    There is never any one in there and none of my friends ever go there. That should have been reason enough not to go but I went anyway. The food is sub par at best. We had apps and drinks and left to have dinner elsewhere. The pork buns r more like soft tacos - not the type you get as traditional dim sum. The spring rolls with shrimp had so little shrimp it was mostly a veggie roll. The Mai Tais however r amazing. I won't repeat unless it's for cocktails and edamame at happy hour.

    The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was very laid back and had a good vibe. This place is closer to the quieter end of Clematis but once you find it you will want to come back! I haven't been able to go to the happy hour because I am pregnant but I've heard great things about it. Definitely try the duck taquitos! They are delicious!

    Hubby & I were celebrating my birthday & Valentine's Day. The food was great, fresh, beautiful & creative plate-ups. A very relaxed & casual environment. Priced just right as we enjoyed 2 thai iced teas 2 appetizers 2 cocktails 2 entrees 1 dessert for under $100. You also get a free cup cake for your b-day! 1st -ducks buns & steamed pork dumplings. Both very fresh in presentation & flavor. 2nd -crispy duck ramen noodles & chicken pad thai. The ramen was excellent. Boneless duck, well cooked baby bok choy & the fried wontons were light & airy. The chicken pad thai had an unusual flavor that we didn't care for. The desserts were great. The coconut cupcake was good but paled in comparison to the thai tea cheese cake with cookie crust.

    Real Gem on Clematis Street. Bet I walked by this place 30 times before I stopped in for dinner. I was so glad I did. Food was amazing. Service was terrific. I made another reservation for the following week just to try more of the great food and drinks. Don't forget to eat the Lava cake and green tea ice cream for desert. Yummy!

    Had chicken curry, eggplant with beef, and seafood hot pot, all very good. We like Thai food and this was a good representation. Portions were large, I took some home and don't usually have that option and it was great the next day. All in all a good place, want to try it again before I get to excited. Palm beer was excellent!

    Four of us tried Palm Sugar for a taste of Thai in West Palm Beach. A very nice evening, great service and delicious food. We ordered a smattering of appetizers to share, which were the best part of the meal. Interesting combinations, very fresh food and decent portion sizes for sharing. Apps were slightly better than the entrees, which were also good. I will definitely go back for a good-tasting and well-priced Thai experience.

    The restaurant was empty and our waitress was so inattentive that we had to get up out of our seats several times to get her attention ...to come over and take our order, to tell her one out of the four entrees was overcooked, and to get our bill. The saki margaritas were very good and the idea of the various cupcake and mini cupcake desserts was very cute and tasty. Too bad the service was so horrible!

    I am a huge red curry fan and it was excellent. I asked if they had sticky rice with mango desert, which was not on the menu, and they made it for me. It was so delightful. Thye put it in a martini glass with a sorbet/ice cream...looked like sorbet but tasted as good as ice cream....so good! My cousin ordered the pork buns app and mussels. Bother were excellent. Five rating because the meal could not have been better. Also the pinapple sake is awesome.

    The menu at Palm Sugar is different and original. Dishes such as flash fried bok choy with bacon is a good example. From the tangy salad dressings to the pungent sauces, my eating experience was a delight. The staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was pleasant. If the whole fish was fief a little crispier, it would have been perfect.3

    Asian street food is how I've heard this reviewed, and I would agree. The hot Asian bun (pork) was amazing. The sake mixed drinks also went down easy. A fun little place with cute decorating. My coconut curry chicken was good, but nothing out of this world. A nice place to try something new, but with all the places to eat in West Palm Beach, I am not sure I'll be back too soon.
