Unexpected treats on sidestreet in a lively town!
Baan Sujittra is Clonakilty and West Cork's only Thai restaurant. We serve authentic Thai food for you to enjoy in our restaurant or to take away. Sujittra Takaew (Susie) is our chef and comes from southern Thailand. Having studied in Bangkok, she arrived on our shores in 2001. After living and working on a few of West Cork's beautiful peninsulas, Susie and her family settled in Clonakilty. Baan Sujittra opened in 2013 and has proven a great success, joining a wonderful tradition of award-winning restaurants in the town. Susie learned to cook from her mother, who in turn, had learned from hers. This generational approach is a reward for the palate. She still hand grinds the spices in a pestle and mortar. Various combinations of roasted peanuts, shallots, garlic, galangal,coriander, cumin, nutmeg cinnamon cloves, kaffir lime leaves and many, many more ingredients are ground together to create the intensity and complex Thai flavours. A Thai native, Susie understands the broad spectrum of Thai cuisins. She is complemented in the kitchen by her chefs from Bangkok. The team is finished off by both local and European front of house staff. We use locally sourced produce where possible. A lot of our spices still come from Thailand to give West Cork the authentic Thai experience. The award winning produce is served with Thai flavours and passion.Thai cooking is naturally dairy free using coconut milk where necessary and a blend of spices. We can create vegetarian, vegan or gluten free options and cater for most dietary requirements. Everything is cooked from scratch to order. Let us know what your spice tolerance is and Susie's cooking will transport you back to your faraway travels or make you dream of visiting exotic faraway shores.
