Was so good. Now closed. :-( All torn apart. Something new opening, unclear if it's same owners. Was the best Thai in town.

Nice little restaurant just off the sea front at Brighton. Dropped in for a late evening meal away on business. Was really surprised at how good the food was. Nicely prepared and spicy with waves of flavour. The service was very good also and the chef even checked to be sure that the meal wasn't too spicy for me. I... More

A great thai restaurant. Lovely food & good service. Decor is a bit unusual at times but that doesn't bother us. Wouldn't go there for a really romantic meal but great for a nice meal out as a couple or a meal with friends. Very reasonably priced.

We went to Sopar early on a Saturday evening. We have tried a number of Thai restaurants in Brighton and Sopar is certainly one of the best ones we have visited. Even though it was early, the restaurant was pretty full with a 40th Birthday Party group who were clearly having a great time judging by the noise they were... More

Dined here a few days ago with my wife and was quite disappointed with the outcome. First of all the restaurant lacks ambiance. It seems to me that its stuck in an 80's sort of decor and can't get out of it. The food on the other hand is good but nothing spectacular. As a starter we opted for what... More

I am a little surprised at the previous review as I have eaten at sopra many times,and it always has been excellent for food, service and value! This time again we had a fantastic meal( same as what you get in Thailand )and not like a chain Thai restaurant! Very happy and will definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Loved this restaurant so much, we went back two nights running. The food was excellent, and very friendly service. Loved the pad Thai and chicken green Thai curry . Would definitely recommend this restaurant for food, service and price . Give it a try.

Good service and good food. A very nice place to eat and a good atmosphere. The meals come separate from the dish so everyone can taste all the food on the table.
