Night Market: Local, cheap and so so good
The night market and streets around in New Sukothai are filled every night with street stalls and the market with open air restaurants. They serve food to locals and tourists alike. Clean and good quality plus very cheap.
Favorite Dish: Try the Vegterian Jungle curry

entrance to old Sulhothai: Very local food
We were waiting for a tuktuk driver to drive us back to new Sukhothai after a pleasant tour of the Sukhothai ruins. I spotted an old woman poundind some herbs and cutting some vegetables in her kiosk. There's no menu and needless to say no English was spoken but the wonderful smell emanating from the womans mortar and pestle was too good to resist. So, with sign language we ordered whatever she was making and tasted one of the most delightful, refreshing and hot(spicy)salads I've ever tasted. This we later found out is called Som Tam (green papaya salad.) When we returned to Sydney, to my disaapointment, although there are literally thousands of thai restaurants in the city, very few had som tam in their manu. I tried making this myself but nothing can beat the first som tam I ever tasted in my life by the unknown old woman by the gates of old Sukhothai. Thank you dear old lady for introducing me to culinary heaven.
Favorite Dish: Som Tam as I really don't know what other things she had in her non written menu . She could ven have had other even more delightful food instore there but had no way of knowing then.

the coffe cup: superb
The coffee cup was a real delight.
The food was excellant. They also have an internet connection.
The staff were very friendly and a great help with information, we could also buy bus tickets to Bangkok from there.
The coffee was the best I had tried in Thailand. The information they past on about coffee was helpful, I was told always to look for Boncafe signs as many other shop sold cheap copies. I found this true.
Favorite Dish: I tried many dishes and all were equally were good. They have a small European menu. I didn't relise that a sandwich or toastie could be a pleasant change after eating too much Thai food
Dvaravati Puttarakkit: Real Thai hospitality
Not a very easy name for a restaurant, right? ;-)
This restaurant was situated next to the Lotus Village bungalows ( see accomodation tip) in New Sukhotai.
The Thai food is absolutely delicious and the setting very romantic! This is a great place to eat! The service is excellent and extremely friendly!
the coffee cup: great food and internet access
There are not many places in Old Sukhothai so addresses are not needed: the Coffee Cup has internet access, simple delicious food and and artsy toilet with plants and fishes (really the cutest toilet i have ever seen). Dinner and a soft drink is roughly 30 baht.
Favorite Dish: sweet and sour - i think pork it was... with plenty of delicious veggies!
