We went out with friends for a casual dinner at Sopa. This was not our first time eating at this establishment. They are always consistent with their food, and as usual, we were not disappointed. The servers are very pleasant and accommodating, the menu is very diversified, and the portions will not let you leave this restaurant hungry. Our favorite... More

In the midst of the great flood, we opted for take-out. My friends are recent newcomers to town so they are not familiar with many restaurants. We ordered 5 dishes including green papaya salad (Som Tom), pumpkin curry, and pad jantaburee. We really liked the latter! Good portion size and reasonably priced. I cannot comment on spiciness levels because my... More

Sopa has reliable Thai standards with the occasional surprise (try the crispy duck salad, or the pumpkin curry). However, their back patio is hands down the best place to eat outdoors (short of bringing a picnic to one of the many beautiful spots on the South, Middle, or North Forks of the Yuba River) in Nevada City. Great space, removed... More

Thai cuisine is one of my favs. I have visited Thailand many times and Sopa Thai serves some of the most authentic and flavorful Thai that I've had in this country. The service is great and the owner always checks in with us as to our satisfaction with our meal. Highly recommend!

Got takeout from Sopa, my wife had panang curry which was good, I had drunken noodles which I though was only ok, different flavor than I'm used to and I just didn't like it as much as others I've had, we also got some pineapple fried rice which pretty good, but still different than what I'm used to, it had...

Delicious and authentic! When you want spicy, they'll give it to you! Fresh flavours, rich creamy curries, and make sure to opt for sticky rice!

Recently had dinner at this restaurant in downtown Nevada City. Nice interior, very cozy and interesting. Between 3 of us, we shared three dishes: Drunken Noodles with Prawns, Chicken Larb, and a Duck dish with brocolli ( can't remember the name) Drunken Noodles dish was adequately spicy, the prawns were very fresh. Chicken Larb was good and the Duck was... More

I always enjoy a trip to Sopa Thai. Their food is incredible and the staff is always helpful and kind. And I love the outdoor patio, it's very relaxing.
