This is a restaurant that I drive back and forth in front of for years, but when my friend suggested this Thai restaurant, since it was the busy Valentine weekend and she said this was a regular spot of hers. The family run Thai restaurant is now one of my very favorite places based upon the hospitality of the owners... More

We have been going here quite often for the past 2 years now. We have been to other Thai restaurants but so far, this one never disappoints. Owners are really from Thailand - this is a family business (Mom & Pop type) that has been in Fairfax for more than 9 years. The owners are very friendly. During the summer... More

The atmosphere is delightful. As the name implies, it feels like sitting in your family's living room. Lunch special are a good value and food is consistently yummy!

Went Christmas Eve with family (5 adults). Cozy restaurant in the heart of Fairfax. Shared 3 appetizers among 5. Appetizers were very good and were typical for a Thai restaurant. Had Thai beer, was ok but not my favorite. They offered dinner specials which were excellent - large portions. Service was excellent, staff was friendly. I would definitely go again.

This restaurant in a little old building in a historic section of Fairfax City has personality! The food and service were very nice, and the prices good. It's wintertime so no outdoor seating of course; but a lovely big area of thai pepper bushes in the courtyard. We'll be back!

One of the very top best Thai places in DMV area, hands down, Love this place for all seasons year-round visit with a genuine authentic Thai food, in the sense of freshness, succulent, organic terms. Not to miss Pad Thai Talay, Beef Masaman curry and Thai green Papaya Salad here are really to die for!!! also huge menu varieties, including... More
