Place to enjoy your lunch in Crystal City

Have not been to this place for lunch a while so I took a friend there for lunch. To our surprise, no one spoke Thai to us. We decided to stick around anyway. Another surprise, food came very fast and we love all the dishes. The place is really nicely decorated with bright colors and not to... read more

Had pad thai...spot on! Spring rolls were pretty good. Not super kid friendly. Spicy fried rice was hot and good! Nice little spot!

Everything came fresh, crispy, and hot (temperature-wise). The Siam Beef was to die for. As were the Top Thai noodles. And they'll regulate the spices on the dishes to suit your taste.

After reading the reviews on TA, I was unsure what to expect. 3 of us enjoyed our choices for lunch. We sat outside which was nice. Thai tea was good and service was friendly/prompt. If you're looking for Thai food, I would recommend this place.

We try to dine here when we are in the DC area. Love their curries. We have been coming here since 1991. Street parking sometimes is a waiting game...but a space will become available. Always worth the time to stop for Thai food here.

This restaurant tucked into a row of restaurants in the Crystal City area is a decent place to get a Thai meal. The food is pretty good, the ambiance is pleasant and the service is solid. The prices are not too bad making it a reasonable value. We were at a conference in at the Crystal City Marriott and we... More

Good thai food at reasonsble price. Small restaurant with very simple decoration. Parking can be a challenge--check bank parking lot in front. Located near other restaurants

I ordered via phone for delivery to my hotel in Crystal City. The food arrived quickly, was hot, and the order was correct. The seafood pad thai was awesome.

Recently visited Top Thai on a cold night in Crystal City. The restaurant is small and tucked away in restaurant row on 23rd street. The decor is very basic and not very large. Initially our service was a bit slow (had to ask for more water, etc.), but it did improve as the night progressed. We ordered an appetizer and... More
