I've eaten here at least 10 times. It's by far the best place I've been in the Alexandria/Arlington area. High quality, healthy (most things on the menue) and reasonable pricing.

The atmosphere of the place is pretty cool lots of wooden carvings but you don't go to a restaurant to look at wood. We were seated right away and there were seven of us. The waiter was attentive and their staff was pleasant. The menu had a lot of items that looked delicious and we opted for a few tapas,... More

This restaurant was a surprise. It's in a small mall next to a large AMC theater, surrounded by American restaurants like Ruby Tuesday. It's location offers something more interesting to eat then ribs and salad bars. There is a wonderful combination of soups with fish dishes, great noodle and rice dishes. Try the duck with spicy chili. Or the squid... More

My husband and I went here because I was craving a good Phat Thai Chicken dish.... This was ok but really nothing special. I've gotten better, cheaper, elsewhere. I did enjoy the sauce that came with the spring rolls, but on our next trip to the area, we will pass.

The decor and service are pretty decent here, but that's where it stops. My husband and I ordered the spring rolls and some type of fried shrimp appetizers which were good, but not anything spectacular. Our entrees were Cashew Shrimp (me) and Chicken Pad Thai (him). My husband enjoyed his meal, but I hated mine. I've never known Cashew anything... More

Brilliant restaurant with really good food and decent portion sizes. The crispy duck is first class and the Panang delicious. Definitely one to go to.

The food was wonderful! I liked the fact that, while the meal wasn't rushed, it was hot when it was served. As far as atmosphere's go, it was a lovely, cozy place with great service.

Great food and drinks. Right across from our hotel. Try the drunken noodles. Drinks were also excellent. Nice atmosphere. $100 for a family of 4.
