A pleasant Experience

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.

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.

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

One of the best Thai restaurants we have been to in all of our travels. The satay and noodle dishes are excellent as is the Pad Thai. We always try to have at least one meal here on our visits.

This place has always been on our short list of favorite Thai restaurants, and is well liked by all members of our family. I love their Drunken Noodles and winter squash pot stickers! We went last Sunday afternoon and were surprised by the poor service, when everything is usually very serene and unobtrusive. First of all, the waitress served my... More

Coming home from Richmond hitting NOVA/DC about noon. A mandatory stop for excellent Thai. I really like this place. The food is well seasoned and very tasty. Service is very attentive and the servers very nice. Very pleasing atmosphere. Prices reasonable. What more do you need?
