Citysearch Editorial Profile -- By Eric Grossman
A young, diverse Cambridge crowd heads to Porter Square for exceptionally varied Thai cuisine served in futuristic environs. Editorial Rating: Recommended

The Scene
Exceptionally stylish for a Thai restaurant, Sugar & Spice caters to the bookish couples and graduate students who call Porter Square home. With curved, multi-colored walls, eye-catching lighting fixtures and an eclectic, international soundtrack, the dining area offers a modernist setting in which to enjoy a sprawling menu of Thai treats. Quiet, black-clad servers keep busy delivering extra dishes of tangy sweet-and-sour sauce or refilling water glasses.

The Food
The laminated, double-sided menu provides lovers of Thai cuisine with several tough choices. Classic items, including soft summer rolls (boiled shrimp and steamed tofu peeking through a clear rice wrap) and coconut-heavy curries, share tabletops with modern dishes like spicy steamed cod (disciplined palates notice a hint of lime) and a piquant jumble of fresh vegetables and chicken served in a crisp wonton shell (aka "Excited Chicken"). Quality is high across the board, and portions are rather generous.

Insider Tips
Save Money
Stop in for one of the bargain lunch specials (large plates of chicken curry cost under $6), served daily from 11am to 3pm.
Unless there's a spot right out front on Massachusetts Avenue, park in the neighboring strip mall's lot.
