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

Located among a cluster of restaurants in Crystal City on 23rd Ave, the service friendly, the food was ok, will do if you're in the area and want Thai food.

I struggle with Thai food; it always looks so good, but somehow never delivers (tomato and pineapple is not a favourite mix of mine - sorry!). On this occasion however, the food was OK, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere pleasant.

There are many Thai restaurants in the area, but this is the one with real home cooking and interesting flavors; we go there frequently and it is consistently good. It is an unpretentious place but it offers good value and pleasant service.

I took my parents here when they were in town and they loved it. The restaurant is cutely decorated and makes you feel like you're eating in someone's house. We ordered the popular Thai dishes including Papaya Salad, Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, Panang Curry and a type of Fried Rice. The portion sizes were decent and the dishes had... More

One of those places on a busy restaurant strip. We were pursuing menus along the street and finally picked Top Thai. Not the best Thai ever but certainly good. We shared a bowl of coconut soup with chicken and mushrooms. It had that sweet and sour type taste and was actually pretty good. We told the waitress we were going... More

I have tasted much better Thai food than what they served me here. I thought it to be marginal. But the service was good.

The pad Thai beef tasted horrible. The Sautee chicken appetizer was bland. The peanut butter sauce tasted like it came out of a jar of American peanut butter. The food took forever to come to our table. One dish was served cold. It was a total waste of time and money. I couldn't wait to brush my teeth afterwards to... More
