Very attractive restaurant with extensive menu, but very few healthy options for vegetarians and pescetarians. Most of the appetizers were fried. Nonetheless, my guest and I both found items that we wanted and liked. Most annoying was a $2.00 per person upcharge for substituting white rice for brown rice, even though we both ordered entrees. This seems excessive.

Whenever I order Thai food I always get the fresh vegetarian spring rolls and fresh tofu in my curry. This restaurant had neither, so my spring rolls were fried, as well as the tofu. Of course fried food is delicious, just know that you can't get a healthier option here. The price was high but that's the norm for the... More

Great experience! I had never tried Thai food before and boy I was NOT disappointed! I had the Drunken Noodles with chicken for lunch and it was great, a little spicy but thats what I like! The service was great and I enjoyed the visit. If back in the area I would go back to this restaurant again and would... More

Pro: 1. My lunch service was excellent. Seated quickly, a server came by withing minutes, my water glass was filled several times, by bill arrived quickly when I was done. That's what you need for lunch. 2. My Pad-Ga-Pow with chicken was delicious, and I didn't lick up all the sauce only out of fear of getting something on my... More

I have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed the food. Here on business I took a group of my friends to this for good Thai food. It was lunch time, yet the place did not have a lot of other patrons. Our party of 5 sat and a short time later the waitress took our drink order. It took... More

Located in a nice setting near 2100-2200 Clarendon Blvd, this restaurant impressed me with the attentive and courteous servers, the presentation and taste of the food, and the reasonable prices. I particularly enjoyed the Lamb curry with saffron rice. Did not try any of the desserts. I think the sauces that came with the appetizers were a little on the... More

Let me say from the beginning that I used to live in Thailand so I'm a bit particular about what Thai food should taste like. But this is Arlington and not Bangkok....so on to the review. The food was pretty good. The mango chicken was *very* good as well as the pudding and rice for dessert. Portions are big so... More

Had lunch there during a business meeting nearby. I ordered the duck entree, I think it is #16. Everything was quite good,veggies were not overcooked and nicely seasoned. Except the meat which was fried and just dry. What a waste of a nice piece of duck! Quantity was good. Service was very attentive. It was nicely airconditioned, not to hot... More
