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.

Love sitting in the outdoor area here and eating here! The Pad Thai is my favorite, also the egg rolls. Always amazing. Make a reservation. Food comes out quick.

Very good Thai restaurant, the outdoor seating is good for dinner. Service is good, the taste is slightly deviated from the traditional Thai, it appears that its customized to suit the crowd. We ordered the KingPadPhed, PadThai, Green Curry and Fried Rice. Must try if you like Thai Food.

Stopped in for lunch today and had the chicken basil lunch special. It was ok, but it was dry and felt like it was missing something. The heat was there, but the chicken was ground down finer than I've ever seen chicken ground down to and didn't realize it was the chicken until I got started; almost to the consistency... More

The food was good, but not great. Service was decent, however, they almost forgot about us when we first checked in with maitre d'--she was no where to be found, and one of the servers told us to wait at the waiting area. We waited for over 10 minutes, and those who came in after us got seated. Finally, we... More

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.
