Fresh and healthy food with vegetarian options. We ordered snow peas, mushrooms,pineapple and tofu with brown rice, Thai green curry with noodles and fried banana with vanilla ice cream. All the items were very tasty and well presented.

We ordered Green Thai Curry and Tofu with Snow peas. It was just fantastic. A very cosy restaurant with good service. Lovely deserts as well. Not very expensive costs us USD 30 for two. You will find many students around from BU.

The chicken coconut curry was phenomenal. Big portions - easily splittable or bring the leftovers home. Highly recommend.

I like thai foods. But specially Brown Sugar has great foods. Chef special pineapple fried rice, drunk noodle and seafood combination with basil/ chilly pepper sauced one was great! Their birthday celebration was very impressed that looks like smal piece of cake was given to birthday guy and also fancy birthday song -karaoke music& light system- Try it!!

Taste was adjusted and could not say that it was offering authentic Thai food. Fair to go and eat Thai food in Boston area.

Every time I visit Boston, I always make time to dine in this place. For years they still maintain to serve delicious Thai food. Size of each dish is quite big, especially for Asian. Service is good. Price is reasonable. The only hurdle is to find the parking spot; take the T.

Busy Thai restaurant near Boston University. Colorful, fun fish to watch while you eat (if you are seated near a tank). We got to watch a lively clown fish. Great Thai food with lots of vegan and vegetarian choices. Quick, friendly, and conscientious wait staff.
