They book great live music, something that's surprisingly rare around here. I do have to agree with Amart79 - the doorman/bartender Wayne is among the worst "servers" I've ever encountered in my life. Overall he's an incredibly rude, egomaniacal ass, and I've seen him treat customers like dirt over the years. How he keeps his job is beyond me, he gives an otherwise good business a terrible name. --["Users/TucoChavis"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2013-01-24 10:35:44WesHardakertis no longer around the corner from mishkas <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 5: </td> <td> Line 5: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[[Address(129 ["E Street"])]]<span>, around the corner from ["Mishka's"]</span>|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[[Address(129 ["E Street"])]]|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2013-01-13 14:35:57Amart79 <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 151: </td> <td> Line 151: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> It was enough to make me vow to never contribute one more dollar to this horribly run and unprofessional establishment. <span>I will pay top dollar and well above market value for the same product to be treated with respect and welcomed by the staff.

As a customer, I pay top dollar and well above market value for a product, if I get respectful and welcoming customer service.<br> + <br> + Unfortunately, Wayne (a bartender with black hair and a black heard) and the Sophia's staff did not feel customer service was a priority. I ordered 3 drinks on a relatively slow Saturday night, and Wayne served me 2 incorrect drinks. As an understanding consumer, I simply assumed he was having an off night, and to save them money and hassle, accepted the incorrect drinks. Finally, my third drink was correct and handed to me. I paid for all three drinks, and went about my evening. The bartender, Wayne, decided it was necessary to berate my girlfriend about the drink she ordered, claiming she "fucking stole" it from another customer, despite it being placed directly into her hand.<br> + <br> + I have never experienced such blatant, unprofessional service from an establishment. To make matters worse, I covered the bill for "Wayne's" mistake/poor customer service by paying for an extra drink. Apparently, me paying for his mistake from my own pocket was not enough.

My boyfriend and I went there for a Valentine's Day dinner, partially because of reviews praising the atmosphere, and the free thai ice tea refills (which we loved). We had the calamari as an appetizer, and calamari is something we order a lot since we both love it, but this calamari was strangely prepared. It wasn't little circular bits of fried squid, but it was in "chunks", which made it hard to eat, it was tough, and breading was so sparse. My boyfriend had pad thai (he orders this at every thai place we go to), but it was extremely underwhelming. It wasn't in the slightest bit browned, like all pad thai dishes should be, it didn't even have the traditional pad thai peanuts on top. It looked like a plate of bland, white noodles, and thai food should never, ever taste bland. I don't even remember what I had it was so unimpressive, but I'm pretty sure it was an average order of curry.<br> + <br> + I suppose it was good to try at least once, but I probably won't be going back there again. The prices were also a bit steep, compared to the other tastier thai places like Thai Nakron. Service there was also a bit disappointing. --["Users/susiebear"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2011-08-07 12:52:35StephHolmComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 120: </td> <td> Line 120: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-08-07 12:52:35'' [[nbsp]] Why are the curries so watery?

We arrived some ten minutes before they ended their lunch hour. We thought about going somewhere else but the waitress told us we could still pick a table and order lunch. That was great.<br> + <br> + However, the customer service that was provided in the next thirty minutes was horrific. A couple of waiters kept walking back and forth, trying to clear out our table whenever any of us just finished our drinks. For instant, my roommate just finished her lemonade, put the glass down and two seconds later, a waiter already picked it up, saying that he'd take the empty glass for her. No refill was offered. When we finished our food, a waitress arrived with our check. I asked to split the check. The waitress did not look happy at my request. She agreed and then turned away abruptly, rushing to the next table to give them their check. My guess is that they were also the last customers, besides us.<br> + <br> + My experience at Sophia's was rushed and not very enjoyable. Our table was constantly being cleared out as if they couldn't wait for us to leave.

We were unimpressed with the watery curry sauces then and didnt return until today. Well, first the positive. The rice was good, the cashier was nice. The food was uniformly lousy. The curries were mushy and tasteless. The food was warm, not hot. The vegetables, though at one time fresh were cooked to a point where that was no longer relevant, though the potatoes were crispy ironically. The dishes were colorful but lacked taste and depth. Thai food is known for its savory blend of flavors, garlics, basils, kafir leaves and curries. Sadly, I cook better Thai food than this, and Im not a gifted cook. Save your money, buy fresh ingredients, a thai cookbook and go to town. What a disappointment.

The first time my girlfriend and I tried it, we got sick and it tasted terrible, but we assumed it was a fluke and decided to give the restaurant another chance months later. When we came back it still tasted terrible, exactly the same as before, and we informed the waitress. She looked shocked that we could say such a thing, but apparently lots of people on here have the same opinion of it. A total waste of 10$ twice, which by the way, is much more expensive than the Tom Kha Gai at every other Thai restaurant in town.<br> - <br> - Since Tom Kha Gai is our favorite Thai dish, we will definitely never come here again.<br> - <br> - We also ordered what sounded like chicken curry off the lunch specials menu, which turned out to be just plain chicken with some vegetables with no sauce... lame. --["Users/OrofinJackson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-06-01 15:05:49'' [[nbsp]] They have the best happy hour with all of their drinks being half off.

Thai Bistro's tom kah is disgraceful compared to Sophias. The veggies are always fresh and the chicken is always tender, never oily or chewy. The wait staff can be a bit slow or rude, but the bar staff rock and are always great. If you want to have great food and avoid the wait staff, grab a seat at the bar and eat there. Take out is also an option, and I have never gotten an order wrong despite changing ingredients in my green curry from bell peppers to asparagus.

