“It's The Sauce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great little Thai gem in the heart of downtown Vienna. A classic "hole in the wall" that I am surprised has stayed that way given its numerous dining awards and a positive nod from the Washington Post's venerable food critic. Pleasant attentive service and a wide menu with all the Thai classics and more. Great Tom gai soup and a series of good entrees around the table, a shrimp, chicken and beef. You'll want more rice so you don't leave a drop of sauce. Worth the trip, even if you have to drive out of town to get there.

“It used to be great little restaurant ..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We have been frequenting this restaurant for a few years now.
It was wonderful ... Good food, great service.
The last couple of times it has been a very disappointing experience . The pad Thai was swimming in a horrible sweet sauce and the drunken noodles had hardly any chicken at all.
Not sure what happened to the quality of the restaurant ... We will go somewhere else!

“Favorite Thai place in Vienna.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

There aren't many tables, so it's easier to get in if you go early or on a weeknight, but the food is consistently good and the service is great.

“Convenient and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We eat there frequently because it is nearby. The food is a bit heavy – seems like “country style” Thai food. For the location, with few competitors, it is very good. A small place, which can get a bit noisy as is very popular with the parents of young children. If you get take out, check your order carefully before you leave, as we have had mix-ups.

“The real thing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a very pleasant, small thai restaurant that is moderately priced with authentic food. It is in a strip mall but don't let that deter you from going. The service was very good and attentive. They adjust the spiciness of the food according to your request.
