I have never had such fresh calamari! The rings were thick and coated in the lightest panko breading. I thought they'd be tough, but they were light, tender, and delicious and served with a sweet chile sauce. My entre was the pad kee mao. Again, fresh noodles, vegetables, and light application of sauce. The only thing I can ding them... More

I was staying at the nearby Doubletree and stopped here for some takeout. Do note: the menu on their website is not complete. However, the red curry duck I got was tasty and well priced and was cooked fast. My only complaint was they didn't give me a fork with my takeout.

Always a bit dubious with Thai restaurants as being a vegetarian I don't want fish sauce in my meals. I asked about this and they said no fish sauce in the veggie meals, in which case there is a very good range of veggie dishes. I chose Panang Tofu, which, slightly confusingly, in the menu is stated to be both... More

I really enjoyed the food here and it was pretty authentic Thai! Will go back. Service was good. Didn't love the look of the restaurant.

If you're looking for a quick and easy bite to eat this is for you. Nothing fancy at all, so I would not recommend for a fancy date. The food is good and the staff are all very pleasant, service was fast. Drunken noodles were tasty but not very spicy and the tofu and veggies was on the small portion... More

The papaya salad is one of the best things on the menu, although the shrimp was left out of a carry out order. Accuracy is better when you dine in. The staff is friendly and live music is available on weekends.

This is a solid Thai place, pretty much standard stuff. Hard to assess Thai places in one visit. There were three of us and we all had satisfactory meals. I had a noodle dish and it was very good. I also had soup there and it was excellent, so overall, a satisfactory experience but not what I would call extraordinary.... More

This is a good place to eat with the family when you are in Bethesda. Parking is always a challenge in this area but its worth the effort. The service was good and the food was pretty good value for what we got. The chicken lettuce wraps were particularly good. The atmosphere is nothing special but I would recommend this... More

I called and after 30 secs of conversation was told to hold, I asked why, and with a nasty attitude the receptionist said she had to take an order from the walk in customer. In the middle of my first word i was put on hold, once she returned on the phone she took my order as if i was... More

Working in downtown Bethesda can be pricey, parking can be a bit complicated, but one of the advantages is the variety of restaurants you can easily walk to. You can find good food at very reasonable prices, so you think that Restaurant owners would keep this on mind and perhaps they do, except the owner of this particular place. My... More
