Delicious Thai

ON vacation with my family. We ordered the chicken pot stickers, Pad Thai for the kids and shared a Thai green curry rice dish with my wife with a pot of hot tea. The meal was delicious and would come back, if in the area again. The Shops of Shirlington are also nice to see as well.

Reasonably priced local restaurant that daughter really enjoys. Excellent service and our meals were served quickly. Recommend the chicken satay with an excellent peanut sauce. The presentation of the food was great and our server extremely attentive.

Visited this restaurant at about 9 pm on a Friday night. The weather was comfortably cool and almost all the diners had opted for the outdoor tables to enjoy the mild evening. I had pad thai and my companion had beef with ginger. My friend enjoyed her dish, but the pad thai was just average and bland. It was a... More

The ambiance is nice and the service was good. We ordered panang curry, green curry, and pad Thai. It was all just average and didn't have the zing of fresh ingredients.

As one strolls down the main drag in Shirlington they can find a multitude of different eateries all within a 2 block area. We decided to try the THAI. It was a good choice. The service was excellent and the meal was very good. I found it to be surprisingly reasonable for that area.

First, the service was excellent. Second, the aroma in the restaurant was amazing (of course I was quite hungry). Third, the food was excellent! I was also very impressed by the fact that there were gluten-free options and vegetarian options available that the hostess and waiter were very familiar with and able to discuss. Definitely plan to return.

Sawadee Cup - We went to the "Thai in Shirlington" for lunch. It was a busy day, but a table for nine was quickly prepared for us and we were seated. Lunch was ordered, served, and separeate checks prepared for us. Good food.

Tried this for the first time. Major impression was "meh". Food was okay, but not great. I had Pad Thai and spouse had Basil Chicken. Both were on the dry side and needed more sauce. Service was okay, but not great. I've had worse, but I've had lots better. Overall it was okay, but I doubt we will be back.... More

Nice ambience, good food, nothing to shake the world, but if you're in the area and want some ethnic cuisine, this is a good option.

THAI is a very good restaurant but there are better Thai offerings in the Washington area. It is a little pricey for the area, but in line with all the other restaurants. I had pork which was delicious and tender - served with green papaya salad (yummy) and sticky rice. My friend had pad thai which was OK, but nothing... More
