“Best Thai in the Northeast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

My daughter and I had the best lunch here. Highly recommend the yellow curry with duck and the drunk noodles with shrimp. We started with the Fenway salad and ended with the chilled lychees. Too much food but, to try it all. Service was relaxed and pleasant. Thai iced tea was delicious , hit with my daughter. We look forward to bringing the entire family back.

“as good as in Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This restaurant doesn't catch your eye from the exterior but it is really nice inside - optimal for a dinner with friends, family or your sweetheart. The servers are very attentive and nice and the food is just amazing: if you like very spicy go for the jungle curry. My favorites are the Panang Curry and the Green Curry and the starter plate.

“Consistently good food and a step above other food options on this block”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Close to BU and a few blocks from my favorite "restaurant row" in Allston, Brown Sugar has been a favorite Thai restaurnat for years. It is a good alternative to the fast food options in that block of Comm Ave. Easy take out options for neighbors and commuters.

Their curry is fantastic. Tons of options to choose from. A bit pricey but totally worth it. Good portion size.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Popped in for dinner after a BU men's lax game. Delicious quick meal before getting on the road to head home. A great treat for students and a restful spot for parents on the run
