Someone had recommended this restaurant in El Sobrante Plaza serving great Thai /Vietnamese food which are my two favorites. I visited there with my family on a Friday evening came to find out there was a Dixieland Jazz band playing every Friday night from 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.peforming on stage with a open dance. My family loved the place, the music was very entertaining and the food was delicious. On top of it all, the service was excellent and a very friendly place suitable for all ages. I would totally recommend Champa Restaurant to anyone that is looking for live entertainments serving great Thai/ Vietnamese food in a friendly place to eat.
I recently went back to Champ for the second time. After having the Vietnamese Soup (Pho) the first time I decided to try another soup. I had the chicken noodle soup and was equally impressed. In fact my father and I ordered two bowls of soup to split and my wife ordered the same vermacelli and Prawns that she had the first time. The environment is very family and kid friendly, which is key, we have 4 children and the family run staff and kitchen have made us regulars. Even my father in law, who is a definite foodie, couldn't stop talking about teh pho the next day and I ma pretty sure he snuck back there a few days later.
My wife and I have had dinner at Champa many times over the past two years. We both agree that the food is excellent and the service is friendly and very food. We have not had anything (either Thai or Vietnamese versions) that we have not enjoyed. We like that you are asked about the level of spiciness of your ordered dishes. For those who are adventurous and enjoy a good burn the Lao style green papaya salad is amazing. El Sab Man
