“Great lunch spot.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013

We have been coming to Nipa Pon for many years and have never been disappointed with our experiences there. The flavors are pretty authentic and they ask you how hot you would like your dishes. They are currently under new ownership; however, the food is still great and it seems like a lot of the old staff are still there.

“Solid Thai Food - Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

I have an ongoing obsession with Thai Basil Beef or Chicken. I love basil, and I am always looking for the perfect combination of meat/basil/chili over rice. I first fell in love with this dish in Thailand, and I'll tell you most restaurants do not get the balance right.

Nipa-Pon gets it right, at least according to my taste buds. They have many Thai favorites, and a decently priced lunch menu with solid combinations being offered.

They are on 25th avenue, which you can typically score a parking space on with relative ease. They have 7-8 tables inside but as most people get food to go you'll find a seat usually. The staff is friendly and serves you well and in a timely manner.

“Full of flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2008

The service at Nipa-Pon was extremely fast. We ordered the emerald curry, this had quite a kick to it. We also ordered the pumpkin red curry which had a thicker sauce and was excellent. They have all the typical Thai food on the menu. The atmosphere is a bit dull but fine for a quick dinner.
