Created by S&P, the company behind London-based Thai restaurant group Patara, the 160-cover restaurant and bar will offer a regional Thai, all-day dining menu with a special bar serving Som Tam, the popular Thai dish made predominantly from shredded un-ripened papaya which varies according to region.
The restaurant, which will join Jamie's Italian, Bill's, Dishoom and Cantina Laredo at the new development off Covent Garden, was due to open in the spring, but will now open its doors to the public in September.
Menu and design
SUDA'S menu will feature a mix of traditional and contemporary dishes with old favourites such as Beef Sirloin Green Curry sitting alongside dishes such as Grilled Lamb Chop, Tamtang and Papaya Pad Thai and modern takes on traditional Thai streetfood such as Crabmeat Cigars and Fish and Prawn Cake Lollipops.
A design collaboration between Bangkok's IAW Design and UK design agency Harrison Design, the venue will include a bar on the ground floor, a Som Tam bar and restaurant on the first floor. The open kitchen will be surrounded by glass and floor to ceiling windows overlook the courtyard.
Thai-based company S&P operates four sites - Knightsbridge, South Kensington, Oxford Circus and Soho - in London under its Patara brand. It also operates restaurants in Thailand under the brands S&P, Patio, Vanilla and Golden Dragon.
