My family of four's first Thai food ever....Not a fancy place, but good food. All in my family ordered separate items. Everyone was pleased. Reasonably priced and varied menu. Would definitely go again.

We were directed by the staff of the Washington Plaza Hotel to Thai Tanic after a 15 hour drive from Orlando. A short walk from the hotel, we were extremely impressed. Service was fast, efficient and friendly and the food was amazing. We had soup #20 and #21 (sorry can't remember the names) and both had Pad Thai. Everything was... More

I have been there many times, and I go back for a reason. The food is always excellent. Frequently ladyboys are the staff so it feels like home. Not as warm weather as in BKK but the next best thing in DC.

We love going to this place. We have been going for years. The kitchen is reliable, the spicing good. Unfortunately it is being overshadowed by the yuppie places growing up around it. Too bad because it is a real find.

Our first meal in DC and we weren't disappointed. The curry's were fragrant and plentiful. Service good with a limited wine list. It would be nice if they turned the lights up a bit so you could actually read the menu. Getting really tired of restaurants being so dimly lit that you can't read the menu without your iphone torch!

I'm on a quest to find the single best Tom Kha Gai soup in DC, and eventually the world. Thai Tanic did a great job with theirs. I slurped it down heartily. They kindly agreed to give me two bowls in one (I got one chicken and one vegetable--had to pay for two of course) accompanied by a serving of... More

I had to try this place because of the name.. And the food was great. I only had a pad thai and some chicken fried rice (pretty standard) but found it to be very tasty. I can't comment on the rest of the menu. But the staff were also very friendly. I'd definitely come.

We decided to go for some asian when being in DC, and tried out this place. Got a nice window table and the server was attentive and effective. The food was ok, but came so quick that I suspect that it might me pre-made. Also the fact that the rice had a quite "hard" surface, indicated recent re-heating. Some of... More