However, Sophia's is always a nice change. I enjoy their great variety of dishes that are all tofu-friendly (as a vegetarian, this is incredibly welcome). And, I enjoy the service - it has always been quick, regardless of how crowded the restaurant is. My only qualms are small - (1) I was sitting outside, so I had to constantly swat away flies, but I had chosen to sit outside and should have been aware of the impending flies - READ: not Sophia's fault. And (2), no server was present for some time when I wanted to refill my drink.<br> - <br> - Other than that, I recommend Sophia's! --["Users/irregularadverb"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-07-22 00:23:56'' [[nbsp]] Great place to grab some good food or a drink at anytime in the day (lunch time on of course). --["Users/longboardlover"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-07-22 21:59:46'' [[nbsp]] The serving was quite fancy.

Daviswikians take note that there is no bridge between the two, which I thought. I was hoping for an afternoon Mojito on the patio while I people-watch but since it was closed, I opted to tackle the famous Thai Iced Tea, made famous, well, frankly because it’s bottomless and Thai is tacked on to the name. Wikians take note that the Bar doesn’t open until 4:00 pm Monday – Friday and 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Happy Hour is from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm if you want to strategically plan your evening.<br> - <br> - I hastily make my way down the steps and make a hard right with a familiar sight – good old Davis Noodle City. I wonder to myself why it never occurred to me to investigate anything beyond Davis Noodle City whenever I ate there. I am greeted with a host who seemed rather surprised to see me. I am promptly asked if I would like to sit inside our outside (in their courtyard area). After another quick glance around and up, I notice rain clouds forming and turn to look at him with a wry but well-intentioned smile and reply with a bit of enthusiasm, “inside sounds nice”.<br> - <br> - Inside was fairly dark presumably to incite the “spirit, all compact of fire”. I could imagine a different scene during our warm summer nights where mellow tea lights resembling fireflies accompany the absence of sunlight and young star-crossed lovers gaze into each other’s eyes while exchanging bites of their dinner. Instead, there was a father who was taking his daughter out for lunch after a soccer match I presume, since she was in uniform, and an older couple who just looked like they wanted to have Thai for lunch and outside rain clouds were forming, which is unusual for a Summers afternoon in Davis. Its charm is perhaps not at its zenith during lunch, this is perhaps where former 2k Thai, Thai Nakorn, and Thai Bistro have been able to outperform Sophia’s but I am hoping at this point that the food and most importantly the tea, would redeem the fact that I’ve visited Sophia’s at the wrong time of the day. Sophia’s in the afternoon reminds of an old tavern out of a Tolkien novel: its charm stripped away during daylight hours and miraculously coming to life at night with festivities and merry songs. Despite the fact that rain clouds were forming, it seemed as if sunlight would be struggling to make its way into the dining area regardless. I realize that I am at a romantic restaurant mid-afternoon without a date, so when asked where I would like to sit inside, I naturally pointed to the “Thai Room”, designed to be intimate but much like an arena for couples to square off (there were four tables designed for four couples, one table for each couple, on each side of room). Now I’ve really set myself up for a good time. This just means my food will get all the attention it needs; the mood should be there as well. I am prompted (politely) to take off my flip-flops and put them in an upright cubby designed to hold shoes.<br> - <br> - I was delighted to discover that the cushions they provided for the literal floor seating was large enough for two people to share and further that there was the option for a patron to have two! One was more than enough however. Water was delivered as usual (rather promptly), two people were attentive to my needs: the host and my server, and I have the Thai Room all to myself. To my surprise, (although I really shouldn’t have been since the tables were low) my server drops to his knees to take my order. This makes me feel uncomfortable because I am really just looking for some good food. At this point I think I probably would have felt more comfortable with a date or with another person. I almost feel like a deity, something of the royal sort and it almost feels wrong. I am asked if I need some time to look over the menu but I already singled out the Thai Iced Tea way beforehand. I always order Pad Thai whenever I go to a Thai restaurant but to my dismay, shrimp, which I am accustomed to having, was an extra four bucks. I proceed as usual, “I’ll have the Pad Thai and Thai Iced Tea please” again with the wry forced smile.<br> - <br> - Alas, minutes after I order, my Thai Iced Tea finally arrives; glowing in its amber hue, the tea and milk still separated is the familiar presentation. Its presentation is beautiful and well executed in the classical sense, including the tall, cleanly presented glass it came in, which is also what it is usually presented in worldwide (in Thailand, it’s served over crushed ice in a translucent plastic bag). I ignore everything else and concentrate intensely on my Thai iced tea hoping for that refill as my Pad Thai arrives. Sophia’s interpretation of the Thai favorite normally met with ho-hum reviews on Daviswiki and after my second go, I would agree that the flavors fit the description. Thai Tea is usually accompanied with some form of liquid dairy: cream, whole milk, condensed milk, (usually a viscous sweet substance that is also a substitute for some sweeteners in Southern Asia as well like coffee which usually accompanies Vietnamese style coffee) evaporated milk, and even coconut milk.<br> - <br> - Since I was focused on evaluating, I shamelessly took a whiff of the tea in attempt to see if I could identify what dairy they used but with no success. After my first sip of the top I ruled out condensed, coconut, and evaporated milk, which left only cream and whole milk as an option. After several minutes however, tastes become difficult to discern because of the amount of ice that diluted it, and shortly thereafter, it quickly began to have that dreaded taste of diet. I found it slightly difficult to drink to be honest, and I am not one to usually be particularly picky with my food. It wasn’t that I had high hopes for a spectacular tea, but that I wanted the tea to redeem itself from wiki reviews. But for all its worth ($3.25), you are entitled to as much as you can drink. After my second refill, lovebirds should take note that it becomes difficult to sit (and breathe) Indian style…maybe take less bites of your food. The Thai Iced tea at Sophia’s is not spectacular, or something you go to Sophia’s for alone (sorta like I did). Instead, you should go there for a chance to spend time with an old acquaintance, a lover, or a classmate for the purpose of conversation. Grab the tea anyways, it’ll guarantee you something to do. I will certainly be back with a date and maybe not during lunch. If you are a party of one for lunch or dinner however, I recommend Davis Noodle City, which is right next door.<br> - <br> - --["Users/Enders"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-07-30 13:34:25'' [[nbsp]] The restaurant itself has the ambiance of midnight. I cannot even see anything in the restaurant, the first and last time I went there I had to strain and squint my eyes just to read the menu because of the utter darkness.<br> - <br> - They give Thai tea refills for a reason, because it is bitter and it does not taste very good.<br> - <br> - In terms of authenticity, Sophia's does not serve real "Thai" food. The food seems to be a fusion of Thai food with an American zing. Thai hot here is not spicy at all. The Pad Thai I ordered was still white and wet. The noodles are supposed to be mildly orange and semi-dry. I just feel that the food here is not truly Thai. I grew up around Thai families so my expectation of Thai food is not the average.<br> - <br> - Give it a try. It is a hit or miss. However, if you enjoy authentic Thai cuisine, I would say that this is not the place for you. --["Users/ThUn"]<br> - <br> - * Just a note, we had a Thai student and brought him to all the Thai restaurants and Sophia's was his favorite. The food used to be more spicy but I think they have made it less spicy because Thai spicy is hot. They are always happy to kick it up a notch for you when you ask.<br> - <br> - * They acknowledge that it is "country-style Thai food with a unique California flair, infusing the sweet-spicy philosophy of authentic southeast-Asian cooking with the fresh, flavorful ingredients that are the hallmark of Californian cuisine." It's Thai fusion... --["Users/StephanieRobinson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-09-18 14:50:44'' [[nbsp]] We love Sophia's!

