“Good depending on what you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I've had both good and not-so-good experiences here. However, since the majority of the time it's been pretty good, I keep going back. The Massuman Curry with Tofu is pretty delicious. However, I order the Pad Thai with Tofu one day and found quite a lot of small pieces of meat mixed into the noodles (although I had specified that I was vegetarian).The food is a pretty good value and it is usually only 10 to 15 minutes from the time of ordering to the time the food is ready. I'll go back, but I am extra cautious to stress what I am ordering now.

“Rough round the edges, but great Thai food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

A little rough around the edges... not high end by any stretch of the imagination... but the food is excellent... soups were fabulous and everything was cooked fresh...

Would definitely go back...

“Pricing increased Quantity Decrease Food Quality Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Thai Pilin used to be our favorite Thai restaurant in Northern Virginia. However, the price of the food has been increasing while the quantity and quality of the food decreased. Even my friends at work stopped ordering carry out from them. There is nothing spectacular about the restaurant, it is your typical hole in the wall. The looks of the place never bothered me except now that the food quantity and quality has changed, The wait staff (man wearing glasses) is rude.

“Love this place, worked nearby and ate there almost every week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This is some of the best Thai food I've ever had, and I eat at a dozen Thai restaurants in the DC/NoVA area on a regular basis. This is one of a 3 way tie I have for best in the area. I caution that if you don't do spicy, then this may not be the place for you. Some places, like Busara down the street, put 3 chili peppers on a menu item and you'll never feel it. This place doesn't need chili peppers on a menu to tell you you'll need an extra glass of water and still order the same thing next time because it's that good. Drunken noodles, peanut shrimp and chicken, it's all delicious. Sit at the back to avoid the lunch line and enjoy the pretty art on the wall or go to the Falls Church location if you're looking for a bigger restaurant feel.
