“Great Thai in a Gas station - - you bet ya!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

First off, before you order, make sure to go to their website. They have coupons that saved me 15% of my order. They are always there, you just have to order through the website....

Now to the food, we really like Thai. I've had great, good, so-so, and god aweful bad. This place falls into the solid good category....which in real terms means I am VERY happy with it. The only place I've had better Thai was in Hawaii, and it cost twice as much as this place. The curries are delicious....I could drink the green curry. The drunken noodles are a must try (but spicy which I like). Honestly, I have not had anything there that I would not have again....Stay away from the pad tai...not because it's not good, but everything else is just so good, that it's a waste to eat pad thai in my opinion.

If you like Thai - - give it a try.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I went as part of a 5 person party and it was a little difficult to find since we didnt know it was in the gas station (on the side really). We were a little skeptical at this realization but the food was fantastic! Everyone liked every item that they ordered; eggplant basil, seafood combo, pad thai, beef salad, green curry and the drunken noodles. The dishes were made with very fresh veggies and herbs. I also got the taro custard and another of the party ordered the fried bananas and both were delicious. Highly recommended.

“Great food, simple nice restaurant, genuinely nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We enjoyed a great meal. Started with the garden fresh rolls (great Thai basil taste) and the satay chicken - very nice and tasty, reminiscent of satay on trips to Singapore.

The entrees were great. A rich, sweet and slightly spicy Pad Thai noodles for me and a very hot (he asked) beef green Thai curry for my husband. No room for the Swwet Sticky Rice - I will be back to try that.

The experience was only marred by a (drunken?) woman screaming at the delightful staff, and who believed her rights counted above everybody else. Glad she will not be coming back!

“Don't understand the good reviews...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

I ordered takeout from this restaurant once. I had chicken drunken noodles. I have had this dish at at least 5 different Thai restaurants and this one was by far the worst. I can't imagine what the salt content was...had to be sky high!. Flavor was very strange; not at all in line with this dish elsewhere. Very oily; I at about 1/4 of the dish and threw the rest away. Haven't been back.

“Best Thai in Leesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2011

We have been going to this restaurant since the very beginning. After Royal Thai closed, this Thai restaurant appeared at a local gas station and being the adventurous sorts, dropped by to try it out.
What a surprise! Although it was good when it opened, because of Lucky, the manager for the past few years, it has evolved into one of the most authentic Thai restaurants in the DC area. I think I know what real Thai food is like having spent a lot of time in different areas of Thailand over the past ten years-Thai Pan food is Thai authentic. Try the green curries - unbelievably good!! A++