They even asked if we preferred our tofu steamed instead of going into the fryer. I always add the sweet-spicy sauce to the Pad Thai to add some moisture &amp; kick to the noodles. I agree you should avoid ordering the tofu satay. It is not really satay, as they didn't brush it with coconut milk &amp; curry. It is just plain tofu, &amp; it wasn't good steamed or fried (no 'lil cucumber salad to accompany it either which usually comes with tofu satay). We were advised that the curries cannot be made vegan, but they did make a version of the Spicy Eggplant stir fry for us which was a delicious alternative. **(On our last visit 6/15/08, the manager let us know the Spicy Eggplant could NOT be made vegan , &amp; the server who had advised us otherwise was misinformed. Vegans/vegetarians, do not order anything they offer with curry sauce- they all contain shrimp paste.)** Another time I had the Coconut Vegetable Soup with tofu, &amp; they were able to hold the fish sauce-- also excellent. Both dishes came with a huge portion of jasmine rice on the side for no extra charge. Skip the Pad Kee Mao. It is normally one of my favs, but their version has no kick or flavor. My sweet-spicy sauce couldn't even save the dish. The waitress saw we weren't able to eat it &amp; comped it for us, a very nice gesture.<br> - Now, the bar at Sophia's is my favorite in town. I am aiming to try out most of their specialty martinis, as every one that I've had has been yummy. Their mango mojitos are the best. The bartenders are fast &amp; friendly, &amp; have great taste in music, I must add. --["Users/AprilAries"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-01-18 10:51:53'' [[nbsp]] I was in Sophia's for lunch with a couple of friends during my lunch hour from work, yesterday on Jan 17th. Normally, I have always had a great meal there, but everything went wrong with my experience yesterday. It started off with the hostess not writing down our pager number, so it took us forever to get seated. And then it turned out that that hostess was our server, which she did not greet us or take drink orders from us until we had been sitting there for quite a long time. By the time we got our food, it was almost time to head back to work. But my biggest problem, was that I had ordered a dish with fried tofu, because meat makes me sick and I'm a vegetarian, but I ended up with chicken in my dish. When I told her that it had chicken in it, and that this was not what I ordered, she acted as if it was and I finally got her to take it back, because I would NEVER order something with chicken. It was taking forever to get my meal out to me, and as I sat there watching my friends eat, while I had water, I had to finally just ask her to put my order in a to go box because I was already 20 min late to work. I finally got my order, and it was steamed tofu instead of fried. I don't like steamed tofu and would never order, so I asked to speak to a manager which she argued with me about and said there wasn't one on staff even though it was in the middle of the lunch rush. I didn't want to pay for my meal, because I have just waisted an hour and a half (of which I had to work over time to make up for the half hour she made me late) and I still didnt get the correct order. I went ahead and took it to go, because I was starving, but couldn't eat the steamed tofu, because I don't like it. My friend was kind of to pay for the 9 dollar bowl of coconut vegetable soup, that is just sitting in my fridge. I would like to get her money back and I can bring the food back if need be. Our server was very argumentive and apathetic to whole ordeal and your staff should be taught a lesson in customer service. I would have been happy if she would at least apologize for getting everything wrong, but instead she acted as if that was what I ordered and argued with me.<br> - --["Users/Miranda"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-01-30 16:27:01'' [[nbsp]] I left a comment complaining about the lunch experience I had and I emailed it to the manager as well. I have to say that the manager did a great job difusing the situation and making me feel better by just apologizing and letting me know what actions were taken so that it doesn't happen again. I really appreciated it and was pleased with how he handled it. Thank you. --["Users/Miranda"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-03 09:49:51'' [[nbsp]] I used to come to Sophia's and capitalize on the free Thai iced tea refills. My favorite dish here, BY FAR, is the Boss' curry. I used to order the green apple snapper, but one time it came out super soggy. I guess the waiters/waitresses couldn't get it out in time. I went to trivia night once...it was a lot of fun. I can see how Sophia's is a staple entertainment and dining establishment, but I wouldn't come here on a weekly basis for its food or service. --["Users/EmilyTung"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-07 11:27:36'' [[nbsp]] i must say i've never had a blander massaman curry in my life. it had chunks of dole-style canned pineapple chunks in it, peanuts, carrot slices, and onions swimming around in a watery broth. the host was rather brusque. i wouldn't normally give a final "no" to a restaurant based on one dish, but due to the popularity (i.e. excessive crowdedness) of this restaurant i'll be sticking to the other thai restaurants in davis. kudos to the owner though for using those buzz waiting things that buzz you when your table is ready. i think they're super cool. --["Users/MiranPark"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-17 22:00:06'' [[nbsp]] Nice restaurant, but the food isn't that great. I've had better Thai food in Davis. I think their only okay dish here is their silver noodles. Service is slow. Prices are average. Not over the top.

