Good Thai option

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.

..... because it's' all ready crowded enough at dinner time - especially on the weekends, but this is my favorite Thai restaurant anywhere - including S.F. and N.Y. The flavors are intense and the food is always so so fresh. Unlike most other Thai restaurants I have been to, there is never an oily base to the dishes. I love... More

The food is always excellent. The service is hit and miss. Usually hit--but this time was horrible. Sat for 15 minutes before being acknowledged, about as long to order dinner. Server had zero personality or service skills and had to be flagged down. The tables in this place are really close together and for some reason, the college students, parents,... More

I started eating at Sophia's back when Sophia was in the kitchen (about 19 years ago). Here personal touch and the enthusiastic staff made it a unique eating experience in Davis. The STK lacked much competition for years, even after its takeover by new owner(s). Now, its really just a bar with a restaurant in the back. I would bet... More

I love the eggplant with tofu and peppers. And the mojitos most of the time. But occasionally maybe the bartender has a day off and they aren't as good. And sometimes the food is bland. It just depends. But I have had more hits than misses. Best tofu in town. It is so fresh. And I am not that much... More

We went to this place and I had the jungle curry with chicken. It was delicious. The place is very nice and I has a good atmosphere.

I love Sophia's Thai Kitchen. I started going there when I was in college at UC Davis, and over the past 10 years since I left Davis, I have tried to find reasons to go out there to eat. The food quality has been amazing, and has stayed amazing over all these years. The last time I went, I ordered... More

I have lived in the Davis area for 10 years and saw a lot of Thai restaurants come and go. This is by far the best Thai food in Davis and has great atmosphere both in the restaurant and bar. Sophia's has been here for a long time and has some great spicy dishes. It can get very busy certain... More
