It wasn't anything impressive for a first time person trying Thai food. Noodles were extremely oddly cooked. I personally would not go there again, service was ok.

Sushi was sub par specially for the price. Our server sat around on her phone instead of checking on us.

Went in for a dinner with my niece. We arrived around 9.15, and seated promptly as we were the only guests. May be late for dinner. The food we ordered were just ok, will I go again. No

I don't get much chance to eat Thai food, but I thought this place was quite good. Had a chicken dish (forgot what it was called) with three sauces. It was quite hot, but very flavorful. Good margaritas too. Under $50 for two. Worth a revisit.

We ate here during a recent trip to DC. The food was great and they had very reasonable happy hour prices. We recommend this place, especially during happy hour.

Great Pineapple fried rice and beef noodles. The pineapples were not good but everything else was delicious i finished my plate. Of course there was only 2 pieces of shrimp to 15 pieces of chicken.

Just what we were looking for: hot, fresh fast authentic Thai food. Nice service and atmosphere. It was quite busy. Interesting area too.

This was one of the most disgusting, non-edible sushi I have ever been served. Old, smelly fish, incorrectly cut, the texture of a rubber. Amazed that they have the audacity to serve such food- it should have been thrown away a week ago. I don;t believe the chef had prepared sushi before- what a shame....Restaurant/ Interior is not more appealing... More

Very pleased that we happened upon this restaurant in the DuPont Circle area. The sushi was fresh, the rolls flavourful and the service was prompt. For a quick bite or multi course meal, this is a reasonably priced place to try.

Great food! I was super surprised with how awesome their Chicken Satay was and the peanut sauce was also very tasty! Sushi was also very good. Looking forward to going back