I was disappointed that they changed their Riesling. Sophia's used to have this wonderful Riesling (refreshing and not overly sweet), but I was informed that they changed brands. The new brand is okay, but what they had before was far superior. --["Users/CurlyGirl26"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-28 09:35:45'' [[nbsp]] I went here for lunch with a friend and both of us were underwhelmed by the food. I ordered a coconut soup with tofu and veggies and it had this really strange sour taste (i think it was supposed to be tangy, but it ended up tasting rancid), while she ordered a red curry noodle dish that seriously just looked like they dumped noodles into their regular red curry. Oh, it was pricey too. I don't think I'll be coming back. --["Users/AmberHMa"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-11 16:58:30'' [[nbsp]] I've eaten at 2K Thai and Thai Nakorn so I've had my decent share of Thai food in Davis. Sophia's Thai Kitchen has a lovely ambiance whether it's sitting inside, our outside mild evening. The service is super friendly, and we got our food amazingly quick. I came here with my dad and ordered Red Curry, Three Spice Fish, Pad Thai, and the garlic mushroom appetizer. The prices are all very fair and about the same as other locations, but the biggest waste of money and dissapointment was the garlic mushroom appetizer. You would think with a name like that you'd get grilled mushrooms or lightly fried mushrooms seasoned with garlic. Instead, it was $5.50 for a small bowl of mushroom soup. I had no problem paying for any of their other things, but that was the most ridiculous appetizer of all time. Their Pad Thai was mainly forgettable, it didn't produce any intricate flavors or have any kind of zing. The Red Curry was very delicious and tasty. The Three Spice Fish, although flavorful, was kind of cheap feeling. In any case, I would love to come back and try different things. --["Users/CoreyPham"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-28 09:55:46'' [[nbsp]] When it comes to the restaurant and not the bar, my friends and I only go to Sophia's for the enticing free refills. That's right boys! Time to binge and fill er'up. The food is pretty good. Portions have recently begun to get noticeably smaller but the service has always been consistently decent the 50 or so times I've been there. If you're worried about getting full order a dish that comes with rice and stuff your heart out. They haven't begun charging for rice, yet. For those with a more demanding palate I recommend walking a short distance over to Thai Bistro for a more authentic taste. That is, if you don't mind the occasional fly or no-refill Thai iced tea.</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 97: </td> <td> Line 75: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- They have three different seating "settings" to choose from all of which should match the type of dining experience you go for. Their new canopy is fantastic. Avoid sitting in the part of the restaurant near the entrance with the long tables, its heat lamps are sufficiently hot enough to kill you and the traffic will surely guarantee to interrupt your meal.<br> - <br> - Overall, I'd say Sophia's is a Davis Top 5 Restaurant.

I enjoy going here for the Thai tea mainly. I say its a fun place to go with friends, but if you're really intent on eating some good stir fry then i suggest going elsewhere. I wish the space wasn't so crowded, going to the bathroom is awkward because its so close to the kitchen, and waiters are always moving back and forth in that area.

I like to get the take out, but I should have learned my lesson by now. We almost never get what we order, so make sure you check your boxes before you leave! Usually I like the ambiance, but last time we dined at Sophia's we sat next to a couple that must know the owner. The owner was at their table every 2 minutes asking them how their food was and going on and on about how rich he is. It almost made me toss my yellow curry.

BUT the bartender poured both our drink and beer into other glasses to show us it was the usual ounces being served (at least the cups they were using at around 3 in the afternoon or so). It seems it was more an optical illusion because of the thick glass the regular glasses are made of. Just to say- at least they don't serve they're drinks in plastic cups all the time like another bar I know... -AP<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-22 00:42:30'' [[nbsp]] Definitely one of my favorite places to eat in davis. I personally think that their food is pretty good, and the prices are extremely affordable. Regular dishes top out at 9 dollars, and seafood around 12 or 13 depending. The service is usually pretty spot on and excellent, however there is a blond male server who is actually pretty bad. He seems to neglect certain tables and just seems slower than the other servers. Other than this, everything at Sophia's is excellent. Free Refills on your Thai Iced Tea!

