The return of Nud Pob

Nud Pob apparently has a new location on Comm Ave (Where a travel agency used to be) and there has been a sign in the window for the last 6 months or so claiming that it is "coming soon." Does anyone know when it will actually reopen? As a poor, hungry BU student, this of great interest to me!

  1. Haha this belongs in the "why does Thai food in Boston suck so hard" thread.

    1. The "coming soon" sign is still up, isn't it? Any updates on this place?

        Progress seems to be painfully slow, but there IS progress - Barmy and I noticed just last night that a new illuminated shop sign for Nud Pob has been installed. The windows are still covered with the same old brown paper that's been there for months on end...

      2. Nud Pob is what it is: a place for satisfyingly greasy, Americanized Thai takeout. The "crispy chicken pad thai" is the most hilariously inauthentic thing ever, but after a couple of pitchers at the Dugout it really hits the spot.

        BU is better with NP than without it.

          LOL, after a couple of pitchers of beer at The Dugout, any food hits the spot! :-D

            Ironically, not any of the food they actually SERVE at the dugout,.

            i haven't eaten at nud pob but their sister restaurant (pad thai cafe) has pretty good thai food if you order off the thai language menu or the specials board

          3. Looks like some have been confused on the name in the past:

                This very exciting, especially since that is also my birthday! Excellent present.

                  We're talking about Nud Pob, right? I mean, Brown Sugar Cafe is like three blocks away.

                    Reread the original post. "poor", "hungry" and "student" are all key words. All I want is good, greasy CHEAP and FAST thai food. Brown Sugar is a little classier than my needs require.
