Close to Holiday Inn at Rosslyn

We came here after a long day. The staff was nice and courteous. We had the Brown Jasmine Rice with chicken bowl. It was topped with fresh vegetables, panang curry sauce and peanuts. Delicious!!! The bowl was more than we could eat. It was a good value for the money. Try it. You will see.

We took out family here for dinner. The make your own rice and noodle style dishes were perfect for fussy eaters as you could choose sauce meet and vegetables. Modern clean decor with plenty of seating, we had no troubles fitting 2 strollers inside.

right on Wilson blvd in Arlington neighborhood of Rosslyn. It looks like fast food and does a big business in take out, but eating in is a good option too. The design of the restaurant is eclectic asian which matches the fushion experience of the dishes. you build your own dish choosing a base of rice or pad thai, then... More

Definitely similar to chipotle, but Thai style! The proteins were cooked well, topping choices great, and the sauces are delicious! My 10 year old wasn't too sure about it, but ate every bite! The service was great- they were very friendly and excited to hear they had great reviews on TA. A great restaurant!

Food was good.. although small bowl (not a great value). The lady who took our order was not friendly and was impatient as we were trying to figure out what base and protein to order.. it was 7:30pm on Saturday night with no line.. so we were definitely not holding the line up.

It is simple, quick and not expensive. like the other reviews state, you build your own Thai bowl-full with the ingredients you pick (noodles, vs rice -white or wheat - or salad), protein (tofu, chicken, steak), veggies, salad toppings, sauce (labelled by spicy-ness and flavor), sprinkles.

good for a quick lunch, basically a thai chipotle. The people behind the counter are nice and the food quite edible.

Very tasty food. Just choose from the options and put your meal together (Jasmine rice or pad Thai etc). Nice lemongrass ginger sauce. Nice place, modern and friendly. Fast to get the food ready.

The method is exactly like Chipotle except you are choosing Asian inspired components. It's nice and quick if there is no line but like Chipotle long lines do form. The food was fine for "fast".