The pad thai was mushy; came apart as you ate it, and did not come with the ordinary toppings that you usually get at the average thai restaurant (fresh, uncooked bean sprouts, ect). It did come with a side of peanuts you could put on it at least. Moreover, it seemed pretty bland without much sauce at all (although I ordered it medium, that may have something to do with it).

I got T-10, the Spicy Eggplant Stir Fry with fried tofu the first time I went to Sophia's with my co-workers and it was AMAZING. The tofu is something heavenly...it's texture is out of this world, words do not do it justice. The thai iced tea has nothing on Thai 2k (or 2k thai...whatever), and I missed the tap. pearls a lot. I spent A LOT less here on dinner than I did at 2k, which is a MAJOR PLUS. The one drawback is that they made us wait for our entire party before seating us...which means we had to wait for all our friends to show up (about a 15-20 min wait).

Service in the restaurant is friendly enough and good when they are not crowded. Bar service is cold at best. The food comes fast all the time and hot about 70% of the time. They lose about 50% of my business because you can no longer split checks. Apparently the 10 secs of time and 10 cents of credit card fees became too much a burden to continue offering what I view as an acceptable level of service. The draw back to college town restaurants that they do classless things like popping corks and pouring bottle beers at the bar instead of the table. It'd be fine if in addition pinch every penny by charging cake fees, corkage fees as though they are some sort of fancy restaurant. This once cool small local restaurant has turned into just another cookie cutter mediocre thai restaurant.

The last few times I've ordered food, the food has been beyond bland. The rice/noodle dishes that should have prominent basil flavor will not have a bit of basil flavoring unless I actually chew the leaves. I went to lunch recently and ordered the 'Thai fried rice'-- 20 minutes later, I get a dish that wasn't properly stir-fried that still had clumps of white rice w/o seasoning on it. I might as well have ordered white rice and asked for sweet/sour and sriracha sauce on the side. Another time, I shared a 9-piece appetizer platter with 3 people. We were expecting large sample portions for a $15 "platter", but each of us got 1 tiny spring roll, 1 chicken skewer and 1 shrimp tempura each. It was a rip-off. Again, the atmosphere is nice but the food is not up to par. --["Users/halona"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2010-03-15 15:49:23TomGarbersonreflecting rename <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 38: </td> <td> Line 38: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Tuesday nights feature Sophia's very popular ["Trivia Nights" Trivia Night], where teams convene, put their heads together, and answer 40 questions ["Trivia Night Categories" ranging] from geography to 80's music to ["The Big Lebowski Challenge" The Big Lebowski].

