Really Good Thai Food!

We love Thai food and Sophia's is the best in Davis. It is located right downtown, so it's easy to fit in a lunch or dinner before a movie or an event at the Mondavi. They have a small dining room inside, but try to go when the weather is nice enough to sit outside - they have a great... read more

This was sub-part Thai food. And be warned: If you ask for something mild, they merely add more coconut milk. It makes the dish super watery -- and still spicy. We had to have them take a dish off our bill because it was so bad. Best thing was the pad thai. Service was pretty awful -- waited 20 minutes... More

I came here with my family after reading a lot of rave reviews on here, yelp, and Daviswiki, but it was honestly so disappointing. My family and I eat thai food frequently and Sophia's thai was both kind of expensive and kind of bland. The pad thai was just OK and the yellow curry wasn't anything special. Mediocre food along...

While the service can be slow in this place, this visit was the worst. About 3 tables were full a little after opening. Sat there waiting and waiting. Had to order drinks when ordering food. No server to speak of during the meal. Finally had to flag him down to get the check. And either this was his first day,... More

There are a lot of restaurants in Davis. This one has the taste and selection you expect. Never any pressure to "turn" tables. The selection is spot on. Good service and very friendly

My daughter and I go here about once a month. We usually get the heavenly beef, pad thai, jungle curry and chicken satay. We've been fans of Sophia's for over ten years. The wait can be long but it is always worth it.

Our frequent leisurely lunch spot. Almost always we have a Tom Khai Gai (chicken coconut soup), a squid salad (crispy or steamed), and a bowl of brown rice. You soak the rice in the soup, and sprinkle Thai chillies in fish sauce over the salad. It's a endorphin ruch when all washed down with a Singha bear. Service is always... More

Visited with family for lunch, enjoyed the traditional Thai taste comparing with my visits to Thailand and consuming food there. Almost authentic and tasty.

Pleasant outdoor dining. Good place to relax. Decent wine list. One of the better Thai options in Davis.

I love this menu full of flavorful dishes, I love anything with the peanut sauce, but my favorite dish combines fish, green apples, red onions and cilantro in a salad. Happy hour specials include spring rolls and beef satay.
