“very good thai restorant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Dining 5 pepole (2 children). Tasty Thai food. Kind and polite service. Not expensive at all. If we come back to D.C we definitely come there again.

“Average Thai food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This might be a good place to have Thai food for American, but the taste was not real Thai, comparing to other places in DC area. I only gave them average score because all the food was too sweet and portion was rather small.

“Could have been better!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We had their happy hour drinks for $6 each, and $4 starters which they offered from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. The Moo Krob (deep fried pork belly) was flavorful and crispy; Larb gai rolls was good although we were surprised that the kitchen could not give us the sauce that would usually come with larb gai. I thought it will be easy for the kitchen to have this since it is a simple blend of lime juice and fish sauce. Tod mun was okay but had better ones from other restaurants. Panang chicken was tasty but the Deep Fried Squid with Basil was a disappointment. It was described in the menu as crispy but it was not. The squid was at least tender and not chewy but not crispy at all, even the basil which was supposed to be crispy was limp. We'll have to go to Thai Square for this dish then which Th Sq has perfected.

Restaurant had ample parking space at the back, and seemed to be popular for carry out or delivery as we saw lots of to-go orders by the cashier on our way out to the parking area. It is also next door to their grocery which offered a wide selection of Asian food items.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We turned to TripAdvisor when we were staying in Arlington - looking for a reasonably-priced restaurant for take-out (other than pizza). We found this one and were not disappointed. The pad thai and simple fried rice were delicious. Service was fast. Everything tasted fresh & homemade. Loved it!
