Wonderful corner resturant right at the bottom of the hill in Olde Towne Alexandria, right in the heart of it all. Great wait staff, and fantastic food at a moderate price. Well worth the visit if you are in the area.

This is Thailand's version of the Soup Nazi. I walked up to the front door where the waiter/bartender was holding the door open to look at something across the parking lot, and he abruptly turned around and let the door close as I was reaching...More

My family really enjoys the fresh, delicious Thai food from To Be Thai. The owner and his wife work hard to provide a great meal at a reasonable cost. The Pad Kana chicken and Pad Thai noodle dishes are fantastic. Another convenient option is their...More
