“Wonderful find just before a movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

My friends and I have been going to this wonderful little restaurant for years and now that the restoration of the Arlington Courthouse deck has been completed, it's ever so much nicer to eat here. Staff is very warm and hospitable, asking frequently if everything is all right.

I went there to have a light meal before the movie and enjoyed Spring rolls w/sauce and wonton soup -- both were delicious! My friend had the same wonton soup and dumplings which she enjoyed.

Food is priced just right and we didn't have a single complaint.

“Extermely poor service, rude staff.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

avoid at all costs. The staff were just as rude as ever. In decades of dining out, I have never been exposed to such a demeaning eating experience. On a Sunday afternoon, they acted like they owned the place, claimed ther was not a manager present, and for all I know they were probably the owners or related to the owners. NEVER EVER AGAIN.

“Better than average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was close the residence inn where I was staying at so it was convenient. The appetizer sampler was great and decent price for the amount of food. My dinner was the lump crabmeat fried rice and I didn't see any lumps of crabmeat. It was can stuff and had a bit of shell in it too. And the amount of crabmeat they put in was not a good value for the price. I would recommend the appetizers.

“Good thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

It stayed open during the storm which made it a big hit! We ordered 5 dishes and liked all of them. If you don't like spice, order mild.

“Good but expensive for a family with 3 kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Good but expensive for a family with 3 kids. I enjoyed their pad Thai and pineapple rice. The service was excellent. Their fountain drinks were awful, something wrong with the mix.
