We stopped by to get take out. We are traveling through town and decided on Thai food. The people were so nice to us. They made our order and asked for 20 minutes for us to wait. We walked around the Nevada City downtown area and returned to pick it up and they had it hot and ready. We returned... More

Great service and wonderful food. I got some sort of Mango Curry dish and it was amazing. Big portions. I ate the rest for dinner the next night. Everyone at my table was pleased with their choice. But oh the choices. Too many! It took us what felt a half hour to choose. I'm sure anything you order will come... More

The weather was so nice that we looked for a restaurant that had a patio along with good food. We love Thai food and our hosts highly recommended the restaurant to us. The patio was so lovely and the food fabulous! The heat/spice of the curry was just right...not too hot or mild. The restaurant had a really great, affordable... More

Despite some low rating reviews in yelp, we gave a try to this place, and we could not be happier about it. We ordered spicy egg plant with tofu and red curry with pineapple, cashews, & mock chicken, and both dish tasted very fresh and well seasoned.

This is great Thai food. There is a large variety of dishes including beef, chicken, pork, and vegetarian versions. Portions are quite generous. There is lovely patio for summer dining for lunch or dinner. Interior portions of the restaurant have quiet authentic décor.

More or less traditional Thai cuisine. The restaurant has a great outdoor eating area in the shade for those hot California days. Fairly broad menu. No liquor, just beer & wine.

This is a very average Thai, missing the exquisite tastes one expects from Thai food. Drive the 5 miles to Grass Valley and go to Taste of Thai on Main St, which I rate as 5 stars.

When this restaurant has the right chef on duty, it is often superb. Otherwise, good to very good. Very nice outdoor seating in good weather, and pleasant, quiet atmosphere inside.

We have never been disappointed at this restaurant. The choices are the largest problem because there are so many. One of our favorites is the Mango Red Curry with shrimp. We also enjoy the Drunken Noodles. Pick your favorite veggie dish and and you can't go wrong.

Sopa has all of the classic Thai dishes in a great setting. I love the Thai room and the patio out back when it's warm out. Some of my favorite dishes are drunken noodles, pad gra prow and any of the curries.

Thank fountained
