Very Good Thai Quisine

Best Thai food in the area. I love their spicy eggplant and have a hard time trying other items. I have had their curries (they have yellow, red and green ones). What's nice is you get to choose vegetarian, chicken, beef or seafood for most of their dishes. You can also have your food... read more

It was a bit of a wait but food at Sopa is legend here in Nevada City. The charm of this place is pretty outstanding too. Sitting on the floor on traditional Thai pillows is a bit awkward for the unbendable but if you are into having the dining experience match the food this is a very fun place to... More

Great, fun place. The food is really good and the outside patio is a wonderfully, calm and relaxing place to enjoy your meal or an afternoon drink with appetizers.

Stop and find this place, it's worth it. I have eaten Thai all over the world and Martin and his mom Sopa have brought a few surprises with them from Bangkok, the food is spicy and wonderful.

We had dinner at Sopa Thai on a recommendation from a local Nevada City resident, and it was a good recommendation. They were quite busy, and we did not have a reservation, but they found us a seat and we were waited on promptly. The food is outstanding and the service was excellent as well. My husband had the Masaman... More

Very nice red curry on a cold winter evening. Clearly a local favorite. Good service, reasonable price and very convenient location if one is staying in central Nevada City.

Sopa is great. One of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. The patio is fantastic. The food amazing. Pra Ram, Green Curry of any kind, Drunken Noodles, Sizzling Asparagus, and Satay are some of my favorites.

Food was very good. Not salty but flavorful. Portions were large for the price. Service was horrible. No one greeted us or brought us water. We waited 10 minutes before we asked for a server to take our order. Server never returned to our table to ask us how our meal was and we even had to ask for a... More

We were headed to a concert at the Miner's Foundary and this restaurant is our "go to" place for dinner before a concert. We started with steamed mussels in a broth with Thai Basil. Very good flavor but the mussels were just a little on the tough side. Next we had Red curry with chicken and Mango. Totally one of... More
