“Nice little place in Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Menu was decent, prices were just right, and food was excellent. The veggies in the drunken noodles were very fresh and tasty. Just the right amount of spice. Quiet and small location on King Street, would be a great date place. Nice decor and ambiance.

“The Garlic Lover is Awesome”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Picked this restaurant based on viewing their menu. I got the Ginger Perfect and my friend got the Garlic Lover. The Ginger Perfect was just okay. However, the Garlic Lover was excellent. It had strong garlic flavor but was not overpowering to eat. The chicken still came through. The serving size of the garlic dish was twice as large as the ginger dish, providing us with dinner the next night. The service was okay. However, when we asked the waiter what rhyzomes were (it's garlic root), he did not know. Instead he went back to the kitchen and brought us out a sample. Raw garlic is not something you want to sample. Anyway, we enjoyed our meal, but probably would not go back to the restaurant for dinner since there are so many other restaurants in the area to try. However, we would get the Garlic Lover as take-out any time!

“Great Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Wow! wonderful flavorful food. I had the pineapple fried rice and it was the best I have ever had. It was well presented and the flavors were wonderful.
Very enjoyable. I took friends out on a Friday night. No wait and great service. No one was disappointed.
Cot was very reasonable. Will definitely visit again.

“good food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

One of the nicest atmospheres of any Thai restaurant we've ever been to. Clean, rustic contemporary decor.

Great food. Only tried the panang curry, and "healthy rolls" but we loved both. Curry serving was pretty big. Larger than average for any Thai restaurant.

Service was not spectacular, but it was good. Slightly better than average for a Thai restaurant.

Overall, it was a good value and we'll definitely return next time we're in Alexandria.

“Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Just a block from our hotel and walked by many times experiencing the wonderful smells - finally stopped for dinner. Ate upstairs which was fine and probably quieter. Started with "healthy rolls" and they were tasty. I ordered Pad Kow with chicken and it was great - very spicy which I love. Wife had soft shells and they were nice and crispy. Tried a Pinot Noir from a limited wine list and it worked. Definitely would return.
