“Unique Little Thai Place in Foggy Bottom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This sweet little restaurant has three dining spaces: a main floor with about ten tables and some large-screen TVs under the high ceilings; an upper level that is a bit darker and quieter, and an outdoor patio that is superb for viewing the foot traffic between Foggy Bottom and Georgetown.

The service is very friendly and immediate, and the food is authentic Thai with the freshest ingredients. It is presented beautifully on white china, and there is a full bar in addition to the usual Thai iced tea and hot tea offerings.

I eat here often when in DC, and I have yet to be disappointed. If you like Thai food, you can't go wrong with this very nice place.

“Very good thai restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Went there last week with my friend. They didn't have everything on the menu (no deep fried softshell crabs) but other than that food was great.

“Good Thai, next door to our hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was very convenient to our hotel (Avenue Suites). I would say good Thai, unpretentious, didn't over or underwhelm me. Decent prices.
