“Solid if predictable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

They have changed their menu recently and added a few new items - the cherry shrimp was great. Otherwise its where we go to have solid, fresh Asian food. Decor is lovely and upscale in keeping with Reston Town Center and the staff is always very good. Pricing is reasonable.

“impersonal service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I waited a very long time for my food. The food was undercooked and laying in grease. My waitress then disappeared and I had to stop another waiter to ask for my check.

“for hearty appetities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Choose your own stir-fry ingredients works well. The sauces we tried (from a wide selection) were quite good. Desserts not that great. Attentive service and fairly quick. It's popular so go early if you can. Noisy (despite the high ceiling), especially near the food prep area.

“this is a great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is one of my favorite restaurants, vegetarian pad thai is my favorite. The restaurant is very busy, so it is best to make a reservation. Because it is always packed, it gets noisy sometimes. They have a gluten free menu and a vegetarian menu. It is a favorite with diverse groups because they serve curry and thai food.
