“delicious vegetarian choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

After touring the National Civil War Medicine museum a few doors away, we decided to have lunch here. What a nice surprise! We shared the crispy tofu appetizer, Rama tofu, spicy eggplant, and panang curry. All were delicious. Service was quietly friendly, although dishes were brought out intermittently, with the last arriving when we were almost finished with the meal.

“Best Thai in Frederick!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

We were sad to see the previous restaurant close, but having eatten at Sumittra twice in the past month, it's become our favorite 'go to" place in town. The ambiance is quiet and clean, fast service, interesting menu, reasonable prices and great location... I hope they do well and become a permanant part of the downtown scene.

“Excellent Thai Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

11 June 2011

Tony and I dined at Sumittra, a new Thai restaurant in downtown Frederick Maryland. The place has tables for about 60-65 people and is set with a contemporary design with melon colored walls and pillars and exposed brick.

We started our meal with Tod Mun Pla - spicy fish cakes (four of them) that has a red curry paste and is served with a sweet chili sauce and chopped peanuts ($8). They were tasty.

For our second appetizer, I selected one of their Sumittra specials, the Peking Duck Roll - crispy duck wrapped in an Asian pancake (also with cucumber and scallions) and is served with a hoisin sauce. The sauce was the perfect sweet balance against the rich duck flavor. ($9)

One of our favorite Thai dishes is Prik Glua. We used to order it all the time at Thai place about 40 minutes from home. We've never seen it on any menu at the other Thai places in Frederick so we were pleasantly surprised. We selected the shrimp, although you can order pork, chicken, steak, seafood, or tofu & Vegetable. This dish is an explosion of flavors. The shrimp (eight large) are lightly battered and then sauteed with a chili and garlic sauce. While not as hot/spicy as the ones we've had in the past, the mix of flavors are wonderful. Rice is served with this dish. ($18).

Fresh fruit - watermelon - is provided after dinner, which is a nice touch.

The restaurant was pretty full and on the noisy side (small place) but I could tell everyone was enjoying their food and their dinner friends. Service was fine and quick, and with friendly smiles. When we were their, they didn't have their liquor license but was told by the end of June they should have it. In the meantime people BYOB. This saved on our dining bill. Prices are reasonable, although I found the seafood and shrimp selections to be a little pricey.

I saw lots of other tasty looking dishes and nice size portions too. I look forward to returning here soon. This is a keeper!
