A friend and I were looking for a place to have an early dinner and this was close to her house. Her review "Hatcher08" really covered it well. The Kanom Jeeb was delicious, but the Tom Kha was good...not nearly as flavorful as I've had other places. She also had Kua Gai - VERY good - and she'll go back... More

Had a friend in town visiting - she wanted to stop here. I had not had Thai before. Penny shared the Kanom Jeeb which was delicious. I ordered the Tom Kha which my friend said was, "good although not the best she had every had". I am not an expert so I will say it was okay but I didn't... More

Attractive atmosphere, a terrific menu and warm welcoming service indicate that you're about to have a great experience. And when the meals were served, we knew this was true! My husband is gluten free, and the waitress spent a lot of time explaining what options were available, and when we found that satay had gluten we had a beef appetizer... More

I'm a foodie. I love to try new things. I loved this restaurant because it was close to my former apartment. I frequented it about once a week. The staff is always friendly and courteous. The bartender isn't the greatest but she makes a mean margarita! The food is great. I enjoy the Thai Ginger Wings. I also loved the... More

We ordered our food "Thai hot" meaning it should have been off the chart - it was "barely warm" to our palates. Virginians don't seem to get hot food - at least that is our experience. Hot needs to be very spicy and yet still flavorful. That's a skill and it's not one showed here. Thank heaven we brought Shiracha!... More

Living in the area, it is nice to walk into an establishment and have the Service Staff, Owner Etc. remember your name, what you drank the last time you visited. It is Luxury Service in a small new, clean, Thai restaurant. They cook traditional Thai....if the dish... More

S and I have been going here for 6 months, maybe more. We usually go 2-3 times a month, mostly on the weekends. We've had great experiences every time. The service is very attentive, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Drinks are generously sized, there is a good if short wine list, and an excellent loooong cocktail list. I've... More
