A longtime favorite for both takeout and dine-in, Brown Sugar serves dishes from all regions of Thailand. Don’t miss the clay pot selections or lesser-known dishes like kai jeow moo sub (minced pork omelet). Standard, recognizable options like chive dumplings, pad thai, and fried rice are delicious, but don’t be shy—friendly waitstaff are happy to talk you through the more authentic dishes. For an Instagram-worthy treat, go for the Siamese Twins,” sweet and sour chicken and shrimp served in a pineapple shell.

This restaurant is absolutely a student favorite. The menu is extensive, and the staff are knowledgeable about ingredients and flavors. The ambiance is lovely and the birthday celebrations are delightful when you're here. The service is wonderful. The chicken spring rolls are to die for, and the rest of the menu is filled with so many options, you just can't go wrong.
