This local favorite has long been noted for its authenticity, its fresh ingredients and its warm atmosphere (if you can resist the siren call of takeout). Brown Sugar preps dishes from all regions of Thailand, which include a lot of clay pot cooking and lesser known dishes like Kai-jeow Moo-sub (minced pork omelet); those feeling adventurous can ask the waitstaff to guide them through the authentic Thai dishes. Feeling wary? Opt for the chive dumplings, country-style pad thai and pineapple fried rice instead. All should order the Siamese Twins, a mix of 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.
