Sukiski – Hua Hin

April 12, 2012

Sukiski is an amazing chain across Thailand of Japanese restaurants, they do an amazing sushi and soup all you can eat deal for what worked out to be about £5.

Insane.

I normally hate all you can eat, but for sushi I can get down.

The conveyor belt is for soup adds.

The place was always so packed that the sushi is super fresh, I saw tray afer tray quickly emptied and replaced in the hour we were there.

The soups are fun, you get a big pot of stock on a burner in the middle of your table, picking your flavour then adding bits where you want to.

I added lots of fresh greens…

And beautiful pieces of meat, this beef was amazing.

The pork was also great.

You can serve your soup to each other in little bowls and eat until your full or the soup has gone. I didn’t quite get there though. Too much sushi.

Some of the tofu bits in Thailand looks so strange. I didn’t try these.

There is also all you can drink stations of all kinds of crazy soft drinks and an ice cream freezer where you also help yourself!

Wear comfy clothes and skip lunch!

Sukiski are all over Thailand, we saw branches in Hua Hin, Phuket (Patong) and Bangkok and are on facebook and tripadvisor.

One of our most touristy nights was on Phuket, as you would expect!

It was the night of the full moon and Serenity hotel threw a party so we went along. We were in a much smaller hotel just along the beach so it was an easy walk, with this view…

The hotel looked amazing in the moonlight… we started the evening on a roof terrace overlooking the pool and the beach for drinks with some traditional music and lot of amazing Thai girls dressed in traditional costume milling around us.

They had a huge buffet, with lots of stations of chefs preparing traditional Thai food, with some Japanese added as well. It was all really good, I normally hate all you can eat but when it is all freshly prepared right before your eyes it’s a whole different ball game.

Beautiful spring rolls… I had about eight of these.

There was also entertainment, there was traditional dancing and music as well as a beauty contest between staff of the hotel, which was strange to say the least.

As part of the festival we also released a little flower candle onto the sea… you can read more about this here, I think we can safely say we spent the night very differently to most tourists in Thailand

So we released our krathong and made wishes for our marriage.

We also released chinese lanterns which is supposed to bring merit… again look here for more information

 Although it was very set up for tourists and hotel guests we did have a good night, the beauty contest was strange but the whole night was very funny and the hotel is lovely, we hung out here a lot eating by the pool while we were here and the food was always wonderful, especially the curries.
