I prefer Sukho Thai. The food is stunning. Their Khao Soi is the best Thai dish I've ever had.
Well, for starters, KSR is licensed and serves pork, Sukho does neither due to its proximity to a Muslim clientele. There are some core dishes in common on the two menus, but there are several differences - KSR has pad gra prao (with holy basil) and pad phed pa, more appetizers, pork versions of dishes, etc., while Sukho has pla taud (fried fish), nua gra teom, cassava cake.
I'll refrain from comparing the common dishes head-to-head since I haven't been back to Sukho since Nuit and Jeff went to KSR.
I love them both, but given the choice...well...I couldn't pick one over the other. The laid back vibe at Sukho Thai vs. the deep-fried squash blossoms at Khao San...it's a tie, really. :D
I really like both. I find the Pad Kee Mao is more flavourful and spicy at KSR (Thai spicy is hot enough for me) where as ST Thai Spicy could be a bit hotter.
I have never actually had Sukho in house, only ever take out.
I love the staff at KSR. Is it wrong that I ate at KSR 3 times since last Friday and had take out from ST once this week... I think I have a problem.
