We had lunch at Sumittra, a plain but comfortable restaurant in the heart of old downtown Frederick. The service was excellent, the food - appetizers and entrees - delicious, but not the best we'd ever had, the portions large, and the prices reasonable. We would return to this restaurant to dine there again.

Good Thai Food at a reasonable price. The service is excellent. The food is traditional Thai Food. People can choose the level of spiciness on their food. The service is quite quick and does not have to wait for a long time. Good atmosphere and ambiance. Great for both lunch and dinner. They also have traditional cocktails and traditional Thai...

We have just returned from a trip to the Frederick, Maryland area and had the pleasure of eating at several very nice restaurants. Sumittra may have been our very favorite. It's a small, classy space with a well-chosen menu. There were four of us dining for lunch and all I can say is that each of us sampled all of... More

We were traveling through the area today and came across Sumittra and decided to make this our lunch stop and I'm glad we did. We both got their lunch special which was the Massaman Curry Chicken and it was a nice size portion of great food for less than ten dollars. Great value for great food. Last but far from... More

Pricey for Frederick but worth every delicious bite. The shrimp appetizer is worth every delicious mouthful!

Stopped here on a Saturday night - place was busy, but we did not have problems being seated. Service was a tad slow as they may have been understaffed, but when we ordered, the food came quickly & was plenty hot. My selection was Pad Thai with shrimp (a favorite of mine) & was AWE-SOME. Apps were great, too! Interior... More

Since I was eating alone I decide to do take out. I had soup, salad and a main course. Everything was delicious. Look forward to going back next time I'm in the area.

The only reason I don't eat here regularly is because they don't serve brown rice, only white rice*. The food here is fresh and very good- had a few salads and a curry dish and enjoyed my meal very much. Our server was friendly and polite. C'mon people, white rice= unhealthy junk food; brown rice=good for you and more satisfying!... More

If you're looking for a small place to eat fantastic Thai food, this is it. Lazy Fish Sushi is it's neighbor. I love going here for the Kao Soi. It's probably one of the best I've had. Their other dishes are also fantastic as well (I haven't tried other ones but my dinner dates have never been dissatisfied).

We have been to Sumittra several times in the past couple months. It's small and intimate and the food is great! One of those places you crave. Wait staff is amazingly friendly.
