Diner Reviews
  • "Consistently, good food, wine, & outstanding service."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The Thai food is superb - crisp sparkling flavors, fresh and the sauces are blended beautifully. The service was helpful, friendly and attentive. It was intimate and quiet although there were a lot of people in there. Our 3 person group sat next to another group, yet we weren't talking over them, nor them us. I'm immensely glad there wasn't a TV. I'd go there again in a flash the food and ambiance was so lovely."

  • "The wait staff was so flexible and kind when we wanted to move our table at a very busy time for them. The food and atmosphere are well worth the price. Great place for a birthday dinner or mother's day meal."

  • "Food was delicious and the restaurant has good decor and nice ambiance. I was with a group from several countries (India, Israel, US) and everyone enjoyed the food. My Indian friend said his dish was very good - just the right amount of spices in his dish."

  • "The food here is excellent. There are classic Thai go-tos on the menu, and a few unique twists. Everything we tried was delicious. The restaurant was not full, but the servers seem to be a hurry. Don't come here expecting a top-notch table-side manner; do come with an appetite!"

  • "This place had a very nice feel to it and the music being played was well received. I loved the dimmed lighting and the layout of the small restaurant. This is definitely a place I would gladly recommend to friends and family. The food was amazing, I had the best steak I ever tasted and the food presentation was very nice. The service was quick and the servers were all in good spirits."

  • "Summer Summer has a fresh selection of grocery items from local growers which permeate the taste of each and every bite. The meals are very flavorful with a very appealing presentation. Even on these cold winter days the Summer Summer menu has the recipe to warm you up on the inside."

  • "Summer Summer is in the recesses of Emeryville's office district, so convenient for weekday lunch. Not flavorful for Thai food, and tables too small for dinner. Not worth a trip out of your way, so just eat here if it is nearby."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "I like Summer Summer for large groups. The service there is great. If you want "Thai spicy" they won't hold back ;) The food is otherwise good, but definitely American-Thai fusion. The cocktails are a little too sweet. It's still a lovely hip looking interior to have a drink and meet up with friends."

  • "My friends and I love to grab dinner after work here. They have a great happy hour menu. The entrees always taste fresh and have a unique thai food twist. I recommend the garlic edamame and Ponza tuna. The noodle bowls are a nice portion and can be shared."

  • "We were in a bit of a hurry since we needed to catch a movie and the delicious food arrived promptly and the wait staff was courteous and friendly. We had the crispy spring rolls and Tom Yum soup to start. The soup was very spicy just like in Thailand. We also had Thai fried rice and Pad see U. Both delicious and plentiful! Will definitely return."

  • "Small group where we ordered a variety of food and shared. Good food and service. I will certainly be back to try other items on the menu."
    Dined on 10/22/2013
  • "Altho generally a good dining experience, we were disappointed w/2 things: 1) after ordering most of our items I mentioned that we wanted some steamed veggies, in particular for our kids. Our waitress recommended something from the menu. When the dish arrived we discovered it was steamed veggie smothered in a thick peanut sauce. Not what I expected at all. One of our kids is just over 1 yr old and not eating many nuts yet. Thankfully the waitress took it back and off our bill; 2) we asked if we were still within the happy hr time zone, our waitress said "yes." My husband ordered a beer only to find that when we got our bill it was not on the happy hr list. Why didn't our waitress alert us to this after having asked about the happy hr?!"

  • "We ordered some untraditional Thai dishes and my roasted duck noodle was fantastic. Love it. My friend ordered Spicy salmon salad which was a great pick too."

  • "We love this restaurant and come here often because it has the best Thai (fusion) food in the East Bay! The place is clean -almost spiffy. The prices are reasonable and the portions more than adequate. Try it...."

  • "Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in E'ville, not so many great places within walking distance, however, the shuttle will drop you off here. Nice surprise! GREAT dumplings and curry....I will dream about them till my next trip back here, sashimi salad was really good, interesting, fresh, just the right combination. Will definitely come back here"

  • "This is my new favorite Thai restaurant in the East Bay. Dined here with my husband for a "date night" Saturday night dinner. Easy to get reservations. In fact, there weren't many tables around 6 pm on Saturday. Great, mellow decor. Cool music. Excellent bar and drink options. But the best is the variety of dishes. There have dishes I've only been able to find in Thailand, so it was like a trip home without the crazy plane ride! I know it's "fusion", but I also love that they offer Japanese dishes as well (sashimi-style items). Food was very good. The happy hour is fantastic and a great deal. Will definitely be back!"

  • "Great thai food and atmosphere. Could improve on their wine list."

  • "Really good and fun place in the heart of Emeryville...waitresses are very nice and accommodating. Great job!"
    Dined on 6/13/2013
  • "Thai-inspired, since theirs no sushi is Thailand. Still, it tastes great if you want asain-stule food. if you have a strong Thai craving, go elsewhere. Great happy hour food and drinks 5-7pm."

  • "It's hard to add something new when Summer Summer keeps up its excellence. My wife and I and a granddaughter each had a different salmon dish and they were all EXCELLENT!"
    Dined on 5/31/2013
  • "Summer Summer has been my fave Thai in the Bay Area since it opened. The Drunken Noodles are great, both vegetarian and regular versions are spot on. The meat-eaters in the group liked the Mignon and the roast pork noodles. The Roti with green curry sauce is a fun starter, as is the "Miang Kham". There's a decent selection of beers and some fun cocktails - I like the Sunburn and the tamarind one. One thing, the level of heat they bring without being asked to is a nice, pleasant heat. If you're not used to spicy, ask for mild. Of course, you can ask for spicy if you want heat."
    Dined on 5/18/2013
  • "This is one of my favorite Thai restaurants. They serve not only regular Thai dishes, but they have wonderful updated versions which I can call Thai -fusion...old thai recipes with new, modern twists that give all their dishes a wonderful look and taste. Love coming here!"
    Dined on 5/9/2013
  • "Pickings are pretty slim in Emeryville, so we were pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a restaurant. Fresh ingredients, subtle flavoring, not greasy like some Thai restaurants can be. Moderately priced and large portions. Happy hour from 5-7 daily features $5 cocktails and appetizers. Overall, we had a very good experience, and will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/5/2013
  • "We've come here several times because of the food and location. It has gotten better each time! We now rate Summer Summer the best Thai food in the East Bay area. The presentation is elegant, the flavors delectable and service is warm and friendly. (We'd had some concern about slow service during a previous visit but this time everything was excellent.)"

  • "Summer Summer is a great place to catch with a friend. It's quiet enough to actually have a conversation without having to strain to hear. The food was very flavorful and yummy. Great presentation. Loved the salmon bowl. Definitely will order that one again. The Drunken Noodle is a favorite as well."
