Sophia's Thai Kitchen serves good Thai food, but given that there were, at last count, 12 Thai restaurants in Davis, it's kind of hard to know which one is really the best. Clearly, the Davis business community has decided to throw their lot in with the students at UCD, because if you look for any truly "European" cuisine, good luck.... More

The bar is loud with people who like to hear themselves guffaw, but has great ambience and drinks. You can get snacks there too, part of Sophia's strength. Although Sophia herself left years ago, her menu has persisted. This is a blessing and somewhat of a downfall. The dishes area mostly yummy, but there has been little change in the... More

I went to have lunch and order the lunch special with Pai Thai with chicken! The presentation was amazing, and the sauce they included the spring roll was INCREIBLE! The price very reasonable and the waitress super attentive without being intrusive! Super place!!!!

This place is just eccentric enough to qualify as a "go to" spot. The food is spot on. I always enjoy anything in a bowl there. Try to get an outdoor seating in the summer and the heat with the food will put you in Thailand for an hour or so. Fabulous

Very good Thai food and great service. The restaurant sits behind the bar with the same name. The snapper was excellent as were the other dishes.

This is my favorite Thai restaurant in Davis! I love the food, love the atmosphere and the service! Sophia's is a great place for a date or just a few friends to hang out for a nice evening!

Sit outside it's wonderful. I've had many dishes here, but my favorite is the calamari salad. The service is great and the place is clean with prompt service

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
