Authentic

Small but authentic restaurant. The staff was pleasant although on the shy side. The menu was varied and the price was just.

My wife and I ate here in late June. The atmosphere was so-so. We ate inside, which was pretty empty. The food and service was average.

My wife and I really appreciate good Thai food. Some restaurants disappoint with mediocre Thai (have been told that some owners foolishly think that Americans want Americanized (bland) Thai). Top Thai did not disappoint. Our two young kids loved the Satay and wife and I really enjoyed the green and massamun curries. The staff was nice and got the requested... 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!

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 overwhelm with "Thai"... More

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