Daviswikians take note that there is no bridge between the two, which I thought. I was hoping for an afternoon Mojito on the patio while I people-watch but since it was closed, I opted to tackle the famous Thai Iced Tea, made famous, well, frankly because it’s bottomless and Thai is tacked on to the name. Wikians take note that the Bar doesn’t open until 4:00 pm Monday – Friday and 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Happy Hour is from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm if you want to strategically plan your evening.<br> + I hastily make my way down the steps and make a hard right with a familiar sight – good old Davis Noodle City. I wonder to myself why it never occurred to me to investigate anything beyond Davis Noodle City whenever I ate there. I am greeted with a host who seemed rather surprised to see me. I am promptly asked if I would like to sit inside our outside (in their courtyard area). After another quick glance around and up, I notice rain clouds forming and turn to look at him with a wry but well-intentioned smile and reply with a bit of enthusiasm, “inside sounds nice”.<br> + Inside was fairly dark presumably to incite the “spirit, all compact of fire”. I could imagine a different scene during our warm summer nights where mellow tea lights resembling fireflies accompany the absence of sunlight and young star-crossed lovers gaze into each other’s eyes while exchanging bites of their dinner. Instead, there was a father who was taking his daughter out for lunch after a soccer match I presume, since she was in uniform, and an older couple who just looked like they wanted to have Thai for lunch and outside rain clouds were forming, which is unusual for a Summers afternoon in Davis. Its charm is perhaps not at its zenith during lunch, this is perhaps where former 2k Thai, Thai Nakorn, and Thai Bistro have been able to outperform Sophia’s but I am hoping at this point that the food and most importantly the tea, would redeem the fact that I’ve visited Sophia’s at the wrong time of the day. Sophia’s in the afternoon reminds of an old tavern out of a Tolkien novel: its charm stripped away during daylight hours and miraculously coming to life at night with festivities and merry songs. Despite the fact that rain clouds were forming, it seemed as if sunlight would be struggling to make its way into the dining area regardless. I realize that I am at a romantic restaurant mid-afternoon without a date, so when asked where I would like to sit inside, I naturally pointed to the “Thai Room”, designed to be intimate but much like an arena for couples to square off (there were four tables designed for four couples, one table for each couple, on each side of room). Now I’ve really set myself up for a good time. This just means my food will get all the attention it needs; the mood should be there as well. I am prompted (politely) to take off my flip-flops and put them in an upright cubby designed to hold shoes.<br> + I was delighted to discover that the cushions they provided for the literal floor seating was large enough for two people to share and further that there was the option for a patron to have two! One was more than enough however. Water was delivered as usual (rather promptly), two people were attentive to my needs: the host and my server, and I have the Thai Room all to myself. To my surprise, (although I really shouldn’t have been since the tables were low) my server drops to his knees to take my order. This makes me feel uncomfortable because I am really just looking for some good food. At this point I think I probably would have felt more comfortable with a date or with another person. I almost feel like a deity, something of the royal sort and it almost feels wrong. I am asked if I need some time to look over the menu but I already singled out the Thai Iced Tea way beforehand. I always order Pad Thai whenever I go to a Thai restaurant but to my dismay, shrimp, which I am accustomed to having, was an extra four bucks. I proceed as usual, “I’ll have the Pad Thai and Thai Iced Tea please” again with the wry forced smile.<br> + Alas, minutes after I order, my Thai Iced Tea finally arrives; glowing in its amber hue, the tea and milk still separated is the familiar presentation. Its presentation is beautiful and well executed in the classical sense, including the tall, cleanly presented glass it came in, which is also what it is usually presented in worldwide (in Thailand, it’s served over crushed ice in a translucent plastic bag). I ignore everything else and concentrate intensely on my Thai iced tea hoping for that refill as my Pad Thai arrives. Sophia’s interpretation of the Thai favorite normally met with ho-hum reviews on Daviswiki and after my second go, I would agree that the flavors fit the description. Thai Tea is usually accompanied with some form of liquid dairy: cream, whole milk, condensed milk, (usually a viscous sweet substance that is also a substitute for some sweeteners in Southern Asia as well like coffee which usually accompanies Vietnamese style coffee) evaporated milk, and even coconut milk.<br> + Since I was focused on evaluating, I shamelessly took a whiff of the tea in attempt to see if I could identify what dairy they used but with no success. After my first sip of the top I ruled out condensed, coconut, and evaporated milk, which left only cream and whole milk as an option. After several minutes however, tastes become difficult to discern because of the amount of ice that diluted it, and shortly thereafter, it quickly began to have that dreaded taste of diet. I found it slightly difficult to drink to be honest, and I am not one to usually be particularly picky with my food. It wasn’t that I had high hopes for a spectacular tea, but that I wanted the tea to redeem itself from wiki reviews. But for all its worth ($3.25), you are entitled to as much as you can drink. After my second refill, lovebirds should take note that it becomes difficult to sit (and breathe) Indian style…maybe take less bites of your food. The Thai Iced tea at Sophia’s is not spectacular, or something you go to Sophia’s for alone (sorta like I did). Instead, you should go there for a chance to spend time with an old acquaintance, a lover, or a classmate for the purpose of conversation. Grab the tea anyways, it’ll guarantee you something to do. I will certainly be back with a date and maybe not during lunch. If you are a party of one for lunch or dinner however, I recommend Davis Noodle City, which is right next door.<br> + <br> + --["Users/Enders"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2009-07-24 02:43:57sm0729Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 181: </td> <td> Line 181: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-07-24 02:43:57'' [[nbsp]] It's all about the Thai Fried Rice and peanut sauce, baby!! --["Users/sm0729"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sophia's Thai Kitchenhttp://daviswiki.org/Sophia%27s_Thai_Kitchen2009-07-22 21:59:46MichVanComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Sophia's Thai Kitchen<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 179: </td> <td> Line 179: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-07-22 21:59:46'' [[nbsp]] The serving was quite fancy.

They may not be spectacular, but they are very solid. The prices are all mid-range (i.e. not cheap, but not absurd either), and I have yet to have something bad there. The portions have always been a bit on the small side for the price, so I generally don't get to take leftovers home, but that's not terrible. I prefer to go here for Thai in Davis, but as others have said, there really isn't a bad Thai place in Davis. They are all of about the same quality level, so it really (for me at least) boils down to environment and personal preference. --["Users/EricKlein"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-02-03 12:26:12'' [[nbsp]] So, what's up with that iced tea picture? --["Users/AmitVainsencher"]<br> - * I'm guessing that the artist wished to let us know that (a) Sophia's iced tea comes with free refills, and that (b) if you order iced tea, and squint just right, the person across from you looks somewhat naked. -- ["Users/EricKlein"]<br> - * In addition, if you talk to said person just right maybe you can go check out some of these ["makeout spots" spots] -- ["Users/rocksanddirt"]<br> - * That photo is a bit ridiculous, I can't think why that particular background is necessary.

As before, I said "I'd like it as hot as they can make it, please. I believe you call it 'Thai hot.'" The waitress said "okay," and something else I couldn't quite make out. I didn't expect anything to come of my recommendation, but this time I was pleasantly surprised: this dish was actually hot. I would even say the piquancy level was "just right." Not only that, but the meal was quite satisfying, overall. The sauce may have been "inauthentic," uncomplicated, and a tad over-sweet, but it nevertheless complemented the seafood quite well, especially the crab. Was this a fluke, or is Sophia's now taking the "Thai hot" category seriously? You'll all have to let me know. UPDATE: I think it was a fluke, since I went again and asked for 'Thai hot' and got 'Thai mild' (and the food wasn't as good, either). Perhaps there are different cooks on different nights, with varying results. I'll try to suspend judgment ;) --["Users/ZacharyNorwood"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-02-23 18:09:07'' [[nbsp]] I have been going to Sophia's on an almost weekly basis for about five years.

