There are numerous options for great meals here---we had Pad Thai; salmon; and Gai Cashew--all were delicious! The drinks were good-- nice wine pour-and the appetizers were good also. The server was young and new but she did fine. Inexpensive.

Presented promise, but went downhill when servers presented soups and salads at the same time as entree and didn't appear to get the problem. There was an offer to return entrees to kitchen, but we didn't like that option. Back to appetizers...the chicken satay was wonderful with flavorful peanut sauce. Spring rolls were very nice and dumplings were pleasant, but... More

Although my food was pretty good, the hostess who took my to go order was very rude. Nonetheless, if you can ignore the poor customer service, you're in for a decent meal.

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.
