“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is such a beautiful little restaurant. We sat outside in the late evening at the pretty little patio tables with umbrellas water fountain gurgling, surrounded by plants/flowers. Food was delicious and very spicy. Elderly husband and wife owners very attentive and friendly.

“Did not meet expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

We were excited about trying something different and were looking forward to a great dining experience at a restaurant with such great reviews. Our appetizer was average if a little bland but the entrees were pretty good. The problem was the service was so slooow. We had a nearby table that was seated just after us that had paid their bill and left before we even got our food! I always measure the quality of a restaurant by my desire to eat there again- not so in this case- just for average food.

“Friendly! Frequent Lunch Spot for work!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I was introduced to this unique place by my boss. Our work was two blocks down right smack in Old Town Fairfax.

The people who work there are always so friendly! They know me by now since my boss and I went here almost every other day for lunch. Thus, they would always wave to me as I walk pass them on my way doing errands around Old Town Fairfax.

Outdoor porch is my favorite! The Pad Thai so far has been the best I have tried in the area! LOVE the spicy red Tum Yum Soup.The other dishes are overall pretty good.

The lunch menu is short and simple with about 7-8 items in it, but it does provide some variety. They do have two lunch packages that are a great deal (comes with soup and/or egg rols).

Dinner menu, of course has more. Dinner is not cheap but not expensive either, definitely affordable for the area.

Clean, cute place to eat. I enjoy the large watercolor paintings inside.

I recommend!

“Our favorite Thai place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

My husband and I really love Thai food, and when we travel, we always have to try the "best" Thai place in town. Well, we will be moving to Fairfax City very soon, and we are so fortunate to have this little gem within walking distance of our new condo. Courtside Thai is our favorite Thai restaurant anywhere. My husband loves very spicy food, and their cuisine is fixed to please him. I prefer a milder spice, and I've never been disappointed either. I love the fact that they grow their own herbs and spices right outside in the courtyard, and you can really taste the freshness. The place is very popular, so don't be surprised if you show up with no reservation and have to wait. It's worth it, though.