My friend's 'girlfriend' (or whatever you want to call her) was extremely wasted and she was just standing against the wall with a glazed look on her face (her fella was nowhere to be found). I had just gotten a drink and went over to see if she was okay. I took my eyes off her for a minute to talk to another friend of mine and the bouncer came up to her and told her she had to leave; "you've had too much to drink," etc. She had, so we found the dude and they went home. The bouncer didn't know she had friends there, does this bar regularly kick vulnerably drunk women onto the street in the middle of the night? SHADY. --["Users/AndyPastalaniec"]<br> - * I'm the owner of Sophia's and I was the one who alerted the bouncer of your friend's condition. I was standing there when my staff approached her. I can assure you, we would have NEVER sent her on her way alone, particularly in her condition. We kick out drunk people all the time, but we ALWAYS make sure they are not a danger to themselves or others when they leave. It would be irresponsible and illegal not to do so, as [http://www.cfif.org/htdocs/freedomline/current/guest_commentary/dram_shop_liability.htm Dram Shop laws] hold us accountable for people injured coming from our establishment. We always make sure that the individual's friend/party is notified. If they are alone, we call a cab and send them home at our expense. This would've been the case had you or your friend's boyfriend not been present to take care of her. Yes, there are always ways we could execute things more professionally, but kicking out drunk people can be a sensitive matter and we don't always nail it exactly right. I apologize if we seemed careless or we gave you the impression that we would ever consider kicking a "vulnerably drunk woman" onto the street. This is most definitely NOT our policy. --["Users/KevinWan"]<br> - * Thanks for setting an example for other business owners by editing the page for your business so responsibly.

I try to get something different each time I go. The cashew stir fry is very tasty and gives good spice (enough to burn your lips a little), but I must warn everyone against the lemongrass calamari. I could barely eat it; the calamari was the consistency of rubber rings, there was way too much cilantro on everything, and the lemon kind of tasted like lemon-scented dust spray. I'll definitely go there again, but I'll stick with fried calamari rather than steamed next time. --["Users/EmilyBlake"]<br> - * I second that recommendation -- the lemongrass calamari should be avoided. --["Users/AlexPomeranz"]<br> - * I would like to point out that that "lemon-scented dust spray" taste is actually what lemongrass tastes like, so if you don't like that you probably aren't going to like any true lemongrass dish. --["Users/ColeCal"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-05-13 19:57:01'' [[nbsp]] I've had much Thai food growing up and I can comfortably say that their food is not the most authentic.

In any case, I shall explain (read: defensively justify) the price increase for wiki posterity:<br> - <br> - [[nbsp]][[nbsp]][[nbsp]][[nbsp]]The price of Guinness draft--not bottle--has been at $5 for over a year now. The importer of the brand increased the price of a keg by 20%, which triggered the increase. (Business 101: Cost increases 20%, Retail Price increases 20%) Except for Guinness, we have not raised the price of our draft beers or well drinks since we opened 5 years ago. Most of our competitors have. If you went on a Davis pub crawl (I'm down if you are!), I believe you will find our pricing fairly congruent with the current market, even cheaper than other establishments (keep in mind our prices are tax inclusive). Another factor in all pricing is [http://www.answers.com/topic/customer-perceived-value customer perceived value]. Most beer drinkers would perceive an import brand like Guinness and Newcastle to have a higher premium than, say, Sierra Nevada ($4 at Sophia's). It would be fair to say, then, that the market dictates a price for that perceived premium, and you see that in the pricing at grocery stores and bars alike (ergo, Sierra &lt; Guinness). This is why liquor and beer companies spend billions of dollars on marketing: to establish that premium. So saying that a bar is gouging you because you prefer to drink [http://www.guinness.com/ expensive imported Irish stouts] that require [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrogen special carbonation] is like saying a car dealership is gouging you because you prefer to drive expensive German automobiles with leather everything that have [http://www.mbusa.com hyphenated names] on the trunk.<br> - <br> - [[nbsp]][[nbsp]][[nbsp]][[nbsp]]Make no mistake: I do believe we are on the pricier side of things when it comes bars in this town.

It even has a separate bar, with it's own exotic interior, and wooden deck for seating as well. I was there with my friends and co-workers hanging out for a few reasons, 1) Cara was leaving and we wanted to get her drunk and full to show our love, 2) It was also her birthday coming up, 3) An un-official reason, Kristin got a night semi-baby free, 4) Another un-official reason, we all were wanting some Thai food lovin' and to get a little bit mowed.<br> - <br> - The bar is known for it's live music, skilled bartenders, hot n' sexy wait staff, and dollar tequilla night (defining the quality of the tequilla, and inebreiated eagerness of the student population). Thus we were all more than happy to sample some of their drinks. We sat on the relaxing wooden bar patio for a while, people watching and chatting it up. Sophia's offers a wide range of beers, local and imported, so everyone was pretty darned happy.<br> - <br> - Appetizers like spring rolls, corn and shrimp fitters, and beef satay can be ordered at the bar as well (thai iced tea cannot). Each of the appetizers are a small meal in themselves and served with it's own unique sauces, providing an flavorful experience. The beef satay is well flavored with a perfect bit of spice and sweet peanut sauce, it has a taste of authenticity and Thai flare that goes perfect with beer. The thai springrolls with chili sauce also worked perfect with my cosmo, which was the best cosmo I ever had.<br> - <br> - We soon moved to the restaurant section (a different building across the patio) and luckilly due to knowing the hostess, got to the floor seating room. Here a lovely mural on all walls give a pleasant visual treat while you eat. We all placed our orders and made ourselves comfortable. Thai iced tea here is very flavorful, and proof God exists. It's also free refills, FREE REFILLS! Something other restaurants should learn to do.<br> - <br> - The food here is of good quality, and Davis residents laud over it constantly. However, in my own opinion, you can find better. Each dish seems to rely to much on lime, cilantro, and galangal. The curries, while flavorful, are a slight bit bland on the spice, but sweet and savoury and will definetly please you.<br> - <br> - Almost all of the dishes give you the option of adding chicken, tofu, beef, or shrimp. The Pad Thai is often bland and lifeless, a mound of noodles and peanut sauce, guaranteed to leave you disappointed. The Chicken Laap I had was a perfect toss of chicken and red onions, and exploding with lime, cilantro, and spices. It's bold and strong, and won't leave you disappointed. The glass noodles with steamed tofu, a perfect vegetarian dish, was warm with citrus and cilantro, and a cool relaxing texture, and not boring like one would expect.<br> - <br> - The whole restaurant and bar was also very baby friendly (it was 5:30 at the bar, no worries), and little Audrey for the short amount of time she was there before the mommy trade occurred, was happy and the staff were more than accommodating.<br> - <br> - Would I come again? Yeah, the place is great for a group or for a quick drink. It's all a matter of taste when it comes to Thai food, so give Sophia's a try.

