“Very Good Thai”

The Coconut Midtown
Ranked #100 of 2,148 Restaurants in Sacramento
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 May 2016

Have been a couple of times already to this little restaurant, and will go many more. The Drunken Noodles are wonderful, and all of the plates appearing on other tables looked equally enticing. The flavors are complex, and the service is very, very good. The value is good too, considering what some Thai places in the area charge. Am looking forward to going again soon.

When we mentioned to our friends we were traveling to Sacramento, they raved about the Coconut Midtown Restaurant. Wow! How right they were! We arrived on Saturday afternoon at about 2:00 PM. The place was jumpin'! However, we were seated in less than ten minutes. While waiting, we used the time to ogle the dishes people were savoring. This did not make our choices any easier because EVERYTHING looked so amazing delicious.

We decided to order the Drunken Noodles, the Avocado Green Curry, a Thai tea, and the Daily Special $2 Thai beer. For only $1 extra per entree, we ordered extra vegetables. To say the food was incredible, would be a huge understatement. The noodles were bursting with flavor from the garlic and basil. But the texture of the noodles, was so wonderful in my mouth. The flavors were complex and spicy but not overdone. The avocado green curry was spicy, and had a delicious combination of vegetables including eggplant. We savored every morsel.

Our server, Max, was friendly and assisted us in what to order. He was attentive to our needs without being overbearing. Our table was also visited by a roving server, Put, who was extremely friendly and helpful in sending us off with Thai tea to go. All of the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful.

We have added the Coconut Midtown to our list of must visit restaurants when we're in Sacramento. We also learned there is a sister restaurant near old town named The Coconut on "T". We are very much looking forward to trying so many of the dishes on the menu.

The Coconut Midtown was downright DELICIOUS. Atmosphere is simple- the focus is on the FOOD.
It was my first visit last week, but I loved the Pad See Ew and I will come another time soon! Recommend checking their website for Happy Hour beer pricing on weekdays.
Don't tell too many people about this place, or the lines will get longer!

Great Thai food and really friendly staff. This place is always packed and it is worth the wait to get seated. There are a lot of repeat customers and I am one of them!! If you are a beer drinker make sure to ask for the $2 beer of the day.

The drunken noodles were awesome. They also have great vegetarian dishes. The prices are very reasonable and the service was friendly. It's a small restaurant and very casual. I will definitely go back.
