I have been coming to Sugar Palm Thai restaurant since they opened. I have a personal soft spot because the servers were especially kind to my mother who had Alzheimer's. That said the dishes are made with fresh ingredients and spices. They also go beyond the standard Thai dishes to offer superb creative vegetable (eggplant), seafood and duck dishes. I... More

I've had much better Thai food in other states. I walked in as its next door to our future apartment building, we were there signing our lease. The flavors were not there. Service was good and cute little location. Wouldn't return.

The order was filled to our complete satisfaction. The delivery was faster than predicted, the food was hot, and the dishes very good. Especially liked the Panang Curry!

A modest but nicely kept restaurant. I appreciate a restaurant that looks like the management cares about its appearance. The staff was friendly and the service was pretty good but could have been more attentive. The food was good, not great but good... No complaints... It was an enjoyable meal and I'll probably try it again to order some of... More

Hard to find way to get in, hide next to Panera Bread. Have a bargain deal for lunch special and happy hour. Open view surround by glass window and high ceiling. Recommend ; Beef panang so tender with chuck of beef in red curry. Kau - Kai ; stir fired fresh wide rice noodle.

My kids and I were hungry and we went in for lunch on Saturday. I had the flounder soup and tofu. My son had the Pad Thai, and my daughter had the vegetarian rolls. I had one roll and it was very good. My soup was excellent! My son said it was one of the best Pad Thai's he's had.... More

What an awesome find - especially for lunch. The service is quick and the specials are fantastic - meal with drink for $9.95. There is a great variety and they will adjust the heat to your liking.

I have had Thai on a few times so I am, by no means, an expert. I went with a friend and she ordered for both of us. The wait staff was friend. The food was delivered quickly, it tasted good, and seemed a fair price.

I was taken here in search of good Thai and they delivered. The Panang (beef) was worth the trip by itself but other items were good as well. Service was polite and quick to refill the drinks (if you like spicy, you can appreciate this). They do takeout as well.

The service is always great and the food delicious. If you are not familiar with Thai food, talk to the waiters, they are very helpful and accommodating. This is the only place I have been able to indulge in duck meat, it is usually too oily for my liking. I have gone back several times.

Thank Derek A
