Had dinner here before a movie at Worldgate. Pad See Ew and Chicken Friend Rice. Very good and tasty and convenient. The problem is, where Tara Thai's chain of restaurants dominated Thai food in NoVa for a long time, there is just so much competition now that it's hard for a Thai restaurant to stand out. So while the food... More

I ordered a dish, and it tasted like cat food, I left most of it on the plate. I am not sure why this place has a high rating, we will not return to this restaurant

I enjoyed a wonderful honey glazed duck tonight with jasmine rice, cabbage, carrots and fresh shaved ginger with sweet soy sauce. The duck was exceptionally tender. The servers were very good and accommodated my requests. Nice layers of flavor! 4⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ well done!

Bones and a skull at decoration. Is it already helloween? No. Is this a sign for the taste of the food? Luckily not. I had an excellent curry with seafood and crab, followed by my favorite Thai desert sticky rice with mango. It reminds me to my Bangkok visit. Nice good, friendly people, but i don't understand the decoration. One... More

This Thai restaurant did not measure up to many others that I have been to. The som tom salad was smaller portioned than I was used to and did not measure up in value. It was delicious which is good, but my friend and I were sharing and I expected more for the price. We then chose a red curry... More

Great food always and great service. We keep going back. All the dishes we love. When my kids come home from college they always want to go here.

Was staying at a near by hotel and wanted to try something new. Purchased the seafood lover meal and could not believe how much food you receive. Food was excellent, wish they had an establishment in Penna.

Staying in a nearby hotel and took a walk. I was intrigued by the "look" of the restaurant and decided to give it a try - turned out to be an excellent decision. Spring rolls were crisp and flavorful and the Kapow was excellent, but quite spicy. Reasonable prices and a modest selection of craft beers too! A winner and... More

Yum! What a delightful find! I came here with a friend today, and we were both pleased with our meals. I got Pad See Ew, and even the lunch portion was almost more than I could handle! Service was awesome. I'll come back.
