Nice outdoor seating and friendly service. Since I come from a Thai family I am always critical of the Thai food we get at restaurants. No complaints here....felt like home cooking!! If you're in the area it's a must :)

Very nice outdoor seating, great personal service but the food is the star. Very authentic and delicious. Large menu and a nice vine list.

Went here for lunch after attending a meeting at the courthouse and I am so glad that I did. I had the Pad Thai lunch special, which came with Tom Yum Goong soup. Both were delicious. The soup was a perfect blend of sweet, salty, and spicy. It was fantastic. The Pad Thai was very good. It had very large... More

We love Courtside Thai and go as often as we possibly can. The owners are wonderful people and the food is the cleanest and most flavorful of any restaurant around. Their food is prepared with attention to detail and is not oily at all (some Thai restaurants can be). They are also very dog friendly and dogs are not only... More

Enjoy the food at Courtside Thai very much. The service is great. They were very attentive, and very friendly. The owner seemed to remember me from having lunch there a few weeks earlier. The food is very good. The only complaint I would have is we went on a very cold night and were seated next to a window. It... More

This is our go-to Thai restaurant and one of the few places where I would consider myself a "regular". The owners are wonderful and the food is always great. Great place for sitting outside when the weather is good, but getting a table outside can be tricky since it's very popular.

This was, hands down, the best Thai food I've ever had, and I love Thai food. My boyfriend and I were passing through Fairfax on our way back to PA and after dropping our stuff off at a fabulous local B&B, we headed over to Courtside. I was a little hesitant because of some of the reviews about the "bad... More

The Thai food here is wonderful. My recommendation? Come at lunch time! They have a very reasonable lunch menu: $6.95 for only an entree on the list, or $8.95 if you want to include wontons, a soup, and a drink. My girlfriend and I went with the $8.95 deal. The food was excellent. Honestly simple as that. The pad thai... More

My husband and I had been hankering for some good Thai food. After we had heard rave reviews about Courtside, we thought we would check it out. While we were there, a few major problems arose: - They were completely understaffed, with probably 4 people total serving - including the cook, who dropped off our meal. - Our waiter confused...
