We visited this restaurant and it was a. I e setting. The service was good from the bald head guy. He recommended good dishes but I found the price was high for the quantity. I ordered the crispy duck and the taste was good but I felt like I was eating crispy airy duck flavored something. It was airy and... More

I went here with a work colleague for lunch recently. We choose this place based on positive TripAdvisor reviews. We both had a lunch special that included shrimp. It was okay, but definitely not what we were expecting. It was very reasonably priced and the service was great. I'd be willing to give it a second try based on everyone... More

Maybe the kitchen has had a change but it wasn't what we're used to getting here. All three dishes seemed smaller and skimpier on the high end ingredients. Hopefully that was a one time blip and things return to past experience and expectations.

This restaurant is near my hotel and I wanted to get takeout, expecting it to only be ok. But I was pleasantly surprised and the flavors were very good. I had the basil sauce with tofu, the scallion dumplings and mango sticky rice. I wasn't going to get the rice, but she mentioned it and I caved. The portion was... More

Pad Thai Restaurant in Fairfax, VA was our next stop in quest for the “best” Thai restaurant. This restaurant has been voted “best of Fairfax” by Washingtonian magazine. We arrived during lunch on Friday and took advantage of their lunch menu which included an appetizer (chef’s choice) and entrée. The serving size was adequate but tended to be on the... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time with three friends. We all had soup and Pad Thai noodles. I had a fish entre and one of my friends had chicken with veggies. All the dishes were very well prepared and the portions were more than adequate. We each had a doggie bag after dinner. For dessert we had mango and... More

Decent, but not great. I'm not sure why Thai places have a hard time making it in our neck of the woods, but we've seen several come and go over the years. These guys do a nice job (nice, not great), but I've found the portions a bit small, prices a bit high and the food not consistent. We end... More

I am not a big fan of Thai food but I accepted what my associates recommended. The service was impecable. They have a nice variety of rhums. I ordered the managers favorite. I discovered that the managered has chaged! Any how, it tasted better than it looked. Go for other option. Ice cream was amazing.

I've been to several Thai places around DC and nothing compares to pad Thai. Small and unassuming, you come here for the food. Service and ambience are fine for a small restaurant. I've been here several times and will be back. Highly recommend any noodle or curry dish, but my favorite is the drunken noodles with duck--delicious.

Thank KevinND
