We have eaten here many times and the food and service have been excellent. However, this last time was a bummer. I would normally rate them at a 4, but this one experience has left me not wanting to go back. The portions of food were small (the calamari and the coconut soup(the large) were barely enough for one person.... More

My family is regular here. We regularly eat here and taking to go. This place is consistently excellent, fast and high quality. Try any of their soups or curries. The appetizers are also great as well are the cocktails.

Been here several times and remembered those visits as ok. The menu changes which is a good thing. Promptly seat but kinda had to back up to be seated outdoors when waiting in line. Next time just seat yourself you can see the outdoor seating as you walk in. I ordered the ginger chicken stir fry "spicy", but it came... More

The bar is separate than the restaurant. I had to go to the bar and wait for a table at the restaurant. I was with a group of six adults, so the wait at the bar did not bother us. As a matter of fact, we ordered the chicken strip side dish with some margaritas, but the wait did take... More

We were on I-80 heading down the coast and got hungry - had never been to Davis although I pass-on-by many times a month. So, with time to spare we pulled over to take a look at this college town. We were in a "pedestrian-area" where there were nice shoppes interspersed with bistros - pulled into the first parking space... More

Stopped in for lunch. I have not been to Sophia's for a few years. I had a spicy chicken soup which was served with steamed rice. The soup had wonderful ginger and garlic flavor with a hint of citrus. Just excellent.

My son his girlfriend and I ran the Oktobrewfest and wanted a nice dinner afterwards. It was late and the place was crowded. We got seated in 10 but our food order took like 45min and the place had emptied out by then. Service dissappeared. Food 4 stars service 3.

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

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... More