I would not call it great as the food tends to be a little bland. I'm not sure if this is for a want of spice or lack of some key ingredient, but it just isn't quite right. It is, however, a great location and a great place to go with friends and share some dishes. --["Users/JohnHumperdinkle"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-12-20 22:59:10'' [[nbsp]] I came here once in the summer and never came back. Food was okay, but the service was horrible. The hostess was so obnoxious and very controlling about how the tables are oriented and where you sit around the table. She had the nerve to ask this man at the next table to sit on another side because he was obstructing traffic -- when NO ONE was even there yet! This was early in the evening before the dinner rush. She was also trying to maximize the number of people who can sit at a table, i.e. if it's a party of two, you cannot sit at a table for four, even if all the tables for two are taken. Anyway, that really ruined my dining experience and I wasn't even able to enjoy the food when it arrived.

The food here is tasty and of high quality. Particularly, the meats and produce taste fresh (not frozen/bulk) and their curries are lighter than your usual Thai fare. The waits here are ridiculously long, too long in fact (I try to avoid Fridays), which I guess is not unwarranted and attests to a satisfied clientele. The vibe in the bar is great: there's no particular "scene" and the crowd is perhaps the most eclectic you'll find among any of the bars in town. The liquor selection is extensive and varied, especially if you like Scotches and Whiskeys and the bartenders are the most skilled in Davis. (though avoid the tall one on busy nights; he can be extremely rude. Very friendly and professional staff otherwise, right down to the bouncers.) I also appreciate that they have live music.

Outside seating is great only does anyone know when they are taking down the tent? --["Users/HeatherParker"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-05-01 13:38:57'' [[nbsp]] The food, trivia nights, employees, and atmosphere make the bar and restaurant a comfortable hangout, and a good spot to take out of towners. The shrimp corn fritters are magically delicious, the Thom Kha Gai Tofu is the best Thai dish in town, and the spicy eggplant (with beef of course) is also outstanding. Their most expensive item, the Thai Seafood Medley, doesn't quite gel but the Three Flavor Fish is quite good and eight bucks cheaper. Rice is included with free refills, so their prices are identical if not better than all other Davis Thai places-- at least three of the other four Thai places (not sure about TRecipes), charge you at least $1 for tiny portions of rice. Keep in mind that Sophia's is really popular, so there's usually a wait to get into the restaurant. That said, the bar's service is excellent, and you can have a comfortable conversation there, even on the busiest nights.

While the food isn't truly authentically Thai, it deserves applause for trying to come as close as Americanly possible. It's not the best place for vegetarians.. but in SE Asian cuisine, flavor is a farce without fish sauce. Even their salad dressing is fish-sauce based. The Thai iced teas are quite refreshing and free refills are reassuring. Usually good service.. but the hours should be a bit more accomodating.

I don't think it's overpriced. It's not cheap but not expensive, either. The food is tasty and the drinks are great - except the mojito, nobody makes good mojitos anymore. Every time I've gone to the bar, the owner has been there. He's very nice and is friendly to talk to. I didn't know he was the owner until I had been back a few times.

At least in the case of Purves and Wiscombe we are dealing with the owner's of the establishment. But employers have no control over what their employees donate to. This should not influence people on whether to spend money at Sophia's. If you really want to be picky, investigate the matter and when you get a server's name adjust tip accordingly but don't assume because of one bad apple that Sophia's ain't down for the marriage equality cause. --["Users/RobRoy"]<br> - <br> - * Hear, hear! --["Users/SunjeetBaadkar"]<br> - * Exactly right. I do subscribe to the whole "you vote with your dollars" concept, but this Sophia's case is just plain silly. I can understand if you want to boycott Wal-mart for their business practices, but one employee? Come on, now. That isn't going to affect change.--["Users/CurlyGirl26"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-11-15 06:54:51'' [[nbsp]] Although I'm distraught about the results on Prop 8 and am having to put up with tons of anti-gay email because people are using my ElectionTrack.com to search donors, I agree boycotting a business based on 1 employee's contribution is silly.

An employee should not be targeted, as someone should not be eligible or ineligible for employment because of their religious or political beliefs.
