Did not know what to expect!

This place serves a great lunch meal! It gets very crowded at lunch, but the staff appeared to be energetic and eager to serve a qulity meal. My choice was great and plentiful.

We love the Mexican chains that follow the same idea at they do at Tom Yum District where you select your protein, sauce, toppings. The food at Tom Yum District was excellent, reasonably priced and a great sized portion. Now if we just had one close to where we live.

I went here for a quick dinner after arriving in town for a business trip. The food was good but nothing too special. This would definitely be a better place for lunch. Although the sauces had a Thai influence, the overall menu was lacking in Thai dishes. If you are interested in a build your own rice bowl, Chipotle-style, then... More

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.

We found this while walking back to our hotel from the Metro. 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.
