First visit to this place and I eat Thai regularly. I had the chicken chili basil and it was excellent. Only white rice no brown rice which is usual for the traditional places. The decor is nothing impressive so it's not a date night for anyone over 25 but the food looks solid. I saw some complaints on portion size... More

For years Pilin at Tysons Corner and Pilin in Falls Church have been our favorite Thai restaurant. The Pad Thai, Chicken Fried Rice, Tom Kha Gai, Curries, Pad Phrik Khing, Pad Khing and Sticky Rice with Mango are some of the dishes we prefer here over any other Thai restaurant. Service at the restaurants is very friendly. The interior of... More

When I came on TripAdvisor to find this restaurant I was blown away that there were positive reviews! I had the Chef Specialty Chicken Basil Chicken and my wife had the sweet and sour chicken. Both of ours were fried chicken nuggets in sauce (OVER fried nuggets) My wife's chicken was dredged in duck sauce with canned pineapples. After being... More

Oldest Thai restaurant in Tysons Corner. The menu has not been changed quite a while. If you are in the middle of shopping and got hungry, I strongly recommend. The ambiance is not as good as the other similar restaurants, but friendly service will make you happy. Limited outdoor dining if the weather permits.

We were visiting my parents and they suggested that we eat here because it was their favorite Thai place. We had the chicken satay and dumplings for appetizers. For the main course, we split the Pad Thai, the Shrimp Pad Thai and the crispy basil chicken. We all enjoyed the food, it was very good and they spiced it to... More

This is another place I’ve patronized regularly for close to two decades. And for good reason. Thai Pilin on Rte 7 in Tyson’s Corner, crammed into a large strip mall, serves up some of the best Thai cuisine I’ve had outside of Bangkok. Atmosphere is minimalist. Walk in, wait in line (and some days at lunchtime, the line stretches out... More

Consistently good Thai food at a reasonable price. My wife loves their Pad Thai (spiced just right) and I've yet to be disappointed when I sample various items on the menu. Not much for atmosphere. It's in a strip mall with about ten tables. While I hear it's usually full with the business crowd during the week, we had no... More

We ordered take out and were very disappointed with the portion sizes. I ordered chicken cashew and received very little chicken and a very large portion of rice. I am not a huge eater either. The overall quality of the food was average at best.

I've been coming here for years and they still make the great dishes. The uninspired decor and strip-mall setting may keep some from trying it but it is really worth it when you do.

This little restaurant has been serving the locals for the past 20+ years. And I for one has been a faithful cusyomer since the early years. Small, narrow family owned and run restaurant in a typical strip mall hidden in the heart of Tysons Corner. Since the past 20 or so years, many other Thai restaurants have spranp up in... More
