“A great neighborhood joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Happened to get take out from here a couple of weeks ago and it was so good that we decided to take some out of town relatives on a recent visit for lunch. We were a group of vegetarians and they were very accommodating of our requests. Reasonably priced as well. Will definitely frequent this place.

“Excellent Thai food at reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The food was great, having excellent flavor! We were a party of 2 and although we chatted for a while after eating, the restaurant staff never made us feel like we needed to hurry and leave.

“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

A great spot! Wonderful fare, has all the usual items you would expect, which by the way are prepared better than the usual way, but there are also a few unusual items you don't normally see. This is good home cooking. Friendly, helpful, super quick service. The price is very right. If you are a Mason student take your parents here!

“Solid Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We visited this place on a whim, when another favorite Thai location turned out to be closed. Lucky for us.

Pad Thai is located in an unassuming strip mall (now - next to Walmart). What you find inside, however, is simple, yet charming place (if you are into restaurant decor, personally I don't care).

More importantly, they serve good quality tasty Thai food that is done just right. The Pad Thai was great, and came in just the right amount (not too much, not too little) - consistent with their name. I was especially glad to see that coconut curry dishes were tasty, not overly spicy but exciting enough. These are often "off" and not every Thai restaurant gets them right. Tasty spring rolls, but fried tofu was a bit bland (though sauces made up for it).

Service was good, perhaps too attentive - probably because we came during the slow time between lunch and dinner. If you are looking for good Thai, this place may be worth a drive down.

“Great hole in the wall for Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Pay attention or you may drive past it. Great Thai place for the authentic Thai dishes one loves to crave.
