The food is good and arrived quickly. But the adult beverage selection needs improving. The staff is very friendly.

Stopped here for a quick dinner while in town. Nice, little restaurant with a large menu. I had the dried beef and spicy papaya salad. My colleague had the panang curry. Both were very good, if not exceptional. Service was prompt and very attentive. Ambiance was relaxing. I've eaten at lots of Thai places all over the country and in... More

We had the wonton noodle, Frankenstein noodle rice noodle and Tom ka soup. All 3 dishes were full of lemongrass and cilantro flavour. Service was very good and server helped with directions around Alexandria. I would go again Prices are good

I've tried it several times, keep hoping it will get better, it doesn't. The food just isn't good and the place is dirty. I prefer the Thai restaurants down on King Street. The food here does not seem fresh and the flavorings and spices just aren't good in my opinion. Some people love this place and think it's great, so... More

we came in just before closing time at 9:30, the friendly waitress made sure we could order despite the kitchen were about to close down. In short, the food was tasty (except for chicken satay skewers which were rather uninspired) but had little to do with true Thai food. Despite this we will probably be back

This Thai and sushi restaurant is where the locals eat...for good reason. It boasts an extensive menu of tasty dishes and radiates the feel of a family enterprise dedicated to serving good food to its customers. Our group of three had dishes ranging from noodles to vegetarian, and each one was truly superb. The food is exactly what one would... More

Another good Thai restaurant in Old Town Alexandria! They moved around the corner to more spacious surroundings in a much improved space. The food continues to be very good with a full menu of Thai dishes that are tasty and promptly served. The new addition is a full sushi bar with a full set of choices that are pretty good.... More

We order take-out from here all the time but today is the first time I actually had the opportunity to dine in at the new location. Sadly, I wish I had stuck to our to go ordering. The food was good and the outdoor patio was pleasant but the service was terrible. 1) I requested ice water with lime. When... More

I usually do carry out, however, had some extra time today so thought I dine in at the new location. I'm glad I wasn't in a rush because the service was extremely slow. The food was good. I ask the server Ead (she) for my check. I looked over my bill when I realized that she added the tip on... More

Pleasant welcome and outstanding menu at a fair price. Definite repeat. A bit cramped, but an excellent lunchtime experience
